|Practicing a flip in class
Sometimes, students create videos during class and then I assign them to the class for homework. I'll expand on this in a later post.
|Practicing taking notes
The bottom line is that with a flipped classroom, class time is no longer used for passive learning - it's all active while they're in the classroom.
- Flipped videos have made a huge different to my child, he struggles with reading but is much better at math. The flipped videos allows him to do math without the struggle of reading, he can view a video for as many times as he would like.
- An added benefit is that I can watch the video and help him, I have realized that I actually remember more then I thought from my days in math class.
- Taking notes is a skill that he is developing as he is watching and he is not surprised by what will asked of him the next day. The videos are short and not overwhelming and it makes it way more fun to do it on the computer.
- I think it is a lot more fun instead of taking home a worksheet you get to watch and video and it makes learning easier.
- It is fun because he includes things we like.
- I like flip notes because you cannot use the excuse of you lost your worksheet.
