Why Feedback Needs To Be Integrated Into Flipped Classrooms

Why Feedback Needs To Be Integrated Into Flipped Classrooms | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Flipped classrooms are getting plenty of headlines and attention lately in educational circles. While conceptually they sound great the reality is that they require a great deal more effort on behalf of both students and teachers.

"Since the 1995 introduction of the TIMSS studies (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) and the 2000 start of the PISA assessments (Program for International Student Assessment), much ink has been spilled on the subject of where American schools and American students stand vis-à-vis their international counterparts. While the TIMSS and PISA rankings themselves are straightforward, there is considerable disagreement, often contentious, over what those international comparisons tell us about the state of American education. Both market critics of American public education and critics of the market-based reforms of the last decade and a half point to American education’s international standing as evidence that supports their respective policy agendas, while others dispute the very suggestion that meaningful causal
links can be drawn between the international rankings and broad policy agendas. Other flash points revolve around how educational performance is shaped by the rate of childhood poverty, by the professional status of teachers, and by theexistence of a national curriculum and national standards. The panel will discuss these and other facets of America’s education from a global perspective."

Barbaric Yawp in the 21st Century: Using Tech to Engage Budding Poets ~ Edutopia | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

by Beth Holland

description by MiddleWeb SmartBrief


"Teachers can inspire young poets by incorporating multimedia presentations, popular music and student artwork into poetry assignments, former teacher Beth Holland writes. In this blog post, Holland describes a number of ideas for engaging and tech-infused poetry assignments, including creating short films that accompany an original poem, or empowering students to share their poetry with a wider audience by creating an e-book and publishing it to the iTunes Bookstore."

Mobento - Search and view the world's best educational videos

Mobento - Search and view the world's best educational videos | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

"Our mission at Mobento is to help video learning achieve it's potential. And that potential is enormous. It’s not hard to see the parallels with the opportunity to learn created by the invention of the printing press. Video learning brings forth a freedom to learn about anything, to do so directly from the world’s best educators, to do it wherever you are and at the time of your choosing.


"This rich opportunity is open to everyone, whether you want to study a formal course or simply dip your toe into something that intrigues you, whether you’re an educational institution or simply curious about life.

We created Mobento because we believe that technology has been under-serving education. High quality videos are hard to find while lots of dross is pretty easy to stumble into. And searching for the pearls amid the clutter is time consuming.


"In short: we think the world where video meets education “could try harder”… as your old school report used to say.


"We believe Mobento can help by getting the basics right. By organizing content better, being brutal in quality control, and being top of the class in innovation."
