A Journey into the Teaching Experience

A site maintained by teachers for teachers

SchoolTube: upload and watch school related video and tutorials.

schooltube

SchoolTube is a free site which lets students and teachers share videos with each other . There is no need to register in order to search and view videos. However, if one wants to upload videos, s/he will need to register. This site is very safe, in fact, when one uploads a video, it goes into a “holding” area. It stays there until an approval by the website’s moderator is done. This layering of approval, poses no security concerns to students and schools.

Teachers need to be careful what to post about their students. Hence, one should check the school policies and obtain parents permissions. This site is ideal for all subjects in the curriculum. Teachers may want to use it to share ideas and lesson plans with other teachers. It can be also used as a tool for assessment, where the teacher assesses the students on the video that they had created on SchoolTube. For students, it is an alternative way of learning, which is much more engaging than the traditional way. One can also embed SchoolTube on the school website or enable parents to access it. This will aid the parents to follow their children’s work and progress.

Its relatively easy to set up a SchoolTube channel for classroom and in the following link there are step by step instructions to help you out: http://www.ehow.com/how_7800678_set-up-schooltube-channel-classroom.html
