jgeanangel’s TeacherTube about using Google as a calculator. TeacherTube uses exactly the same technology as YouTube, but aims to stay clean and safe for use in schools and colleges. YouTube is widely blocked by the content filters that Colleges in the UK use (a poll on blocking policies is being organised on the ILT Champions mailing list), and a version of YouTube that actually stays useable will be welcome.

The community policing model may just work here as teachers (and students) have a vested interest in keeping TeacherTube clear of inappropriate material so the site can remain unblocked.

Now why can’t we have BECTaTube? Only available to teachers in UK schools and Colleges, and requiring proof of status to publish?
