The 6-step guide to flipping your classroom - Daily Genius

The 6-step guide to flipping your classroom - Daily Genius | history teaching ideas, research and resources | Scoop.it

It’s one of the most talked-about trends in education right now. Right behind the iPad and Common Core. Flipping your classroom is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. That’s great, because it offers a lot of advantages for your classroom regardless of your students’ age or what subject matter you’re presenting in your classroom. If you’re new to the concept, flipping your classroom can feel a little bit overwhelming: How much should I switch around? What is best for the classroom vs at home? Why am I doing this again anyway?

Simple infographic that gives clear and simple guidance to the process of 'flipping' a lesson.  Good to demonstrate 'simplicity' of process to sceptical colleagues.

Kristen McGowan's comment, August 9, 2014 5:21 PM
This was an incredibly quick read being an infographic. While flipping the classroom sounds like a daunting process, this 6 step guide provides a clear sequence on how to initiate this change.

Digital Storytelling With Comics

Digital Storytelling With Comics | history teaching ideas, research and resources | Scoop.it

On Monday I published a short guide to digital storytelling with comics. This evening I gave a free webinar presentation based on that free guide. More than 200 people registered for the webinar in less than 48 hours. If you wanted to join and missed it, the recording of the webinar, sponsored by Storyboard That, is now available here and as embedded below.

Excellent guide about how comics can be used to create short stories or to storyboard a larger project. Links to free versions of related software too - StoryboardThat.com; WeVideo.com (for turning comic strips into movies) and WidBook.com (for creating multimedia ebooks - and it's also a collaborative writing platform).

ColbyccSSS's curator insight, January 20, 2014 10:00 AM

This is worth checking out. I am always searching for new ways to reach my students.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, January 31, 2014 9:31 AM

This could be a very interesting program that could be used with students to review or retell what they have learned in a class.  We would love to teach this to your students and help them through their first project.  Any takers?
