Watch Know

The Internet is full of useful information, but it's disorganized and often unreliable. Despite its problems, the potential of the Internet for education is especially huge. Imagine tapping into that potential.

Imagine collecting all the best free educational videos made for children, and making them findable and watchable on one website. Then imagine creating many, many more such videos.

Just think: millions of great short videos, and other watchable media, explaining every topic taught in schools, in every major language on Earth.

WatchKnow—as in, "You watch, you know"—has started building this resource.

The one key advantage is that all the videos are categorized according to topic and age appropriate for viewing.
