Flipping the Classroom

Flipping the Classroom | Alive and Learning | Scoop.it

Flipping the classroom involves assigning web-based content as homework that replaces the traditional in-class lecture, making time and space available in the classroom for more inquiry-based projects. Professor Eric Mazur began experimenting with this instructional style at Harvard in the 1990s. In 2004, the Khan Academy videos helped bring the classroom flip into secondary education.

compared to a free app, like mindjet for instance, is it really worth the 8€? Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Physics Games - online physics-based games

A collection of physics-based games that can be played online and embedded into a course VLE, blog or website.

 

The games are based on simple physics concepts and although they target secondary or middle school learners, remember it isn't the games it is how they are used that enhances teaching & learning.

 

Can learners explain the science concepts, discuss the strategies they employ, etc.

 

The one downfall of the site is that before each game starts there is a short commercial. However I've not seen any advertising that would be unacceptable in a learning environment.

A Time Management Windfall

 

People often talk to me about having great intentions about what they want to get done on a given day or week…

 

But then they get to work and it all those good intentions go out the window as they deal with all the urgent crap that comes up.

 

Endless Distractions

 

We are all faced with constant distractions and interruptions from others — not to mention a fair amount of wasted time that we inflict upon ourselves…

 

…through procrastination, 2000 messages in our inbox, or just the general chaos that leaves us waiting, searching, or wasting time vs. doing.

 

Create your daily 5 minute plan

 

I have found a simple practice that only takes 5 minutes, and it makes an enormous difference in turning those good intentions into finished work.

 

Each day, before you do anything else, spend the first 5 minutes planning your day. Think about and write down, “what are the specific things I need to finish today?”...
