Today's Blog: Understanding the significance of setting in texts
Ed Puzzle is an online tool that can be used to insert audio, notes and quizzes into any video on Youtube. For the English classroom, it's a fantastic tool to create comprehension tasks for spoken texts by inserting short answer or multiple choice questions into a video. Students cannot continue watching the video until they have answered the questions. We've created a simple example task on the powerful speech that Malala Yousafzei gave opening the Birmingham Library a few years ago. You can see the task we created here: https://edpuzzle.com/assignments/56baa86d0a22cb7841d8f5c5/watch. To login into the video you will need this code: erewoej.
Ed Puzzle is a free tool but you do need a user account. You can create an account or login with a Google or Facebook account. It's a simple tool to use. Rather than us rehashing here how to use it, look at Ed Puzzle short introductory tutorial: https://edpuzzle.com/.
