How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.

Build metacognition through the use of flipped learning. Grant Wiggins states metacognition is the key to students internalizing reading strategies. The top-down approach of just teaching the strategies has proven ineffective.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 29, 9:06 AM

We keep chugging along, fussing about the old model but making few significant changes other than rearranging desks in the classroom, tossing some technology at teachers, fretting about flipped and blended classrooms, worrying about integration of SAMR or the current cool thing, and wringing our hands over the digital divide. But mostly it feels like we're churning though occasionally tilting in the right direction.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 29, 10:49 AM

Reform suggests that all we do is rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking ship. People from a distance, including the ubiquitous consultants who spend little or no time in real classrooms, rearrange classrooms, silence teachers' voices, and erase teachers from their very performance. Or, that is the impression given. When we combine Derrida's deconstruction and Dewey's reconstruction perhaps we can rethink what transforming classrooms and pedagogy can mean?

Become a Listening Educator: How to Hear and Connect to Your Students | LEARNing To LEARN

Become a Listening Educator: How to Hear and Connect to Your Students | LEARNing To LEARN | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
No matter how much you love your students, it’s not an easy task with so many of them in front of you and so many duties to balance.

 

How to Listen to Understand

Paying attention to students and listening to them can have positive, lasting effects on them. Listening is more than just hearing; it requires understanding predicated by a shift in how we listen.

Become an Active Listener: Active listening means listening with more than the ears. Posture, gestures, facial expressions, and verbal feedback (such as “aha” or “I see”) should reflect understanding. Students should be permitted to finish what he or she is saying before we reply, and judgments should never be made. When engaging in active listening, it’s important to ask for clarification when needed, and it’s equally important to not shut out words we don’t want to hear.Become Less Distracted: With so much noise and distractions today, we’ve become accustomed to tuning things out. Though it’s not easy, shutting out external and internal distractions, including personal prejudices and biases, invites full focus on what the student is saying.Become an Empathetic Listener: Like active listening, empathetic listening is a full-bodied listening approach that seeks to fully understand what the student is saying by reflecting his or her emotions. Empathetic listening is positive, not emotionally charged, and non-intrusive. When empathetic listening, it’s critical to avoid negating or brushing off a student’s words. Silence should be respected as a time of reflection for the student. Our demonstrated care and concern for students encourage openness and honesty from them, which can be quite a victory in tense situations.Become an Obvious Listener: Students are perceptive and can tell when someone is listening. A University of Nebraska study of fifth graders revealed teacher activities that helped students know their teacher was listening. These actions included looking the student in the eye without looking around the room, standing next to the student and looking directly at the student’s work, quieting other students while one student speaks, not interrupting, and offering feedback cues such as nodding.

A pesar de que el tema de escuchar activamente es algo que en el caso de los docentes debe aplicarse constantemente, la cantidad de actividades que se deben realizar con los alumnos para cumplir con el programa académico  pareciera ser una limitante para hacerlo. Sin embargo, hacer espacio para esta actividad tan básica, genera una ganancia impresionante. Escuchar es la mejor  forma de sensar  si nuestros alumnos están  logrando los objetivos de aprendizaje propuestos en el curso, así como para realizar ajuste en nuestra dinámica y forma en la que impartimos la clase.
