We’ve featured a number of education sites recently, in anticipation of the release of our brand new education faves page, and a growing trend we’ve noticed is a desire to “democratize” education – using the internet to allow absolutely anyone to teach or learn absolutely anything they want. ShowMe is another contender in this category, with an added Apple-shaped twist…
One of the biggest potential strengths of ShowMe lies in its iPad platform: If you want to create a lesson for anyone on the internet to view and learn from; or you’re a teacher and you want to create an extra tutorial for your students that they can view online from home; or you’re a teacher that wants your pupils to learn by actively teaching the subjects they’re learning (an interesting teaching method!)… then ShowMe could be exactly the teaching tool you’ve been looking for!
If teaching ain’t your bag, ShowMe is also great for free online learning. I felt like learning some Chinese, and so clicked on the Chinese language subject box, and dove straight into a ShowMe someone made, and learned something new, absolutely free!
Whether you want to find new, interesting ways to teach in your classroom; create a free lesson or tutorial on a subject you think you’re an expert in; or just learn something new for free… ShowMe is an interesting website/iPad app worth your consideration!
