School is in session on YouTube

So you better not get caught watching baby owl videos on YouTube when you should be in homeroom. Enter YouTube For Schools. YouTube just launched this video service, which encourages schools to curate YouTube educational videos for the classroom. Teachers and administrators can pick and choose from clips from college courses, big thinker lectures, and other videos geared towards getting kids to learn. A neat idea that YouTube incorporated: all the videos are posted without comments and without recommended videos. If you’re like me that’s two big rabbit holes not to get lost in.

If you’re trying to study, then please move along. For those of you who’re not hitting the books, you’re welcome!
