Is your school on the tube?

YouTube is an awesome resource for finding videos on everything from crafts to cooking to comedy. My kids and I love to sit around and watch videos, whether they're educational, funny, or just plain silly. From one video to the next, you never really know what you're going to find ... and that's the biggest problem ... you never really know what you're going to find. That's a big problem when you're trying to find videos with your kids.
Enter SchoolTube, a website that lets students, parents and teachers upload and share videos on virtually any kind of topic ... sporting events, science fair demos, or even school news reports. The best part? The content is vetted before it goes live, so it's safe for teachers to use in their classrooms, and safe for parents and kids to use at home.
Check it out with your kids, and ask your school to consider starting their own channel for students to use.
