Regardless of whether you buy into or are critical of the whole Kahn Academy concept, most people agree that providing on demand learning resources is a good idea. With the new ShowMe App, any teacher can become the next Sal Kahn making educational tutorials for your kids or for the world. Or you can do what math teacher Eric Marcos does on his terrific MathTrain.tv site and let kids be the movie makers.

What's nice about the ShowMe App is that they take care of all the details. Just open the App on your iPad and all the tools are built in and upload is a piece of cake.

Here's a video to ShowYou how it works.

Did you ever feel frustrated that in school you are supposed to spend all this time studying, taking tests, completing worksheets and handing in reports with no audience beyond the teacher and after years of that all your left with is a pile of tests and papers nobody cares about?

Profile of a Passion-Driven Student by Lisa Nielsen

While today’s data driven educational system is hard at work churning out numbers that make testing companies profitable, are easily quantifiable for politicians, and make for a nice, neat system on which to rate teachers and students, in the end, our children are often left behind with a degree in hand and no idea where to go next.
