Another month, another exciting collaboration! We’re joining forces with Khan Academy and Wacom as a part of a month-long celebration of the edtech skills you gained this year. This time, you can show off a video you’ve created and win a prize!
The meaning of video lessons in times of remote learning
There’s no doubt that both 2020 and 2021 have been a challenge. If any good has come of all this for educators, it’s the skills that they have gotten the chance to gain. Countless teachers have learned not only how to present knowledge online, but to do it using engaging and effective techniques. One of the best ways to teach remotely asynchronously is to create video lessons and share them with students. Videos can be watched anytime and anywhere, and students can also rewatch lessons if they need a little more time with certain material.
“Creating a clear and engaging video explanation of a complex concept is a great way to demonstrate mastery and to help others understand and love the subject, too.” Sal Khan
Teaching with explainer videos is also perfect in the hybrid school model where some students are physically in the classroom and the rest join remotely. Live recording lessons are a fun way to create educational video material that can be shared with your students and revised anytime.
Do you know how to create a video like Sal Khan himself yet?
Sal Khan, a well-known educator and the founder of Khan Academy can be called the father of educational videos, having proven their importance and effectiveness many times over. One of his main priorities is for people to avoid overcomplicating things.
A video explanation can be a simple recording of things you’re saying, typing, highlighting and showing – and more often than not, that is perfectly good enough!
Take a look at this example of a simple video explanation 👇
Explain Everything provides lots more options to supercharge your video, but it’s also perfect for creating the simplest of recordings. When you’re ready to show off your own explainer video, you can send it over for a chance to win some prizes!
The Khan Academy contest “Make Your Own Khan Video” will last until 28 June.
