You Oughta Know: About ED Puzzle



You oughta know about ED Puzzle. It is a website that allows teachers to crop, edit, and record over videos to create an interactive experience for your students. 

Teachers can create an account for free. After you've created your account, your ED Puzzle dashboard will walk you through the steps for creating your first video. 



Next, use the search feature to find a video of your choice. I am teaching ecosystems to my 5th graders next quarter, so I searched for Ecosystems. There were several already created. I chose one.



You do also have the option of uploading a video or entering a URL of a YouTube or other type of video like Learn Zillion. 
Next, use the editing tools to crop, record your voice, and pause the video at selected points. 


Finally, assign the lesson to your class. It is recommended that you present the information to your students independently (computer center time would be ideal). You could use it as a smart board tool, where students choose answers together and you complete the activity with the whole group.

Overall, ED Puzzle gives us another tool to make multimedia presentations easier and more effective in our classrooms. I don't know about you, but I sometimes forget when I wanted to stop a video or what question I planned to ask. This website takes all of that guess work out of it. The best part is that your students can access this independently.

  1. This is fab- thank you! I quite often don't need a whole video and it's great that I can chop it and turn it into my own presentation- thanks for sharing Xx

  2. This is my first time hearing about Ed Puzzle. It seems like a great tool to enhance a lesson. I can also see it being used for a student that might be absent and missed a lesson. A teacher could create a quick video that the absent student could watch and get caught up with the rest of the class. Thanks for sharing and thanks for joining the blog hop :-)
