Strand: 01. Nature of Science

Strand unit: 05. Review & Reflect on Investigations.

Suggestions for use: Use resource in your planning for a flipped learning classroom. In the science classroom, teachers can set videos for students to watch for homework prior to an experiment. Using EDpuzzle the teacher embeds questions throughout the video to check students understanding of the protocol and safety. This will allow the teacher to use classroom time more effectively with less time needed on demonstrations. Students will be more confident coming into the classroom as they will know what is expected from them from their homework exercise. Edpuzzle will allow you and students to then ask deeper more critical questions in the classroom.
