What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning? | Innovatieve eLearning | Scoop.it

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.

How to Get the Most Out of Student-Owned Devices in Any Classroom

How to Get the Most Out of Student-Owned Devices in Any Classroom | Innovatieve eLearning | Scoop.it

Technical issues with devices can be a headache, so setting some ground rules for device management helps mitigate some hiccups. Mills recommends making it clear that it is students’ responsibility to bring their device to school charged and ready to go. Designating a spot on student desks or tables where devices go when they aren’t being used for a specific assignment is also a great way to deter students from succumbing to distraction.

"If you are planning to incorporate iPad in your classroom teaching then you definitely need to work on some preliminary stuff before anything else. These are basically formalities and conventions students need to abide by when using iPad in class. Making students explicitly aware of their responsibilities behind using iPad in class will certainly help you tap into the full educational potential of this versatile gadget. I have gone through my archive and picked out these handy visuals for you to use with your students."

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning | Innovatieve eLearning | Scoop.it

I believe in student-centered learning, and I believe there is huge potential for this kind of learning to occur in online environments. But the instructor is a key element of that learning, and we need to talk more explicitly about what her role is and the specific ways she negotiates and leverages her authority, guidance, and presence to design learning environments in which emergence is possible.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, August 21, 9:13 PM

An art teacher and I (drama teacher) started to use a negotiated approach with students about 15 years ago.  By working with students to be aware of curriculum expectations and discussing "what would this look like" we assisted students with developingntheir own learnign pathways and expressions of their learning - in keeping with the legislated requirements of curriculum.  I've also noted over the years that elements of the International Baccalaureate - particularly the project work from MYP - reflects a similar approach.

Without reference to research literature, I'd speculate that this speaks to engagement, authenticity and relevance... and needn't be confined to K-12 contexts.... well-documented project work could be conducted outside the confines of formal classes and evidenced against formal assessment criteria.

Durriyyah Kemp's curator insight, August 22, 11:10 AM

Project-Based Learning is a great vehicle for allowing student to gain social and emotional learning (SEL) skills.  The five core competency skills for SEL (self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision-making, and self-management) can be easily integrated into any project-based learning opportunity.

Un buen artículo.

 

Tiene razón: Los niños y jóvenes pueden pasar horas con un vídeo-juego a pesar de que fallarán el 80% de las ocasiones y "perseverarán con  una determinación casi irracional", algo de esta perseverancia y determinación sería útil en el salón de clases.

 

Sin embargo, las críticas a su propuesta de usar juegos en la clase también tienen sentido:

"¿Qué pasará el próximo año cuando asistan a una nueva clase y se den cuenta que la escuela es trabajo y no 'juego y diversión'? Los estás preparando para una decepción."

 

Un interesante debate.
