Creating Video for Instruction
One of the ways we can accomplish a flipped classroom is through video instruction. You can make a short clip for students to watch outside and then using class time for teacher/student or student/student interaction mastering the skill or concept taught.
Simple directions can be giving on video through a variety of ways.
Any instruction you currently give while at a whiteboard, chalkboard, overhead, smartbard, etc., can be given through video, especially if you are teaching 4-8 grades. The iPad has a great app for writing, drawing, bringing in web images, etc. You can give your instruction, live. Teachers with smart boards can also do the same thing with their computers using their PC's You can also do lessons on a Mac. Most of these lessons on this page have been done on a MacBook Air. Many of them are fast and easy. I will give a few examples here, and if you have questions about ways for you to put together video instruction, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to help you with this.
