Culling Flipped Classroom Best Practices from Successful Implementations

Culling Flipped Classroom Best Practices from Successful Implementations | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The flipped classroom has been around for years now, and it has matured from a new concept – to a ‘trend’ – to a technique that is now ripe for widespread adoption.


The use of the technique has evolved to the point that we are seeing a proliferation of published reports sharing measured successes. These stories can readily be culled for practices that have helped to turn the use of flipped teaching and learning techniques into improved learning outcomes in those schools.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

I agree with the concepts of "flipped classrooms" but socio-cultural aspects should be taken into consideration within your teaching and learning environments.

Six Questions That Will Bring Your Teaching Philosophy into Focus | Faculty Focus

Six Questions That Will Bring Your Teaching Philosophy into Focus | Faculty Focus | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Earlier this year, a couple of contributions to The Teaching Professor (Haave 2014) and Faculty Focus (Weimer 2014) discussed the place of learning philosophies in our teaching. The online comments to Weimer’s blog post (2014) made me think more about how we as instructors need to be careful to bridge instructivist and constructivist teaching approaches for students not yet familiar with taking responsibility for their own learning (Venkatesh et al 2013).

To Break the Mold, Is Competency Learning the Key? | Mind/Shift | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Ask an educator about what it’s like teaching a room full of students, and you’ll likely hear a similar refrain: No two kids learn the same way or grasp concepts at the exact same time.As a result, educators often say they resort to “teaching to the middle.”

 
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

This would be a great start, now if we move away from A,B,C's and GPA's grading systems as well as the Carnegie units for base credits, everything will begin to move forward...

What Makes a Great School Leader? | Edutopia

What Makes a Great School Leader? | Edutopia | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This is the time of year when, for many different reasons, some teachers consider taking positions at other schools. I've received a number of calls from friends and colleagues this spring asking for my advice on this difficult decision. Here's what I always say: It's all about the principal or head of school. Find a site with a great leader and while your struggles might not be over, they'll be significantly reduced. The three qualities I find most indicative of a great school leader are visionary leadership, community builder, and emotional intelligence.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

This is a good review of educational leadership. Sometime when a new visionary leader steps into a new learning environment... the environment is poisoned with false perspectives, opinions and rumors. Beware, the path of good intentions can be a road into hell...

"In our schools, “the emphasis is on what students need to learn, whereas little emphasis—if any—is placed on training students how they should go about learning the content and what skills will promote efficient studying to support robust learning,” writes John Dunlosky, professor of psychology at Kent State University in Ohio..."

Terry Doherty's curator insight, June 2, 6:02 PM

Until I had a child, it never dawned on me that she needed to learn how to learn ... Oh, how I wish I had had this road map to get us started.

Tony Meehan's curator insight, July 30, 8:18 AM

"Most striking, low-achieving students show “substantial deficits” in their awareness of the cognitive and metacognitive strategies that lead to effective learning—suggesting that these students’ struggles may be due in part to a gap in their knowledge about how learning works."

We cannot expect to narrow the gap until we take the time to provide low achieving learners, far too often those of low socio-economic status, with the tools to learn for themselves, to have the confidence to enjoy learning and be curious about the wider world.

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy | Edudemic

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy | Edudemic | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy. Obviously, depending on the grade level  you teach, your students will have different abilities in each of the four areas, so your expectations and your teaching approach may differ quite noticeably from your colleagues. But the nagging question still remains for many teachers – what exactly is digital literacy?

If you ask a student what makes him or her successful in school, you probably won’t hear about some fantastic new book or video lecture series. Most likely you will hear something like, “It was all Mr. Jones. He just never gave up on me.”

 

What students take away from a successful education usually centers on a personal connection with a teacher who instilled passion and inspiration for their subject. It’s difficult to measure success, and in the world of academia, educators are continually re-evaluating how to quantify learning. But the first and most important question to ask is:

The idea that different students may learn differently (otherwise known as ‘learning styles) is a pretty hot-button issue. In fact, I don’t think any other topic has garnered us such a large amount of hate-mail, even though we’ve tried to approach the topic from both sides of the argument.

 

That said, regardless of how you feel about whether different learning styles exist or not, there are many things that teachers have tried out over the years to see what works best for them and for their students.
