Students Show Students How it's Done

My students need a group of cameras so they can record videos explaining how to do things in math better than they've seen it explained.

My Students

After having me explain how to do something, students then do problems, either on Khan or text. Some think the explanations on Khan are confusing. I'd like to challenge them to make better ones.

My student come from a variety of places, background and financial variety.

This school is very diverse in the true sense, not just one non-white population as the word is frequently used. My student are a rainbow of diversity. They are also diverse in their economic background. Some have parents who haven't been to college, and they don't own a computer and some have two parents that both have degrees and everyone in the home has their own computer and several other pieces of technology as well. This is true for both my classes and for the entire school.

My Project

One thing teachers know is that when a student is able to explain how to do something, they have developed a deeper knowledge. I often have students work on problems on Khan Academy. Sometime the students find the videos helpful, and other times they say it leaves them more confused. I would like to see if they could make videos that explain thing better. I can play some of the videos when the students are doing the chapter review.

While making the video, students will need to discuss with their group how to best describe how to solve the type of problem they are working on.

Hopefully, this will ensure that everyone in the group is now capable of solving this type of problem.
