THE ONLINE CLASSROoM

ABOUT THE HOFFKIDS ONLINE CLASSROOM

Since 2013, the Hoffkids Online Classroom, has been a unique and highly effective way that my students do their math homework at times. Before I see the students again the next day in class, I already know:

Who completed

Which students completed their homework

When they did it

What time they did their homework

Time spent

How long they spent on their assignment and each question

How the class did

What math concepts were most missed from the class to be addressed the next day

How accurate

Which questions they got wrong, the answers they put, and their overall % score (scores never count toward their quarter math grade)

Who to remind

Which students and parents need an email reminder if the assignment is not completed at night

Feedback

Immediate feedback is one of the most effective ways to increase math learning. When students can see exactly where they made a mistake immediately after answering a problem, it gives them the ability to learn from and correct the error moving forward. No other homework offers this. Every single problem in the Hoffkids Online Classroom has a short video screencast I have made explaining the answer for my students to learn from. Students are not expected to watch them if they got the question correct (but many still do), but are expected if they get it wrong. Not going over math homework the next day in class means more valuable teaching and learning time inside the classroom!

Goals

High expectations lead to high achievement. The Hoffkids Online Classroom is designed where I set a special target % for each assignment so that the students know what is expected of them and are encouraged to work hard to achieve success. They are also encouraged to redo the assignment to meet this goal should they fall short of this %. Sometimes math homework assignments have been done nearly 200 times optionally inn one night from under 100 students!
