What it is: Safe Share TV is a fantastic way to share You Tube videos with your students. Safe Share TV removes all distracting and offensive elements that surround a video on You Tube and allows you to share the video with a unique link. Safe Share TV also gives you the option to crop videos before sharing them.
How to integrate Safe Share TV into the classroom: I love the way that Safe Share TV eliminates all of the related videos, comments, links to other videos, etc. from a You Tube video and makes it available with a unique link. You Tube has some excellent videos to use in the classroom on demand. The problem? You Tube can share too much with your students. Related videos may be inappropriate for the classroom, or comments left by others may be offensive. Just today I was searching for a School House Rock video for one of our first grade teachers. I found the video on You Tube but shared it via Safe Share TV so that the distracting content would be excluded. This is the perfect way to share You Tube videos with students on a projector, interactive whiteboard, or as part of a center activity on classroom computers.
Tips: Safe Share TV includes cropping capability for You Tube videos, it is simple to crop videos down to the exact clip that you want to use with students.
