Over the summer, Mr. Avery was lucky enough to have had the opportunity to work for a great new company called LearnZillion. LearnZillion is a new website that focuses on having teachers create videos that correlate to the Common Core.
Back in June, 123 teachers from around the United States were flown down to Atlanta for LearnZillion’s TeachFest. Sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, this gave teachers an opportunity to collaborate and create videos that will help teach and reinforce ideas that students are expected to know through the Common Core State Standards.
Now that Teachfest and the summer have passed, all of the videos created by teachers have been uploaded and are ready to share with the world. There are over 2,000 videos that are free to teachers, parents, and students! You can search by grade level, concept, or standard to find just what you need for your students.
You can check out a few examples of the videos that Mr. Avery made for LearnZillion down below. You can also check out all the rest of the videos that he has made by click here.
If making videos for LearnZillion is something you might be interested in, they are currently accepting applications until January 27th to be a part of their 2013 Dream Team. If accepted, you’ll have the opportunity to travel to San Francisco for their TeachFest on May 2nd-May 5th. You can find out more information here.
