Instructional Ideas

  • Use in a flipped classroom scenario. Have learners watch the video and take the quiz at home
  • Great for sub plan days—watch the video, take the quiz, then research each question that was answered incorrectly
  • Have class draw and label the parts of the brain and how each part is affected by alcohol
Classroom Considerations

  • The video was created in Australia, where the legal drinking age is 18; thus, the video refers to teenagers drinking
  • Score sharing options are only with Twitter
Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Quiz has options to get a hint from the video or to check answers
  • Share quiz scores via Twitter
Cons

  • Single-function app, only has the video and quiz
