One of my goals when I decided to write this blog was to give myself time to reflect, and to help others who are thinking of flipping. That being said, I have recently had a lot of people who want to see some example videos. Therefore, I am embedding several examples of different videos I've made this year. They range from early on (when we didn't have all our current technology), to my most recent where I am using slideshows.
This first video is one of the first that I made. When I first started flipping I was using i-movie, then trying to attach it to my Edmodo site. I also did not have our doc/camera hooked to the computer with the right software, so I was dragging my computer into the middle of the room & using my built in camera to video tape our projector screen. I was finding that the pictures were very small, and they skipped a lot. The quality...not great.
Lesson 1-1 Solving Comparison Problems
The second video is once I discovered Schooltube, which in turn compressed the videos for me & also made the screen larger with less wait time for the kids...bonus!
Lesson 3-1 Fraction/Decimal Comparison
Eventually I got all the correct software loaded onto my computer & I was able to record straight off my computer (Yeah! No more dragging my computer into the middle of the room).
Lesson 4-3 Review & Recognize Congruent Shapes
The final video I am going to post is the kind of video I made when I have enough time to create a slideshow (usually this coincides with vacations b/c otherwise I just can't fit it in!) I use screencast-o-matic to record my screen, then I upload that recording to Schooltube (for all the same reasons I said before).
Lesson 5-13 Finding missing numerators & denominators
For my next post I'll talk about the process of making the videos, and the pro's and con's to different programs I've used.
