Have I mentioned how much I love Chemix? Not just the product but everything about how they interact with and respond to their users

I have one in the same boat... also frustrated that they decided on this extra “make up request window” without sufficient warning or announcement. I feel like I learn everything from Twitter, which is frustrating.

Physics students when they’re first trying to describe an object that gets faster with a negative acceleration

A static recording of a synchronous Zoom conversation doesn’t really count as “asynchronous” learning, at least for the purposes of access. Nor does a mere recording of a face-to-face classroom session.

They certainly do and that’s the order I’m used to teaching it in. What surprised me was how the opposite order may be fruitful too. And it will depend on the students, the course, and the particular topic. But there’s something different there worth considering.

That’s what I’m used to doing. My revelation was how the opposite may be fruitful too. Which I’m sure will depend on the group of students, subject, and topic involved.

Yes! One-on-one, I try other explanations or try to help the student find methods that work, but I’ll fall back on these when needed. When abilities vary I will use every tool in the toolbox.

Hey dudes . Sheriff's race in Cobb County GA that y'all should be paying attention to. is running to replace GA's Arpaio-wannabe Neil Warren. Warren uses 287g program to turn deputies into ICE agents.

I think I’ll explore this example with my students when we learn significant figures next year. Good communication >> unnecessary precision (especially when the level of precision is incorrect)

Our school’s personality definitely shines through our instagram stories 😂😁 Thank you for your insights!

Gotcha. My immediate reaction was LMS 😓 but now that I think of it, our school has done a good job of staying connected and maintain community through Instagram, but I think our website could be better

Trying to teach science without conducting labs is like trying to teach Defense of Dark Arts from a textbook.

Someone who misses a f2f meeting doesn’t want to or should watch/fast-forward through pauses, waiting for chats, side conversations, or repeated explanations. They didn’t have time for it when it happened, they probably don’t have time now. 2/2

This is one reason I struggled with recording and posting our live Zoom sessions. Instead I followed up with an email summarizing FAQs across all my chem classes, including pictures and linking to short videos where appropriate. Validating to know I was on the right track. 1/2

So practically speaking, what are some ways to re-create those non-classroom learning spaces online? Or those end-of-class conversations?
