This week I had the chance to connect with the awesome team behind EDpuzzle. If you haven’t heard of them before, EDpuzzle is a resource for teachers and schools with over 50,000 curated educational videos for students and over 3 million video lesson on their platform. With content to use with kindergarteners to high school students, there is plenty to choose from across subject areas and grade levels. EDpuzzle was designed to help teachers save curriculum curation time and provide all of the videos they need for the year in one place. Teachers can later adjust the videos they’ve picked out by changing the questions or adding their own lessons.
EDpuzzle K-12 Educational Videos for Students
The folks at EDpuzzle have organized content to make it easier for teachers to find what they are looking for to support their students. As you dive into the content curated by the EDpuzzle team, you’ll find most videos have formative assessment opportunities. This means you can check for understanding. At the same time you can intervene if students have questions or need extra help as they explore a new concept.
One of the reasons I’m excited about this tool is the way you can gather a handful of resources or make your own. Videos can be used to help communicate concepts to all learners. You can reinforce ideas that may have come up in class discussions. The use of video in the classroom is so important. It’s more than grabbing the attention of students at the beginning of a lesson. With visual representations students can make connections to what they already know about a topic. It can get their wheels spinning about what they’d like to learn more about.
