Jennifer Conti (Ohio) -- Listened to episode on YouTube. YouTube Audio Library. They have a live studio where they do announcements. Lesson yesterday: students go into audio library and pull out sound effects or audio clips that they could use on “Good Morning Mustangs”. Found sound effects for weather and for bells ringing for all-school mass. Came in handy and was able to use it right away! (FYI - GTT uses the “Cockpit” audio for our podcast)

Kathy Hilby (Wisconsin) (YouTube live for schools) -- Great episode on YouTube tips and tricks!  Some questions that arose while listening… Do you know if schools are using YouTube Live to share concerts or performances?  Not having used it myself, I'm wondering if it would be appropriate.

Finally, not necessarily a question but more of a comment.  The tip to insert videos in Google Slides to avoid the "suggested videos" is great!  I'm wondering if this could be an efficient way for teachers to organize videos instead of using a playlist.  It allows notes about the video to be added in the speaker notes. Plus, the presentation could be easily shared among grade level team members so they could add videos they find too.
