It was an exciting week! I have been asked a lot about how my students did this year, after “flipping” my class, compared with the past. I have always responded that the students were happy, I was happy, and it alleviated the anxiety, which was my aim… And there were various other pleasant “side effects” from the experience. But people always want “data”! Unfortunately, I have only just began teaching, so I don’t have much “past data” to compare to. And this was my first year teaching via video lectures, and I had a tiny class, so I really don’t have much “present data”. But I can report my observations and the numbers that I do have… so I did. And two articles came out on Thursday:
- The Daily Riff – The Flipped Class: Show Me the Data!
- If you don’t read “The Daily Riff” already, I would definitely suggest checking the site frequently. A lot of great, fun to read articles. Great source of information to stay on top of things!
- This was a guest post, so I’m very appreciative for the opportunity to share and hope you enjoy!
- If you want to read more about what the “flip” was all about in my AP Calculus AB class this past year:
