The COVID-19 pandemic has changed education forever. Accessibility to online learning from videos is absolutely necessary when schools closed down. Majority of Generation Z kids who have a higher preference for learning from YouTube and videos, compared with printed books. That shifting preference is driving my curricula and technological changes in my classroom not only for accessibility 24/7 on Youtube, but also to accommodate the current learning needs of students in a 21st century learning environment. Students extensively use their senses to learn, making learning fun and effective through use of technology is crucial. YouTube ranked the highest as a preferred learning tool. A recent Pew Research Center survey found that 85 percent of U.S. teenagers use YouTube, and 32 percent say they use the video-sharing platform more often than other social media platforms. Videos complement the regular curricula and give students real-life connections about why they’re learning the standards. My students’ tendency to gravitate toward YouTube has to do with the fact that they’ve grown up with this technology and expect it to always be available to them. With this generous donation, I would be able to continue to provide lesson videos to make math accessible virtually anytime and anywhere, with a teacher guiding students through the content.
