The Prevalence of YouTube in Education

According to a study by Pearson Education, YouTube is changing the way educators think as some school districts even have their own YouTube channels accessible for both teachers and students. According to this report, generation Z students, classified as being between the ages of 14 and 23, believe that YouTube is a bigger contributor to their education than textbooks. Education in America is shifting from more traditional methods of learning through text and lesson plans to more technological methods such as YouTube videos and other virtual platforms.
