Grade Twelve Students Create Videos to Showcase Problem-Solving Skills
By Sang Lee, Linden Teacher
According to KS Sawyer of Western University’s Centre for Education Research and Innovation, “the best learning takes place when learners articulate their unformed and still developing understanding, and continue to articulate it throughout the process of learning … While thinking out loud, they learn more rapidly and deeply than studying quietly.”
Grade 12 students were challenged to create videos to explain and articulate their thought process in solving Characteristics of Polynomials problems. In the videos, you can see their confidence in their own ability. Watch out, Khan Academy!
