Mar 17 2015 • 55 mins

You’ve heard about YouTube bringing some people fortune and fame. Justin Bieber? Susan Boyle? Sites such as YouTube allow anyone with a camera and a computer to create and post their own video. So, do YouTube and other participatory forms of social media empower us? Do they allow everyone to speak their voice and to forge their own path? Or, do they give us a false sense of reality? My guest, Alexandra Juhasz, teaches the popular college course, Learning from YouTube, which examines how the internet and YouTube have changed the way we learn. Join me as we discover whether a participatory platform such as YouTube insures diverse, meaningful, and innovative content. So, whether you frequently submit or view YouTube videos; or whether you are dubious of its benefits, YouTube is streaming and is here to stay. It is in the boardroom, and, let's admit it, in the bedroom…so tune in this week to find out how to (and how not to) use YouTube to empower your own life. LISTEN (don’t “watch”!)
