Examining Metaphors, Usage and Views of Secondary School Students on YouTube

Aslıhan Saban [1]


YouTube is one of the social media tools that have become a part of our lives. It is used by many educators as a pedagogical instrument. To determine the perceptions and views students about YouTube can support the effective use of YouTube. For this purpose, metaphors and opinions of secondary school students about YouTube were tried to be determined. In this study, a phenomenological study have been used. Students’ expressions about metaphors and their reasons were coded with free coding and then categories and themes were created. Also, questionnaires were analyzed according to frequency. According to the research results, YouTube has been associated with a technological tool at the highest frequency. In reasons part, YouTube is shown as “everything” at most. Students often use YouTube. YouTube channels related to daily life, online games and entertainment are more followed. Participants want to use YouTube for educational purposes. Few students want to be YouTuber. Many families do not control the time and content of their children on YouTube. School and teacher need to be able to develop activities regarding effective usage of YouTube in the pedagogical context. Besides this, all partners should be informed and participate in training for digital harmony.
