Here are some activity types that may be helpful!

And what about thinking skills? How does all this relate to helping students develop their thinking skills?

Here is a very good page that may help us reflect on that.

Edpuzzle

Edpuzzle is a great video resource to use when flipping a lesson or for personalizing learning. This easy-to-use site allows you to upload a video, crop it if necessary, and insert questions. When students watch the video, it will pause and not allow them to continue until they have answered a question. The questions can be open-ended or multiple choice. Edpuzzle enables teachers to personalize student learning; in the past, everyone watched the same video at the same time and I would pause the video periodically to ask questions or give a handout with questions to the students.

With Edpuzzle, students can rewatch a section of the video if they are unable to answer the question; therefore, it enables my students to watch the video at their own pace.”
 EDpuzzle can not only help you create videos but it can also help you:

  • Grade The Students When you create your video lecture and add assessments, you can also include quiz at the end of the lecture. In this way, you can grade the students and see their progress if they completely understand the lecture or not. 
  • Check The Progress You can not only check the progress of their understanding but you can also see which student is watching videos and which student is not. This can help you assess students and create a relevant plan for them the next day.
Here you have an example of a Edpuzzle Video
