Flipping with Kirch: "I'm sick of the videos"

Flipping with Kirch: "I'm sick of the videos" | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

 How do you respond to "I'm sick of the videos" in your #flipclass?

Have you heard your students say this?

I had a conversation with one of my students this week and that was one of his comments. I tried to probe and ask why so I could get some more context and reasons behind it to find out WHY he was "sick of the videos".

Reverse and Improve Your Instruction with Screencasts: Lecture at home, practice at school

Reverse and Improve Your Instruction with Screencasts: Lecture at home, practice at school | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

I’m a staunch advocate for getting technology out of the hands of teachers and into the hands of kids.

I still think it’s a good idea to have students create screecasts. But Ramsey explained how his own screencasts completely transformed his daily classroom. He showed that, by creating screencasts yourself, teachers can become much more effective and make their lives easier simultaneously. Best of all, everything he does in regards to screencasting is backed up by brain research.

The University of Wisconsin’s Stout School of Education publishes a great Tech Tips newsletter. The last few issues of this newsletter have been packed with resources focused on topics near and dear to us here at EmergingEdTech, and we strongly recommend signing up for this free publication. I spent a good deal of time reading and appreciating the resources shared in a recent Tech Tips newsletter focused on the concept of “the flipped classroom”. Below I have shared several of the articles listed in the newsletter, along with a few more that I searched out, and I’ve provided a little insight into each of them.

Commons Sense | Improving my vodcasts?

Commons Sense | Improving my vodcasts? | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

For those that follow my blog over this past academic year I have been flipping my IB diploma Physics class. In a previous blog (I Launch myself onto You tube) I shared my initial vodcasts and the related reflection. So now a few months further down the line I am returning to further reflect on the vodcasts that I produce. With respect to my own class progression my first semester has been completed and the average class results are higher then in previous years as are those of the best students but this is a small and talented cohort some I don’t want to over analyse those facts. For now my flipped classroom journey goes on.

Students flipping over new teaching style | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

Not many courses in high school match the challenge that Advanced Placement Chemistry offers students. For teachers, finding enough time to teach the subject’s abundance of content is perhaps just as big of a challenge. Jill Christman, a chemistry teacher at Canyon Del Oro High School, has worked in collaboration with Salpointe High School’s Brenda Wolpa to find a solution to both of these issues. The solution is known as flipping.

New twist in education: 'Flipped classroom' makes homework an in-school effort, puts lectures online

New twist in education: 'Flipped classroom' makes homework an in-school effort, puts lectures online | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

One appeal of online lectures is that students can watch them repeatedly if they are confused about a topic. Plus, once they are posted, they remain online so students can use them to review for tests. The online lectures also make lessons portable, with students being able to watch them anywhere from their smartphones or electronic tablets. They also are useful for students who miss class due to illness or school or athletic activities.

My flipped classroom experiment summarized « Language Tune Ups

My flipped classroom experiment summarized « Language Tune Ups | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

I tried the flipped classroom model this semester and struggled at times with making it work. But at the end of the semester, I feel it was worth it. The biggest change for me was having activities ready which focused on the areas we were working on in an appropriate way. Another advantage I found with the flipped classroom model was student interaction. I spent a lot of time walking around the classroom and could help students with the difficulties they were having at the moment. From my perspective, the class worked because we were on task, learned to make the tasks more appropriate and requiring deeper processing, and student involvement increased.

Another exciting update from Delia Bush. The last week of break brought two interesting and exciting events to my flipped classroom. First, I found out that I received $1,100 from our Kenowa Hills Education Foundation to help purchase technology for my flipped classroom. The second bit of excitement happened when a reporter from our local newspaper paid a visit to my classroom because he wanted to know more about the flipped classroom.

My Flipped Classroom: The "Talk" Blog post by Delia Bush

My Flipped Classroom: The "Talk" Blog post by Delia Bush | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

After my meeting with my principal, I came into class on Monday and had "the talk" with the students. Our conversation Monday focused on the how I see things running right now, and how I envision them in my happy little dream world. I also was very honest about what my goal is for our math class. We also talked about how I envision the class running, when it is running perfectly. I have them for about an hour, so in that hour I want to spend:
* 10 minutes going over questions from the video from the previous night
* 15 - 45 minutes of independent work (they work on the old homework, I walk around helping kids)
* 15 - 30 minutes of extensions

My comment: This is a great blog to follow as the author, Delia Bush, shares her learning and progress with flipping her classroom.

A Principal's Reflections: The Truly Flipped Classroom-Principal Eric Sheninger

A Principal's Reflections: The Truly Flipped Classroom-Principal Eric Sheninger | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

The flipped classroom is an excellent first step in making students’ in-class experiences more active, more student-centered, and more meaningful. Combining the best aspects of the flipped classroom with the power of 1:1 technology would allow for an even more radical reshaping of the classroom. School could become a place where students can learn at their own individual paces, can become active content creators instead of solely passive content recipients, and can learn in an environment that they “own” which adjusts rapidly to meet their learning needs and interests. Author:Mark Pullen, 1:1 classroom teacher, on behalf of Worth Ave. Group.

Learning (by) Teaching: Flipped classroom and thatquiz

Learning (by) Teaching: Flipped classroom and thatquiz | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

My lovely class of math students is doing great work in class, but very little at home. So now's as good a time as any to experiment with something new (flipped classroom) and something old (thatquiz). in class, students may ask whatever questions they have about the topics covered in homework, but primarily class time is devoted to practice with exam questions, going over worked solutions, and laying the stage for the coming topics. Today, for example, we used basic trig in a guided investigation leading up to and including sine rule and trig area formula. I'm thinking hard about how best to use class time now that I can focus on exercises and problem solving. It's important for me to retain a constructionist approach at least in setting the stage for the new material which the students will meet in lecture-style videos in their homeworks. This is super exciting. More updates will follow.

The flipped classroom is raising achievement and decreasing failures - Mind Dump | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

Clintondale (MI) High School applied the flipped model gradually, beginning with just a couple of classes in the 2009-2010 school year. In the fall of 2010, all freshmen classes were taught using this model. After seeing an increase in student achievement and a decrease in the failure rate, administrators decided to flip the entire school this year. via http://www.districtadministration.com/article/flipped-class-method-gaining-ground

On Tuesday, December 20, 2011, technology integration specialists Wayne Feller, Kristin Daniels, and Tom Brandt (Osseo Public Schools) led a presentation and workshop session at the monthly TIES Key Instructional Contact (KIC) meeting. The structure of this presentation/workshop was divided into four sections. Each of the four sections dealt with a thematic area of concern with flipped classrooms. We introduced each of the four sections by providing information about our own context of experience, then invited all of the participants to have their own discussions in small groups on the same topic. Each of the groups documented their discussion on a Google doc which was shared by all.

I've been experimenting with having my students create screencasts using the ScreenChomp app on ipads. I've been overall pleased with the way that my students have produced these screencasts and think that it is providing some powerful metacognition. Includes example of a 7th grader's screencast on basic geometric figures and 8th grader's screencast on using proportions to solve.
