How to Build an Active Learning Program -- Campus Technology

How to Build an Active Learning Program -- Campus Technology | Technology innovators in the classroom | Scoop.it
“ Rather than focus on the technology itself, Sparrow advised, ask, "What do you want students to be able to do at the end of this course? What challenges are you currently facing? If we start with technology as the solution, we are going to get to the wrong answer," she said. "Start with what students need to know and do first, and how technology might fit. Sometimes it is as simple as a whiteboard or an overhead projector. If that is the technology that gets students to talk and share the kinds of problems they are solving in their class and teach those to other students, then that is the appropriate technology."”

GwynethJones's curator insight, February 1, 2015 2:01 PM

This is one of the BEST videos to explain Flipping the Classroom!


But I have a sort of controversial or CONTRARY view on it.


Create the video, assign the video to be watched out of class, but then show the video before the lesson. WHY, you may ask? Doesn't that negate the whole thing? No! The Digital Divide in my school is real.

Some of my kiddos don't have smart devices, reliable Internet access at home or a parent who is avail at night to drive them to the public library (some of my parents work evenings) If you ask them if they can watch the video they will fib to maintain their pride that they can, but some can not. It's not fair  for even ONE KID to be made to feel left out or marginalized - Also, some kids might just not watch the video before the lesson (I know, shocker!) SO play the gosh darn video before the lesson - add another day to the lesson if you have to!


I also have my PAC computers in the library that is avail for this when it comes up. What do you think?

The short video is a powerful flipped learning tool. This video visually and audibly explains how to flip a classroom. Don't limit this though to just the classroom....it's flipped learning, wherever you and the students are.
