Video: "My Favorite No"
Horrified and hopeful as I am about my own and others' failures, this teachers' simple but powerful treatment of students' mistakes has a powerful appeal to me even though I have no idea if it's truly innovative or even effective:
This is my kind of flipped classroom -- where mistakes are lauded and perfection avoided -- even better since it doesn't involve expensive equipment like clickers and the teacher seems to be over the whole "teach by personality" thing. It's also the example Vicki Phillips used in a recent talk to illustrate the Teacher Channel, which is one of the many things the Gates Foundation is working on. What do you think, pro or con, about this example and the whole idea of shared teacher videos?
