How I Use It
I use Educreations as a way for my students to teach math concepts that they have learned, to enhance their understanding of the skill. It's very easy to use, and once they are familiar with the format, the actual lesson creation can be done rather quickly. The only downside is that when they are recording there is no way to edit if they've made a mistake. I encourage my students to practice before recording to save time. I also create videos teaching skills my students need. I use these quick videos to introduce concepts before teaching, and as a refresher for parents who want to help at home. The educreations community have countless videos on all subjects as well, so if you don't want to create, you can find what you need with a quick search. It's a great resource.
My Take
It's a FANTASTIC tool for students to create and share what they've learned. Very easy and engaging, my students are always asking to create lessons after they've learned new concepts.
