Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros | The Digital Shift 2013 - The Digital Shift

Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros | The Digital Shift 2013 - The Digital Shift | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it
Three experts shared tech tips and tools during “Flipped School Libraries,” a rapid-fire, dynamic session during The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries (#TDS13) webcast.



Through the use of innovative technologies and online resources, school libraries can now be available tostudents wherever—and whenever—they need them. “Flipped” or blended learning offers students thepower of personalized instruction, through a mix of virtual and face-to-face interactions, at a student’s own pace. Embracing this concept is a must for student engagement and the future of the profession, say school librarians Joyce Valenza, Brenda Boyer, and Michelle Luhtala.

Flipped Learning Network Podcast

Flipped Learning Network Podcast | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Aaron Sams and Jonathan Bergmann, the gentlemen credited with starting flipped learning, have been extraordinarily busy as the concept and grown and spread very rapidly in the past year. 

 

Their book, Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day, was the first joint publication effort by ISTE and ASCD and they have criss-crossed the nation making presentations. Their site https://flippedlearning.eduvision.tv/default.aspx, has published 100s of how-to videos on numerous aspects, grade levels, and subject areas related to the flip. (Unfortunately, they have chosen to charge a hefty $97 apiece for viewing these videos. I know it costs to produce the videos, and the presenters are justified in being compensated for their time and effort, but this price is well out of the range of what teachers can afford for their own PD. Surely a better model can be developed)

 

Bergmann has posted a significant amount of links to free videos and podcasts on his personal website http://flipped-learning.com/?page_id=421.

 

Happily, Sams and Bergmann have also chosen to establish a podcast network...and this is without cost. To date (7/23/12), seven podcasts have been posted...at the rate of approximately two per month. The interviews and discussions provide insights, tips, and resources by flip practitioners. Click on the flipped learning logo above to be taken to the podcast network. -JL
