See Cassandra Knutson's Winning Video: Flipping the Classroom with Schoology

Posted in Pro Tips | April 23, 2013

Our winner of the Power User Contest: Using Schoology to Flip the Classroom category is Cassandra Knutson of White Bear Lake High School in White Bear Lake, MN. Cassandra teaches Chemistry for grades 11 and 12 and has been using Schoology for a total of three years. Her video is a shining example of how Schoology can be used to flip instruction and use classtime for more project-based work.

We asked Cassandra if she had any advice for implementing technology in the classroom. She had this to say:

"Technology should help you transform the teaching and learning process and should be effective for both you and your students, so don't use technology just for the sake of using technology. Every technology has its purpose just like every tool has it purpose. Choosing the right technology at the right time, like choosing the right tool for a job, is essential.

Start with areas of comfort and grow from there. Don't feel pressured to include a technology in your classroom just because others are doing it. Find things that work for you and your students, have fun, and be creative with your technology use!"

When we asked her about her inspiration as a teacher, she replied, "I am inspired and motivated by challenge and by my students."

 

 

Thank you Cassandra!
