How I Use It
I use this in reinforcing what we have learned in ELA. Students are learning phonics and letter names. YouTube Kids has all of the great videos right here for the kids. The best part is that it will remember what videos they watched before so they can easily get back to them. I also like the part that shows relevant videos. I think it would be more efficient if there could be playlists created.
My Take
I'm not sure how secure it is. I can type in some inappropriate words and they wont show, however students can get off on the wrong video quite easily. One of the best features is the speech search. Kids who can't type what they are looking for can easily say it and search for it that way.
