even formative checks on understanding

04:49 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Have students take BrainPOP quizzes and email me the results.

04:49 - Patti Ruffing

04:50 - Peggy George
we should have had "other" :-)

05:11 - Peggy George

He will be using app sharing to demonstrate things for us so it may challenge your bandwidth at times--especially if you're on a mobile device.

08:50 - Peggy George (eduCanon: About Us)

09:14 - Peggy George

10:55 - Peggy George (eduCanon blog)

11:02 - kg

11:14 - Patti Ruffing
showing up right away for me

13:37 - Peggy George

14:02 - Peggy George
when the video pauses you need to answer the question to proceed :-)

14:22 - kg
Love inserting the background knowledge link right away in this video :)

14:50 - Peggy George
Tami and adr--we're watching this video in our browsers

14:51 - Peggy George

15:21 - Peggy George
give us a green check when you're finished watching the video :-)

15:43 - kg
Being able to see where Qs are in the video timeline is also super.

16:00 - Peggy George
I agree kg! very helpful!

16:08 - Oronoque 1
You are all so young...this gray haired grandma loves it

16:12 - Peggy George

16:23 - kg
Ditto on the grandma here.

16:31 - Peggy George
I have an advantage because I've viewed this before so I know the answers :-)

16:33 - Oronoque 1
Great to see a new generation taking the lead

16:55 - Oronoque 1
@Peggy, no cheating;)

16:56 - Peggy George
thanks for giving us your green check when you are finished viewing

17:15 - Peggy George
I need to see things several times before I learn them so that's why I love the use of videos!

17:24 - kg
"spot on" :)

17:38 - Patti Ruffing
cool video

18:37 - Jill L.
Love the controlled pacing!

18:53 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Loved the video.

18:59 - Peggy George (eduCanon Frequently Asked Questions)

19:02 - Stella Maris Berdaxagar
Very useful resource. I have seen it on Edmodo.

19:23 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Controlled pacing is a great practice for all students.

19:24 - Angie #2
controlled pacing rocks with special needs students

19:31 - @shamblesguru [thailand]
Are you finding that students as well as teachers are producing EduCanons?

19:31 - Peggy George
I tried to skip when I didn't know the answer and it wouldn't let me. But I learned the right answer when I clicked the wrong answer.

19:39 - kg
That is a great feature. I think that is not possible in NearPod (not video)?

19:48 - Ms. J
Neat feature that they can't fast forward!

19:54 - Angie #2

19:55 - Oronoque 1

19:55 - Patti Ruffing

19:58 - Peggy George

20:06 - Peggy George
all set

20:43 - Peggy George
we have tons of great videos to choose from!

20:45 - Rebecca Volle
Can you use your own video as well?

21:08 - kg
And I assume that your own video needs to be public?

21:09 - Peggy George
There are some great videos in our Livebinder today.

21:19 - Peggy George
great question kg

21:21 - Doug Henry
Any copyright concerns with annotating random YouTube videos...?

21:23 - Rebecca Volle

21:55 - Peggy George
that's really cool!!! 20,000 lessons in eduCanon database!

22:05 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Seems like if a video has a URL you will be able to use it in Educanon, correct?

22:10 - Peggy George
you could use this for PD for teachers too

22:12 - Ms. J
And this is FREE?

22:17 - Peggy George
yes free :-)

22:29 - Peggy George
some premium options but you don't really need them to use it

22:39 - kg
What does premium get you that free doesn't?

22:41 - Tami 3
what about cropping out something in the middle of the video

22:52 - Peggy George
that is so easy :-)

23:17 - kg
like hitting the "easy button" :) AH, voice annotation.

23:18 - Peggy George
being able to insert audio makes it a great language learning tool!

23:19 - Rebecca Volle
I love that you can insert images.... and audio...

23:32 - Patti Ruffing
audio is great for differentiating for lower level readers

23:56 - kg
@Patti: Yes :)

24:03 - Peggy George
love that personalized kind of response

24:11 - Doug Henry
Be neat if the student could give audio feedback as part of the answe

24:14 - kg
Can we use a video uploaded to GoogleDrive, if made public?

24:49 - Peggy George
can you go back and edit it after you've published it if you discover an error? :-)

25:07 - Peggy George
ignore the questions Swaroop. Lorie will ask them at the end of your presentation :-)

25:28 - Peggy George
that's great!

26:10 - Peggy George
this is a very exciting feature! you can actually embed these lessons/videos on Edmodo!!!

26:44 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Could see having students create Educanon lessons of videos, because the questions they add would show if they get the major concepts of the video.

26:45 - Peggy George
wow! that saves a lot of time if you can use something created by other teachers!

27:00 - Peggy George
that's a great point Paula!

27:09 - kg
Does student login require an email, and - if so- are there workarounds?

27:16 - @shamblesguru [thailand]

27:27 - Patti Ruffing
is there an age level in TOS for students to have a log in?

27:36 - Jill L.
Great idea @pinaugle!

27:51 - Doug Henry
Famous students!

27:51 - Christine
How do you go about sharing with your students?

27:52 - Peggy George
that definitely lets you know where you may need to reteach something!

28:13 - Peggy George
Lorie is gathering all of your questions and will ask Swaroop during Q/A :-)

28:38 - Patti Ruffing
what a great feature!

28:50 - Vicki Thurston 2
Can I upload my class rosters?

28:54 - Peggy George
we have included a lot of sample lessons in almost every subject area in the Livebinder today!

29:00 - kg
Super for formative asssessment...totally illustrates what formative is all about.

