Students today live in a wired world. Educators strive to assure high school and post-secondary success for each student. We think it's a pretty good idea to recognize where students live outside the classroom and provide learning experiences that are real, relevant and engaging during the school day and beyond. This means creating innovative learning environments built around a culture that empowers, curricula that engages, and technology that enables.
In an average day, students interact and access data through various technologies -- YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, texting -- unless they encounter blocked sites due to district policies. Students' private and public lives blur and blend together. In today's educational world, it's important to bridge the gap between students' social and learning lives.
Dr. James Brown of New Technology High School in Napa, California is an expert when it comes to Digital Media. He teaches Digital Media Design and Criticism and is a trainer and fellow at the Center for Media Literacy. He has taught at New Tech High since 2008 and has been teaching digital arts since 2005.
Although Dr. Brown has taught "technology immersed education" for many years, this year he is teaching a "flipped classroom" -- a natural step for him in a school and classroom that is already 1:1 technology. (New Tech Network schools have included "blended learning" since the first school was established in 1996.) As Dr. Brown explains, "A flipped classroom is an ideology rather than a technique." He adds, "It's a form of blended learning -- which encompasses any use of Internet technology to augment classroom learning so that a teacher can spend more time actually interacting with students rather than lecturing."
