In the last few years, online video has been embraced and reinvented by young people. In this webinar, I would like to examine a number of recent case studies which serve to introduce you to YouTube youth cultures. Be warned – you may be shocked! Finally, I will talk about why an understanding of this can be useful for teachers who work with teenagers.
