Australian and New Zealand educators on YouTube

by Sayraphim on May 29, 2019

Ok, so honestly, I don’t know if this is helpful to my phd or not, but I thought I’d make a list of Australian Edutubers right now. Part of the problem with research into a social media is that stuff changes so fast. But the time you’re ready to publish your phd (or the book you’ve been working on, or the article or anything else), it’s probably out of date. The channels that I’ll list today might be defunct or change focus or YouTube itself might close tomorrow.

But since it’s fun to run along the edge of cliffs, let’s do this!

Tiny disclaimer – I know this is not, and will never be, a complete list. It’s sometimes hard to find the Australian content creators amongst everyone else. But I’ll keep adding to it as I find them and if I’ve missed your favourites/other ones you know of, let me know know in the comments!

Also, all channel descriptions are from the channels themselves. None of them are me, except Monsterthinks. Which is actually me.
