i know there are some amazing youtube channels out there for flipped AP biology classrooms (like bozmanscience, etc) - do we know of anyone leading the way with quality chemistry video lectures yet? if so, can you provide a link? thanks!
brightstorm.com has many topics covered in chemistry. Lectures are usually less than 10 minutes. Follows information in the Glencoe book well.
thank you Judy!
Thanks so much Brian and Dena for the offer to use your resources. Time is a factor and the summer is going quickly!!
I just posted a safety quiz on youtube. In the video, I make all kinds of mistakes and I plan on asking the students to point out all the mistakes as their safety quiz this year.
My other videos are on wikispaces: http://flippedap.wikispaces.com/, but I'm thinking of moving them to ed.ted.com this year. I don't want to rely on youtube, since that is blocked at my school.
I realize this is several months late, but for archival sake: Bozman has Chemistry too. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL43285691048DAD00
There is always Kahn Acad. But I tend to find him dry and dull. I produced my own for my classroom but don't have the confidence to share.
Good Morning Everyone! I just wanted to add what I have found works, and doesn't with flipped chemistry classrooms. I have flipped several units with my students and I am going to a completely flipped model for the second semester. At the end of each course, I have my students complete a survey to find out what works and what doesn't, and here is what I have found.
1. The students want to hear form you, their teacher. So, find a method of making videos which works for you. Other videos can be used, but sparingly. I hesitate to use Khan because there are errors in several of his chemistry videos. However, I have used that as a review for students, and I ask them to "find the mistake". They did like that, but it would get old if you used it too much.
2. I use point values for assignments within a unit. The students work through the unit, and I am constantly circulating, helping, and "spot grading" assignments. They turn in their work for the entire unit all at once, but since I have already "spot checked" much of what they turn in, it isn't horrible to grade.
3. I have two different video lecture tools I use. The first is iSpring, which is a program that links to your existing PowerPoint, and allows you to add video, audio, youtube, etc. In addition, you can add a quiz at the end of the video and the program sends you a report of each students' grade on the quiz. I also use ShowMe, which is a free app you can use with your iPad. It is beautiful! I love it for problem solving with chemistry because it is like a virtual white-board which also records sound. There is a bank of videos which can be found at showme.com.
4. Take your time with this and allow the parents an opportunity to watch a flipped lesson. I plan to flip my syllabus for the next semester. The students will have their parents watch a video about how the class will work, and then they will digitally sign the syllabus form using googledocs. I'll let you know how that turns out.
I hope this has helped...
I have not used any outside sources for video so far this year because I don't want to lose my connection with the kids. That said, I think that supplementing with other resources can only help the students. With many people flipping, there are videos available on youtube that cover almost every chemistry topic you will cover this year. I think it's important to support the idea of students using resources that will work for them.
I also use Tyler Dewitt and Learning4Mastery
