I teach students of class third. I have realised that healthy competition is an effective measure to make students try harder and perform better in their studies. I have created a YouTube channel and it helps me in documenting my classroom activities and teaching methods. I have announced in my class that whoever does the best activity, I will record their video and upload it on my YouTube channel.
To my amazement, this has inspired the students to do better.

The children are so keen that they check with me everyday about the comments, likes and subscribers of our YouTube channel. In the process, they also get up-to-date with education-related developments.
It feels really good to see that the humble initiative of launching a YouTube channel is now encouraging so many tiny tots to develop a passion for studying. These days, students have access to their parent's mobile phones, they use it anyway. I think if they are going to use phones, be it for their good rather than wasting time on social media or playing games.
