Using TED-Ed Videos | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day…: "Using TED-Ed Videos
January 12, 2013 by Larry Ferlazzo | 0 comments
I have a number of reservations about flipped classrooms (see The Best Posts On The “Flipped Classroom” Idea) — both regarding pedagogy and practical issues (many students just wouldn’t do it).
However, I have found that some of the sites on my The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress list useful for a different situation — sometimes I have a student who is facing so many challenges, that periodically he/she needs a break from what we’re doing in class (and the class needs a break from them). During some of those times, I put the student at my desk in front of the computer, and he/she does a different project using one of those sites. It’s a far better alternative than sending the student to the office on a “referral.”
The two sites I think are the best for those situations are SAS Curriculum Pathways and TED-Ed talks."
