THREE More Tech Tip Videos!

As more and more teachers are delivering content online, edtech tools can be a useful and helpful integration. NGPF Fellow Amanda Volz has created THREE more Tech Tip videos demonstrating the basic functions of each tool and ideas for using them with the NGPF curriculum.

  • Flipgrid: Flipgrid is a free tool that allows students to create short videos in response to a question or "topic". These videos can be viewed only by the teacher or used to generate classroom discussion!
  • EdPuzzle: EdPuzzle is a free tool that allows you to create interactive video lessons. Students can learn at their own pace and teachers can assess knowledge by asking questions within the video. And the best news...NGPF has an EdPuzzle library ready for you to use!
  • Screencast-O-Matic: Screencast-O-Matic is a free and easy-to-use tool (with paid upgrades) that allows you to record your computer screen while also including narration and audio. 
  • (Previously posted on the blog) Quizizz: Quizizz is a quiz game tool in which students engage at their own pace. This can be used to review content, make class more fun, or used as a formative assessment of knowledge. 

Do you have an idea for a Tech Tool tutorial video? Whether it is a tool you want to learn more about or a tool you have used and love that should be shared with other teachers, fill out this form! Your input will be used for future Tech Tip videos!
