Is YouTube Making Us Smarter?

Public Broadcasting System's Idea Channel on YouTube has posted a new video.  Watch at least the first part, in which Mike Rugnetta surveys the learning opportunities available on YouTube. (You might want to subscribe to this Channel, and receive emails when new videos are posted.)

If you follow Mike's advice, and investigate a subject/skill/question you're curious about through YouTube, you will most likely get to exercise your search skills, evaluate the information received (along with the delivery mode, or quality of the video), and, just as with a web page or ordinary paper book, decide if the information is reliable, informative, and worth your time.

If you think it meets your standards, look at a few of the other videos on the channel, and if you like them, too, then subscribe to the channel.  You'll receive an email when new videos are posted to it.
