YouTube Becoming YouCan: Building School and District Culture through Multi-Media

Nathan Grey, Principal, and Jon Myers, Director of Curriculum and Professional Development, presented a very entertaining and motivating session on how they had used remakes of popular YouTube videos and commercials to engage, entertain and inform their teachers and students. This dynamic duo from Noble Public Schools, Oklahoma greats short videos to welcome teachers and students back to school, encourage them in learning opportunities and even go over the basic rituals and routines of the school and district. At Hubbard Elementary, Principal Nathan Grey, even broadcasts the daily news show live on the internet so that parents can be involved. Subscribe to their channel on YouTube and start figuring out how you can use multi-media to engage your audience. Check out this incredibly creative video they used to start the year last August:

You need to send them the Fairy Godmother and Indiana Phillips! These guys would REALLY appreciate it!

Yes, I agree with Mrs. Timmons. They would really appreciate some of our clips from CCE.

They are branching out into green screen work for next year - I gave them links to all of ours so far to give them some ideas!

I would love for us to live stream student productions, live model lessons and meetings to parents via the internet. I can't wait to hear more about what they are doing!

I think you should send them the theme video for next year. What character will you be playing?

I love the school use of YouTube. It is amazing how many educational uses it has :). My latest find are movies for children's books. Great way to find information and share information in such a fun way!
