Building a Flipped Class – Episode 03 Tech Setup

Learning to use different tech in a different way. 

The Vlog Series

This is a series of vlogs that chronicle my attempt to build not just a new flipped class but an entire new course.  Join me as we look at developing an informal geometry class from scratch.  Although this is a math class, we talk about general flipped principles and methods that can be applied in a variety of situations. We will look at education theory and methods, technical tools, organizational patterns, lots of mistakes, serendipitous successes, more mistakes, and the many choices that can confront a teacher attempting to flip a class.

Episode 03: Tech Setup

In this episode we begin to get specific about the technology setup I am using as I start this project. I give a quick tour of the (less than professional) equipment I am using to create both the classroom and vlog content. I discuss the choices I made on what to use, what not to use, and the choices I think I may regret.  I also discuss some broader principles of content creation and flipped learning and the effect they had on my choices.
