Wake Forest University welcomes the International Alliance for Women in Music.  Kudos to them for making their conference available to the world.

Most of my flipped lectures have been narrated PPTs like this one. Is the better than my screen scribbles?

Very nice quality powerpoints - the use of annotations really helps the presentation and focuses student attention to the critical part of the diagram under discussion. Nice Job!

With campus closed for snow and ice, I moved my physics class online.  I was delighted with the group dynamics.

Since this is a flipped class, we are accustomed to spending the time together on group discussion and problem solving. I was not sure how well these activities would translate, but my students adapted well, holding up to their webcams their  sketches and answers. 

What made me most happy was that the students were just as comfortable helping each other as they are in class  jumping in with explanations more clear than my own.

Kudos to #SnowDayTech! Kudos squared to my students, who are so willing to experiment.

U.S. is screening the wrong flights.

Greatest risk to fellow travelers and their hosts are people coming from California, Colorado, and those attending private schools in New York City. Travelers representing the lowest risk to fellow passengers and hosts? Those from Mississippi.

Mississippi public school vaccination rate: 99.9%. California: 92.6%.  Colorado: 83% - 88%. NYC private schools: half below 90% and one only 18%.

YouTube needs more license options for creators. I like CC BY-SA for my works. If you believe in an open world, you should, too!

I can second that! I also asked the youtube user forum why they don't offer more licenses, but I haven't heard back from them yet.

I am having fun experimenting with different approaches to flipping my lectures. Most have been narrated Powerpoints, and in a couple I shot video of myself at the whiteboard. In this one I use my touchscreen as a blackboard.

I am interested in hearing from my students which approach works best for them.

Now if only my handwriting was legible...

Lots of people have dabbled with Google Earth to fly around their neighborhood or poke around a 3D version Paris — but how many dropped $400 (per year!) for..

Thank you to those who placed their own lives at risk so that the rest of us may enjoy freedom. We owe you.

Pro Humanitate means Pro Humanitate.
More than 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at Wake Forest, universities across the country are making headlines related to race and identity. At a time when Wake Forest has a more diverse study body than ever, the campus community is addressing these challenges together.
