eduCanon | Designed for use in blended learning environments

eduCanon | Designed for use in blended learning environments | Web tools to support inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

eduCanon is an online learning environment to build and share interactive video lessons. Teachers begin with any YouTube, Vimeo, or TeacherTube video content (screencasts, Khan Academy, Minute Physics, TED, NOVA, etc.) and transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students. By time-linking activities that students engage with as the video progresses the content is segmented into digestible components - increasing student engagement and, through our real-time monitoring, informing the next day’s lesson planning.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

Embed your questions into the video at strategic points to engage students in higher order thinking.
