Sharing Practice: Teaching with Technology | Visme, Workshop & EdPuzzle

The move to the new Navitas Core Moodle is an exciting opportunity to learn about the features and reflect on how you could enhance your learning and teaching context.

To support teachers to make the most of this Moodle upgrade, the teachers are able to access a range of resources and professional development offerings. One such offering is the 4-week facilitated course ‘Building in Navitas Core Moodle’. This course gives content creators and editors the opportunity to work in their own sandbox developing resources and activities which they showcase at the end.

The latest group has now finished the course and are showcasing their thoughts and final course designs. Come along to this regular event to see how the participants applied the various Moodle resources and activities to support their pedagogical aims, and watch as they take you on a tour of their Moodle spaces.

Showcased activities:

Infographic creator apps – Visme
In the first part of the presentation, Roxy Hibbins showcases the use of infographic creator app – Visme, to demonstrate how to condense book content and make it more engaging and interactive. Roxy also discusses video discussion forums as an avenue of higher student engagement.

Moodle activity – Workshop
In the second part of this presentation, Nick Swallow demonstrates the use of the workshop activity in Moodle for peer and self-assessment.

Roman Ilgauskas shows how to integrate EdPuzzle as an Assignment activity in Moodle. EdPuzzle is a platform which allows the teacher to use any video and embed questions. In this example, Roman includes five multichoice questions about transactional analysis theory which when answered, informs the student of the correct theory details. Moreever, you’ll also see how the teacher can check the student’s application of the important theory into a real world (and funny) example.
