How I Use It
I use this oftentimes to help introduce a topic. The students watch the video and we discuss what we just saw. Often times, I ask them to go to the follow up quiz and see how they did. Most of the time, they score well for understanding. We use that as a jumping off point to work on a whole class or individual activity.
My Take
I love that it has a great sense of humor and that the kids are definitely interested. I think it is a great way to lessen the amount that I talk, while still conveying a lot of great information. The quiz provides good information about what they already understand about the topic. Super easy to access and use.
