How do you use YouTube as a teaching and learning tool?

I would like to share a funny and interesting YouTube video by a professor at Biola University. I think the video is also inspiring on how to get your students’ attention or as induction of a certain topic. In the video, he is going to teach about complex numbers, which have a real part and an imaginary part and also related to the video that he is showing 🙂

So, I can see that I can use YouTube videos to learn great ideas from other teachers on teaching and learning.

I also subscribed to the YouTube Education channel to get ideas or videos to share with students. I also can share YouTube videos as an induction or during the lesson and get my students’ attention or provoke questions.

But, how can I really use YouTube not as a stand-alone video? Ask my students to create and share their reflection of activities on YouTube? Record their science experiments and upload it to YouTube? What do you think on how to use YouTube as a teaching and learning tool?

Any other ideas or experience on how to use YouTube in the classroom? Any issues or concerns? Please leave me comments and ideas! Thanks!
