6 Excellent YouTube Channels Created by Inspired Teachers

by Kelly Walsh on July 30, 2015



Outstanding Math, Science, Art, History, and Social Studies Content for Flipped, Blended, or Traditional Classrooms!

A HUGETHANKS!” to Hip Hughes, who responded to a tweet I wrote the other day seeking great YouTube channels created by teachers. He singlehandedly provided what I needed for the post I wanted to write!

Check out these outstanding channels of content created by a half dozen different inspired educators. Many of us wish we were creating fun content like this, but it takes a ton of time, lots of talent, and serious dedication! Much thanks to these hard working, motivated teachers who have provided fun learning content and a fantastic example to inspire our own creativity!

Hip Hughes

Keith recently signed with LeftField Pictures and is currently a talking face on the H2 show, “United Stuff of America” and filming for “American Badasses”.

HipHughes History is a series of upbeat, personable and educational lectures designed for students and lifelong learners. Videos primarily focus on US History and Politics but span across World History and general interest.
