Ben Levy, co-founder of eduCanon, talks about the power of video and how placing control in the hands of teachers ignites learning for students. Levy and eduCanon have been named Named Forbes 30 under 30 in education and to the AT&T Aspire Program respectively.
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.
