    Blocked for students but not teachers.

    I personally think it can be a useful tool, but (needless to say) the teachers never employ suitable caution. I've seen them search for a topic whilst projecting their screen to the Smartboard and fail to notice that in the comments below the Martin Luther King clip they were showing were a bunch of CAPITALIZED SWEAR WORDS .

    They demand it open! If I block it I get a bunch of teachers come up moaning to unblock it.

    I've just blocked it nowwwwwwwww at 9:30AM.............lets see when I get the first email or teacher come up moaning to unblock it
    Tell them that you will only approve certain videos on a case by case basis and will only unblock them if they are needed for the lesson, or tell them to send you a link to the video and you will download it and place it on the network for them.

    Last week we found a video on Youtube of some students fighting in the school corridor.

    I was asked to get it removed, clicked the button to flag it as inappropriate, two more to set why.

    It was removed within 2 minutes.
    maybe you got lucky or someone flagged it before you but it took almost a week (5 days shortest - 8 days longest) for the videos to be removed.

    We've been told we have to block YouTube by our BB Consortium and L.E.A - for both staff and students due to 'unfiltered content', which can't be 'filtered appropriately'.

    Fair enough I suppose.

    Caused a lot of anger between staff as they loved it for resources - but we just told them to prepare more and (if youtube offers the download link under a video) download it and bring it in.
