What Do YouTube Videos Say about Public Education?
SAGE Open, v8 n1 Jan 2018
In this study, YouTube videos concerning public education were identified and evaluated. The researcher typed the term "public education" into the YouTube search bar and then analyzed the first 60 videos provided by the site. Two coders (the researcher included) independently coded the videos as either negative, neutral, or positive in light of the following question: "Is public education portrayed in this video in a negative, neutral, or positive manner?" The theory of Internet information gatekeepers and the theory of social construction of reality provided the theoretical framework for the study, and the results were discussed through the lenses provided by these theories.
