Eric Marcos is a 6th grade mathematics teacher at Lincoln Middle School in Santa Monica, California. Eric empowers his students to be content creators by sharing videos on his site Mathtrain.TV.
Mathtrain.TV was created to host student-created math video lessons all in one place. It is Web 2.0 friendly with its ability for users to generate “ratings” and “comments”. His middle school students use tablet computers to create their videos that are designed with the motto, “kids teaching kids.” The videos are very popular and are downloaded thousands of times as a podcast in iTunes.
Eric’s education background includes Harvard Graduate School of Education, Ed.M., and Boston College, B.A. He’s taught in Santa Monica, San Diego, and Boston.
