The challenge encouraged educators to embed a Google Form into a video to collect data and feedback from students. Participants were then encouraged to kick it up a notch by embedding their own favorite tools and apps in a video to provide more functionality to power the learning. The results are amazing and the possibilities are exciting.
This interactive video, submitted by by Sheri Edwards, includes a live Padlet right inside the video. This adds a level of simple and instant collaboration to a lesson. Since Padlet does not require students to log in, the tech is seamlessly integrated to support the learning and it is in the background. What a powerful way to engage students! Explore this interactive video and contribute to the Padlet yourself.
