The Goal: Improvement in Education

The goal of KidsTeachingKids is to encourage student-produced video explanations of every problem in every textbook and make them freely and easily accessible to any student, anywhere in the world, with a web connection or cell phone.The basic concept is simple:  empower kids to teach other kids. It’s the universal video wikipedia that has the potential to change the way kids are educated, and education yearns to be free.

Videos will all be open source, so they can be freely translated into any and all languages for use around the world. Videos may be shot with cell phone video cameras and will be available to play on cell phones and iPads, as well as websites.

The Kids Teaching Kids site will initially target K-12 kids, present an engaging and intuitive user experience, and showcase video content created exclusively by kids for kids. The result creates a forum of students sharing tips.  It makes many subjects palatable, and learning more enjoyable.  It makes a tutor available to every child, everywhere in the world, at any time, for any subject, for free.  Kids prefer learning from other kids.

KidsTeachingKids will leverage the explosion in web-based video to improve the learning process and to help kids meet specific learning objectives including improve test scores, increase subject matter expertise, solve homework problems, gain a better understanding of fundamental school subjects, and share their expertise with those coming up behind them.  Its educational pay-it-forward.

KidsTeachingKids will permit any student with an Internet connection to obtain effective, focused tutoring, so they may learn and understand specific elements of their studies.  It will also enable discussions of age-related social issues and give kids valuable tools to handle them effectively.

By using cross-cultural metaphors and strategies, we create a global information network to leverage all educational systems and facilitate cross-pollination of learning strategies.  By indexing videos and mapping them to published educational standards, teachers can harness the creativity of the global village that kids are exposed to daily, and use the videos in classes free of charge.

The goal of giving every child access to a virtual tutor is within our grasp.  You can make it happen.
