On Thursday afternoon (28 November 2013) at 3.30pm we held our final SchoolNet webinar for 2013 entitled ‘Edflipping videos into your lessons’ presented by Linda Foulkes of Elkanah High School in Cape Town.
Linda summarised her presentation like this:
“I will demonstrate two very useful and exciting tools in order to create a lesson using a video. Teachers will love these tools. Both resources allow one to track student progress. The first tool is EdTed which allows one to flip the classroom in three very easy steps. One can choose an existing lesson or choose any YouTube video to customize. Huge potential exists for these tools in the BYOD classroom as well as for homework or tutorials around a particular section of work. One can assess the students throughout the video by setting multiple choice and open ended questions, discussion topics, and add a links to further resources and information. The second tool is called EdPuzzle – this tool allows one to flip using four different video options [not only YouTube]. Crop videos, create audio tracks and auto notes along the timeline of the video, create quizzes in the video progress bar to assess student progress.”
Linda’s presentations are given below via SlideShare. Since she demonstrated two separate tools there are two Slideshare presentations.
