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 Class: Shedding light on the confusion, critique, and hype - THE DAILY RIFF

The Flipped Class: Shedding light on the confusion, critique, and hype - THE DAILY RIFF | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

The term "Flipped Classroom" is being thrown around a lot lately in both positive and negative light. We are delighted to know that we've lit a fire among educators. The term is a bit ambiguous and does not fully do justice to all that is being done under the guise of the Flipped Classroom. I hope to shed some light on the confusion, critique, and hype.

Flipped Classroom Defined

Flipped Classroom Defined | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

The flipped classroom provides avenues for teachers to become facilitators of learning and move away from the sage on a stage approach to teaching. The foundational concepts of instructors guiding students or facilitating their progress are based on the idea that the instructor is no longer at the center of the interaction and application of knowledge. The instructor remains available to students as a facilitator of resources, a resource who should frequently check students for understanding for their learning. The teacher, when necessary will provide guidance in how to process the information for a unit of study. The facilitators role in a flipped classroom changes dramatically in that the teacher becomes a source to students in how to better use the resources, process information and how to apply the core concepts to real life situations.

Two teachers. Two Presidential Awards for Excellence in Teaching Science and Math. Aaron Sams and Jonathan Bergmann have flipped their classrooms.

Now they watch lecture videos at home and do homework and hands-on lab activities in class—improving the learning experience for everyone! Great video intro to flipping the classroom.

The Flipped Classroom: Using class time for learning, not presentation

The Flipped Classroom: Using class time for learning, not presentation | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it
I write a lot about teachniques (just coined that phrase, how do you like it?) to get students more interactive and engaged in your courses. But a lot of teachers aren’t sure how to take the time to do those activities given how much content there is to cover. As you might be aware, one method that’s been developed to address the time issue is to take a lot of the content “coverage” out of class, leaving classtime for working on a deeper understanding of that content. This is called the “Flipped classroom,” since the lecture is moved to homework, and homework and other ways to practice the content is moved to classtime.

A Principal's Reflections: The Flipped Classroom Explained

A Principal's Reflections: The Flipped Classroom Explained | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

There has been a great deal of information lately on the World Wide Web and in the media on the flipped classroom approach. I still get the sense that many educators are unsure of what this actually means and entails. I myself have done quite a bit of research as of late to gain a better understanding. So what are your thoughts on this topic? I would love to hear from those educators that have found success with this. Will schools and educators find value in this approach and begin to flip their classrooms? Or will the fear and anxiety associated with standardized testing and new teacher accountability reforms stop this phenomenon from taking off?

One example, I think, is the flipped classroom model. The “Flipped Classroom” is a term first used by Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams some time ago but has started to gain traction in 2011, following Sal Khan's TED talk. In my own experience (I started flipping my classes in 2005 – well before the term was coined), it also makes time in class for more discussions, debates, role-plays, modelling activities, experiments and group work. Each of these requires people to be together. A lecture does not. It’s not just about doing more online. It’s about considering what works best online, and what works best face-to-face and curating each of these to make our precious class time more valuable.

The Flipped Classroom Revisited | EdReach

The Flipped Classroom Revisited | EdReach | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

Lately, there has been a lot of interest and controversy about the flipped classroom. For those of you who are still trying to get your mind around what the flipped classroom is, most people are currently defining the flipped classroom as a class in which the lectures are watched at home and the class time is used to work on what used to be assigned as homework. But this version of the flipped class, is only one iteration of the flipped classroom. To understand more, I would encourage you to read Aaron Sam’s post: “There is No Such Thing as THE Flipped Class.” His main point is that the flipped class is not a narrow methodology, but rather a philosophy, which has many different applications and modifications. (EdReach Note: This is a guest post from Jon Bergmann. Jon is a pioneer of the flipped classroom movement.)

Eventually, the rapid and continuing developments in the areas of lecture capture technologies, OER, digital textbooks, search, social network tools and mobile devices will change students’ learning experience within and outside the classroom. The flipped approach provides a good example of how technology might be used to disrupt the existing education model and traditional education practice. However, to make real change for a better education system we need also to ‘flip thinking’ at all levels of education sector, from practice, method to process and business models, in order to take full advantage of these disruptive technologies in institutions .
