    I am using Playposit to make watching this video a whole lot more engaging. This is a great tool that allows you to overlay interactivity on videos. Rather than videos simply being used for passive consumption, we can use the video as a content piece around which we engage in conversation, correction and more. We will learn more about these ACT pedagogies in this video.

    During this lesson, we will look at the issues with current approaches to edtech, and then at a possible solution. You will get opportunities to stop and pause, and engage with the content. So stay alert! You're about to get @CTIVATED!
