8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development

8 Steps To Flipped Teacher Professional Development

The idea here isn’t simply that educators can improve by connected through social networks–they already are doing that. Rather, that schools can decentralize the teacher training effort by cutting them loose and supporting their self-directed efforts through an array of resources. The purpose of this post, beyond clarifying some how social media-driven and self-directed teacher professional development might work, is to offer some (mostly) concrete ideas for actually getting started designing such a program in your school or district. We would love to hear any suggestions in the comments because, well, that’d be social of you.

Our iPad Classroom: The One Where We Switch to Front Row

Our iPad Classroom: The One Where We Switch to Front Row | iPads at St Edmund Campion | Scoop.it

My 4th graders have been using the newly revamped Khan Academy website on our iPads since Mid-November. Things have been going great and I have seen a fantastic, better than average, increase in MAP Math scores from August to January.

 I read a Tweet recently that mentioned an App called Front Row (or Front Row Ed Math). It is very similar to Khan in many ways but has some thing unique to it that I really like. Both Khan and Front Row are FREE and both give teachers access to "More Data About Their Students Than They Could Ever Use."

Flipboard As a Textbook Replacement | The Thinking Stick | iPads at St Edmund Campion | Scoop.it

OK…so let me clarify that title. I honestly think textbooks are on their way out…or at least I hope they are. Really it should read “Flipboard as core curation artifact for classrooms” but that wouldn’t have you here reading now would it.

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads at St Edmund Campion | Scoop.it

"Today while I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I came across this fabulous Bloom's Taxonomy wheel of apps shared by Anthony. If you still recall, some previous versions of this wheel have already been featured here in Bloom's Taxonomy for Teachers section .


As you can see, the wheel outlines a wide variety of verbs and activities related to each thinking level of Blooms taxonomy coupled with iPad apps that go with it. These apps are supposed to help teachers and students better cultivate these different thinking levels in their use of iPad apps. And because the the visual is not hyperlinked, I went ahead and provided the links for each of these apps in the lists below. Enjoy"

Evolution, in its broadest sense, serves as a force to help humans move towards a better way of living given the current times or Zeitgeist.   It follows, then, that the education field should evolve as new opportunities and forces emerge and present themselves.

7 Fabulous iPad Apps to Create Short Animated Lessons for Your Flipped Classroom

7 Fabulous iPad Apps to Create Short Animated Lessons for Your Flipped Classroom | iPads at St Edmund Campion | Scoop.it

"Flipped learning or flipped classroom is a learning concept that has been making some huge uproar within educational circles for the last couple of years. Flipped classroom is not a new concept as some would argue but only the advance of technology particularly the mobile and handheld gadgetry brought it to the surface and gave it more prominence . I have written profusely about this teaching/learning strategy and  Flipped Learning Resources section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning features some of these materials."

With that in mind, below are 30 of the best apps for getting this kind of work done in the classroom, with an emphasis on group project-based learning apps for both Android and iPad (and even a few for plain old browsers)."

63 Things Every Student Should Know In A Digital World | iPads at St Edmund Campion | Scoop.it

"But in an increasingly connected and digital world, the things a student needs to know are indeed changing—fundamental human needs sometimes drastically redressed for an alien modern world. Just as salt allowed for the keeping of meats, the advent of antibiotics made deadly viruses and diseases simply inconvenient, and electricity completely altered when and where we slept and work and played, technology is again changing the kind of “stuff” a student needs to know."

Textbooks replaced by iTunes U downloads

Textbooks replaced by iTunes U downloads | iPads at St Edmund Campion | Scoop.it

The exam revision season is approaching. It's when students want as much information as possible at their fingertips.

So how about if you could touch a screen and download all the lesson materials you need?

Not just broadly relevant, generic materials, but the actual classes you've studied, video and text, put together specifically by your own teachers.

These are the equivalent of digital textbooks supporting lessons for each subject, including the days missed or forgotten.

And for good measure, how about if every student in the school could look at the materials on their own individual iPad?

This isn't a "classroom of the future" experiment or a Silicon Valley sales pitch, it's a school in Cambridge.

The Stephen Perse Foundation school is building a pathway that others could soon follow. It's clever and digital, but also practical and easily shared.

20 iPad Apps to Showcase Students Learning

20 iPad Apps to Showcase Students Learning | iPads at St Edmund Campion | Scoop.it

There are several ways to enable students to showcase what they have learned. While some of these ways do not require technology, my emphasis today is on those handy digital apps that learners can easily install on their iPads and use to demonstrate the insights and knowledge they have garnered in class. Students can showcase their learning through video recordings, screencasts, sketches, drawings, posters, audio recordings... and many more. I have done some digging through the hundreds of apps I have been reviewing this year and come up with the list below.
