A colleague and I are playing around with the idea of flip classroom. This is when the student watches the lesson at home and then works on assignments and projects in class. So the teacher becomes more involved with the hands on learning and the passive lessons are left for home. Here is an article that talks about how two teachers made this flip classroom idea work for them. Click here. The time thing is my problem and becoming fluent at creating these lessons. I am not sure using other people’s videos is the best idea but that is where we will start. This is driven by my colleague (and friend) so I am lucky to be collaborating with her. I will post again to tell you how it went. We are attempting this with a Real Number video and an Absolute Value video.
More to come.
