YOUTUBE FOR YOU

A History Teacher finds it unfortunate—though also understandable—that many school districts block access to YouTube, the video-sharing Web site. He explains the possible educational uses of the site that schools are missing:

The ability for students to easily share school projects is lost (at school). Additionally, there are videos on YouTube that potentially could be used in an educational setting. It could be video clips from a television program, an expert discussing a specific topic, or maybe just some nice home movie footage of a place you are teaching about.

But don't despair. Ever the troubleshooter, A History Teacher also offers a clever workaround—and it might not even get you into trouble.
