ShareD YouTube Playlists- Create a playlist with multiple collaborators

One shared video on Facebook got me sister-in-law shared this super fun video today, mostly (I think) because the guy with the glasses has a hilarious dinosaur dance move:

That video led me to think about how perfect and fun these videos would be for brain breaks in the classroom...

which led to making a YouTube playlist so I could keep them in one spot...

which got me thinking...why keep them to myself?  What if my teaching partner wants to add a video she/he found...

...which led me to wonder about shared YouTube playlists where different people can add to the same list!!! awesome would it be to lead through technology and START a shared playlist for:

  • grade level teams (Brain Breaks, videos for science content, etc.)
  • Entire sites (motivating/inspiring videos, Kid President snippets for morning announcements)
  • An entire District (Teaching strategies, district-wide grade level lists- talk about collaboration across sites!!!)
Here's how you do it!  (It's so easy...)

1. Sign in to YouTube.
2. On the left hand side, click Library.

3. In the upper left hand corner click 'New playlist.'

4.  Give your playlist a title and add videos by clicking 'Add videos.'

5.  Once you have your videos, select 'Playlist settings.'

6.  Now choose the 'Collaborate' tab.  Turn on collaboration by clicking the button so the blue check mark appears.  A button will appear that says 'Get Link.'  Click for the link; copy and paste so you can invite collaborators!!!

Now you have a shared playlist that anyone can add to, as long as they have the link!!!  You are still the 'owner' so you can monitor additions as needed.
