YouTube videos have always been an important part of learning. I've used this tool myself to learn hard mathematical concepts such as linear algebra. With this feature, that is available only for teachers and schools, you can only see important searches for your needs. You filter out all the bad YouTube content, which is useful for me in my classes especially when I am doing a demo. I recommend these to schools, especially to those who need to be competitive in the market; they need to get one.

Youtube for Schools is a resource that allows teachers to show "children" friendly videos in the classroom.

Youtube has separated various videos into useful categories for teachers. In my own classroom, I use this tool to help teach science concepts. My ESL students enjoy watching these videos as it helps them understand.

I would recommend this tool for any classroom. Most students seem to enjoy watching videos!

While YouTube can be a useful educational tool in the classroom, it is also full of videos that may not be appropriate for young viewers. Google has worked with teachers to put together playlists broken out by subject and grade level with completely educational content. YouTube for Schools gives teachers access to these videos while it weeds out the rest. I use a video to complement a lesson in any given subject, and I find that it is a great tool when I am having trouble keeping kids focused. If your school does not have access to YouTube for Schools, I suggest that you speak to your administrator and get it!
