Free Holiday Unit from eduCanon

I first found eduCanon over a year ago when I was looking into resources for flipping classrooms (moving lectures to home and then work to school). Their claim to fame is the ability to add questions to YouTube (and other) videos and have the students answer while watching. If the students are watching it at home, or even in the classroom, asking questions can help boost engagement and test for understanding at the same time.

EduCanon just sent me out an email with a free Holiday Unit that has five free lessons in it. Given how brain dead we all seem to feel this time of year, especially with the icky weather, I thought that everyone would enjoy checking them out!

"Holiday Break is just around the corner. As a thank you for your support as a premium user, the eduCanon team has been hard at work to provide you with some fun class activities to get you there!

We've created a free Holiday Unit for you to download. The unit covers strategies for revision during the holidays, holiday traditions around the world, and other topics perfect for your classroom. Login to your account and get started!!"
  • How to Revise Effectively Over the Holidays
  • TED Talk - Don't eat the marshmallow!
  • Holidays Around the World
  • The Life of Charles Dickens
  • La Navidad - Spanish
Here is an example of "The Life of Charles Dickens", which I enjoyed a lot. Check it out and let me know what you think!
