1. **** Go
to moodle.tvcs.org (do NOT type in www. first). The video worked best at school when students opened up the videos in Chrome, instead of Internet Explorer. If you cannot see the full screen, try using a different web browser. The videos are loaded into Moodle correctly.
the log in page, students must enter their school computer log in and
password. If they change their password,
moodle automatically updates the change. They must write down their password
in their agenda. I CANNOT reset their
password, so this is THEIR responsibility.
3. **** When
logged in, they should see “Counts-Math” as their course. It is, also found on the left under “My
Courses”. Click on “Counts-Math”.
4. ***** Next
they will see “Chapter 2”. Click on
that. From here they are to watch the video listed for that day's date AND complete the practice problems listed for that day's date.
What is a flipped classroom?
A flipped classroom has students doing, what would normally be their homework problems in class with me. At night students will be required to watch the video lesson for tomorrow's work on the computer. I believe a flipped classroom makes sense with the new math standards and new testing formats. Instead of parents trying to help students with problems or questions that don't make sense to them, I will help the students in class. The lesson videos will be available all year for students to use to study for tests and quizzes. Also, parents can watch the videos with their child to help them understand the new curriculum. Videos will not be longer than 20 minutes. If your family does not have access to a computer, tablet, smart phone, or the internet, please let me know when you return my syllabus. My classroom will be open Monday - Friday for students to use our computers for no charge, if your child does not normally attend After Care. Students in After Care will be able to come to my classroom, too. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me. Here are some websites that explain the "flipped classroom":
