This is an example of the work we want to do Togha Tix.
What we can learn from Khan Academy:
1.) There is an amazing opportunity to teach the technical skills through online videos.
2.) There is something naturally engaging about a presentation with the subject removed.
3.) The 'pen effect' as I call it, is also naturally engaging. If you have ever taught for more than 2 years, you have probably already learned about the art of simplicity. Students watch the marker as long as you don't say the word first. Guessing is fun!
4.) Someone fumbling with their words or veering in and out of ideas can be distracting.
Imagine the future of these videos with people who have been trained by an actual classroom to use distraction as a tool for engagement!
