Reflection of Flipped Lesson

Flipped Lesson 2

Part 1: Reflect on what you see

What went well?

  • I believe that I hit the learning targets better in my second video. I was able to use the tools better with a different program in order to use the real materials that I would have used in class digitally. This made my production better because I was more relaxed like I would be presenting the lesson face to face. Also using materials that would be familiar to the students would make them feel more comfortable and would know what to attend to.

What could I have done better?

  • I probably should have watched the time a little better in order to cover less than 10 min or I would have to pay to upgrade. I also could have made the screen a little more still so that the page wasn't moving up and down so much. I also didn't see until after the video there was a button in which you could turn off recording the cursor. These things I believe cause a bit of a distraction but I know that most flipped videos are raw.

Part 2: Create a Plan for the future

What did you learn?

  • I learned that I believe that I could eventually get better at flipped videos. I didn't realize the approach fully of what I was suppose to be doing when making my video. I believed I was looking more for production than for the content and lesson itself. I was able to learn from that mistake and apply the lesson more to the video in a more effective way.

How will you apply what you learned in the future?

  • I will now be able to understand different creation programs for flipped videos and be able to better pick out which one will be the best choice for that type of lesson. I will use this knowledge on future assignment and in my future career as a teacher. Homework assignments and absent students can be two effective ways to use flipped videos. Effective flipped videos can effectively teach lessons and being able to practice in order to get better will make me more willing to use flipped videos in my future classroom.
