Through the use of innovative technologies and online resources, school libraries can now be available to students wherever—and whenever—they need them. “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. “The library has to be flipped. In the classroom, Valenza notes, the flipped model frees up time to be used interactively on problem-based learning, and turns the 100-plus-year-old instruction model on its head. Flipping The Classroom Simply Explained. Flipped learning is much more than just watching videos as homework or about teachers creating videos as homework for students, it is rather a learning process that engages students through real and authentic action.

The purpose is to maximize learning through capitalizing on the classroom instruction time. Students watch lectures at home at their own pace and communicate with peers and teachers via online discussions, and in class they get to work on their homework and be conceptually engaged in their learning. For those students who might not have technology or parents to help them outside school now have teachers guiding them in class.

Flip-the-classroom.png (PNG Image, 698 × 2378 pixels) - Scaled (38%) The Flipped Classroom: Pro and Con. In 2012, I attended the ISTE conference in San Diego, CA. While I was only there for about 36 hours, it was easy for me to pick up on one of the hottest topics for the three-day event. The "flipped classroom" was being discussed in social lounges, in conference sessions, on the exhibit floor, on the hashtag and even at dinner. People wanted to know what it was, what it wasn't, how it's done and why it works.

Others wanted to sing its praises and often included a vignette about how it works in their classroom and how it transformed learning for their students. Still others railed that the model is nothing transformative at all and that it still emphasizes sage-on-the-stage direct instruction rather than student-centered learning. I engaged in a few of these discussions offline and online, and while I'm still on the fence about my feelings toward the model, I can offer some insight and interpretation.

Why I Gave Up Flipped Instruction. A little over a year ago I wrote a post about the flipped classroom, why I loved it, and how I used it. 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.

When I wrote that post, I imagined the flip as a stepping stone to a fully realized inquiry/PBL classroom. What is the flip? The flipped classroom essentially reverses traditional teaching. When I first encountered the flip, it seemed like a viable way to help deal with the large and sometimes burdensome amount of content included in my senior Biology & Chemistry curricula. My flipped experiments I first encountered the flip in a blog post. My students loved the idea of trying something that very few other students were doing. We began to shift What was my role?

Illustration by Brian Stauffer Back in 2007, two high school science teachers in Woodland Park, CO, decided to try a “crazy idea.” “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.

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. Aside from the technology involved, it’s not necessarily a new idea.

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. Students then open the Ask3 app on their iPads, enter their names, create a password for themselves, and enter the room number that you gave them. Students do not have to have email addresses to use Ask3.

Ask3 could be a great app to use to develop and share short tutorials with your students. 17 iPad Apps We Explored Using With High School Post-Graduates May 22, 2013 In "College" Registration. And the Flipped Classroom. How the Flipped Classroom Turned Me into a Better Student - Getting Smart. Kylie is a 12th Grade Student at Clintondale High School, in Clinton Township, Michigan My first two years of high school were a continuous struggle.

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.

By Phil Goerner, teacher librarian at Silver Creek High School, Longmont, CO on September 29, 2012 So, what’s the buzz on supporting online instruction? 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. The flipped classroom concept is simple: instruct students when they’re not in the classroom and use face-to-face class time to support them and give them resources.

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. Experiential Engagement: The Activity. 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. They may use the tool superficially and often just for the sake of “using technology”. With Flipped Professional Development, however, the process is “flipped”.
