Phoning it In

Posted by on January 3rd, 2012 Posted in: Teaching Technologies


A recent blog post by Dr. Ramsey Musallam about the flipped classroom and the digital divide provides a creative answer for students who don’t have Internet access at home.  First, for students who need it, he sends them home with content on a DVD or a flash drive which they can use at the public library for example. Second, and this is the creative part, he has these same students phone in their answers. Dr. Musallam uses Google Voice, which is free. He created a form [http://www.musallamchemistry.com/resources/Lecture-Summary-Rubic.pdf] which provides a general format for the students to follow when they call in their assignment. Google Voice translates their voice to text and then Dr. Musallam catalogs their responses along with all the other student responses.  Digital divide or not, Google Voice offers another way for students to interact and respond to class materials. To learn about Google Voice go to: http://www.google.com/googlevoice/about.html
