Part 5: The Results are In…

Well, Week 2 went much like week 1. Now that the initial unit is complete, it is time for another self-refection.

Things we thought we well:

  • Students were engaged and worked diligently.
  • Overall student learning increased. Most students improved their assessment scores; although, it did take some students more attempts than others.
  • Students seemed to take more ownership of their learning.
  • We were able to spend more time with individual students.

Things that didn’t go so well:

  • As usual, there were some technology glitches, but we seemed to have worked these out.
  • We need more equipment for some activities. It seemed like everyone wanted to do those activities at the same time.
  • Some students still needed some help staying on task and struggled with independent work.

Things that surprised me:

  • I didn’t expect to have so much free time during class.
  • I didn’t expect it to be so quick and easy to get assignments graded during class.
  • I was surprised at how long certain activities took compared to others.
  • I was pleasantly surprised at how well they adapted to the changes overall.

So what did the students think? Glad you asked. We did a survey using Google Forms to hear what they had to say. Here are the results:

So I guess you could say they liked it, so here goes Round 2…
