I love this playlist of videos for creating with explain everything and syncing up to google drive. The added bonus is that they were created by a Coloradan!

Anyone doing this in their school? How about having kids use explain everything to teach one another?

Jessica Raleigh What do you think?

  1. This is great and is exactly what I am planning on doing with my 4th graders being experts and creating videos for each other, but the addition of Google Drive will make it all the more powerful.

    In part 4 Jon mentions using class/instructor time to reach level 3 & 4 higher-order thinking because level 1 & 2 were accomplished with the videos, but putting the video creation in kids’ hands allows them to reach those higher levels on their own.  Even if students don’t have technology at home we can still modify the flipped class so some students are watching teacher-created videos, some are creating their own videos as a way to explore what they know & demonstrate their learning, and the teacher is able to keep small group sizes and focus areas.

    The ability to link this all together with Google means teachers aren’t having to re-create entire lessons and can save time by using slides and documents they’ve created previously in PPT, SMART/Promethean, or MS Office to throw together a video quickly and walk kids through a new concept or provide additional supports. Loving every bit of this.
