Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros

“Flipped” or blended learning offers students the power of personalized instruction, through a mix of virtual and face-to-face interactions, at a student’s own pace. Embracing this concept is a must for student engagement and the future of the profession, say school librarians Joyce Valenza, Brenda Boyer, and Michelle Luhtala. The powerhouse trio of experts shared their thoughts on the concept during “Flipped School Libraries,” a rapid-fire, dynamic session during The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries (#TDS13) webcast on October 16, in which they exchanged tips, inspiration, motivation, and their favorite tech tools.

Why I Gave Up Flipped Instruction

I have to admit, the flip wasn’t the same economic and political entity then that it is now. And in some ways, I think that matters. Here’s the thing. When I recently re-read the post, I didn’t disagree with anything I’d said. Flipping the Classroom: A revolutionary approach to learning presents some pros and cons. Illustration by Brian Stauffer Back in 2007, two high school science teachers in Woodland Park, CO, decided to try a “crazy idea.”

Flipping the Classroom: A revolutionary approach to learning presents some pros and cons

“We said, ‘What if we stopped lecturing and committed all our lectures to videos?’” Says Jon Bergmann, now the lead technology facilitator at the Joseph Sears School in Kenilworth, IL. He and fellow educator Aaron Sams posted their short films—15 to 20 minutes long—for students to watch at home. (Parents could also look and say, “Oh, I see how the teacher wants it done!” Flipping the classroom lets school become a place for talking, doing group projects, and getting individual help from teachers—and lets home become a place for watching instructional videos.

Students can use Ask3 to ask questions about the video, mark the video with drawing tools, and create their own audio comments about the video. You share Ask3 videos to your students through a virtual workspace room. When you register as a teacher you are given a room number to share with your students.

How the Flipped Classroom Turned Me into a Better Student - Getting Smart

I wasn’t very engaged during class, had a difficult time doing my homework, and was unable to get help from my parents because they didn’t know the material that I was being assigned. After my sophomore year I took the ACT test and scored a 13 – which was not good enough to have many options after high school. I began preparing myself to work at McDonalds because I didn’t think there would be anything else I’d be qualified to pursue after I finished high school.

It wasn’t what I wanted – but it seemed to be my only option. On my first day of class junior year, everything changed. My school began flipping all of its classes, which meant that for homework, I was assigned videos to watch, which were made by my teachers and explained the material which we were learning. The flipped classroom made a huge impact on my education – and life. What Teachers Need to Know about Flipped Classroom. The Flipped Classroom: Professional Development Workshop.

Tech Tidbits from the Guybrarian: Are You Flipping?

Like many of you, several of our teachers started the new school year wanting to broaden the way they instruct their students. Here are a couple of examples of teachers who have successfully flipped their classrooms or used online techniques to give their students feedback.

Innovative Educational Technology Online Learning Webinars

Recognizing innovative ways of producing online lessons, this webinar will showcase two examples of Texas colleges who have used eLearning to meet educational needs traditionally addressed through face-to-face instruction. These interactive eLearning modules were made possible by an innovative statewide collaborative Softchalk license that covers all 65 Texas public, community, and technical colleges–provided by the Virtual College of Texas, a Service of the Texas Association of Community Colleges. Teaching Information Literacy Online helps maximize faculty time with students in the classroom.

The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Tinkering and Maker Education. If you have been following my blog series on The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture, you know that I am using this opportunity, given all the press on flipped classroom, to discuss a model of teaching and learning based on experiential education. It is a model in which authentic, often hands-on, experiences and student interests drive the learning process, and the videos, as they are being proposed in the flipped classroom discourse, support the learning rather than being central or at the core of learning. The idea of experience being core to learning has been discussed by Dale Dougherty, the publisher of Make Magazine, in the context of Maker Education: I see the power of engaging kids in science and technology through the practices of making and hands-on experiences, through tinkering and taking things apart. Schools seem to have forgotten that students learn best when they are engaged; in fact, the biggest problem in schools is boredom.

Flipped Class Network - A professional learning community for teachers using vodcasting in the classroom. FlippedPD. There are many challenges facing educators today when it comes to integrating technology into their curriculum. One challenge is time – it’s hard to find time during the day to work on learning and implementing new technologies. With Flipped Professional Development, the Technology Integration Specialists work with building principals to create blocks of time during the school day each month for small groups of teachers to meet in a workshop setting. This workshop time is vital as it allows for collaboration between teachers and professional coaching from the Technology Integration Specialists. Another challenge is depth. In a traditional model of professional development, teachers may have initial excitement about a new technology tool but are left alone when the time comes to use that new tool in their classroom.
