It’s as easy as going to the BubblePly website http://www.bubbleply.com/, uploading a YouTube video, and then following the user-friendly directions to add callouts (thought bubbles, commentary bubbles) that will nudge your student-viewers to think more deeply about what they’re watching by drawing their attention to specific content within the video clip. Once you’re done, save your project to your BubblePly space and it’s ready to show your students. <br />Examples:<br />http://www.bubbleply.com/player.aspx?pid=b1bf700f-6f47-4364-9dd7-e413706860b9 http://www.bubbleply.com/player.aspx?pid=EE1549C5-E35B-4F64-AA80-D4C1A220102F <br />
