Your team will review the following student projects and prepare to share the following with the group:
  1. An overview of the project including: teacher(s), location(s), objective
  2. What did students do in this project?
  3. How was the classroom "flattened?"
  4. Who did the students in the class work with?
  5. How could you do a similar project here? (Brainstorm ideas, this may be in any subject area)

You will share this with the group. (note: You may have to dig around to figure out what the students did, but I've given you hyperlinks.)

Mathtrain with Mr. Marcos



What Did Students Do

Students created videos about various mathematical concepts and topics.




How was the Classroom Flattened

The purpose of the student created videos was to allow for "kids teaching kids."



Who did the students in the classroom work with?


They might have worked alone or with other students using the teacher as the facilitator.
In the end, they were working with students (and teachers) from outside their own classroom to make videos on requested topics.



Ideas for Similar Projects


students use Jing to create video tutorials on various topics in math.
Students could use videothread to discuss topics in any subject
A student or group of students could create their own wiki or blog with the purpose of answering other students' questions; kind of a study site.



Bonus:

Communication Methods Used


Asychronous

Researching math topics, creating the videos, uploading the videos.'
Other students viewing tutorials and videos
Responding to viewer requests for tutorial topics

Synchronous


Working with other students unless they worked at separate times.
In-class instruction with math teacher
