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".

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.

Warning: Flipping Your Classroom May Lead to Increased Student Understanding | Teaching Science and Math

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.

Flipped Math Classroom/Professional Development Diary: Day 84 ...

Flipped Math Classroom/Professional Development Diary: Day 84 ... | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

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.

Mr. Kremer's Blog: Using Screencasting

Mr. Kremer's Blog: Using Screencasting | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

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.

A Case for the Flipped Classroom | Elevated Math

A Case for the Flipped Classroom | Elevated Math | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

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.

If you are looking for an elementary iPad lesson in the techchef4u kitchen, it was probably cooked up by the ingenious Chef Carnazzo. This probability iLesson is no different. Carnazzo and her second grade class used the app ScreenChomp (featured in “Screen-casting & Problem-solving 4 the Classroom“) as a culminating apptivity from a week of work on probability (e.g. “TEKS 2.11: Probability and statistics. (C) use data to describe events as more likely or less likely such as drawing a certain color crayon from a bag of seven red crayons and three green crayons.”)

Flipping with Kirch: Student Question: Is your Flipped Classroom ... | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

The purpose of this blog is to have a place to reflect and analyze the use of my "flipped classroom" method of teaching during the 2012 spring semester in my two math classes: Algebra 1 and Math Analysis Honors. My goal is to able to see what is working, what isn't, and what could use improvement as I strive to continue to help my students succeed at their highest level!

(MT)^2 Presentation: What's New In A Flipped Classroom ... | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

(MT)^2 Presentation: Whatever you do with technology, make sure it fits into your educational philosophy. In other words: determine your philosophy first, then find the tools to make it happen. The first half was about the successes and difficulties I’ve had teaching in a reverse class setting. I demonstrated how easy it is to create a screencast using screencast-o-matic, and shared how much my students have liked them. We had a very good discussion on how students of different abilities might respond to a reverse classroom. Downloadable PDF of presentation slides.

Flipped Blog features the Flipped Math Classroom project and the Flipped Professional Development project. Classroom: Decision time - to continue beyond the pilot or not? Today’s blog post (Day 85) is the last one of the 2011 calendar year. When the Flipped Blog continues again on Tuesday, January 3, 2012, the blog post will outline (hopefully) the decision about the next phase and a strategy for implementation.

I previously wrote a post titled, Do Screencasts Have a Place in the Math Classroom? where I pointed out that many teachers seem to like the idea of screencasting but I haven’t really seen it fully implemented in classroom to the extent where students create their own screencasts. I also asked the question Why? Why isn’t screencasting being implemented in the math classroom? Is it too difficult? Too time-consuming? Well today I was able to have some of my questions answered when I worked with a grade 5 teacher that was able to easily create screencasts with her students using tablet technology.

Math class, minus the lecture - In-Forum

Math class, minus the lecture - In-Forum | Screencasting & Flipping for Online Learning | Scoop.it

The concept – known as the flipped classroom or simply the flip – has gained traction in recent years. This year, the Hawley middle school math teacher decided to turn his methods upside down. Now, students watch him lecture in online videos at night and then work through what would be the homework problems in class the next day. Most of his lecture videos are about 15 minutes long. He has students take notes while they watch and said it’s not hard to figure out who isn’t watching. For students who don’t have good Internet access at home, he offers to put the lessons on DVD or portable USB drives or arranges for the students to watch during or after school. Students can also go over the lessons again on classroom computers and iPads. Recording and posting them has been “a huge time investment,” he said, but worth the effort. His students agree.
