Marlon Gallano from TYD shares some thoughts and a handy infographic on how YouTube videos can be used to enhance in-classroom teaching.
How students gather, view and share data is undergoing a silent revolution, thanks to innovations like cloud computing and touchscreen technology. Although many teachers long for the good old days, they have to admit, they find it far faster and easier to update tests, lessons and books virtually using today’s modern methodologies. Education is becoming globally-expansive, uniting students and educators around the world, thanks to modern teaching methods.
And then there’s YouTube. YouTube videos takes the education transformation to another level. With the availability of a variety of topics, teachers have the tools they need at their fingertips to teach everything and anything they want with ease.
You may have utilised YouTube to figure out how to fix that annoying printer problem or create a weekend craft project, but did you know it provides a variety of interesting learning channels to engage and create a spark in your students?
And if you still insist on using traditional methods of teaching, that’s okay. YouTube is an effective classroom companion to book learning, helping students struggling with a topic or complex concept.
Although students are changing, education can keep up with those changes by embracing innovation. Thanks to modern technology, we can update our classrooms and teaching methods to connect with students and how they want to learn today.
