So I stumbled across a great new tool for using videos in the classroom in a more interactive way. It's called EDPuzzle. It's pretty simple you can create your own video and upload it to the site, or you can choose from videos from YouTube, LearnZillion, Kahn Academy, National Geographic, etc. Once you have chosen your video, you can use the entire video or crop it just to the section that you want. Using the toolbar along the top, you can add a question at any point in the video by clicking on question mark icon. When the video is playing, it will pause when it reaching one of your question stops. You can then save your created "interactive video" and share it as an assignment to your classes. There are a few ready made video lessons that you can use as well. It's a pretty cool tool for making those videos more engaging for your students or using it in a flipped classroom! It's definitely worth checking out!
