ShowMe: Enriching Global Education with Flipped Learning Technology

This post was originally published by Insights success.

Flipped learning is a blended learning process which makes learning more engaging and fruitful for learners and involves them in the learning process without much effort. This is the most acclaimed and admired process of education today where the classroom activities and homework assignments are reversed or flipped. The new generation has become smart and so has the learning and teaching process. With the flipped etiquettes of technology, the learning methodology has also been flipped to enrich the classroom experience.

ShowMe is a flipped learning technology that turns a touchscreen device into a personal interactive whiteboard allowing teachers to easily record voice-over lessons and share with their private classrooms or a community of teachers and students. Founded in 2009, ShowMe graduated from the DreamIt Ventures accelerator and received an initial funding from reputable VCs such as Lerer Hippeau, SV Angel, Betaworks, Learn Capital, Bold Start, and Eniac. ShowMe is building a global learning community – a place where anyone can learn or teach anything. The mission of this company is to connect great educators and experts with the students across the world. With rising number of tablet devices and iPads at schools across the world, ShowMe is steadily expanding its user base, already reaching more than 20 million teachers and students.

ShowMe’s positive impact on your classroom is immediate and easy to see: students engage and take ownership over their content, your content can be divided up amongst different groups to facilitate focused learning, and the flipped classroom model ties everything together into a neat package. However, ShowMe’s indisputably most valuable asset is you.



Upload ShowMe slides and videos directly into Google Drive

As a classroom aid, one of many purposes of ShowMe is to provide an intuitive tool that helps make your teaching as simple and stress-free as possible. While creating presentations from within the ShowMe app is very convenient, until now it wasn’t always easy to take your work with you. Today, we are thrilled to announce our Google Drive full integration.



Google Classroom integration is now available

Google Classroom is an incredibly important tool for educators everywhere. The ability to organize and manage your classes in an online setting facilitates inclusivity while fostering an understanding and appreciation of technology for your students; unfortunately, it also means that your online teaching tools are often confined to your selected tool. While Google Classroom offers plenty of resources, ShowMe’s integrated Google Classroom support will help elevate your curriculum even further.



How to use ShowMe on desktop

ShowMe is optimized from the ground up for mobile use, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t do plenty from your workstation. By accessing your ShowMe profile page from the ShowMe website, you can edit your profile, create courses and groups, view and edit your existing courses, and more. Any changes that you make will immediately carry over to the ShowMe app on your tablet.
