Free Technology for Teachers: Putting Your Google Jockeys to Work

Free Technology for Teachers: Putting Your Google Jockeys to Work | My K-12 Ed Tech Edition | Scoop.it

I first discovered the term Google Jockey when I read Curtis Bonk's The World Is Open: How Web Technology Is Revolutionizing Education. In The World Is Open I came across the idea for having a "Google Jockey" in my classroom. The idea is that you have one or two students in the room who are responsible for looking up terms or phrases that come up during the course of classroom discussion. Combining the use of a back channel along with a Google Jockey could become a good avenue for drilling deeper into the content of the day's lesson.

So. You've tried flipping your class, and it didn't go well. Or you've heard about flipping and want to try the approach, but you're pretty sure it won't work in your school. Don't give up yet -- with a slight twist, flipping might be possible for you after all.

Deb Gardner's insight:

Excellent article that includes a brief video explanation. Although the demo is in a Spanish classroom, it could be applied to almost any content area.
