6 Tips On How to Use Edform For The Best Results
How can Edform influence the learning process? In this post, we'll share six tips for using Edform to its fullest potential, including incorporating audio and video feedback, enhancing learning with interactive elements, editing worksheets from the public library, and more. Read on to learn how to use your Edform features for better results!
Tip #1: Use Audio and Video Feedback
Say goodbye to boring, lengthy written comments and hello to personalized and engaging feedback. Edform's superb audio and video feedback feature can help you do just that!
The best part about this feature is that it saves you time while providing more effective feedback that helps students understand the material better. We suggest planning what you want to say before recording your feedback.
You can use video feedback to explain complex concepts in more detail or offer visual examples that students can follow easily. Don't worry; you don't have to be a Hollywood director to make great videos. Just speak clearly and avoid shaky camera work. Your students will appreciate your effort. So go ahead, hit that record button, and let your inner Spielberg shine!
Tip #2: Incorporate Interactive Elements to Gamify Learning
Do you remember how much more fun learning was when you were playing educational games in school? Incorporating interactive elements on Edform can bring that same level of fun and engagement to your classroom.
Edform offers a variety of interactive elements that can be used to gamify learning. These include drag-and-drop exercises, matching games, fill-in-the-blank questions, hotspots, checkboxes, audio, video, math response, and more. Including these elements in your lessons can make learning more fun for your students.
For example, you could create a matching game that includes images related to the lesson topic or a drag-and-drop exercise that challenges students to apply what they've learned in a creative way. Adding an element of competition or challenge can motivate your students to learn while also having fun.
Interactive elements can fit any lesson plan (you can even use any of our ready-made templates) and can be used for various activities. With Edform's interactive features, the possibilities are endless for creating fun and educational activities that will keep your students engaged and excited to learn.
Tip #3: Edit and Improve Worksheets from Public Library
Edform's public library is a treasure trove of ready-to-use worksheets, lessons, and handouts created by other teachers. However, to make them work best for your students, it's essential to personalize them and give them your unique view.
So how can you edit and improve these worksheets effectively? First, take some time to review the worksheet and make any necessary adjustments to the content or formatting. You can incorporate more interactive elements or delete some if they are abundant.
Another great way to improve a worksheet is by adding personal style.
We’ve discussed teachers’ voices in the previous article; you can find it in the Edform Blog.
You can modify the language or examples to make the worksheet more relevant to your students' experiences. You can also add your images and videos. To hide unnecessary material, use the Shapes element - simply change the color, size, and opacity to eliminate unnecessary information.
Be bold and experiment with different ideas once you find what works best for your students. With Edform's easy-to-use tools, customizing worksheets from the public library is a breeze. Just remember always to give credit to the original author and share your improved version with the community so others can benefit from your work too.
Tip #4: Use the Reports section to Track Student Progress
With the paper worksheets, it is very challenging to monitor students' progress, as the teacher is responsible for everything: reviewing work, grading, and preparing reports. Fortunately, Edform's Reports section makes it easy to do just that!
With Edform, you can keep an eye on how your students are doing on each assignment, and with the teacher-led mode, you can see their performance in real time. This insight can be super helpful in making smart choices about how you teach, like changing lesson plans or offering extra support to those who need it most.
Here are some tips for using the reports section effectively:
- Regularly check the reports section to monitor your student's progress and identify any areas of concern.
- Use the data to adjust your teaching approach and modify your lesson plans. You’ll see the percentage of the correctly done tasks and the overall grade.
- Look for patterns in student performance to identify common areas of difficulty and target those areas with additional instruction or practice.
- Encourage your students to reflect on their progress and set new goals by sharing their reports with them. This can be a valuable tool for helping them stay motivated and focused on their learning journey.
Tip #5: Collaborate with Other Teachers on Edform
