    #PLN-what sites would you recommend for safely playing Youtube videos for preschoolers? In the past I've heard educators use https://safeshare.tv/, but I'd love to hear about others!

    If you've seen this message posted elsewhere, I'm trying to reach all of my colleagues. Thanks!

    We also experimented with a few different options - SafeSafe, SafeYoutube, etc and ran into a few problems (most of which were resolved eventually).
    Something that we are considering for this purpose is EdPuzzle. It's possible to add a video with no questions or prompts, and then create a public share link. I'm not sure if this is available in the free version, but it is certainly available in the paid version.
    Hope this helps!

    I have used a site called ViewPure. You copy and paste the YouTube URL and it creates a new URL that 'purifies' the video. There is only a video block on the new site and none of the advertisements. Just as Marcus said, EdPuzzle is another good alternative. Hope this helps!

    The one that learned about from other ISTE members is PureView (http://www.viewpure.com/). Hope this helps!

    Most of these ideas have already been presented, except for the one where you put the video in a Google Slide.

    I used to use SafeYouTube until a YouTube creator contacted me through Twitter and said it doesn't connect back to YouTube for view counts making it questionable since the data may be stored on SafeYouTube's servers and not giving the creators credit for views.

    I started using ViewPure, but then taught our kindergarten teachers how to use Wakelet to add videos. Wakelet Playlists YouTube video  It's perfect because you can add Flipgrid videos, links, text, images, and text can be opened with Immersive Reader for read aloud, translation, and other features. Set up a unit with all the resources and the YouTube videos open in a new screen with no distractions.

    Thank you all! I like the idea of a Wakelet collection, so I'm going to keep that in mind for the future. I want to keep it simple since this is for a teacher who has not used as much tech in the past.

    Here's what I've found from my other resources as well:

    Totally understand. As a tech trainer, my goal is always to find the easiest solution for the teacher. :)

    The kinder group I introduced it to first are self-admittedly NOT techie and they found Wakelet quite easy to use, easier than making playlists in YouTube, which was their focus.

    If looking for safer videos, there's always Schooltube.

    SafeYouTube.net may violate copyright. At one point, safeshare.tv was charging. Haven't checked it lately. ViewPure was a little glitchy for me, but Wakelet has worked most consistently.

    If you are a Microsoft district, another option would be OneNote since you can simply paste a YouTube link and the video embeds or Sway. :)

    I love the Waklet idea! But I think for my district being able to go out into YouTube or having the related videos pop up at the end might be problematic for the primary classroom.
