I teach an IB Diploma Economics class, which is always an interesting mixture of new and experienced Economics students. We offer a iGCSE course to our younger students which means that 80% of our students have studied economics before and have usually done very well.
I therefore look for ways to recap on previous concepts and try spend the class time unpacking concepts with activities or running mini-lessons with the new students on the basics. A great tool to help pre-assess student knowledge and understanding is Zaption.
Zaption is a tool which allows you to add questions to a video, where students view and answer at their own pace. Zaption then provides analytics to summarise the students responses.
Last week I wanted to set a quick homework activity to recap on the previous week of learning. The following video about Economic Systems from Crash Course Economics was a great resource to use. You can see the embedded Zaption activity below where I have added multi-choice and open answered questions to the activity. You can click through to see the different types of questions you can add.
