How I Use It
In the area of writing, I have (re)created my mini lessons on Educreations. Many times students are at different places in the process of creating a published piece of writing. So, sometimes I may give a mini lesson that applies to the majority, but not for all. The lessons created on educreations allow students to replay the mini lesson at any time when they are ready. It also works well for students who need material to be repeated. While I have only used it for mini lessons in writing, I look forward to creating math lesson.
I am so excited to be using this program! I am just beginning to understand flipped teaching and the one piece that I have used is the opportunity to make video lessons that students can access at any time. The first time I used the program, I watched one of their tutorials. Within 20 minutes I had created a video of my own that my students could watch the next day. By the end of the week, I had created 4 lessons.
