25 Useful YouTube Sites For Teachers

When many teachers and parents consider YouTube, they think of a website filled with useless content and music videos.

The truth is that YouTube really isn't just a waste of time. There is a huge library of amazing resources to be found there if you know where to look.

Luckily, Richard Byrne at Free Technology for Teachers offers a helpful list of 25 useful YouTube accessories for teachers. These "accessories" are websites and apps that can transform YouTube into a valuable educational tool you can use in the classroom or at home.

For example, Byrne lists "A Cleaner YouTube", which is a browser plugin that strips all advertising, comments and related videos from the YouTube site so that students can watch specific videos without getting distracted by other content that isn't always appropriate.

Another great resource is a tool called < href="TubeChop">TubeChop which lets you actually clip out sections of YouTube videos that you want to share, while leaving out the rest of the video that you don't really want to include as part of your lesson.

Other interesting tools listed by Byrne to transform YouTube includes the YouTube clipping tool Splicd, the YouTube mixing tool Drag On Tape, and a service called EmbedPlus which lets you not only skip, slow down or zoom into videos, but it also lets you annotate parts of the video with notes or links that you feel are important to your students.

Explore Byrne's full list of suggestions at Free Technology for Teachers.
