   We are in hi-tech world, teaching kids with books sometimes (most of the time ) become boring. Teaching them practically is the best way but  every time its not possible. So what about showing them educational videos? i think its a great idea but which site? you tube? which contains so many videos its difficult for you(adults) and kids to judge whether video contain informational content or its just for time pass.

        So, here is the solution WatchKnow it contains educational videos or you can say place for kids to learn something. This site is in beta version and not launched officially but still it is above other educational videos site. Now you want to know HOW ? That’s what they have to say:-

    Four things: WatchKnow (1) organizes videos (2) for students. We are (3) managed by education professionals but (4) are an open, collaborative community. We’re set up to build the place kids will want to come to for extra help online.
1.    We are focused on collecting rather than hosting materials. We do not want to build "yet another" educational resource collection, but instead an exhaustive directory of all the best educational, watchable media for children that we can find online.

2.    Our content is aimed at students. Many educational video projects online, like SchoolTube or Edutopia, cover a lot of other material as well, like teacher education and lesson plans, and videos made by students. We’re more focused.

3.    And we are serious about this. Unlike YouTube and TeacherTube again, we are non-profit. We make an active management role for the relevant experts: teachers and others. They are not merely reviewers, they can actually take the lead in building the website.

4.    The goal of organizing educational videos for kids is very ambitious. We think the most effective way to do this is to set up an open community. So that’s what we are. We aren’t just a database put together "in-house" or by a computer program. We’re people working together

Now i think you want to give it a try? Isn’t ?
