How I Teach About Big Data and Lesson Plan with Vicki Davis
In this episode, I give you a peek into my classroom. I take a topic that isn't super simple — databases — and show how I teach it with 2 simple projects, some game-based learning, concrete examples, and how my students all master the topic in five days.
While you might not be interested in Big Data or databases, it is part of your student's future and so it is good to be introduced to the topic. Of interest to most of you, however, will be how I plan lessons. I design ahead for common mistakes, use concrete examples, use formative assessment and don't test but have mastery from all my students. This may sound impossible but it can be done. I hope this helps and encourages you and it also helps show how I reach kids who are at home as well.
