WRDSB YouTube Access

As part of the ongoing review of access to digital resources, the Board is ready to move ahead with allowing access to YouTube as a resource to all staff and students. Activating access will be done in two stages to allow for monitoring and optimization as follows:

  • The wired network access will occur on Monday, February 9, 2015.
  • The wireless network access will occur on Friday, February 13, 2015.

In preparation for this, all staff are encouraged to raise the profile of our character development and digital citizenship programs. There is no substitute for active role modelling. Suggested activities would include:

As you may be aware, YouTube now includes video editing functions. Courses for staff will be developed in this area and offered via PD Place. Additional WRDSB Google Apps resources are available at:
