A common problem exists in many school districts, YouTube videos that teachers love are not able to play in their classrooms. When safe viewing is turned on, many YouTube videos are blocked that do not hold any inappropriate content. Other districts have the controls wide open, which expose their students to content that is not suitable. Set up YouTube video approvals in your district to get at the content you want and block the content you don't need. A little pre-planning and communication is all it takes.
The Southern Regional Institute and ETTC Consortium includes school districts and other regional organizations in Atlantic, Camden, Cumberland, Cape May, Ocean and Burlington counties. The consortium represents approximately 90,000 PreK-12 students and more than 24,000 educators.
