Have you ever tried in vain to explain a concept to one of your children? Ha-ha, or even to a spouse. Sometimes words just aren’t enough. “An explainer video is great way to make any topic more interesting and easier to understand.” Cue mysimpleshow.
We have created an online video-maker tool great for education at home! It’s called mysimpleshow.com and transforms any text into an explainer video with graphics and voiceover in minutes, it is also really easy to use, which is perfect for mums!
So why is visual content so important in the learning process? “The brain processes visual information 60,000 times faster than it does with text”, which in turn, makes it easier for most to remember (which makes it a great tool for children with ADHD and dyslexia).
Parents and care givers can use mysimpleshow to help kids with their homework, and…
…with so many families choosing to home school, mysimpleshow, is a great option for homeschoolers! And, of course, teachers are able to use the videos in their classrooms. Students can also benefit from doing research, writing text and then creating videos themselves, to share with their classmates.
The program is simple to use, and if parents and/or teachers need help, all they have to do is ask the kids for help. Youth are not afraid of technology and will jump right in and master concepts in no time at all. But honestly, it really is a snap. mysimpleshow takes you through the process step by step. It only takes minutes to create an “explainer” video, but the benefits are long lasting. “Children can develop a greater sense of cognitive association in regards to matching text and contest with the images that they see on the screen.” See a sample below, and more are available on the website.
There are both free and subscription options (with additional features) to fit one’s individual needs. Visual media contest is no longer a part of the future in teaching and learning…technology is key!
“Explainer” videos aren’t just for the classroom, they can be used for business, and for fun. Bloggers will love the program and I personally, can’t wait to see what great things I can come up with!
