I just got this link from @jimknight99 on Twitter. It is an article by Daniel Pink on how @karlfisch is teaching his algerbra class.
Most teachers, teach during class time and then send their students home with some practice problems. Karl Fisch records his lesson on Youtube and asks his students to watch it at home. Class time is used for working on questions.
What a radical concept! Of course it helps that we now have computers, and the internet and Youtube to make this all possible.
I’m thinking of the possibililties for this idea in the Learning Commons. What about a clip on how to research or find a book or how to use an ereader?
Either I have to get over my shyness of being in front of the camera or find a student who is more photogenic then me!
