10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom

10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom | The virtual classroom | Scoop.it
The main goal of a flipped classroom is to enhance student learning and achievement by reversing the traditional model of a classroom, focusing class time on student understanding rather than on lecture. To accomplish this, teachers post short video lectures online for students to view at home prior to the next class session. This allows class time to be devoted to expanding on and mastering the material through collaborative learning exercises, projects, and discussions.

Aula Inversa: Necesario analizar las experiencias
Carlos Fosca's curator insight, August 5, 2017 5:04 PM

No todo es ventajoso en el flipped classroom, pues al ser resignificado por el uso de la tecnología, este puede generar una inequidad entre los estudiantes que tienen o nó acceso a ella. Por otro lado, representa mucho más trabajo para el docente. Sin embargo, los aspectos positivos de aplicar el flipped classroom son mucho mayores que sus inconvenientes.

Hi there! FYI - the first tool listed there is the YouTube editor, but YouTube retired the editor a few weeks ago.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, May 29, 2017 8:51 AM
This week I had the chance to lead a virtual reality lesson with a group of second graders. It was absolutely amazing to see the students spinning around and looking side-to-side as they explored the top of a mountain and the bottom of the ocean. On this 360 Thursday I wanted to share some of my absolute favorite resources for virtual reality in education. Whether you’re totally new to this concept or looking for new educational VR apps to add to your toolkit, there are lots to choose from! Don’t worry, I’ll tell the whole story of my second grade virtual reality exploration in a June post (sign up here to get it in your inbox). And if you want an e-Book for summer reading you can grab my free getting started guide for virtual reality in education by clicking here.
The list below includes virtual reality apps for mobile devices and websites that give you quick access to virtual reality videos for your classroom. Of course, having a headset like the low-cost Google Cardboard is great but most of these virtual reality in the classroom resources work on web-browsers too. If you have a favorite you think I should add to the list, make sure to leave a comment at the bottom of this post!

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | The virtual classroom | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.
