Alan November’s video sample – Bob’s prime factorization. http://www.mathtrain.tv/play.php?vid=86

It’s getting to the end of the term and there are assessments due, reports to write and general busyness is in full swing. My students have an assessment due tomorrow, then another week of school before holidays. So, what to do?

Recently I have been lucky enough to hear Alan November speak at two different conferences. He, amongst many other things, discussed the concept of students creating videos which demonstrate a concept. These videos were then made available to the world. Authentic audience, task and real world feedback. Great stuff. 

Guess what my students will be doing next week 🙂

PS. A friend of mine has a good post on more of Alan’s ideas here.
