Making up class time online

It’s another way of learning: a virtual classroom that’s been set up by Stu Smith, a sixth-grade math teacher at Barker Road Middle School in Pittsford. “It gives them a lot of confidence knowing they can go home and review the lessons as many times as they need to,” said Smith, who started posting the lessons online last year. Around 80 percent of Smith’s 100 students use the videos that match each lesson they have in the classroom. “I really like them because in other grades in past years I had to ask my Dad for help if I didn’t get anything, and sometimes he’ll do like different methods and I’ll tell him, we didn’t learn that in class, that’s different,” said sixth grader Taylor Sampone. “But now this time we can actually use the videos and know that’s the way he taught us and still be able to learn.” Students also use the lessons to make up missed classroom time.
