Benefits of Using Educational Videos for Children

There are many benefits to using educational videos for children.

1. As Highbrow tells us on their site, “It is a well-known fact that children spend hours in front of the screen everyday. Unfortunately the reality is that most of that screen time doesn’t teach them anything. This really bothered us. So instead of taking technology away from children we decided to embrace it.”

2. While there is no Highbrow app yet, this program can be used on your PC as well as any device that offers Internet. We use it on our iPad and love the portability of it that way. My daughter can sit at her desk and prop it up to watch and do some drawing, or she can snuggle up in a cozy chair and watch videos that way.

3. Hands on learning through things like science experiments and drawing are just a video away for your visual, hands-on learners.

4. Using Highbrow for your younger children affords you the peace of mind that they are getting quality screen time which frees you up to work with other children, do the dishes, or maybe even sit for a few minutes!

5. Highbrow offers multiple kids profiles which means each of your children can have their own custom viewing lists, tailored to their interests and needs.

Highbrow Educational Videos for Children - Goose

One of my daughter’s favorite things to do is watch the Learn to Draw videos and create new, fun pictures. So far they offer over 100 videos to guide your child through fun and educational cartoon drawing techniques.

It offers her the opportunity to learn about line drawing, coloring, shading, and more. She can easily pause the videos and go back if she needs more time.

This has added a fun art component for her that is completely hands off for me! It is a win-win situation in our home! An educational experience for (one that she sees as fun), and a little time for me to focus on another child or do something for me.
