    i have just created my own YouTube channel to help some of the 2000+ students at my school, I was wondering how many others of you out there value this resource.

    I teach History and RE, and for the GCSE RE students I show them a channel called "MrMcMillanREvis." They find it very useful.

    I teach a bit of A level physics but have not taught lower years for many years as this is now my second subject. I will refer to an experiment I assume the students would have done lower down in the school but often there are bemused, bewildered looks. A quick visit to YouTube and invariably the experiment is there.

    When I was are school the only visual aid we had was a proper film shown in the hall where there was a projector and screen or there were those tape loop machines that had a cassette of film that lasted about a couple of minutes with no sound. The only film I can remember being shown was the Tacoma narrows bridge that twisted and bucked itself to destruction. Does anybody else remember these?

    Been using it for years. It's just one more resource

    What is "the notion of flip teaching"?

    Imagine plumbing which pumps from a sewer rather than flushing into it.

    Flip teaching as I understand it is where the students learn the stuff at home and what they would have done for homework they do in class. I'm sure there's more to it than this but this was how it was explained to us.

    Youtube is handy but I don't record lessons on it or anything. Kids just have such shocking general knowledge it is useful to fill in gaps in context.

    Flipped lessons don't work if kids don't have resources and a safe place for study at home.

    Thanks Vince. I guessed as much.
