Reflection: Adaptive Technology An Introduction to Free Body Diagrams - Section 2: FBD Pre-Test


Our district is doing some pilot programs with blended learning classrooms, and as I went through this lesson I was struck by how awesome blended learning could be when used with a pre-test. If a student was able to properly draw each of the free body diagrams on the pre-test, that student would be able to go ahead to the next lesson without having to wait for the rest of the class. Also, a student who was still struggling after the solution share would have an opportunity for remediation on FBDs. The possibility to offer more personalized instruction based on students' needs holds so much potential, so I hope to bring a blended learning pilot into the AP Physics world sometime in the near future!
