YouTube for SchoolsTeachers want to use the vast array of educational videos on YouTube in their classrooms, but at the same time they are concerned that students will be distracted by the video(s) that aren't appropriate for students. To address the issue, YouTube has launched YouTube for Schools, a network setting that school administrators can turn on to grant access only to the educational content from YouTube EDU, informs Brian Truong, Product Manager.

"Teachers can choose from the hundreds of thousands of videos on YouTube EDU created by more than 600 partners like the Smithsonian, TED, Steve Spangler Science, and Numberphile," said Truong.

He said that YouTube with teachers put together over 300 playlists broken out by subject -- Math, Science, Social Studies, and English Language Arts -- and by grade level to save teachers time searching through thousands of. Teachers can find them listed out at youtube.com/teachers.
