Children are AMAZING - they will blow you away!


I used Edpuzzle to take out a long intro on this video clip that was unneccessary and found EdPuzzle to be pretty easy to use. You could also add audio to it if you wanted to add maybe some notes or instructions for students to hear as they are watching the video. Often there is a part of a video that you would like to show and Edpuzzle was an easy editing tool to do that.
