Why feedback needs to be integrated into Flipped Classrooms

Why feedback needs to be integrated into Flipped Classrooms | Learning@the_speed_of_change | 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. The need for teachers to develop quality material outside class time is a genuine drain on their limited time and becomes a significant obstacle to the uptake of flipping.

 

In a seemingly unrelated topic research is making an ever stronger case that effective feedback in a clear and timely manner has a significant influence of the achievement of student outcomes. This is especially the case for students facing high stakes examinations toward the end of their school experience. Summative evaluation through examinations is far from a new idea nor is returning papers and suggested answers. However, the merging of flipped classrooms and examination feedback may shed new insights and opportunities.

 

The following footage comes from a recent feedback session to 17 year old boys regarding their examination. The footage was taken from a notebook computer’s webcam and was simply recording in the background as the machine was used to project the feedback presentation. This clip is obviously a segment of a larger lesson.

I disagree slightly in the sense that adaptation is (I think) the only way to personalize 'at scale.' so it is not just one of a set of methods to personalize, but the only realistic method to use when going to scale.

How Useful Is Twitter for Learning in Massive Communities? An Analysis of Two MOOCs

How Useful Is Twitter for Learning in Massive Communities? An Analysis of Two MOOCs | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it

"... an analysis of Twitter usage surrounding a German-language MOOC that could indicate future trends in technology-enhanced learning. Our research focuses on the Twitter stream accompanying the course and ask how Twitter is used and for what purposes by the heavy twitter users, by the educators / organisers / guestspeakers in the course and if tweets from “outside” get into to the stream.."

Research from the Michigan Virtual University on a connectivist MOOC

Research from the Michigan Virtual University on a connectivist MOOC | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it

"... brief summary of the report (as always, you should read the report for yourself if my summary gets you interested). Italics are direct quotes from the report.

Goal of the MOOC

How can we get teachers to think more deeply about reinventing education?

MOOC design

facilitators take on the role of connecting people around an idea for the purpose of bettering our understanding of the 
idea. A connectivist-based MOOC draws on the extensive number of participants as well as the existing open repository of content to develop an experience. Participants are both teachers and learners in a process – not a product.

The course was designed around four principles often associated with teaching in the 21st century: connected learning, personalization, collaboration, and reflection.  "

Delving into participants’ profiles and use of social tools in MOOCs

This paper presents an in-depth empirical analysis of a nine-week MOOC. This analysis provides novel results regarding participants’ profiles and use of built-in and external social tools. The results served to detect seven participants’ patterns and conclude that the forum was the social tool preferred to contribute to the MOOC.

The MOOC Moment | Booklets | Inside Higher Ed | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it

"The MOOC Moment" is a collection of articles -- in print-on-demand format -- about massive open online courses, or MOOCs. The articles aren't today's breaking news, but reflect long-term trends and some of the forward-looking thinking of experts on how MOOCs may change higher education. The goal is to provide these materials (both news articles and opinion essays) in one easy-to-read place. Download the booklet here.

This is the first in a series of such compilations that Inside Higher Ed will be releasing in the months ahead, on a range of topics.

In May, Inside Higher Ed's editors conducted a webinar to talk about the issues raised in the booklet's articles and essays, as well as the latest developments involving MOOCs. To view a recording of the webinar, please click here.

You can drag a horse to water. However, most teachers make no effort to upgrade their skills beyond getting the certificate that makes them what they are. Teachers have to be on fire and motivated to present the best version of themselves.
