The Flipped Classroom - Instructional Module

The Flipped Classroom - Instructional Module | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

For years, students have grown accustomed to traditional methods of instruction where teachers fill the role of "sage on the stage," imparting their wisdom during allotted class time then sending work home to reinforce learned concepts with little or no added support. As a result, students exist as mere listeners on the receiving end of a one-way communication process that does little to promote social interaction or encourage critical thought. In an effort to "flip" this trend of passive learning, teachers are now utilizing technology to implement a blended learning method that frees up class time for collaborative activities by shifting lectures out of the classroom and on to the internet. This method, known as a "flipped" classroom, combines the benefits of direct instruction and active learning to engage students in the educational process.

"The Flipped Classroom is an intentional shift of content which in turn helps move students
back to the center of learning rather than the products of schooling."

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.

by Greg Green, Special to CNN Editor’s note:  Greg Green is the principal at Clintondale High School in Clinton Township, Michigan. I’m a principal at Clintondale High, a financially challenged school near Detroit. How do you get your staff on board with change you want to implement, but no one else has ever tried it on a mass scale? How do you get your students excited about learning when they’ve never shown much interest before? You flip it.

GIS Education Community Blog : Flipping It: An Instructional Alternative for GIS in the Class

GIS Education Community Blog : Flipping It: An Instructional Alternative for GIS in the Class | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it
A few years ago a couple of Colorado chemistry teachers realized that they were spending incredible amounts of time preparing make-up work and documenting the day’s instruction for students who were out sick. To help curb this time problem, they began recording their instruction and placing instructional video (e.g. narrated PowerPoint), class exercises, interactive simulations and other materials online every day – as a regular component of their instructional preparations. What they found was that not only did the resources help the absent student but also students who attended class leveraged the online materials as an opportunity to review. With the advent of a variety of web GIS tools (like ArcGIS Online) and an explosion of existing instructional video on basic GIS activities (YouTube or ArcGIS videos), the flipped classroom may be a great approach.

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 Teaching - Southern Pines Pilot

New Teaching - Southern Pines Pilot | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

New TeachingSouthern Pines Pilot-In a "flipped" classroom, traditional lecture is removed from class and instead, the teacher uses video lectures that can be viewed by students at any time and as many times as needed...Let's allow a capable and willing teacher who has "flipped" his or her classroom to increase class sizes and teach more classes. The solution to the education problem becomes fewer core area teachers, each with more students - re-allocating the salaries of a few traditional teaching positions toward the teachers who are willing and able to serve additional students. If the classroom can be radically altered for more personalized instruction and success with larger class sizes, the benefit to teachers should be increased pay.

Flip the Classroom – Screencasting Resources | Mr. Walker's Technology Blog

Flip the Classroom – Screencasting Resources | Mr. Walker's Technology Blog | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

Are you considering the implementation of the flipped classroom? The process of flipping the classroom involves a paradigm shift in what constitutes class work and homework. When a classroom is flipped the students receive direct instruction at home typically through the use of multimedia. When students return to class the next day they are able to apply what they have learned by working on questions, problems, or tasks that would typically be assigned for homework. There are a number of instructional benefits to this process. You can read an earlier blog posting I have written on the topic here or take a look at my wiki page on the topic. My observations have been very positive. I would like to share some of the tools that are available to create multimedia files that can be used to provide direct instruction online.

Scot Koski's ED 483 blog: Advantages vs. Moral Issues: The Flipped ...

One way of using technology in the classroom is the idea of flipping the classroom, or having students observe a video online which presents educational material for a topic. This is done prior to discussing the material in class, so that once students have viewed the material online, they can shortly discuss in class, then either do “homework problems” or activities to reinforce what they have learned (Musallam, 2011). There are many benefits as well as drawbacks of flipping the classroom.

All Things Education: In Defense of Flipping the Classroom & the Lecture

All Things Education: In Defense of Flipping the Classroom & the Lecture | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it
There's been a lot lately about "flipping the classroom," a teaching method where students are to view a lecture at home --ostensibly on-line--of their teacher presenting key concepts while saving doing harder and trickier homework-type assignments for in class. This idea appeals to me and I've been somewhat surprised that so many other education peeps out there whom I follow don't seem as enamored. Not only are they disparaging of the idea, but they seem to think "lecture" is synonymous with torture.

My Flipped Classroom: Flipping...from the perspective of a student teacher | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

I have gained confidence in my abilities to teach math because I was able to plan, prepare and deliver math lessons without the pressure of conducting whole group instruction which often is interrupted due to behavioral issues. I have gained a wealth of knowledge about all of the technology available out there, and furthermore, I have seen how the use of this technology can enhance and impact learning. Finally, I have gained an appreciation for teachers who “go out on a limb” and try something innovative. Mrs. Bush took a risk and with hard work, dedication, and courage, transformed her classroom into a place where students can learn math in ways they never have before.

The Flipped Class Revealed - THE DAILY RIFF

The Flipped Class Revealed - THE DAILY RIFF | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

The idea of the flipped class started with lecture and direct instruction being done at home  via video and/or audio, and what was once considered homework is done in class. So, the order of the "lecture" and "homework" components of the class are, well -- flipped.

Now, it is becoming much more than that.

The main reason, maybe the only reason, to flip a class is to provide more class time for learning and that is the major shift that we are seeing as the flip gains popularity across content areas. Other than that, a good flipped class should be like any other in which good teaching and effective learning take place. Flipping the class is not the end-all solution to finding the "best use" of class time, but it does allow for varied forms of instruction.

Warning: Flipping Your Classroom May Lead to Increased Student Understanding | Teaching Science and Math | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

Flipping a classroom is not a teaching technique, it is more in line with a philosophy or way of teaching. It involves using technology as a tool, not the main focus, for helping students increase their understanding of science or math concepts. Why use this strategy? Because in far too many cases the status quo is not working.

The Flipped Classroom: Answering Obama’s Call For Creativity In Education

The Flipped Classroom: Answering Obama’s Call For Creativity In Education | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it
At Michigan’s Clintondale High School, resources are scarce and failure rates are high. But a new initiative--watch videos of lectures at home, work on problems in class--has achieved jaw-dropping results. It’s the kind of educational innovation that could truly reshape how our children learn. The “flipped classroom” at Clintondale might just be a way to implement President Obama’s call in his recent State of the Union Address to “grant schools flexibility to teach with creativity and passion; to stop teaching to the test.”

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

Variations of flipped classrooms are as many as there are teachers. Brian Bennett writes in his blog post, “The flipped class is an ideology, not a methodology.” He stresses that it is not defined by the use of videos. He has moved away from videos now that he has more time for “engaging activities and labs.” The flipped classroom is all about “making connections with learners and differentiating your instruction.” Therefore, a teacher can have such a classroom as long as the needs of all learners are being met. Bennett is commended for meeting the needs of his learners. However, for a classroom to truly be “flipped,” prepared instruction must continue at home, not just in the classroom.
