Well today I am going to share with you a way to download a You Tube video so that you can either save it to your computer or to a usb stick and then play it at school without any worries.
I wish I had known about this before the time I put a You Tube video up about the solar system and one of my darlings pointed out the swear word in the comments. The walk of shame to the Principals office to inform her of my gaff was enough to turn me off You Tube forever, which would have been a real shame because there are so many great videos that support our teaching.
So let's get to it! This is super easy by the way.
First find the You Tube video that you want to download. My class loves Storybots and we are looking at days of the week so I chose this vid
Then add an ss just after the www. and before the youtube bit in the address bar, just like in the pic below
That is pretty much it, you will see it downloading in the corner of your screen, then just save it to where you need it :) too easy right!
I hope this was helpful and that you will now never suffer the embarrassment of having to explain to your kids and Principal about swear words in the comments.
