My videos are available in the Flipped Classroom page of this site or on my YouTube channel. However, to make it more convenient, tonight I posted one of my teaching demo videos that I created for the purpose of demonstrating how I use technology for delivering instruction in the classroom.
For those who are interested, as you watch the video please keep in mind that I am teaching to 53 kids, 4 different grade levels (9th-12th) and 4 different courses all in the same class (Art 1, Art II, Honors Art and AP 2-D Portfolio Art). I do this 6 times a day!
In the video, I demonstrate the art lesson by projecting my Flipped Classroom video on the Promethean board. This enables me to demonstrate art skills to 50+ students enabling the students in the back of the classroom to see my demonstration. This method of teaching also frees me up to be able to circulate around the classroom making sure that all eyes are on my instruction, thus eliminating behavioral issues. As you will see, I 'lovingly' run a tight ship in my classroom with little to no discipline issues, thanks to technology.
Having my instruction archived on videos also allows for those students who are absent to be able to view the instruction at home via the internet or when they return to school. Lastly, by archiving my instruction, I am able to have students who need more repeated instruction go back and review the video as many times as needed until they reach mastery of the concept or skill, thus increasing learning gains in my classroom. Also, notice that if a student walks into the classroom late, I can address that situation at the same time my video is playing so that the flow of instruction in the classroom in not uninterrupted!
I hope you enjoy the video. For more information on the Flipped Classroom method of teaching, you can visit another site that I created called, Emerging Trends in Technology.
