So it is an unexpected ice storm.. The worst kind.. They said it would not reach OKC and south in the morning but then today (10 minutes before my class) nonetheless they cancelled. Yikes..
So my undergrad class, integrating technology into teaching meets ONCE a week.. and to make matters worse, the other section had already met!
So scramble – what to do?
Make a video and push on.. That is what a K-12 teacher might need to do.. and is this showing flexibility? sure?
We were supposed to explore robots and AR and VR technologies in class. Totally hands on. but I was going to assign my badge on critiquing Donors Choose and reading about digital equity! The readings are still there.
Next week we planned to talk to about using books on Technology to teach about Tech – and luckily i did a webinar on this topic for Oklahoma State Department of Education and its Archived..
So what will we do..
We will watch the video! https://vimeo.com/243202001
How do I tell students what to do, a screencast video made with Quicktime. https://youtu.be/tuABFZux3Io
So is this Ideal.. No way.. but is it a way to not lose instructional time. This happens in K-12 classroom too.. So this is a great opportunity to model what real teachers can do..
