Other Websites

  •   “Flipped-Classrooms.”  Teachers in Colorado use pre-vodcasting to flip what’s typically done in the classroom and what’s usually done at home.  Students view lectures outside of class time and then use class time to work problems and interact with the teacher when they need to.  They incorporate mastery learning into their flipped-classrooms.  flippedclassroom.org
  •  “Layered Curriculum.”  One way to bring student choice to your classroom.  Layered curriculum has students choose which assignments and activities they want to do to get a specific grade in the course.  www.help4teachers.com

Assessment Technology

  • Examview.  Test creation software that comes with most published curricula.  You can print many versions of the same test with randomized aspects.  You can write your own dyanmic questions with random variables (the numbers given in the problem randomize on each version that’s printed out) if your publisher didn’t provide you with any.
  •  Moodle (a content delivery system described below) can deliver random questions to students as well, see this for information on how to do that.
  • OpenMark can be used with Moodle to create dynamic questions

Multimedia Content Creation Technology

Content Delivery Technology

  • Moodle.  Free content-delivery system.  You need a webserver that either has moodle or that you can install moodle on and then you can create your own classrooms.
