The Flipped classroom is a clever way of maximising learning with students. The idea of the students preparing themselves before the lesson, coming armed with the necessary prior knowledge, can only make classroom teaching more effective. EDpuzzle is a place where video material can be selected from reputable educational websites and loaded into a lesson plan for the students to use online (if Youtube is blocked at your school, go to the FAQ for hints). Each student is given a class code, thus dispensing with the need to sign up. The teacher can clip the video, record comments at any point and insert discussion questions or multiple choice questions to actively involve them in their learning. Follow the online tour of the capabilities of the site.

This is an excellent way to encourage the students to own their learning. Fabulous!
