What’s It Like? Zaption is an online tool that allows teachers to create video “tours” for their students. These tours can be created using Zaption’s extensive gallery of videos from around the Web (from YouTube, Vimeo, National Geographic, and PBS, among others site) or by uploading your own. With the tool, teachers can use entire videos or trim selections from a video; they’ll then be able to embed text or questions in the video with a simple drag-and-drop process.

Rating: 4/5

Price: Free/paid

Grades: 2-12

Pros: The clean, simple design and the customizable assessment features help teachers see what students are learning.

Cons: Although passive viewing can be activated with questions, further discussion may be needed to foster deep thinking.

Bottom line: Used creatively, Zaption provides solid opportunities for formative assessment, but the tool could do more with teacher-feedback features.
