Image of the Week: Tagging Video with Tasks Engaging in Content

Engaging our students through video tagged with ThingLink, can be a way to introduce a topic and have them interact with content. Our image of the week comes to us from the amazing, Certified Educator: Christi Collins.

Interactive video can be a great way to pause what the students are watching so they can check-in with an interactive questionnaire or view a resource via weblink. Christi’s ThingLink Video provides a great example of an ‘appsmash’ where she takes a created Powtoons and tags it in ThingLink with:

  • Activity pause points (paper plate infographic)
  • Informal review (formal letter; author’s purpose)
  • Formative assessment (Google form)

Learning Standards to Support Tagging Video with Tasks Engaging in Content

  • ISTE Standards for Educators 5b (Designer)
    • Design authentic learning activities that align with content area standards and use digital tools and resources to maximize active, deep learning.
