Push my thinking

Is this actually a more effective form of instructing students? What can I do to encourage students to take the responsibility to view the screencasts independently? How can I support students when the screencasts don’t provide clarity? What activities would be valuable and exciting to enhance understanding of the content being covered in the screencast?

How can I make my classroom less teacher centered and allow for students to learn and explore history more independently?

Solution

Use screencasts and a class website to create a flipped classroom where instruction of content is completed outside of the classroom and class time is used for more engaging activities and skill building.
