Iowa Story: Indianola Elementary TAG Teachers Blends their Classroom

Hear from Shari Shaw and Brian Baker, Gifted and Talented teachers at Indianola's four Elementary Schools as they talk about how they use flipped learning to extend their time with their gifted and talented students.

Quotes from 5th grade TAG math students:
  • “I understand the concepts easier as the learning is much clearer, and I’m developing math concepts quicker.”
  • “I can check my own work instantly and on Ed Puzzle there are questions during the video to see if I am understanding the concept as I watch the video.” 
  • “I really like watching the videos as I can rewatch them until I have a clear understanding of the concepts. All of this saves me time as I am able to get more of the work completed in the classroom and get help from the teacher if I need it.” 
  • “It is fun as I am able to learn at my own pace.” 
  • “Blended and flipped learning helps me understand the concepts, it is less time consuming and makes math easier.” 
  • “We watch the video to learn the concept then talk about what we don’t understand.”
