Some time in the last week, I shared the following with colleagues on the Google-Certified Teachers (GCT) list:
A colleague recently posted this question, and to be honest, we’ve had the same question in my current district. Any suggestions/ideas?
Students from one of our classes have entered a contest in our Electric Coop. They have uploaded a video to Youtube and it will be seen and judged on content. When I go to see it (and hopefully put it on our website) I see content that shouldn’t be viewed by children next to it. How can I avoid this? We tagged the youtube video with the words: teen, Silverton, electricity, co-op, energy.

And, if you’re feeling really adventurous and edgy (not really), you can also customize the page that appears on the ViewPure site, cutting out extraneous stuff…but that’s a bit more risky and in danger of violating copyright that ViewPure has established. I’ve emailed ViewPure.com to see what might be possible…is this something that could be self-hosted by schools?
