About Me
Hello Everyone! As a teacher, I've seen how impactful video can be in the classroom. But my biggest problem was maintaining strong pedagogy with engaging video. Like how do you use a NOVA clip that is super engaging to teach a learning objective like 'velocity has both magnitude and direction'? Over the past year, I've been fortunate enough to work with a group of amazing people, offering the teacher perspective, to develop eduCanon. eduCanon makes YouTube work for teachers--preventing students from skipping parts of my screencast/YouTube, adding questions INTO the video that pause it and create an active learning experience, and monitoring each students' progress and proficiency, while providing only the data that leads to actionable next steps. It's cool. It's free to teachers.
