My Flipped Classroom: Flipping...from the perspective of a student teacher

My Flipped Classroom: Flipping...from the perspective of a student teacher | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

I have gained confidence in my abilities to teach math because I was able to plan, prepare and deliver math lessons without the pressure of conducting whole group instruction which often is interrupted due to behavioral issues. I have gained a wealth of knowledge about all of the technology available out there, and furthermore, I have seen how the use of this technology can enhance and impact learning. Finally, I have gained an appreciation for teachers who “go out on a limb” and try something innovative. Mrs. Bush took a risk and with hard work, dedication, and courage, transformed her classroom into a place where students can learn math in ways they never have before.

Flipping the Classroom Requires More Than Video

Flipping the Classroom Requires More Than Video | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

Ultimately, success with a flipped class is a combination of understanding the pedagogical goals and using the technology and method to support them. Evansville (Indiana) science teacher Brian Bennett describes the Flipped Classroom as an ideology, not a methodology:

Video itself will not help kids achieve more in your class. The flipped classroom is about making connections with learners and differentiating your instruction. If videos are a part of that multi-faceted plan, great. If they are not, still great.

Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today

Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

It’s all about engagement. I’ve heard things like a child’s attention span, in minutes, is equal to their age in years. That’s so not true. If children are engaged in something, they’ll spend hours on it. We have a 6-year-old grandchild who will spend hours working on Legos or Tinkertoys because she’s got something in her mind that she wants to build, and she’ll do it. If children aren’t paying attention, it’s not because of a decreased attention span—it’s because they aren’t given tasks that honor their dominant ways of learning.

Changing your behaviour to develop a personal/professional learning network will be essential to thrive in an era of perpetual change.  The old focus on Continuing Professional Development is no longer fit for purpose and this video delivers  advice on creating a network  based on research

CedricBorzee's curator insight, January 22, 2014 5:01 PM

The author points 3 criteria for Learning Networks to emerge :

- user ownership

- user independence

- user self-determination 

 

Then 3 "values" - that could also be defined as "Attitudes"
- Trust 

- Openness

- Integrity

 

Last part is on how to "nurture" the right climate for Learning Networks to thrive.

The Flipped Classroom - Instructional Module

The Flipped Classroom - Instructional Module | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | 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.

My Flipped Classroom: Study Hall...Why didn't I think of this before? | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
Getting the students more involved in retesting Study Hall...Why didn't I think of this before? I put a sign up sheet on my classroom wall with different dates and times for studying (either before school/2nd recess or lunch recess). Then the students who didn't pass were required to sign up for a time slot. I then opened up the "tutoring" job to the rest of the class. If a student got 90% or better on their test, they had the opportunity to tutor a classmate.

"If you are planning to use Google Hangout with your students then here is a very good video clip to help you learn more about the benefits of using this platform in your teaching. Though relatively new, Google Hangouts has been increasingly gaining in popularity particularly among educators and social media users.

 


"Google Hangout  has several distinctive features that sets it apart from the crowd. First, it is integrated with other Google services like Youtube, Gmail, and Calendar and if you have a Google account then you automatically have a Google Plus account. Google Hangouts can also be recorded or streamlined live on YouTube using a generated link. The image and audio quality of hangouts are, I believe, better than the ones in Skype. Google Hangouts also supports a wide variety of third party apps that can be used to perform different tasks like adding emoticons, doodles, chat and many more."
