Im busy finalising my planning for ICT / #digitalstudies next year at Key Stage 3 and as part of this I’m looking to build on the Viral Videos that my students created this Year and posted on YouTube. If you want to see some of the results please click here and leave a comment
As well as looking at creating Viral Videos about a current news / interest topics, students will be looking at the success/failure of viral videos, the issues of copyright, validity and investigating the rise of YouTube.
I have been trying to gather some statistics about YouTube usage etc over the past few days and have stumbled over a couple of resources which we could use but as yet nothing in the way of a large data set. One summary was on Malcolm Cole’s blog and Carla Pring’s excellent site. I contacted YouTube and the they pointed me in the direction of a summary of their statistics. My students are hoping to anaylse what people watch on YouTube. To assist them with this we have compiled a questionnaire. If you could take 2 minutes of your time to complete the form we would really appreciate it. I will publish the findings and make the raw data available for other schools to use.
