Many video creation and implantation sites make it easy to use video in your classroom, regardless of content area or student level. My favorite way to assess student learning with video is EdPuzzle. EdPuzzle is a FREE interactive tool that combines video with questions and/or prompts that boosts student engagement and learning. It’s a great formative or summative assessment tool that greatly differentiates your classroom.
EdPuzzle is different than other video tools because you can pull content from a variety of sources or upload your own videos. You can use lessons already published in the library, or you can create your own. The process is incredibly user friendly for both teachers and students. EdPuzzle makes it easy to flip lessons, provide instant feedback, and monitor individual student progress. For the L2 classroom, it’s a great way to incorporate authentic videos without student confidence or linguistic breakdown because you are able to pause, rewind and learn at your own pace. Students can also create their own EdPuzzle’s as a way to show what they know. The videos are easily sharable and can be published/embedded to almost any web-based platform.
This presentation will show you the step by step instructions for how to use EdPuzzle and recap some of the benefits I shared above. No matter where your technology comfort zone is, EdPuzzle makes it fun and easy to share and create video content with your students.
