VideoNot.es & Playposit

UPDATE: As of September 2019, VideoNot.es does not seem to be a functioning website, anymore. We will post some alternatives on a future episode when we find them and be sure to update this note.

This week we talk about VideoNot.es and Playposit. Both of these sites are awesome tools to use in a flipped classroom or anytime you want students to gather some understanding from videos! Both of these websites can be used in any subject area from Biology to Art History. You can incorporate any content you would like students to learn more about.

VideoNot.es allows you or your students to keep notes about videos in real time while watching the videos. It has so many uses! It also stores all of the notes into Google Drive!

PlayPosit

Playposit is a great teacher tool to help your students focus on the video you are watching and a great way to monitor what your students are understanding. It allows you to pause videos and ask questions, and see the results from your students’ answers.
