Share YouTube Videos with Students? NEVER! Unless...

There is an expansive universe of educational, engaging, and entertaining videos in YouTube.

So would I share YouTube Videos with my students?  

NEVER!!!  ...Unless...I can make them safe.  
How I do that is the subject of this video.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  Please share any feedback.
