YouTube: Shifting from Consumers to Curators to Creators

Session Description

YouTube: Shifting from consumers to curators to creators. During this session we will look at how you and your students can start with consuming on YouTube, by navigating to a great collection of YouTube videos for education.  Moving along to curation, we will share playlists and embedding into other Google Apps For Education.  Lastly we will shift to creators by setting up your own account and lessons where students can create their own videos for various applications in elementary and secondary.  This works from a BYOD classroom, to a single class iPad/Tablet or a 1 to 1 environment.
