Mapping the Benefits — and Potential Drawbacks — of the Flipped Classroom

Mapping the Benefits — and Potential Drawbacks — of the Flipped  Classroom | Joining the EdTech Revolution | Scoop.it
Infographic highlights the challenges of the 'learn now, lecture later' approach. (MT "@EdTech_K12: Considering a move to the flipped classroom?
Lauren Boucher's insight:

I'm sure everyone has their opinions, but it seems to me there are quick fixes for most of the "drawbacks" mentioned in this infographic.  For example, it says students are spending hours watching video lectures.  A good rule of thumb for a flipped video is that it should be absolutely no longer than 15 minutes...5 to 10 minutes is the recommended.  If teachers are preparing a 45 minute video lecture, they're wasting their time, as well as the kids!

Tools and Resources to Find Licensed Images for your Classroom Use ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Joining the EdTech Revolution | Scoop.it

It is highly important that you teach your students the ethical use of images they find online. Be it on their classroom blog, personal website or any other multimedia project involving the use of images, students need to know that not every image they find online is free to use. There are some images that are copyright protected which means that their original owners require permission before using them. Using such copyrighted images without permissions leads to what is called" copyright infringement " a serious offence to the owner of the real work .

I don't often talk about it, but I own a little house in Sydney bay. It's not much, but I'm proud of it. The problem is that it is only virtual and made out of Lego. This wonderful site allows you to design 3D houses, or anything else, with virtual Lego on a virtual plot in Australia or New Zealand. It's like a simplified version of SketchUp, great for younger children.

Flipping The Classroom… A Goldmine of Research and Resources To Keep You On Your Feet

Flipping The Classroom… A Goldmine of Research and Resources To Keep You On Your Feet | Joining the EdTech Revolution | Scoop.it
Many educators are beginning to become aware of the growing teaching method referred to as “Flipping The Classroom”. Simply put… the teacher provides videos for homework, while traditional home work is done in class under teacher supervision. Unfortunately this might be just too simplistic of a definition. Possible this is why using the words “simply put” may not be the best practice in explaining anything.

Sure it's an extensive page - the research section could be better with reference to papers dated back to 1998 and 2001. The section "Resources To Better Understand Flipping the Classroom" is good including info graphics and a good link to J. Gersteins http://usergeneratededucation.wordpress.com/2011/06/13/the-flipped-classroom-model-a-full-picture/
