I recently stumbled across a very impressive app called Lomics on a friend’s page and decided to try using it for my daughter’s karate class. The result was incredible. Instead of an hour long video, I received one . This generated an “ah-hah!” moment where I realized I could use Lomics brilliantly with my students. As a former tutor of economics at San Diego State University and a teacher of Russian cinema for children in the Russian School San Diego at UCSD, I identified two ways in which Lomics can truly assist in my teaching.

Lomics lets educators produce material that is in line with the environment the new generation of students have grown up in. I have only had an opportunity to scratch the surface of all Lomics has to offer, but here are two opportunities that I hoping to put in place.
