Try this IDEA!
EdPuzzle is a Web 2.0 tool for teachers to make videos more interactive. You can crop your video, insert your own audio and comments and even stop the video to insert questions for your students! Bonus, this tool can connect to your Google Classroom making assigning the videos to your students a quick step! Check it out at Edpuzzle.com. Also add it to Google Chrome from the Chrome Webstore!
IDEA Bar Sessions are in two formats:
- Open (you decide what you need help with)
- Specific (we choose the topic)
Sessions are held on Thursdays (with a few exceptions) from 3:00-4:30. We'll be there the whole time, but you can stay as long (or as short) as you need to!
All we ask is that you let us know you are coming!
