On Your Mark, Get Set, FLIP! Are you thinking about flipping your classroom? There are lots of different, interesting ways to flip a class. One popular, entry-level approach to flipped teaching isto deliver direct instruction (i.e. lectures) outside of class, using pre-recorded videos covering content. Instructors then spend class time on activities that students would normally do at home, such as homework problems. Flipped experts Bergmann and Sams call this the “flipped 101″ approach,
Google Presentation can be used to help students construct knowledge about a topic as they create, inluding video and images. Here is an interactive tutorial designed to demonstrate how to use some of the built in features.
We've heard a lot about Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs) -- the breakout trend of the year -- but it's still a fringe concept feeding what Clayton Christensen calls non-consumption. The real story is how the diverse web of nearly 5,000 institutions (broadly speaking) of higher learning in the U.S. are responding to cost pressure, calls for higher completion rates and better job preparation, and student demands for relevance.
The answer is that they are adopting blended learning strategies at a remarkable rate. Less visible than MOOC-joining press releases, efforts to flip courses, blend departments, and expand online learning options are underway on most campuses. Like K-12 schools, universities have figured out that they can leverage talent with technology, extend their reach, and control their costs
We want to examine at least two or three things. One, are students more engaged—and then we have to figure out how to measure engagement. Second, faculty members are often worried that if we introduce lecture-capture, then students won’t show up. Why show up if I can get to it all later? Can we measure those things? Third, what’s the effect on learning outcomes?
Pinterest has rapidly grown to prominence among image-based social media sites. It’s not hard to see why—the addictive nature of the site results in long visit times and high “conversion” rates. Having shot to the top tier of social media platforms...in this age of exploding “second screen” use, the highly visual Pinterest shows tremendous potential as an auxiliary platform...for education?

The high quality of Camtasia’s motion video screencasts turns the software into a unique product for both pros and newbies. But being so notable for flawless video recording, Camtasia cannot boast of easiness in screen video file saving; it seems to be a bit complicated. Let’s explore step by step how to save videos made by Camtasia....
Flip teaching (or flipped classroom) is a form of blended learning which encompasses any use of technology to leverage the learning in a classroom, so a teacher can spend more time interacting with students instead of lecturing. This is most commonly being done using teacher-created videos that students view outside of class time. It is also known as backwards classroom, reverse instruction, flipping the classroom, and reverse teaching.
The traditional pattern of teaching has been to assign students to read a section of a textbook after-school, which will then be discussed the next day in class. Student would then be assigned an assessment for homework to demonstrate their mastery of the topic. In flip teaching, the student first studies the topic by himself, typically using video lessons created by the instructor or shared by another educator, such as those provided by the Khan Academy. In the classroom, the pupil then tries to apply the knowledge by solving problems and doing practical work. The role of the classroom teacher is then to tutor the student when they become stuck, rather than to impart the initial lesson. This allows time inside the class to be used for additional learning-based activities, including use of differentiated instruction and project-based learning.
Flip teaching allows more hands-on time with the instructor guiding the students, allowing them to assist the students when they are assimilating information and creating new ideas (upper end of Bloom's Taxonomy).
1) They always start with the why. 2) They are malleable and can easily adapt. 3) They embrace change. 4) They share, share, and then share some more. 5) They think win-win-win-win. 6) They are extremely thorough and think two steps ahead. 7) They actively care.
As lecture capture has become more widespread, users have learned how to expand the capabilities and uses of these systems. Simply recording a full lecture live and posting it online isn’t necessarily the most effective way for students to learn, and not the most effective way to get the most out of your lecture capture investment. In fact, the term ‘lecture capture’ is misleading, as this technology can be used for much more than just capturing lectures. This web seminar focused on five innovative ways to use this technology that are employed at Seattle Pacific University.
Do you and your students need a more flexible schedule? Are you worried about missed classes because of the weather? Do your students need to review certain points of your lecture? You might want to give lecture capture a try. Some tips for the beginner
Lecture capture technology is quietly transforming how education is delivered, ‘flipping’ the classroom,but there are many academics who hate it and won’t try it. And it works well in some hands, not so well in others.Simply recording a classroom-delivered lecture may not translate well for online delivery. A well-balanced article on pros and cons.
Screencasts are a cornerstone of many blended learning and flipped classroom strategies. Many academics are put off because traditionally creating a screencast requires them to learn new tools. However, PowerPoint 2010 quietly introduced a feature which allows your slideshow to be saved as a video file. Combine that with the narration feature which has been part of PowerPoint for many years, and you can build a screencast very easily using tools which are familiar.
