Youtube has plenty of educational content, from Photoshop tutorials to great speeches from history, just about ever content area can be found on the site. Unfortunately, a ton of inappropriate content can be found too. How can you keep the good yet protect your students from the bad? TeacherTube may be the answer. It's a youtube-like site that has many of the same features yet has some protection built in to keep out the bad. In the past, educators have found that no matter how stringent a site is on content, it's always possible that something could sneak through and make it to your students. Evaluate the site, see if there's good content and if you feel comfortable using it in the classroom.
