EdTech Platform Kiddztube Academy Gets A+ From Preschool Teachers

Platform enables teachers to augment YouTube with educational quizzes

Preschool teachers have a new tool to spark learning in their classrooms or to take on-the-go. Edtech startup magikbee has launched kiddZtube Academy, a platform for early years educators that enables them to create educational video-quizzes from YouTube content by augmenting pop-up questions to each video. The technology allows teachers to transform kids’ favourite video content into an educational tool to teach spelling, counting, colors and other core skills. As children watch cartoons and listen to songs they are asked questions aloud about what they are watching.

The free platform is aimed specifically at professionals in the early years education sector. kiddZtube Academy is a natural extension of the existing kiddZtube offer - an app available across iOS and Android with 1,000 video-quizzes selected from YouTube and curated by magikbee’s group of teachers. Now the technology is open to educators worldwide for use at school and at home.

Teachers can select any video publicly available on YouTube to create a video-quiz. Questions are inserted by stopping on an image during the video that will accompany the pop-up question. kiddZtube Academy, which is accessed via a website, is intuitive and has a simple design –

meaning teachers can create video-quizzes in no time at all. Teachers simply select questions from a drop down menu with several question categories.

Teachers can compile the video-quizzes, which are accessed via the kiddZtube app, that they create into “lessons” - or playlists - for use in the classroom via a projector or on individual tablets. They can be shared with children at home via an access code given to parents, who simply type the code into the app on their device to gain immediate access to the lessons containing video-quizzes created by their child’s teacher.

“Teachers create playlists and share them by giving a code to parents of their class,” explains Hugo Filipe Ribeiro, Co-Founder and CEO of magikbee. “Parents -- or the child with adult supervision -- enter the code in their kiddZtube app at home.”
