Reflection: Lesson Planning Using Excel to Create a Histogram - Section 2: YouTube Video – Histograms in Excel


After going through the youtube video with my students during the class period, I couldn't help but wonder if it would not have been more effective to ask the students to watch this prior to class, rather than during class - thus using a "flipped classroom" type of approach.  After the video, I found myself adding to the "bare bones" nature of the youtube clip... editing the histogram, changing colors, exporting to a PowerPoint slide or Word document, etc.  With all of this said, I do think that it would perhaps be more beneficial to ask the students to come to class with the video already watched, or watch it at the end of the previous days lesson.  This would allow more work time for the students, and more opportunity for the teacher to supplement the video with the tips and tricks mentioned above.
