Do your students learn from watching instructional videos such as those found on YouTube, Khan Academy, or Learn Zillion?
Do you have advanced or independent 5th grade math students who would benefit from using videos to learn at their own pace, but you need a way to record their learning?
The Independent Video Learning Log is a three-part document that can be used to provide students with learning at their own pace and a means to record their learning after viewing teacher-selected math videos.
Part 1 - Cover Sheet and Student Profile
The student completes the cover sheet with information about the subject and video topic for viewing.
The teacher completes the Math Deficit Areas Individual Student Profile by checking specific grade 5 Math Common Core State Standards of the student's deficit area. Also, recording any Test Results, Goal Setting percentage, and Results after the student views identified videos in his/her deficit area.
Part 2 - Video Logs & Reflection
The student keeps a record of the video's titles and length watched for each as well as recording notes (math terms, strategies, new ideas, new knowledge) and examples used in the video.
After each video, students reflect on their understanding of the prescribed math skill. Students are required to watch 3 videos for each math topic prescribed by the teacher and complete a log and reflection.
Part 3 - Assessment
The student practice the skill(s) watched. Sites like Khan Academy provides practice and hints after several videos. Part 3 provides space for students to show their work of practiced problems with the teacher setting a goal. For example, Sarah will answer 4 of the 5 geometry problems with 80% accuracy.
The teacher will provide feedback in the results section based on the student work from above to make informed decisions for future instruction.
