Visiting Brookwood School

Last week Demetri and I drove up to visit Brookwood School. Doug Foederman, school's Technology Director, shared some examples of  teachers experimenting with the flipped classroom concepts.  Teachers use Camtasia-screencasting software to create instructional videos and post lessons for nightly homework to the school's Vimeo account.  Here are the links to their 8th grade math and science videos

Brookwood has also redesigned an old PC lab into an Idea Lab. With an idea paint covering the walls, a colorful rug with a pinwheel design and a movable walls with castors it works as a new collaborative and creative space for any classroom projects.
