The Flipped Classroom Model: A Full Picture

The Flipped Classroom Model: A Full Picture | Zentrum für multimediales Lehren und Lernen (LLZ) | Scoop.it
Due to Khan Academy's popularity, the idea of the flipped classroom has gained press and credibility within education circles. Briefly, the Flipped Classroom as described by Jonathan Martin is: Flip your instruction so that students watch and listen to your lectures… for homework, and then use your precious class-time for what previously, often, was done…

"The advantage of the flipped classroom is that the content, often the theoretical/lecture-based component of the lesson, becomes more easily accessed and controlled by the learner."

Standardized Achievement Tests: What Are They Good For?

Standardized Achievement Tests: What Are They Good For? | Zentrum für multimediales Lehren und Lernen (LLZ) | Scoop.it

 

" (...) It’s well known that good standardized test takers also tend to have high cognitive ability. That’s not a shocker.

But until recently, very little research has looked at the effect of improving standardized achievement test performance. This is obviously a really important question, since we are so steeped in a standardized testing culture. Wouldn’t it be nice to know what all this obsessive teaching to the test is really good for? (...)"

Today we have students taking more and more standardized tests. This post shares information on "standardized test scores (Math and English language arts) and cognitive ability (working memory, processing speed, and abstract reasoning)" from ~1400 students 8th grade students in Boston (schools include traditional, exam and charter). 

The question I would ask is why are we focused on standardized tests? Is this the primary way we should assess our students? Do standardized tests become critical thinkers, creative thinkers? This list could go on.

The information in this post may surprise you and there are links to the original paper and supplement.

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, February 18, 2014 5:11 AM

 I am concerned about the massive growth of standardized test as a tool to motivate learning and improvement in education. These also even seem to be an intimidation tool used against staff and school systems these days far more than an formative evaluation tool. The best evaluations for both formative and summative are by far real life performance based and the real process is always iterative and ongoing. That is everything in learning is iterative with exception of life and death training that must be passed by a 100% success standard and then maintained at that.

 

Are standardized test a distraction from the sometimes messy nature of real learning and curiosity which causes people to want to learn something? Are we taking the valuable lessons of trial and error corrections totally out of the learning equation for fear of failure when everything hangs on a standardized test passing score?

Pedagogy - 'Disillusioned' teachers bored by chalk and talk

Pedagogy - 'Disillusioned' teachers bored by chalk and talk | Zentrum für multimediales Lehren und Lernen (LLZ) | Scoop.it
Traditional methods do not suit modern classrooms, expert says

 

Professor Fullan identifies them as the root of the problem. But he stresses that the new methods of teaching he describes take teachers beyond being “mere facilitators” to becoming “partners” who recognise the “importance of proactively learning alongside students”.

 

“Through such partnering, teachers not only become learners themselves, but also begin to see learning through the eyes of their students,” he writes.

 

“This ‘visibility’ is essential if teachers are to continuously challenge students to reach for the next step.”

 

The report acknowledges that many of the teaching strategies it describes have been “advocated for at least a century by the likes of Dewey, Piaget, Montessori and Vygotsky”.

 

But it says that today’s conditions means they are now being widely embraced: “

 

Through the combination of the ‘push’ of traditional schooling that fails to keep students or teachers engaged, and the ‘pull’ of new pedagogies unleashed through digital access, the transformation of education systems on a broad scale becomes not only possible, but inevitable.”

Today the words personalized learning are often heard when discussing education. How is personalized learning different from individualized learning? Is one "better" than the other?

David Warlick provides a great table that compares the two in the following areas:

* Definition

* Literacy becomes a ...

* Teacher's role

* Student role

* Standards

* Outcomes

* It's essence

The final question he raises is "What do you think?" If you have ideas about this please share them in the comment section...and take a minute to look at the table in the original post.

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers | Zentrum für multimediales Lehren und Lernen (LLZ) | Scoop.it

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'
Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"

Today, no longer is having a high school diploma is enough to land a good job and support family. College is key today, but finding the funds to pay for it can be tricky. Brick and mortar institutions cost a fortune, and most have to work while going to school. But for those who can't juggle both, online learning can be a great option.

 

We know what that you may think this avenue is for slackers, but have a look at our infographic below, and your opinion may just change.

This infographic looks at both technology and education over the last four decades. Are there connections between these two themes? Take a look and see what was going on in the 1980's, 1990's, 2000's and today. This infographic provides geat depth in these two areas, noting that the:

* 1980's was the Age of Processing, the beginning of the Digital Age and a time when tech was a peripheral tool.

* 1990's was Hardware 2.0, the World Wide Web came into being and a time when tech begins to supplement.

* 2000's was the move to connectivity, to an age of sharing and portable devices and technology supplements instruction.

* Today - Perhaps this is yet to be written but a few years in we see multifunctional devices, personalization and technology as an integrated tool.

What would your students think of this chart? What conversation might arise in faculty meeting or with sharing this with the PTO or other stakeholders in your community? It does provide food for thought.

Characteristics of good elearning

Characteristics of good elearning | Zentrum für multimediales Lehren und Lernen (LLZ) | Scoop.it

Thought-provoking


It's all very well having fun while using elearning materials. ===> But what you're trying to do is get people to change the way they behave or think. <===

 

For that to occur, ===> good elearning will cause people to reflect on what they currently do/think and start working the way the elearning is suggesting. <===

 

You actually want to bring in some element of "cognitive dissonance" - putting people in a state where they may end up trying to hold two conflicting ideas.


Often, this brings out some emotion.

 

===> But, even if people disagree with what the content is saying, at least you've stimulated a reaction. That's better than no reaction at all. <===
