Teaching, really teaching the basics
I’ve been all excited about the ‘level-up’ idea… but the lessons need to be even simpler and easier to relate. It’s clear there needs to be more chances to gain that knowledge.
Enough rambling. Idea time:
Maybe the team should summarize the learning for all groups.
Maybe there’ll be a test (showing examples to rate)
Maybe matching a written description to the improvment
Maybe a pop quiz
A project that uses all of the concepts?
Making a labelled diagram from a perfect example
Make a ‘level chart’ they can explain
Choose the best written description
choose best video description
Find the error.
Same concept, different materials.
Explain to a child
Best for me if it is reusable, shareable, easy to store/organize. Basically a video.
Best for students? The one that helps them actually understand.
The level-ups are already a video. Maybe I produced them too fast and should add a practice exercsie tot the end of each of them. They haven’t been shared yet, so I could still reedit to add a recap and exercise. Then again, the whole video is supposed to be an exercise in itself. Many of them already have a summary.
It needs to be something the students will have to process and vocalize.
Let’s see how that works.
