Why would YouTube benefit a classroom more than TeacherTube?

YouTube Compared to other Applications

Although TeacherTube is helpful for teachers and education, YouTube has a lot of benefits for teachers that TeacherTube does not necessarily offer.  YouTube has a much broader variation of videos and subjects than TeacherTube does.  More people are familiar with YouTube and will most likely upload their videos there, rather than TeacherTube.  TeacherTube has a more specified group of videos.  TeacherTube is geared towards lesson plans and instructional videos.  This is a great idea, however, YouTube offers this and much more. The day after the 2008 presidential election, I logged on to both TeacherTube and YouTube.  YouTube had numerous videos about the election on their main page, while TeacherTube had none on their main page.  However, I searched some on TeacherTube and ended up finding only a couple of videos about the election.  I think this says a lot about both of the sites because presidential elections are important in our nation, regardless of who any person voted for.

YouTube Videos


YouTube has many different videos to choose from.  YouTube has most of the same videos as TeacherTube (I obviously cannot search them all) plus they have more videos that offer other educational insights that may not be lesson plans or instructional, but informational.  There are a vast amount of videos that may not be put on TeacherTube because they may not be "educational" however they will aid the classroom.  In all of my Spanish classes here at Purdue, my instructors have used YouTube more than once to show lessons, culture, and other aspects of this language and the cultures that speak it. Since TeacherTube has been around for over a year, I would think that my professors and instructors would use this site, however, I had never heard of it, until this project. 

YouTube Efficiency

YouTube was created in December of 2005 while TeacherTube was created in March of 2007.  This goes to show that YouTube has had more time to smooth out any issues that may come about.  A teacher who blogs about her school experiences, Kathy, said, "I went to the Teacher Tube as instructed only to experience the slow and inefficient design of this internet site." 27 This shows that teachers have experienced problems with the younger and less used website. 
            Although, TeacherTube may have its benefits, YouTube offers the same things plus a lot more.  YouTube is also more accessible and widely used and accepted in comparison to TeacherTube.

YouTube Working with other Applications

Facebook and YouTube work together because Facebook has an application that can link the YouTube videos directly to the website, and YouTube also has a link on the website to allow for videos to immediately be uploaded to Facebook. This can also be used in Myspace and blog entries.   Another application is Google Results. This is beneficial when looking up specific information because there are links to YouTube videos on the information that is being researched.

    There will be more information to come but in the meantime:

    • Most students are already familiar with YouTube
    • They will feel as if they are doing something fun that they would do at home
    • There is more to choose from rather than teachertube
    • TeacherTube is specified
    • You can find almost anything on YouTube

    Just today, November 5, 2008, the day after one the most historic moments in United States History, there are numerous videos on the main page of YouTube about the election.  On TeacherTube there were no videos on the main page about the election.  And after I searched around a little bit on TeacherTube, I only found a few election '08 videos.  Although you have to be careful talking about politics as teachers, elections and voting are very important no matter who you voted for.

    A VERY ROUGH DRAFT 

     YOUTUBE VS TEACHER TUBE
    Although TeacherTube is helpful for teachers and education YouTube has a lot of benefits for teachers that TeacherTube does not necessarily offer.  YouTube has a much broader variation of videos and subjects than TeacherTube does.  More people are familiar with YouTube and will most likely upload their videos there, rather than TeacherTube.  TeacherTube has a more specified group of videos.  YouTube has many different videos to choose from.  YouTube was created in December of 2005 while TeacherTube was created in March of 2007.  This goes to show that YouTube has had more time to smooth out any issues that may come about.

    Hannah I know you have a lot of information to add to this so just post underneath mine anything you would like to add!

      I am not a member of your group specifically however, I am a member of the Teacher Tube group. I know part of this project is to collaborate information across the border within all groups so I thought I would help you guys out on this page a little. The point of Teacher Tube is to aid teacher's with assitive videos. They are generally designed to give teachers ideas for lesson plans, educational videos that go along with a theme, and give examples of science experiments. It's on a smaller scale because they deter unnecessary and random videos from being placed in the forum. It is more of an elitist version of You Tube basically, meant for mostly teachers and students even though anyone can post a video on it.

      I hope that helps!

      While researching the benefits of both YouTube and TeacherTube, it seems that most teachers find YouTube to be much more efficient. One teacher found the use of YouTube to be much easier.  She explained that she was told to use TeacherTube, but experienced the slow and ineffecient design of the internet site.  She had a hard time even finding a video that would fit her lesson plan. Then she worked with YouTube and found it much easier to navigate through and found  the desired video.

    I haven't had a chance to read through all of this but it should be about partner programs that work with YouTube if you want to add a sub-chaapter

    Thank you for the help Samantha!

    I chose a random video on TeacherTube and then searched for it on YouTube and the same video showed up.  This also shows that YouTube has most of these same instructional videos, plus other videos that do aid teachers.
