After trying a variety of different platforms for teaching Algebra, I found that the most effective way to mirror the interactive delivery in the classroom was to record my lessons on an iPad and Apple Pencil that I borrowed from a neighbor. These devices allowed me to teach with the same guided examples and my own handwriting, very similar to the way we conducted lessons in the classroom. It also had much better sound quality than the lessons that I tried to record from my laptop. Lessons recorded on an iPad also allowed me to work through problems and explain each individual step by way of the Apple Pencil. These lessons were far more detailed than ones where I had to click through a slide show and my students loved it. I plan to continue making lessons of this type even after school operations return to typical operations because they are an awesome resource for a student who missed our live instruction. These videos are especially helpful for students with special needs who need to work at their own pace or maybe working with a co-teacher in a smaller group setting. The iPad videos would allow them to access the same materials presented in class while still making accommodations for each individual's specific strengths and weaknesses.
