Tech Tuesday



I'm linking up with the lovely Once Upon a Classroom for Tech Tuesday.  The technology tool I am going to share is EDpuzzle. EDpuzzle is a free website (signup required) that lets you take just about any video off the web, edit it down to the portions you want, add audio notes and questions for students, and create virtual classrooms where you can monitor student work.  This is a great tool to use for quick assessments of how your students are doing.  I am currently getting my Technology Endorsement and for the first class we used this website for one of our assignments.  The assessment I made to try with my Kindergarten class is attached below, When you Add with a Pirate.  It is an addition video that stops six times to ask them addition questions to solve.  The website records the students answers and then teachers can go back and look at the results.   I was pleasantly surprised that once I showed my class how to navigate through the video one time, they were able to independently complete the rest of the assessment.  I am excited to use this website in the future!

When you Add with a Pirate.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I'm so glad you linked up and shared this idea! I have never heard of EdPuzzle, but it sounds like it might be a solution to a problem we were having in my classroom. We were trying to send a video to another class, and we didn't want to redo the whole thing but had parts to edit out. I will be looking into this soon! Thanks for sharing it! That's awesome you are getting your Tech Endorsement!!

    1. Your welcome Erin. I like the simplicity of it and how every student is responsible to show what they know. Sometimes I worry about the kiddos that just blend into the crowd and echo the answer that everyone else gives, especially in math. It gave me an idea of who knew the concepts and who I needed to pull back for some guided math instruction.
