For this weeks discussion, please take a deeper look at the TED-Ed “Flipped” lessons that are available. These lessons are short videos that introduce different Math concepts and can be applied to various grade levels. The concept of “Flipping” is an important element in moving away from Pencil/Paper math approaches and from the routine “Drill and Kill” exercises that are all too common in Math.
1.) Please watch the following two Video’s posted below:
After watching these videos, please comment below on your opinions regarding these “Flipped” lessons. How do you think the approach can be beneficial in a classroom that is becoming increasingly more technological? Please give your feedback on the following 3 Essential Questions for this week:
-How can “Flipping” be used to enhance the Math learning process?
-What can “Flipping” do to increase shared lesson approaches between teachers of the same grades in the same districts?
-As a teacher, how would you utilize “Flipping” to create more accessible lessons that still adhere to the Common Core?
Finally, reply to 3 other posts on the comment board. As a heads-up for next week, the posts will still be discussion oriented, but will shift towards a more collaborative focus, so be prepared to have to work in groups to answer the discussion questions.
