MY TEACHER IS YOUTUBER. USING YOUTUBE TO TEACH. DIGITAL WORKSHOP II
YouTube's educational videos are very varied (both in format and in personality), so practically any student from anywhere in the world can find something that interests them. Whatever your inspiration, YouTube can help you bring your ideas to life.
YouTube is a very powerful tool for teachers who want to complement and facilitate classes. We are going to learn to communicate what we want to say in the audiovisual language of YouTube and to record and edit our videos in a simple way. We will learn the basic SEO so that our videos are disseminated and positioned correctly on YouTube and Google. We will use Facebook and Instagram to spread the content of our YouTube channel and thus reach more people around the world. At the end of the course we will have our YouTube channel with all the SEO correctly done, our first uploaded video and perhaps our first subscribers waiting for the next video.

This YouTube content creation course for teachers will be divided into theoretical classes but above all practical classes, creating our YouTube channel and our first video. The course will last 5 hours a day for 5 days, of which there will be 2 hours a day of theoretical explanation and 3 hours of practical both recording and editing. We will also have time to rest and to be able to interact with classmates to exchange ideas and projects related to the course.
Our experienced trainers will support and stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants. We organize networking, cultural, sport and historical activities in order to give participants the opportunity to exchange best-practices and establish professional cooperation and links.
