We’ve all been in this scenario before: surfing the internet to study our lessons or to research for a project. But after a moment, you realize that you’ve wasted an hour or so scrolling on your feeds, laughing at random memes, or watching your favorite videos on Youtube. Sounds familiar, right?
Class lessons may seem boring. But what if we tell you that there’s an easy way to learn your subjects? Microlearning is a kind of learning method where information is presented in small “nugget-sized” entertaining content. Luckily, you can find bite-sized, educational videos on Youtube. These Youtube videos will help you understand complex subjects without getting overloaded with lots of information.
Whatever your Senior High School strand is, here are helpful Youtube channels that are sure to beef up your learning:
