Daniel Thurmond's curator insight, April 13, 2014 11:21 AM

This tool is great for both reinforcement of topics or even for primary student learning. It is a resource where a huge number of concepts are taught by an instructor voicing over the video. The instruction is sound and easy to understand. It could be used to solidify a concept or be the students first encounter with the topic. It can be used at the infusion level but mostly will be used at the adoption or adaption level. 

omri kagan's curator insight, July 16, 2014 1:41 PM

 

Do you earn better from videos?  Did you have a bad day in class and couldn't pay attention?  Did you not understand the content the way that I presented it?  

 

Visit the Khan Academy and you will find an extensive collection of excellent video tutorials about geometry as well as several other topics.  The service is free!
