Yay! … but … you and your students must now to 'sit through' an annoying ad ... and you must select the full screen icon to display the video in full screen mode. Oh ... if only we could make it open in Full Screen mode ... Joe Spanberger (Director of Information Systems at the Kennedy Children's Center in NYC) to the rescue!!!!! Joe suggested and discovered how to alter the URL to automatically open the video in full screen mode. Thank you, Joe!!!
This PowerPoint launch design can accommodate a host of topics:
- If you are conducting a program-wide theme focused on Nursery Rhymes or Fairy Tales, you could create a launch to organize YouTube videos to support that theme.
- Conducting a unit on Apples & Pumpkins? There is a wealth of content on YouTube for that topic.
- You have a student that is obsessed with Dinosaurs? I see a Dinosaur launch in your future.
