Adopting Lightboard for a Chemistry Flipped Classroom to Improve Technology-Enhanced Videos for Better Learner Engagement
Fung, Fun Man
Journal of Chemical Education, v94 n7 p956-959 Jul 2017
Currently there are two primary methods of recording flipped classroom videos: (1) using the white board and (2) screencasting a PowerPoint presentation. Both methods have several disadvantages. In the former, the presenter's body obscures the content. Both methods lack an element of human interaction between the viewers and presenter and require lengthy editing. These reasons discourage educators from adopting the flipped classroom. In this article, we share our motivations and experience with the Lightboard, an interesting method of filming with a glass board that addresses the aforementioned problems. This novel format, first introduced and developed by Professor Michael Peshkin at Northwestern University, could help achieve our pedagogy goal of engaging chemistry learners better by providing greater visual connection with the lecturer.
