On Sunday Nov 2 we had the great pleasure of meeting with Quim Sabrià, one of four developers of EdPuzzle, a unique online software tool for cropping video and developing lessons around that video segment, embedding it online, assigning it to a class, and tracking student analytics via the http://edpuzzle.com. Quim convinced us that this was a tool designed for teachers like him (and us) and he assured us it would be free forever.  Check the recording to find out more.

Where? Google Hangout on Air

What was this about?

I was so impressed with this review of EdPuzzle http://sco.lt/4uf7GT that I registered as a user. This prompted an automated response from Quim, to which I responded, and to which he replied, so we negotiated an online meeting via HoA. Meanwhile I’ve found a power-EdPuzzle user in my workplace, Daniella, who joined us in the discussion of this intriguing video embed tool. Benjamin was also there with questions about advanced aspects of the tool. Quim sent us a short and useful introduction here: goo.gl/IHD0Ef

What happened during  the chat?

Quim offered links relating to EdPuzzle

And we were attacked by a griefer (first time ever 🙂

Our first ever griefer was apparently a netizen from Russia who dropped in on us with a hulk avatar and disrupted proceedings by rapping into the mic.  I muted him (from his profile, appears to be a young boy) he unmuted, I ejected him, and that worked for 30 seconds till he managed to get back in. We had 9 in the HoA so while I was ejecting him the second time with one hand, I managed to get myself in on another computer with the other and fill the HoA, and we had no further visitations. All in all, it was amusing chaos, all part of the HoA experience.

Meanwhile I have found an easier way to deal with ths. I’ve consulted

Digital learning tools are becoming ever more common in K-6 classrooms. With this shift, teachers are looking for high-quality content for students that allows them to differentiate instruction and assess student comprehension.

In this TIME For Kids webinar we’ll offer tips on how to incorporate multimedia across the curriculum, with suggestions from TFK teachers.

Special emphasis will be placed on introducing the new TIME For Kids tablet app, which offers lessons and assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards as well as multimedia enhancements that allow teachers to meet the needs of individual learners.
