The accurate-but-lame answer is "it depends" but nobody finds that satisfying. Fresh on the heels of my recent blogging about this subject, I tweeted:
I felt a bit self-conscious afterward. For one thing, the issue I have raised here several times before (STEM flipping vs flipped humanities ... they're not the same but I can't quite figure out why) makes another appearance.
But still, what if anything am I doing wrong? How much of this relates to my ADD? Hey look a squirrel! Is this also just about the fact that I like making videos?
Today I made the next video, to be assigned on Monday so I feel delighted to be several days ahead. I used Powerpoint Mix to produce this one, and that ALWAYS takes more time. About 60 minutes to get the text boxes and transitions just right, and 25-30 minutes to record voice-overs. However, unlike the webcam videos, building from a slideshow gives me modules to reuse and rearrange in later years. In fact, I re-purposed a couple slides from a 2016 video for the first couple minutes of the newest one. Also it gave me an opportunity for some slapstick humor at the timestamp below. Pretty sure the kids will like that part....
