The ShowMe Teaching Technology Behind The New Princeton Review SAT iPad App (TCTV)

The Princeton Review launched a slick new iPad app today called SAT Score Quest . Each question comes with a whiteboard video tutorial with a voiceover from an instructor explaining the solution. The ShowMe whiteboard technology is licensed from Easel Learning , a bootstrapped NYC startup, which is also developing its own app and a corresponding ShowMe website where tutors and teachers of all stripes can show off their teaching skills, share lessons with students, and get rated by the community. Easel CEO San Kim recently showed me both the Princeton Review app and the ShowMe app which is still in development (watch the video above). The demo was at General Assembly, the co-working space in Manhattan where Easel set up shop a couple months ago. He hopes that ShowMe can become a "Flickr for teachers," which isn't exactly the way I'd describe it—more like a YouTube for lessons.
