YouTube for Schools allows teachers and students to access educational videos. However, educators across sectors need to embrace the notion of students as 'produsers'. Consuming videos needs to be supplemented with student created videos. This session will take you through the process of setting up a student video project and how to assess it. Youtube for schools is school-appropriate and therefore the best platform for publishing videos by school children and for creating a classroom video channel. This session will also discuss ethics in relation to children's use of videos in and out of the classroom and the importance of educating children to be responsible 'produsers'.
