6 Things Teachers Do to Flip the Classroom

6 Things Teachers Do to Flip the Classroom | NEWS TO USE! | Scoop.it

Get 6 Real World Examples of a Flipped Classroom from Subject Experts.

 

The Flipped Classroom model is changing the ways students learn and teachers teach. When you flip your classroom, you offer your students rich, engaging material to consider at home, and you use class time to help them interact with the ideas. Lecturing during class time is minimized and students have a teacher nearby when they are doing work and most likely to need guidance.

Always interesting to read examples of how folks flip!  

Marilyn Korhonen's curator insight, May 31, 2013 8:11 AM
The key to "flipped" is to rethink who has control of content and learning. These are some great tactics to help move instruction toward more student-led learning.
Upfront40's curator insight, June 3, 2013 4:35 AM

Flipping the classroom is an ideal way to assist students who want to get ahead and be challenged while at home.

Teachers or ‘Quantitative Learning Gains Facilitators?’

Teachers or ‘Quantitative Learning Gains Facilitators?’ | NEWS TO USE! | Scoop.it
Here are the competing narratives in the school reform debate. Pick the one that makes the most sense to you.
Kimberly A. Hurd's insight:
"But some teachers are fighting these trends. Teachers believe that education is not just teaching students to pass tests. They believe that education is not just about how to make a living, but also about how to make a life. They believe that school should be a place of joy in learning, not learning in fear. They believe that play, imagination, and creativity have a place in school, just as much as mastering difficult material. In fact, play and mastery go hand in hand. And these teachers are fighting to work harder than ever so they can continue to find ways to be creative in the classroom despite the pressure not to be. These teachers have classrooms you’d love to have your child in. These teachers are the teachers you don’t want quitting, yet the system is trying to drive them out, in favor of obedient curriculum dispensers (I call them Quantitative Learning Gains Facilitators.) The reformers manufactured a crisis so they could run schools for profit and make money off your children. That is the real narrative. We have a choice in this country. Keep listening to the story told by the “reformers” and end up with test-score mills even worse than the ones we have now, or listen to teachers who want a public education system that isn’t an industrial factory spitting out test takers but that offers schools that are places for deep thinking, learning, creativity, play, wonder, engagement, hard work, and intense fun."

When I tried to get students to ask questions this past year, I discovered an overwhelming idea that to ask questions was to admit not knowing, something they were not inclined to do. Have to change that type of thinking to get them curious again.
