This installment in the @5min Video "series" is on Simple "Do" Activities and Puzzlemaker sites.
Description: "Do" activities allow for interaction with knowledge that is presented in "Absorb" types of activities (Lecture, Readings) so that students can begin to transform the information presented into knowledge and skills. "Do" activities can also come before "Absorb" activities to indicate gaps that will be filled in by the "Absorb" part of the class (i.e. pretest). "Do" activities range from simple games to role playing to case study analysis, in this video I'll focus on using simple word games to help student better internalize and organize the vocabulary of a particular topic, class, theory, etc. If this is a topic you'd like to talk about further, please let me know there are lots of good services out there that we can use.
