The development of critical literacy in students is a large part of the new Australian Curriculum. The 'flipped classroom' can really assist teachers in developing higher order thinking skills, ICT literacy, and Information literacy.

Some strategies are particularly suited to younger students, where often the names that teachers have for these strategies provide a 'shorthand' way of communicating to students that they wish them to provide peer feedback.

Tips for Planning Interdisciplinary Units in Middle School | Education Week

Tips for Planning Interdisciplinary Units in Middle School | Education Week | Best Practice Instructional Strategies | Scoop.it

By Sarah Henchey

 

"I'd learned in my undergraduate coursework about how team-teaching could ease this transition, supporting students' social and emotional needs via interdisciplinary instruction. I just hadn't seen it in practice—until my principal arranged for a group of us to visit a nearby middle school.

 

"The neighboring teachers shared the ups and downs of the process they had gone through to establish their interdisciplinary framework. They had faced challenges—but they were forthright about the impact their units had had on student learning and engagement.

 

"Afterward, our 6th grade teachers committed to trying out one interdisciplinary unit by the end of the year. We stumbled through the planning and execution but learned a lot through our mini-experiment. This year, we vowed to make a more sustained commitment to interdisciplinarity—and we've already seen payoffs in the form of more intensive student engagement and better retention of knowledge.

 

"Here are a few lessons we've learned:"

TED-Ed, Khan Academy Enable Flipped Classrooms | Best Practice Instructional Strategies | Scoop.it

Educators interested in “flipping” their classroom (that is, providing traditional lecture material for review at home and problem-solving exercises in the classroom) now have two more options to provide core content with a minimum of effort. Yesterday TED announced TED-Ed, a service designed to “capture and amplify the voice of the world’s greatest teachers.” Also this week, Kahn Academy announced a new iPad app. In a shot across the bow of traditional textbook publishers, this repackaging of existing Khan Academy content provides downloaded videos, subtitles, and progress tracking (requires a khanacademy.org account.)
