Des idées évidentes mais sans doute pas encore pour tout le monde !

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 6, 2014 12:55 PM

Relationships are at the centre of education. It is no longer teacher-centred or learner-centred. In a sense, teachers and students are learning alongside each other. I am not sure it will always be the teacher leading the way although they have to be willing to know when to let go and when to take charge. Content is still incredibly important in that unless it connects to the lives of teachers and students it is not practical and meaningful. Technology is rarely seamlessly integrated.

SAMR as a Framework for Moving Towards Education 3.0 - @jackiegerstein

"This presentation is based on the following . . . the SAMR model was developed by as a framework to integrate technology into the curriculum. I believe it can also serve as a model to establish and assess if and how technology is being used to reinforce an old, often archaic Education 1.0 or being used to promote and facilitate what many are calling 21st century skills, i.e., creativity, innovation, problem-solving, critical thinking; those skills characteristic of Education 3.0. Many look at SAMR as the stages of technology integration. I propose that it should be a model for educators to focus on Modification and Redefinition areas of technology integration. Why should educators spend their time recreating Education 1.0 using technology at the substitution and augmentation levels when there are tools, techniques, and opportunities to modify and redefine technology integration for a richer, more engaging Education 2.0 or 3.0?"

Flip, Choose, Game, Stick: Digital Learning Today - CCL e-Newsletter April 2014

Flip, Choose, Game, Stick: Digital Learning Today - CCL e-Newsletter April 2014 | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Learning on your own time, with any device, sounds good. But does it work? CCL's Samir Mehta explains four arguments for blending digital learning into your leadership development.

Flip the classroom. Here's a concept that has been getting traction in schools and universities. It makes perfect sense for developing leaders and teams, too.

The idea is to make the most of face-to-face teaching or classroom time by giving a new lesson via video. Learners — on their time — watch, skim or re-watch the lesson before it is talked about in class. The time together is then used to clarify, discuss and practice.

Charlotte Walters's curator insight, April 11, 2014 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.

eduCanon is an online learning environment to build and share interactive video lessons. Teachers begin with any YouTube, Vimeo, or TeacherTube video content (screencasts, Khan Academy, Minute Physics, TED, NOVA, etc.) and transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students. By time-linking activities that students engage with as the video progresses the content is segmented into digestible components - increasing student engagement and, through our real-time monitoring, informing the next day’s lesson planning.

Report: Interest in Flipped Classrooms Surpasses Other Digital Learning Trends -- THE Journal | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Flipped classrooms are having a significant effect on teaching and learning, according to a new white paper from Project Tomorrow and the Flipped Learning Network.

 

Key findings from the Speak Up 2013 survey include:

One in six math and science teachers surveyed said they use flipped learning;Sixteen percent of teachers who responded reported regularly recording lessons for students to watch online;Forty-five percent of librarians and media specialists surveyed told researchers they regularly create videos and other rich media as part of their jobs;Thirty-seven percent of librarians siad they help teachers use and create videos and rich media;Almost 20 percent of teachers told surveyors they want to learn how to flip their classrooms;Forty-one percent of administrators indicated that they think pre-service teachers should learn how to set up a flipped classroom before they earn their teaching credentials;Sixty-six percent of principals said they think teacher preparation programs should teach pre-service teachers how to use and create videos and other digital media for use in the classroom; andSeventy-five percent of middle and high school students said they think flipped classrooms would help them learn.

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.

Kim Flintoff's insight:

A useful checklist included for teachers to identify the degree of flip.

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.
