A presentation digging into learning through
videos. Is it effective or not? YouTube and Education Using Online Video to Support Student Learning and Engagement By: Pamela Sherer &Timothy Shea Types of Assignments 1. listening and writing assignments
watching videos and responding to question to be put on a discussion board YouTube is a fantastic resource that allows the students to connect more to the material, especially with assignment thats force the use of new media. The one thing that the authors do recognize is that videos as they rapidly expand could be hard to harness. By: Alexis Bucher YouTube: A site that started in 2005 and as of 2011 has 70 million videos with 48 hours of video being uploaded every minute. "80% of the videos are from amateurs, 15% are from professionals, and about 5% are commercially produced" (Sherer 57). Conceptual frameworks, theoretical models and the role of YouTube: Investigating informal music learning and teaching in an online music community By: Janice Waldron "YouTube creates spaces for engagement and community formation...that functions in this way peer to peer...[or] groups to talk among themselves and to the broader community" (Waldron, 190). "YouTube videos can play a powerful role in the evolution, growth, dissemination of information and continued sustainability..." (Waldron, 109) The article explores how online media specifically,YouTube, effects music learning groups. For a long time researchers thought that the online community and offline community were separate, but have since seen them as an intertwined entity. Both of theses are examples of why YouTube and the videos that it provides are great tools for the classroom. The article focuses on how music is taught through the use of videos. But videos in general allow the viewer to understand what was said or enable them to repeat the message until they understand it, but it could also bring people into a topic they may have not have been interested in before or those in the community to connect to the professionals in the field. This article pursues the idea of how to get students engaged in the classroom through the use of Web 2.0 tools. As it allows for "online participation, collaboration, communication, and user-based content development" (57). 2. Student Production assignment
creating a video in response to a topic 3. Collecting and Archiving Assignments
collecting online clips for the class community. Relates topic to current events 4. Short Presentation
search for video on that topic and analyze it What are Web 2.0 Tools? "Cool" engagement with YouTube: Part I By: James Trier "age personal or participatory media meaning that the boundaries between audiences and creators become blurred and often invisible" (408) Trier explores this and what role media plays in society during a class through the text: No Logo. "Mosh-Pit Pedagogy" the use of any media to illustrate the theme or topic of the class at that point. Think of this as our show and tell, helping the students understand topics easier. So far, the articles that I have discussed have provided a foundation for the topic on Education and YouTube. The next two articles are two where they use videos as the main pedagogy. Inviting the World into the Online Classroom: Teaching a Gaming in Libraries Course via YouTube By: Scott Niholson Using YouTube as the platform for the class and how this technique affected the learning and the delivery to the students and general public. Why YouTube? access not only to the students in the class, but to a wider audience
this open access promotes learning Freemium Model This idea that by giving away a small amount of information it allows the consumer the knowledge to decide if it's worth the money. Course Structure Weekday videos were lectures
Weekend videos were on specialized topic by a guest speaker The students were required then to produce a video response to one lecture with the addition of discussions on the readings. Impact The course inspired the participants to implement a gaming program at their library.

It also inspired some to pursue the topic further.

It provided the program with a marketing strategy. Learning The Five Lessons of YouTube: After Trying to Teach There, I Don't Believe the Hype By: Alexandra Juhasz An article detailing a professor's class that had been all on YouTube and how she believes that the "site limits the truly revolutionary potential of the technology" (146). Lesson #1: YouTube is not Democratic That the more popular videos are the ones that are the most visible on the site although the premiss of the site is for amateur video.

Popularity, like high school, is a gauge and forms what we know as mainstream culture and media Lesson #2 The corporate ownership limits the form and content of the videos YouTube is easy to get to, to understand, and easy to make.

The signature of YouTube is the everyday person vloging using humor, spectacle, or self-referentiality Lesson #3 distinctions between the professional and the amateur The two types of videos: vlogs and professional
vlogs are usually made by regular people using low technology and are about their lives
professional videos look like mainstream media and can express those ideas of the media Lesson #4 A closed community She states that YouTube is a mess, ironic considering their owned by Google. At this time, it's hard to search, you are unable to comment in real time with no way to post things with your videos forcing people to upload and move their videos to better sites. Lesson #5 Hard to Learn The site was hard to navigate and with its many rules and regulation, very hard to learn from.

The idea that corporation dominate the use show that YouTube doesn't care. wikis
IM (Instant Messaging)
podcasting Things to Remember YouTube was created in 2005 and the class was taught in 2007.

The entire class was on YouTube.

There is an entire section on YouTube devoted to Education. Questions? Question I wanted to leave with you:
