Favorite YouTube Channels to Support Teachers and Learners

What are your favorite YouTube Channels connected to teaching and learning?

Flashback Alert - Have You Ever Seen the First Video Ever Uploaded to YouTube?
YouTube has come a long way since this video!

YouTube is an incredible resource for teaching and learning. You can learn just about anything on YouTube. There are also many incredible educators and creators uploading new content daily connected to teaching and learning. 

Did you know that every second, one hour of video is uploaded to YouTube? That's a lot of content that can be leveraged to support teaching and learning. Have you ever seen the One Hour Per Second YouTube Visualization Site?

How do you keep track of it all? Where do you go to avoid hours of searching? One way is to find and subscribe to YouTube Channels connected to teaching, learning or specific subject areas. Here are a 6 of my favorite YouTube channels connected to teaching and learning. Right now, I am going to steer clear of anything that is focused on a single content, but if you have a favorite channel regardless of how it could be classified, please share in the comments below or in this collaborative Padlet.
