Flipped Instruction or No Instruction?

Flipped Instruction or No Instruction? | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Another premise of the flipped classroom model is that in order for students to interact with content in class, they must watch a videotaped lecture on that content before class (courtesy of their teacher or a virtual teacher like Salman Khan). In short, students watch the lecture at home, then work in class the following day on what would have been their homework. Hence the term flipped instruction.

 

But what if students don't need any instruction? What if they could learn from an activity by simply engaging in that activity? What if lectures are unnecessary, as I asserted at a recent workshop for new teachers?

Project Tomorrow | Speak Up | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Speak Up 2013 National Research Project Findings: A Second Year Review of Flipped Learning is a collaborative effort between Project Tomorrow and The Flipped Learning Network using data from the more than 403,000 K-12 students, parents, teachers, administrators and community members that participated in the 11th annual Speak Up online surveys in the Fall of 2013. For the second year in a row, specific questions were asked of students, educators and administrators on flipped learning and use of videos in the classroom. Teachers and school administrators were asked to comment on their current or planned implementation of this innovative strategy.

This new whitepaper reveals significant growth in just one year in interest and implementation of flipped classrooms and a drop in concerns about student online access. Teacher interest in professional development on making quality instructional videos and on how to best use class time in a flipped classroom remained high, but this concern among administrators has declined while some are beginning to provide this training.

Speak Up 2013 flipped learning findings include:

One out of six math and science teachers are implementing a flipped learning model using videos that they have created or sourced online.        16 percent of teachers say they are regularly creating videos of their lessons or lectures to students to watch.   45 percent of librarians and media specialists are regularly creating videos and similar rich media as part of their professional practice. 37 percent of librarians are helping to build teacher capacity by supporting teachers’ skills in using and creating  video and rich media for classroom use.While, almost one-fifth of current teachers have “learning how to flip my classroom” on their wish list for professional development this year,  41 percent of administrators say pre-service teachers should learn how to set up a flipped learning class model before getting a teaching credential.66 percent of principals said pre-service teachers should learn how to create and use videos and other digital media within their teacher preparation programs.  75 percent of middle and high school students agree that flipped learning would be a good way for them to learn, with 32 percent of those students strongly agreeing with that idea.

I love Flipboard and use it as a supplementary textbook filled with literature notes that I have gleaned off the Internet for my pupils or that I have created myself on Google Drive. I have connected my Twitter account to Flipboard, so I can send tweets of my material, which can then easily be flipped into a magazine of my choice.

WOW! I use freewrites in my face-to-face class because I don't believe a person can write without thinking. Yet, the document students are writing about is always distinct from the free write. In LMS discussion boards the situation is the same.

 

Do you remember how annotations use to appear in the margins of really good books? This is the same. The two-pane interface puts the document right in front of the student and lets them attach their comments to specific paragraphs, pictures or videos.  How perfect is that?

 

I want to try this for a quarter.

The Problem with the Flipped Classroom Movement

The Problem with the Flipped Classroom Movement | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"The flipped classroom is just that, a classroom with the times attributed to certain tasks that are flipped. It is not student centered, but just a rehash of sage-on-the-stage direct instruction. The problem with the flipped classroom or student centered learning is that the students dictate the pace. In addition a great deal of learning takes place in group settings with dialog. We do not live in a schedule free world. Most schools have an Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate curriculum. Both of which have time constraints due to testing. In addition, many schools use SAT testing for college entrance, and classes have to end with a certain amount of learning that needs to take place. Students have a timeline. Allowing students to learn at their own pace could lead to a lot of problems."

It's neither the delivery model nor the tools that enable learning. It's the experience.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 20, 1:24 PM

Mark Page-Botello makes a good point about the need for student motivation. I think teachers have to be as active, but in different and, perhaps new ways. I think of Whitehead's phrase about learning being about the character of the pupils and the genius of the teacher.

Steve Vaitl's curator insight, February 23, 10:42 AM

For my teaching friends out there;

I must agree this is a problem as the classroom becomes a place of "easier and easier learning" the work place becomes a place of "continuously more difficult working demands". If we tie together the flipped classroom with a schedule of the time in the classroom it may be a way to address this valid issue.

Why Teachers Matter More in a Flipped Classroom - by Jon Bergmann - EdTechReview™ (ETR)

Why Teachers Matter More in a Flipped Classroom - by Jon Bergmann - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"The reason Flipped Learning makes teachers more valuable is that it changes the dynamic of the classroom.  No longer is content delivery the focus of the class, nor is the teacher’s main responsibility the dissemination of knowledge. Instead, teachers take on the role of a facilitator of learning.  They are able to work with students in small groups and have more one-on-one interactions.  The simple act of removing the direct instruction (lecture) from the whole group changes the dynamic of the room and allows the teacher to personalize and individualize the learning for each student. Each student gets his/her own education which is tailored to his/her needs.  Instead of a one size fits all education-each student gets just what they need when they need it."

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, January 25, 6:15 AM

This is often something I am asked to explain when it comes to why i flipped my classroom - 'But doesn't it mean you have nothing to do?' Yes, it has meant a bit more preparation. Yes, I have to think carefully about how to differentiate, how to lead, how to learn with kids. Yes, it is tiring. 

 

But, I get to talk to every kid in every class, every day, This is why I love it - it lets me connect to all kids, not just the overly confident ones or the struggling ones. This is why it is one of the few teaching philosophies I have tried, and not dropped. Every child. Every day. In a secondary school, what can beat that?!

Charlotte Walters's curator insight, April 11, 8:24 AM

Hello, Year 9! 

Here is an excellent resource regarding questions that a critical thinker asks whilst reading. I believe this will be incredibly useful for you as you develop your chapter summary for chapter four of The Outsiders which is due at the end of this week. Remember - you can present your chapter summary in any way you wish - a story board, a mind map, a Prezi, a short multimedia presentation, whatever takes your fancy. 

As a critical thinker, you will need to develop the skills to read between the lines of what the author (in this case, S. E. Hinton) is describing through the text. This infographic provides you with some questions to help you get into the role of a critical thinker, and get you started on your project.

Definition of Flipped Learning

Definition of Flipped Learning | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"To counter some of the misconceptions about this term, the governing board and key leaders of the Flipped Learning Network (FLN), all experienced Flipped Educators, have composed a formal definition of “Flipped Learning.” Explicitly defining the term may dispel some of the myths repeatedly promulgated by teachers, the media, and researchers.”

Flipped Learning is a pedagogical approach in which direct instruction moves from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive
learning environment where the educator guides students as they apply concepts and engage creatively in the subject matter.

Taylor Wilton's curator insight, March 10, 6:24 PM

What a brilliant resource for learning and teaching!  Teachers can simply create a quiz with the content of their choice (dependent of the focus learning area).  Teachers can choose the type of video and image to act as a visual aide on the quiz through a 'drag and drop' creator tool.   Once the quiz has been created, it is ready to be implemented in the classroom.  Teachers can project the quiz on the overhead project/interact whiteboard if it is a whole class activity quiz, where students can answer with the press of a button on individual devices (ipads, phones, laptops).    This interactive tool can be used to enhance students' critical and creative thinking skills, where they must think for themselves and assess the content provided.   Teachers can create a quiz that focuses on Sustainability, where students can learn in a safe learning environment, through game-based learning.
