When I first started to embed questions in videos, I used EdPuzzle. Then my whole school switched to Zaption, so I put all of my videos in Zaption. Now, we are back to EdPuzzle. There are some great features to EdPuzzle that I really like. It is very easy to grade when you click on quick grade. Also it does not allow students to change their answer after they have hit submit. Last year, when my students were doing Zaption practices, they would change their answer to the correct answer. I assumed that all of my students were really understanding all of the concepts! I have even used it as a part of the assessments this year. This allows students to rewatch the parts that they need to rewatch to understand.
Many times with YouTube, a video is removed, or all of the sudden I cannot access it because I do not live in that country. Also since I have incorporated it into my quiz, I like to have practice EdPuzzles for students to complete. Here are some of my most recent EdPuzzle activities:
- Do you teach from Así Se Dice with the airport unit? Here is a great video about checking in and boarding your airplane! Also I found a super cute Peppa Pig video about going on an airplane trip.
- There are a lot of the videos: 50 things about me. (I shortened this one though.)
- For the Netflix unit, I found a video of a girl sharing her favorite items of the month.
- Also, I previously shared this, but here is another video of a girl getting ready to go to bed.
When I am looking for a video, I like to mix things up. I like to use cartoons, commercials, parts of a TV show or vloggers. This helps to keep my students engaged. Many times, I will ask them for one thing that they learned from a section to help them share what they have learned. Have you discovered any new videos that you are loving recently?
