|Wrapped Yarn Project|
Learning with YouTube ....Pinterest has recently became my new best friend. I am such a visual person and I love being able to save a picture that is linked to a resource I can use. One of the resources I saved was how to wrap large letters with yarn. This project looked very doable for this "Do It Yourself" person. After I was done with that project I had lots of yarn leftover. As a young girl I watch my mom crochet tons of different items. I thought to myself what the heck I should give crocheting a try.
Since I have really never been very good at crocheting I thought I would do a little research on YouTube and find some video clips that would help me with this new project. Within minutes of my research I found several videos that went step by step on how to do a simple chain pattern. What I loved the most about learning via a Youtube video is that I can pause and go back as many times as I needed. After a few fail attempts I was able to make a baby doll blanket for my Angel's baby doll she had gotten for her birthday.
As a teacher and teaching technology skills and Ancient History I see many benefits of using YouTube in the classroom.
