YouTube has been on a bit of a roll lately. In addition to streaming the Presidential debates this month and improving their YouTube TV feature, the online video site just announced they have broken the 1,000 educational channels mark, just in time for last week’s World Teachers’ Day. But that’s not all. Google also created a YouTube EDU Creator Playbook Guide, that encourages and aids educators in learning from one another to in turn help their students. The guide also helps teachers learn how to target a bigger audience and how best to use YouTube features like annotations and notes. Educators are encouraged to check out, which is the site’s central hub for education. Couple all these features with the recent news that YouTube is working on adding interactive quizzes to their videos, and the classroom of the future is continuing to change and evolve in front of our eyes. Let’s just hope educators utilize all the tools that Google has given them.
