September So Far: Our Most Viewed Videos of the Month

September 12th, 2013 | by Stephan Maldonado

September is back to school month, and for us here at TeacherTube, that means two things:

  1. More of you are creating awesome, dynamic videos to use in your own classroom and share with other teachers.
  2. More of you are watching videos, taking advantage of the diverse resources TeacherTube members are creating and coming up with interesting and exciting ways to integrate them into the classroom.

Though we’re only two weeks into September, the first week or so of school sees a tremendous increase in the number of teachers searching and posting videos as they look for new lesson materials and make tweaks to their curricula. To give you an idea of what your fellow TeacherTube members are watching, we’ve rounded up the seven most viewed videos of September!
