YouTube access & permissions

SFUSD staff and students can watch videos on YouTube, and a student's ability to watch specific videos depends on the device and wi-fi network the student is using. District-managed devices and wi-fi networks have more restrictions in place than personal devices and personal networks.

Only SFUSD staff can upload videos to YouTube. As of September 2021, Google does not allow student accounts to upload videos to YouTube, but student videos can still be uploaded to Google Drive and/or submitted via Google Classroom.

The thinking and questioning of students is the focal point. Students build connections to prior learning and experiences, and are independent learners who make their thinking visible.

Students interact in meaningful ways through conversation, or participation in collaborative structures. The educator serves as facilitator and a collectivist or communal approach is used.
