I was able to complete all five of the lessons that I had planned for my Gas Law topic. This is a chemistry topic that all chemistry students must master for the chemistry SOL. My module is designed for a flipped class. I sought to expand my module to include more online resources and a greater online presence than I usually have in my typical flipped lessons. Since I have laptop computers in my classroom, some of my online resources were completed by pairs of students in the classroom in a self-pacing environment. The online homework assignments were done individually with feedback from me or immediate feedback from the online quiz program.
I would particularly appreciate feedback on the choices of online resources that I used for the in-class activities and those that I chose for the individual homework assignments. I would also like some suggestions for some more student-student involvement. I have added discussions for many of the lessons, but I really would like some other choices for student – student interactions.
I learned a great deal in the process of developing this module. I thoroughly enjoyed searching out and discovering all of the resources that I used in my module. There are so many wonderful sites out there… it is often really difficult to make a choice… but it is so much fun to just explore! I was also able to make and improve a few of the video lectures that used in the module. I think I have a much better understanding of the components needed for an effective online experience. I am excited to continue to work on improving the online component in my flipped class.
I am not sure exactly how I want you to evaluate my module, just give me your candid opinion on what I did well and where I need to improve. I do plan on using the module in the next few months and I can change the areas where you think I need to improve.
