6 Things Teachers Do to Flip the Classroom

6 Things Teachers Do to Flip the Classroom | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

Get 6 Real World Examples of a Flipped Classroom from Subject Experts.

 

The Flipped Classroom model is changing the ways students learn and teachers teach. When you flip your classroom, you offer your students rich, engaging material to consider at home, and you use class time to help them interact with the ideas. Lecturing during class time is minimized and students have a teacher nearby when they are doing work and most likely to need guidance.

The key to "flipped" is to rethink who has control of content and learning. These are some great tactics to help move instruction toward more student-led learning.
Kimberly A. Hurd's curator insight, May 31, 2013 5:52 PM

Great insight. 

Upfront40's curator insight, June 3, 2013 7:35 AM

Flipping the classroom is an ideal way to assist students who want to get ahead and be challenged while at home.

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

The problem is that Wikipedia in the classroom has gotten a bad reputation in the K-12 world, undeservedly so I think. I would suggest that Wikipedia can be used for a multitude of educational purposes at a wide variety of grade levels. Too many teachers are still afraid to use it in class, so I’m here to right that wrong and show our educators how they can responsibly integrate Wikipedia into their lessons.

Από το άρθρο:"

Be sure to check out Wikipedia’s own resources for teachers as well. They have an awesome 12-week syllabus showing you exactly how you can integrate Wikipedia into your classroom. They also have training designed especially for educators."

 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, May 25, 2013 6:12 PM

Giving these types of skills to students can help them with their understanding of writing and also help teachers with avoiding the copy and paste syndrome in tasks.

NETS for Teachers

NETS for Teachers | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

ISTE's NETS for Teachers (NETS•T) are the standards for evaluating the skills and knowledge educators need to teach, work, and learn in an increasingly connected global and digital society.

 

As technology integration continues to increase in our society, it is paramount that teachers possess the skills and behaviors of digital age professionals.

 

===> Moving forward, teachers must become comfortable being co-learners with their students and colleagues around the world. <===

A teacher is no longer the master of knowledge, only the facilitator who can guide the student away from the overwhelming amount of irrelevant information towards useful digital content.

A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor

A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

"In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach, and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this 'pedagogy.' What is clear is that major changes in the way we teach post-secondary students are being triggered by online learning and the new technologies that increase flexibility in, and access to, post-secondary education."
