Video is a great tool to use to customize content for students- everyone know that! However, in order to actively engage students in learning video needs to be framed and focused. That is why we LOVE Zaption ( and no, we aren't associated with them in any fashion!) . Zaption is a website where you can EASILY make video interactive...you can add questions (MC and extended response), links, images, etc with in your chosen video. Just think...you can use the same video and scaffold questions and discussions for different students. You can pull video clips together simply. Most importantly, you can move students through a video collection based on their answers to embedded questions. And yes, you can load your class into Zaption and data is collected for each students. Its's a great formative tool! Give it a try! www.zaption.com
