How great was FlipCon14?! I was lucky enough to attend “virtually” and listen in on some awesome sessions. I excitedly texted my husband and parents when Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams’ session started, feeling like a teenager at a boy band concert because, as I told my mother, “they’re the original flippers!” She of course replied, “isn’t that from the twenties?” No, mom..those would be flappers 🙂
One of the main questions/concerns I have about flipping my classroom is how I will hold students accountable for watching the videos at home, or on their own time. I’ve looked into using Google Forms, Educanon, and Edpuzzle…and I’ll use all of these, I’m sure…but I’m always searching for different ways to “assess” students on this task.
As I was listening to a session, the presenters answered a question similar to mine from the audience. How do you make sure they actually do their “homework?!” The presenter mentioned the 3-2-1 activity, and I absolutely love it!
Here’s the jist:
- Students record 3 things they learned from the video
- Students construct 2 questions about the content that they could ask classmates to ensure that their peers understand the content
- Students list 1 lingering question they have about the content…or if students feel like they have totally grasped the concept, they could list 1 “takeaway” that summarizes the content of the video (last option added by yours truly)
