Corlita's Way - #FlippedClassrooms and Turbulent Homes

Corlita's Way - #FlippedClassrooms and Turbulent Homes | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it
In urban centers, children not only face poverty, but also high mobility between campuses in a school district, or school districts within their "home" city. Worse, turbulent home environments make learning at home an unstable proposition. Flipped classroom boast great results, but what about the poor, the homeless, who fight for a bite to eat in the night, trying to survive the chaos of parents unable to keep themselves, much less their children, in a stable environment conducive to learning?

Real life, as they say, is different. So in changing gears for this new year, step two is "rejecting the flipped classroom." Let me begin here: Any pedagogical design which relies, in essential terms, on homework is a problem for me, and many others. Thought-provoking article that raises important considerations when deciding whether to use the flipped classroom model...

The Innovative Educator: Five Reasons I'm Not Flipping Over The Flipped Classroom

The Innovative Educator: Five Reasons I'm Not Flipping Over The Flipped Classroom | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

If you've read my thoughts about the Flipped Classroom in USA Today, you probably are either in agreement with my caution over the excitement around the flipped classroom made popular by Sal Kahn or you are a flipped classroom advocate who wants to convince me and other innovative educators that flipping is for everyone.

While I certainly see benefits in flipping instruction as I wrote about earlier this year, there are also reasons to move ahead with caution.

Flipped Classroom Full Picture: An Example Lesson-Jackie Gerstein

Flipped Classroom Full Picture: An Example Lesson-Jackie Gerstein | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

As I describe in The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture, I believe, as Chris Dede does, that the problem with the flipped classroom is that the major focus is on the didactic presentation of information, that it is still at the center of the learning experience. The flipped classroom, given that it is currently getting so much press, provides an opportunity to change the paradigm of learning, whereby learning–by-doing, the experiences along with the understanding and application of those experiences become core to the learning process.

The following lesson describes a type of flipped classroom. This lesson did not center around the content media, in this case the Slideshare, but on the students’ personal experiences, interactions with other students, and acquisition of tangible life skills.

Observations on flipping the classroom -ICT in Education-Terry Freedman

Observations on flipping the classroom -ICT in Education-Terry Freedman | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

One of the more unfortunate buzzwords to appear in online education circles and the press is “flipping the classroom”. This means that instead of lecturing students in lessons in school, the teacher records the lecture as a video and uploads it to YouTube – or recommends other people’s videos to the students. The students watch the videos for homework, freeing up the lesson for interactivity, project work and so on... In my opinion, the most brilliant thing about flipping the classroom is how well it illustrates that often when you examine in detail a so-called great idea you find that it’s not so wonderful after all.

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.
