Before Reading or Watching Videos, Students Should Experiment First

Before Reading or Watching Videos, Students Should Experiment First | Learning Technology | Scoop.it

The study’s conclusion suggests that the current model of the flipped classroom should itself be flipped upside down. The researchers advocate the “flipped flipped classroom,” in which videos come after exploration and not before.

Interesting "flipped flipped classroom", makes sense for my learning style but I wonder how reflective learners would find this experience.

Angela C. Dowd's curator insight, August 2, 2013 3:33 PM

Experimenting first sounds good, though I think it depends on the learner and on what is being taught. I like the idea of pushing the envelop to be more inclusive...yet not throwing out things that continue to work (for some types of learners).

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 5, 2013 10:00 PM

What can we do to help students learn and to provide teachers more time to work with students? How can technology play a role in this? To answer these questions the post discusses a book by Daniel Willingham, "Why Don't Students Like School."

The authors state that the book can be boiled down to this statement: "Students don’t like school because school isn’t set up to help them learn very well." As the days of the one-room school house shifted due to the Industrial Revolution classes moved from small multi-age groups to larger groups based on age and that has not changed significantly. Differentiation is discussed but it is not always easy to differentiate in a classroom with 25 or more students, and today we are told we must personalize education to meet the needs of each student.

One way we may be able to meet this need is with the use of "adaptive learning software." This post continues to explore some of the pros and cons of this.

There are some schools that are using adaptive software with success, and Carpe Diem-Meridian, a public school in Indianapolis. Click through to the post to learn more. Would you like to see adaptive software become a part of your school, so that some students would be using software that targets their skills while you work with others in smaller groups?

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 10, 2013 10:39 PM

As we move to the Common Core and we look at the Depth of Knowledge that will be required for our students it is clear that the need for our students to create is critical. This post starts with the following sentence:

"When was the last time your students said “Wow, that worksheet changed my life”?  Can you even remember a similar cookie cutter classroom activity or assignment from your days as a student? Yet they were a popular tool because they were structured and efficient in getting the class to a set finish point."

After presenting "the exploding volcano project" the post turns to four strategies. The short hand version is below. Click through to the post for additional information.

1. Start with your specific learning objective.

2. The idea to be expressed comes before the tool used to express it.

3. Make asking "How will this show mastery of the learning objective?" your classroom mantra.

4. Engage in evaluating the PROCESS of creation and not just grading the finished project.

There is also an example a learning objective and a project that one student submitted.

Drora Arussy's curator insight, July 29, 2013 4:41 AM

Another wonderful example of a use of the flipped classroom - calculus. By allowing for some lectures to be done on an individual basis while students may repeat, slow down, speed up, pause, review, respond and all that while the teacher is free to work individually with students, incrate th larning t h next level, help facilitate their discussions and intersts. The transfer to language study is so evident- imagine not spending hours in the classroom reteaching the grammar topics in foreign language, but instead answering individual pointed questions and facilitating conversations that incorporate those concepts. many of us went the route of no grammar only to see many students need it, particularly the older students. A flipped classroom allows for the possibility of individual progress while not stopping a whole class.

For those using this in history - flipping must free up time and mind space for collaborative thought and projects and some wonderful discussions!
