Google just announced Google Connected Classrooms, which allows classes to take virtual field trips using Google+ Hangouts.

The field trips are live hosted events, but past events are archived and can be viewed later. Teachers can also work together on plans and activities. This is a great resource for teachers and students to be able to learn and explore without ever leaving the classroom.

Although this was done in 2010 and so is probably out of date, the process looks intriguing. Students follow a series of videos and then, in the Docs chat box, give explanations for what is happening. Once this is finished, they do an online quiz using Google Forms. Not original but good to see it in action.

Flipped Classroom Facts and Figures

Flipped Classroom Facts and Figures | 4- 8 Grade Resources to Integrate Technology and Cooperative Learning | Scoop.it
"While the traditional model certainly has its place, a flipped classroom approach that leverages out-of-hours elearning does have its benefits. This model allows for a better teacher and student interaction, improved test scores, and more effective student engagement. What’s more, if a student misses a day of class, they can catch up quickly since they always have access to the course content through the elearning modules. One particular case study of Clintondale High School in Clinton Township, MI shows some pretty impressive results."
