Throughout this summer article series, we’ve addressed some of the most frequently asked questions about the flipped classroom in higher education. We’ve shared ideas for student motivation, student engagement, time management, student resistance, and large classes. Since this is the final article in the series, I reviewed my notes and the findings from the Faculty Focus reader survey on flipped classroom trends (2015), and there’s one more topic we need to address: creativity.
This past Spring, I saw something new. I visited Kirk Humphries’ 7th grade Flipped Math class in Deerfield, Illinois and I was blown away with how he started his flipped class. Most flipped class teachers start out class by either answering questions from the flipped video, or by having students do a short quiz. Kirk did neither of those. Instead, Kirk asked students to summarize the video. He sat in the back of the class and let the students take charge.
Flipped classrooms are often met with some skepticism by parents. It seems like a new way to for students to learn and they have many questions. Jon created a short video for parents explaining explaining what the flipped class is and five reasons they should be thrilled their child is in a flipped class.
This post continues the series by providing an overview of The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture using mobile devices. Each phase of the model has suggestions and ideas for mobile-driven learning activities which can be implemented on most devices. This supports Bring Your Own Devices programs and increases the chances students will use similar learning activities on their own devices outside of the classroom environment.
Screencasts—digital video recordings of computer screens, often with audio narration or added video of an instructor—have been a staple for teaching developers and software users. But many screencasts are ineffective or even counterproductive because of poor planning and execution. Here are eight common faults of screencasts, with ways to improve the quality of your productions.
Students in our classrooms are highly variable in the way they learn and interact in learning environments. Many of our students love the power of images and video to learn. With this in mind, we will investigate the question: How do you make your pictures speak a thousand words? Every classroom contains students who need a little extra help, have frequently asked questions, or need the ability to rewind and listen to content again. Screencasting offers a great solution to address these questions or offer brief tutorials for students.
Flipped learning or Flipped classroom or is a methodology, an approach to learning in which technology is employed to reverse the traditional role of classroom time. If in the past, classroom time is spent at lecturing to students , now in a flipped model, this time is utilized to encourage individualized learning and provide one-on-one help to students, and also to improve student-teacher interaction. While the instructional or teachable content is still available in class, however this content is mainly designed in such a way to be accessed outside class which is a great way for struggling students to learn at their own pace.
Today we spent sometime sifting through our Flipped Classroom section here in EdTech and mLearning and curated for you the resources below. These include tools, apps, video guides, tutorials and illustrative visuals to help teachers learn about and integrate the flipped learning concept in their instruction.
One of the best ways to help people learn how to use an app or complete a workflow process on an iPad is to show them. Every year schools have workshops dedicated to showing teachers how to use their iPads. The trouble comes after the workshop is over and teachers have forgotten a key step or two. The solution to this problem is to create screencast videos that teachers can refer to throughout the school year. There are a couple of ways that you can create a screencast video of your iPad’s screen.
A great option for recording Google Hangouts. A very easy to use option, ScreenCastle gives you the ability to record your entire screen, or to change the size of the recording box by pixel dimensions. An unlimited service, ScreenCastle will tape from the moment you hit record until you're ready to stop. You then have to upload your recording to the site. There are various sharing options open to you — a direct link to watch the video, an embed code to put it on your site, and a direct link to the FLV file. ScreenCastle also auto-generates a preview image of your footage
A district built a learning network for teachers and saw PD participation increase 600 percent. Technology News & Innovation in K-12 Education. With MLN (Montour Learning Network), the district has created the same sort of learning environment for its teachers that it delivers to its students. Flipping our professional development gives our valued educators the freedom to learn on their own time and review material as often as they need. Having so much information at their fingertips also makes their interactions with school and district leaders more productive. Now that their PD has moved into the 21st century, all of our teachers are better prepared to pass along those 21st-century skills to their students.
Whenever I train teachers on the Flipped Classroom Model, I’m always asked the same questions. “What do you do if your students do not complete the homework?” or “What do you do if students do not have access to the internet and/or devices at home?” These are valid questions and concerns. Homework completion and online access must be a consideration when teachers decide whether or not the flipped classroom is a viable model.
