Youtube is a wonderful teaching resource but let's face it, sometimes what shows up around the video makes us cringe as teachers. That's why I use a wonderful website called Safeshare. With Safeshare you simply copy the youtube video URL and paste it into the Safeshare search box. Then Safeshare creates a link without the ads or other suggested videos showing up. Another great feature of Safeshare is that you are able to also download the video and audio to your computer and show it without internet connection. It's definitely a site worth checking out!!
I'm a 7th grade Reading teacher and a technology lover. During the 2011-2012 school year we implemented a BYOD initiative. I hope that you will find some helpful information here.
