This afternoon in the AT&T Classroom Woodland Elementary teacher Mrs. Danielle Marshall led a reading comprehension activity with her second graders that she created using Zaption.
Zaption is a web-based tool that can be used to create interactive opportunities within digital video lessons. Teachers may upload their own video, select from the Zaption library or search for online video content from sites such as YouTube, PBS, National Geographic, etc. Videos can be used in their entirety, trimmed or combined with other videos, slides, or drawings. Teachers can then create and insert questions directly in the video. Questions can encompass several different formats including open responses, multiple choice, and check box. Mrs. Marshall used a YouTube video of the story Frog & Toad Alone and inserted several reading comprehension questions within the video to check students’ comprehension as they progressed through the story. Mrs. Marshall shared the assignment with the students by posting the lesson link in the class Edmodo group. Zaption analytics allow the teacher to access and view each students’ responses once they have completed the assignment.
