Thing # 20 You Tube and Teacher Tube

I have never been a big fan of Youtube. It's not that I don't like it but I just never went on it unless a friend wants me to check out a funny video. I did enjoy watching some of the vidoe youtube has to offer. I found a lot of library rap videos which were very funny. I didn't realize there were so many library videos out there. I did find one that I thought was funny. It's about annoying library patrons. Take a look at the video if you have a chance.

I really didn't know much about Teachertube until recently. Ever since I got my active board this year, I have been using technology at lot in my classroom. I use Brainpop and Discovery Education all the time. I did look on TeacherTube the other day. I found some great Poetry powerpoints that I can use. I like how TeacherTube categorizes there vidoes from recently added to most popular. I found one video about classroom rules that I thought was funny. The second part of the video is what is the funniest.

Classroom Rules

I think YouTube and TeacherTube are both great tools we can use in the classroom.


  1. I am glad you have changed your thoughts about YouTube...there are so many good things that can be used as support for all kinds of lessons!

    The link to the TeacherTube video you included goes to a sign in page. I tried finding the video by that title on the main search page and not sure I found what you wanted us to see? You may want to double check that link!

  2. Thanks for the info. I went back and fixed the link. It should work now.

  3. Great work you have done for your blog...