29:09 - Peggy George
thanks for adding your questions! keep 'em coming :-)

29:21 - Oronoque 1
QUESTION: Is the Grade Download only available in the premium version?

29:26 - Peggy George
wow!!! drag and drop is fantastic!

29:28 - Rebecca Volle
Can you see the grades in live time... or is there a lag.

29:30 - Doug Henry
Awesome user interface!

30:03 - Peggy George
single log in for eduCanon and Edmodo. Love it!

30:10 - Ms. J

30:11 - Patti Ruffing
hm, we afe GAFE but i haven't turned on Google Plus

30:20 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yippee. Logging in with Edmodo will get around needing an email.

30:34 - Peggy George

30:39 - kg

30:48 - Doug Henry
Can you export grades to Excel or other?

30:51 - Peggy George
what a great service! will create your student lists!

30:52 - Jill L.
Love the integration with Edmodo!

30:56 - Patti Ruffing
i love keeping usernames consisten for student accounts

31:44 - Peggy George
they have really made this user-friendly!!!

32:23 - Vicki Thurston 2
So with the link to the lesson, I can share one lesson with my content area teachers too!? Great!

32:41 - Lorie Moffat
yes, Vicki

32:54 - Christine
Can you pull videos from ?

33:09 - Peggy George (Carolyn Daniel’ Story: Flipping Middle School Science)

33:20 - Peggy George (Mr. Jackson’ Story: Blended Social Studies Class)

33:55 - Peggy George
all of these links are in the Livebinder :-)

33:58 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Have students make a video of them reading a poem they wrote. Upload to YouTube and then Educanon. Ask other students about similes, metaphors etc they used in their poetry.

34:36 - Peggy George
Follow the eduCanon blog to learn about new features, and get examples from other teachers

34:40 - kg
@Paula: Yes :)

34:56 - Peggy George
love that idea Paula!!!

35:05 - Peggy George
lots of questions coming Swaroop!

35:52 - Patti Ruffing
and what is the difference between free and premium?

35:56 - Swaroop Raju

36:09 - kg

36:10 - Peggy George
oh we could be early adopters for the discount group :-)

36:20 - Peggy George
this is the important question!

36:37 - Peggy George
you can do all of this without the premium version

36:41 - @plnaugle (Paula)
My students will be presenting their Passion Projects in a couple of weeks. I can envision videoing them and then letting them use Educanon to get feedback on their presentations.

36:50 - @shamblesguru [thailand]
Have added Educanon to my Flipped Classroom Video Tools area at

37:06 - Peggy George
thanks Shamblesguru! I'll add that link to the Livebinder!

37:53 - Peggy George
woo hoo!!! an app is coming!!! at least for student delivery!

38:01 - Oronoque 1
Is this available to post-secondary faculty also?

38:26 - Peggy George
those are great tips for having the students create their own screencasts and upload them to youtube to use with eduCanon

39:21 - Peggy George
public or unlisted! great to know!

39:39 - Peggy George
not private youtube videos

39:58 - Christine
Can you upload from

With district filtering an issue for many, how will students access videos?

40:18 - Peggy George
great question Sisqitman

40:51 - Patti Ruffing
what if you had your youtube url set inside something like, will that type of url work?

41:12 - Peggy George
yes Christine--any screencast will work if you upload to youtube or teachertube...

41:34 - Peggy George
that would remove the eduCanon options if you use

41:46 - Sharon Debruhl
How many students allowed for each subscription? Is there a limit?

42:00 - Patti Ruffing
student age restrictions for log ins?

42:02 - Jill L.
Can you use it with WatchKnowLearn videos?

42:11 - Oronoque 1
Is it 508 compliant?

42:18 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Love that you have stripped out all the extra YouTube stuff.

42:30 - Christine
How is this free??

42:41 - Peggy George
once your district realizes how safe it is to use they may be persuaded to unblock eduCanon so you can access the videos

42:44 - Rebecca Volle
Once it is an educannon video, the youtube blocking would be eliminated then for students who have youtube blocked?

42:54 - Swaroop Raju

43:34 - Peggy George
they have to unblock youtube

43:49 - kg
Can you insert content like GoogleDocs (not for video)?

44:18 - kg

44:35 - Peggy George
wow! that's fantastic!

44:45 - Peggy George
what is 508?

44:49 - Oronoque 1

I saw in one of the menus inserting links, so you could link to a Google Doc and have students do short answer questions

45:20 - Peggy George
thanks Oronoque! I understand accessibility but didn't recognize the numbers. :-)

45:36 - kg
@Sigitman: Yes, and it is exciting.

45:38 - Doug Henry
Can students use the Gmail "username+" email convention

45:40 - Rhonda
Nice job, ty

45:43 - Christine
How is this free?

45:46 - Peggy George
any further questions? :-)

45:58 - Peggy George
they don't need to log in with email

46:22 - Peggy George
that makes it really easy!

46:30 - Peggy George

46:46 - Swaroop Raju

46:50 - Doug Henry
Where did the name Educanon come from?

46:55 - Peggy George
remember to contact Swaroop if you're interested in the discount :-)

47:16 - Christine

49:02 - Vicki Thurston 2
I am looking forward to sharing with my teachers -- they have many video lesson and love the controlled pacing that comes with this tool.

49:03 - Peggy George
Lorie's first try:

49:12 - Patti Ruffing
i think i had asked this in email but now i forgot what swaroop had said - is there a way for a student to pose a question during viewing that would indicate they didn't understand something

49:13 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Virtual applause for Swaroop and Educanon. Excited to get onboard with this tool.

49:16 - Peggy George
very helpful Lorie!
