How I Use It
As a social studies teacher, I use this tool to engage students in current event news video clips, crash course videos, and short speeches by the President or public officials. With Educanon, I can select when and where to insert multiple choice, true/false and short answer questions into the video, helping students interact with content by applying their learning in context.
The tool integrates smoothly with Edmodo. Careful selection of and previewing of video takes a significant amount of teacher time, but the raised level of student engagement is worth it. Educanon provides teacher analytics on each question and student. The quality of the pedagogy depends upon the teacher. Another consideration is access to broadband. Streaming video for each students on 1:1 devices requires reliable broadband at school.
