Explain Everything Saves the Day!
Submitted by Amy Cliff
What challenge, problem or motivation inspired you to make one small change?
When students emailed me questions regarding their math homework I did not have an appropriate tool to fully answer their questions. Typing out math is long and does not work well.
Tell us about your one small change:
Using an iPad, stylus, an app called ‘Explain Everything’, and YouTube, I was able to capture worked out math questions and then save the video and send the student the link to watch.
What was the result of your one small change?
The students really enjoy and appreciate the videos as they are able to pause and re-watch the videos as many times as they want. This small change has led to a larger change in my class as I have continued to make videos and post them to Moodle so the entire class can access them. The student feedback has been positive and I will continue to add these types of videos to my math classes.
