Summarized by Sangyoon Park

The author explains that there is a vast amount of information available to students on Youtube. Of the many Youtube sources, students should be able to judge critical thinking about what content is beneficial to them.
Rather than explaining concepts to students, they can develop their ability to think through discussions.
The authors give examples of classes that apply YouTube to five different subjects. In English classes, we show criticism related to texts and discuss them accordingly. In social studies, the teachers show images of current events in various ways. Through this method, students can understand that an event will change in meaning depending on the interpretation. In mathematics and science, teachers could find videos that illustrate concepts to broaden students’ understanding.
