Is YouTube Making Us Smarter? Asks The Idea Channel: Video

This is what the PBS’ Idea Channel has on their mind:

Did you know there’s a place where you can learn just about anything you’d like? It’s true! It’s called YOU TUBE!!! Sure, YouTube has hundreds of thousands of hours of deliciously time-wasting content, but it’s a whole lot more than just a black hole of pet videos and FAIL clips. If you know where to go, YouTube has some of the best educational content on the planet! And although watching Kahn Academy all day might be a bit dry, the creativity of YouTube creators has allowed “education” to be transformed in variety of amazing and engaging ways. YouTube probably won’t replace schools anytime soon, but it’s a pretty rad alternative. So time to stop watching cat videos and get your learn on!
