Social media has virtually taken over this world and instead of discouraging students from using it at school, I think it is important to use it as a way to teach them. They obviously feel connected through it so why not use it to our advantage? Much like the blog assignment, this YouTube channel assignment is a way for students to express their feelings and thoughts. For those who are more visual learners, this is a way to transform blogging into a more intriguing way to journaling. Each week students can upload a video of them talking about a topic or issue that they feel passionate about and they have the liberty to edit the video or add cool effects. It’s an interactive way for students to bring their thoughts to life. This is an assignment that can work for any grade in high school.
