What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning?

What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning? | Elearning and Mlearning Topics | Scoop.it

Why do I characterize this explanation as a flipped classroom and not flipped learning? Because, contrary to popular belief, these terms are not synonymous. Yet nearly every article written on these topics mistakenly equates them.

Wort looking at the four pillars of F-L-I-P

 

Flexible Environment:

 F.1: I establish spaces and time frames that permit students to interact and reflect on their learning as needed.  F.2: I continually observe and monitor students to make adjustments as appropriate. F.3: I provide students with different ways to learn content and demonstrate mastery.

Learning Culture:

 L.1: I give students opportunities to engage in meaningful activities without the teacher being central.  L.2: I scaffold these activities and make them accessible to all students through differentiation and feedback.

Intentional Content:

 I.1: I prioritize concepts used in direct instruction for learners to access on their own.  I.2: I create and/or curate relevant content (typically videos) for my students.  I.3: I differentiate to make content accessible and relevant to all students.

Professional Educator:

 P.1: I make myself available to all students for individual, small-group and class feedback, in real time, as needed.  P.2: I conduct ongoing formative assessments during class time through observation and by recording data to inform future instruction. P.3: I collaborate and reflect with other educators and take responsibility for transforming my practice.

Keep in mind that no matter what 'method' you use it should be focused on the student and their learning. Very well explained in this article!

Build Your Digital Writing Toolbox: Collaboration Edition

There's more to writing than writing. This is the deck from my 2014 talk at the Web Conference at Penn State. It describes the importance of the "workflow" mindset for approaching your writing, a framework for analyzing your workflows and choosing appropriate tools, and a number of tool recommendations for each section.

"Today I am sharing with you a host of carefully selected apps that students can use on their iPads to help them both in the planning of their studies and  in their homework. Using these apps students will be able to organize their study materials, arrange their classes and courses, track their assignments and tasks and also collaboratively work on their homework. Of course the list is not exhaustive and there are several other apps to be added to it but I only included the 6 most popular ones."

10 Ways To Be A More Reflective Teacher

10 Ways To Be A More Reflective Teacher | Elearning and Mlearning Topics | Scoop.it

 

"Teaching isn’t easy.

It will challenge your content knowledge, pedagogical skills, charisma, diplomacy, communication, statistical analysis skills, and a dozen other strands you didn’t know where strands. Some teachers may try to tell you that being happy doesn’t matter. That it’s about results. Data. Performance. Or more rhetorically, the students."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 18, 8:44 PM

How can we become better teachers? One way is to reflect on our practice. There are times when we team teach or collaborate, but for most teachers our days are spent in our classroom with our students. This post provides 10 great suggestions on ways to reflect on your teaching. Below are a few of the ideas.

* Record video of your lessons (and then share the video with colleagues and have them provide feedback also).

* Ask the students for feedback (this may be a bit scary, but chances are they will have some insights that would assist you)

* Surround yourself with enthusiasm & possibility (all too often we see the negative...try going in the opposite direction and see what happens.

Seven additional ideas are found in this post. Check it out and make some notes for what you might try next year.
