What every school needs from a digital strategy

What every school needs from a digital strategy | Education technology | Scoop.it

The problem is compounded by the fact that many of the adults involved in education simply lack the experience and skills to be appropriate role models in the use of social media. This is why a greater, more concerted and more constructive involvement of schools in the digital lives of their students is necessary if we want our students to understand how to be good all-round citizens. Simply ignoring this other dimension of pupil behaviour seems to me to be grossly irresponsible.

Its about the pedagogy not the technology! Teachers have to adapt to a different style of teaching.

10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom
Stephen Howes's insight:

I do not regard the cons as "cons".  These are common sense obstacles for embarking on this mode of teaching/learning.  For example, an educator would not choose this mode of learning if it is already known that accessibility would be an issue.  Point 2 in the cons is reasonable, Point 3 is common sense, but Points 4 and 5 are a joke.  "The Pros" carry so much more weight and are what we should be paying attention to.

Ten Questions You Should Ask Before You Flip Your Classroom - jonbergmann.com

Ten Questions You Should Ask Before You Flip Your Classroom - jonbergmann.com | Education technology | Scoop.it

As the school year starts, many teachers are wanting to implement flipped learning into their classes. Before you begin, I encourage you to answer each of the questions below. The purpose of the questions is to help teachers BEGIN the process of flipping their class. This is only the first step. Flipped Class 101 can lead to Flipped Learning, which is a second stage of the Flipped Class. Many teachers are asking for some step by step guidelines as they begin.

I think this is great too (thanks for finding it Greg).  I think I will put these questions on my desk to refer to each time I think of making a video.

Some very good points raised here...as you would expect from Bergmann. I particularly like the fact that he talks about how it is not just a 'video' ..there is more to it...at least to do it properly.

Stephen Howes's insight:

Another analogy may be "the dawn" of this style of teaching and learning, afterall there will be a sunset eventually.  Keep experimenting and keep making mistakes - essential.

"Maximise student engagement and learning".  

I like the comment that he expects it to become standard practice as teachers experience the qualitative and quantitative benefits.
