EdPuzzle Thursday: Retirement & The FIRE Movement
EdPuzzle is a great platform to test for knowledge while students watch a video and learn remotely. We will be releasing new EdPuzzle videos here on the blog each week so that your students can answer questions that are directly embedded within engaging videos.
This week we have two EdPuzzle videos both focusing on retirement.
The first EdPuzzle video titled "Is Retirement Even Possible?" discusses how much money is needed in retirement, factors that contribute to a low retirement savings rate, and "special ingredients" to maximize your retirement savings.
In the second EdPuzzle video titled "Can You Really Retire In Your 30s?" students will learn the characteristics of the popular FIRE movement.

Note: You do NOT need to create an account to ACCESS EdPuzzle videos. But if you do create free teacher and student accounts, you will then be able to capture and save student responses. For more tips and tricks on how to best implement these videos in your classroom, check out NGPF Fellow James Redelsheimer’s blog post or Amanda Volz's Tech Tip video.
