Do you like using Youtube videos as part of your curriculum, but want a way to make sure that your students are getting the most out of them? Want to allow students to view educational videos at their own pace while also checking for comprehension? Do you have a flipped classroom and want to keep students accountable for their homework? Then EDpuzzle is the right tool for you!
EDpuzzle allows user to make any video a lesson by embedding teacher-created questions and comments, while also monitoring to make sure that students are actually watching the videos. As the administrator, you can see how many times a section of a video was watched and how many times a student attempted to answer a question. And students have to watch the video; if a new tab is opened, the video automatically stops and waits for the student to return to the EDpuzzle tab to resume viewing.
Below is the training deck that I created and used as part of a presentation at my local Regional Office of Education's Tri-County Institute, a day of professional development for educators throughout the three counties, which includes a lot of content developed for teachers by teachers. My presentation was interactive, so participants were able to watch pre-made EDpuzzles and make their own resources.
