The scenario is always the same: I am inspired by a story, idea, video and find what I'm looking for on You Tube. In this last instance, I was very excited to be able to share the video with my students so we can start a class-based discussion about it. I won't be doing that, though.
I won't be showing the video in class (from its You Tube site) because, while the subject matter is G-Rated, the comments are not. It seems that there's always one commenter who insists on using f!@# in his posts. I know the video can be embedded in a blog or on a web page but that's not the point.
Yes, there's Teacher Tube but it's limited. Much of the material I find on You Tube is not there. In this case, with a little more searching, I found what I was looking for at Apple (an inspiring tale of an octogenarian chorus that sings rock and roll.)Tweet this!
