Zaption allows teachers to embed questions into videos so that students can have a more interactive experience and teachers can have instant formative feedback to evaluate the student learning that takes place during the video.
For the highest quality use of this program, teachers need to make sure that they are inserting the interactive features at the most important parts of the video that teachers don’t want students to miss, so that they get the highest benefit from it.
Role of Technology
This program is very useful for flipped classrooms, as well as traditional classrooms that wish to present video content, but in a more engaging and interactive way that provides formative assessment data. It allows viewing videos to become a less passive learning experience for students, and offers them more opportunities for reflection.
