YouTube is an excellent resource, especially for educators. I subscribe to various channels that focus on educational technology. Here is just a small sample of those available.
Evernote – Evernote is a great tool for organizing your life and can be transformative in the realm of education. Their YouTube channel hosts how-to’s for all levels (beginners, intermediate, advanced) and covers a myriad of topics. They have material directed at various industries (education, business, cooking, etc) and their videos are readily accessible and useful. If you’re an Evernote user or want to become one, peruse their content here.
MacMost – I’m a heavy Apple user… no doubt about that. MacMost focuses entirely on instructional videos relevant to Apple Users. It has dozens of videos on a myriad of apple topics (software, hardware, news, etc). If you’re a Mac User, it’s a must! Check out their channel here.
Edutopia – Edutopia is one of the most prominent Educational Technology blogs for American Educators. Their YouTube Channel hosts webinars, Ted Talks, pedagogy, and application. What makes it especially helpful is that they subscribe to and post resources from applicable sources around the world. It’s a rich resource for all educators. View their YouTube Channel.
Microsoft Office – Office is still the most prolific office suite today. We all have to use it at some point. The Office YouTube Channel can answer every question you ever had (and a few you never imagined) about Microsoft Office. Learn how to create stunning PowerPoint presentations, build templates for Word, explore One Note, and see where the suite is going in the future.
MindMeister – MindMeister is my favorite online Mind Mapping service. I use it in my classroom and for my own brain storming sessions. Their YouTube Channel shows you how to do amazing things with this simple yet innovative program (with free and paid tiers)!
Anson Alexander – Anson Alexander is a tech guru of all realms… all of them! If you want to know about current trends in technology, how to use the new features of google drive, how to troubleshoot your iPhone, Anson has answers for you. Check out the various feeds on his YouTube channel.
Google – It’s hard to go a day without using google (be it their mapping system, email, even YouTube videos). If you want to harness the power of Google Apps, then check out the highlighted features of their YouTube Channel.
This is hardly an exhaustive list, but it is a great starting part for anyone interested in further understanding technology. I hope that you find these useful and please be sure to share your own!
