Day 5: iPods

So, I’ve been trying out this “flipped classroom” thing (fad? trend?). In a “flipped classroom,” students will watch videos of lectures at home (while taking notes, of course!) and answer a few review questions on our Moodle site. Most of the videos were created by EPHS teachers and some are from various online sources. When students come to class the next day, I’ve read over their replies to the Moodle questions and tailor the day’s lesson to the individual students’ needs. We then complete a short quiz on the previous day’s lesson. The rest of the class time is reserved for students to work collaboratively on an assignment from their textbook. During this time, I’m circulating around the room answering questions and helping out. More about the Flipped Classroom here. I plan to blog about flipping more soon on my main blog.

For students without internet access at home, we load videos on iPod Touch loaners for the kids to watch at home.
