My Journey

Mathematics teacher working on students agency.

I firmly believe that any online educator wishing to put students at the centre needs a combination of:

*Technological approach (videos, quizzes)

*Non-technological (personas that can draw on students' experience)

Background

When I started flipping the classroom for my calculus course, I did so that students could spend classroom time refining their learning by questioning and investigation. During lessons, students are offered activities that help them to make the connections between different calculus concepts, outside lessons students watch videos to reinforce the concepts learned.

Little did I know that I had just embarked myself in an ongoing learning journey.
