My son LOVES his video playlist. He is a 10 year old with a rare genetic condition called Williams Syndrome. He started out with limited interests when he was younger. Now he has many, and he is very devoted to them. We have stacks and stacks of books about dinosaurs, trains, monster trucks, Native Americans, etc.... He used to love to search images on the web and sit and look through page after page. Finally we found videoplaylist.org. I have finally been able to start putting the books back on the shelf where they belong, instead of in a pile in the middle of the floor :) (he still loves his books, but isn't so rigid with them)
Also, I don't have to run to the computer to type in a new word every time he wants to look at different pictures.
It is such a cool tool. I say tool, because it really is a great motivator for my son. We use his videos as an incentive to do things that he has to do. If he does what is expected, he gets his half hour per day on the computer.
We've just really had a ton of fun making him his own page. He calls it his 'space'. Despite being so fun, he is learning computer skills without realizing it.
anyway, check it out!
