Flipping the Recorder Classroom
…five years ago was a game changer. This year, Flipping the Recorder Classroom with Seesaw, the Learning Journal, was a life-changer! You can read about my early adventures with flipping the learning using old-fashioned email here and here. It worked great; my students would use their parent’s smartphone or the family iPad to make videos of their playing to pass off a required recorder piece. Then they would use their parent’s email address to send the video to me and I would listen and respond back through their parent’s email. It was amazing!!
Flipping completely changed how my one to one time was spent during class. My students were able to work independently and progress further than ever before. They were engaged in learning and in teaching others through the Recorder Repair Shop. I didn’t think it could possibly get any better!
And then Seesaw came along!
