Top 5 Web Tools my students will be using this next year in my Flipped Class

This will be edited and updated throughout the summer. Here are the Top 5 Web Tools my students will be using a lot this next year. I will still be adding to the notes for each web tool in terms of HOW I am going to use it... these are just my thoughts right now. EdmodoEdmodo will be used for private class communication (anything I don't want to post publicly on the blog) as well as alerts/reminders to students and parents.Students can use Edmodo to store their files.

Edit: *Educreations is my favorite iPad screenrecording app... it would probably be on this list but I have a grand total of ONE iPad in my classroom (mine). Do you have any super-duper awesome Web Tools that you think should definitely be on my list? Please share: what it is, how you use it, and why I should use it, too!

Since I started flipping my world history class this year, many educators have asked questions about the model and its implementation.

Flipping History Q & A

Chase Moore (@moore2cw), a fellow world history teacher interested in the flipped model, recently posed the following questions. He had recently read my post about the flipped mastery model in our history class (which has since changed a bit, more below). I thought posting this brief conversation could further the discussion online with others interested in the ways that the flipped model can be applied to the social studies classroom. “How do you develop your Standards?” After a few units of flipping, I started applying a standards-based-grading approach. I have since changed the terminology to “learning goals,” since this resonates with the students more than “standards.” For example, one learning goal will be from Standard 1: Content Knowledge. Here is a link to the document I provided the students: Goal of Flipped Class Videos: Content Delivery or Skill Development? It recently occurred to me that since I began flipping my world history course in January, each of my screencast lectures have had one overarching goal: content delivery.

Goal of Flipped Class Videos: Content Delivery or Skill Development?

This has proven tremendously useful and the early results, considering both assessment scores and student feedback, are encouraging. Transitioning some of my direct instruction (content delivery through lecture) to video has helped students understand some of the major events and themes from world history, but I realized what I should shift my focus towards: building social studies skills! Since most of our class time is now spent working on such skills, I now have a better understanding of their ability to engage in such learning experiences.

In sum, I overestimated many of their abilities. For example, we recently worked on evaluating the historical significance of cold war events. Flipped-History. Creating Assessments. Video organization using Google Spreadsheets and Sites.

" Below is a brief intro video (also a sample screencast...) What is a "flipped class? " First, it is not (I repeat NOT) simply having students watch Khan Academy videos at school. Since that is out of the way, the following links provide great overviews of the flipped class model. Friday Institute for Educational Innovation - FIZZ. Concluded in August, 2013.

Friday Institute for Educational Innovation - FIZZ

The FIZZ method refers to the use of extraordinarily simple video recording techniques that educators can use to transform teaching and learning. This method can be used to successfully flip the classroom by having teachers film and reflect on their lecture content. These teacher-created videos give students the ability to watch the lecture outside of the classroom, freeing up class time that can be used to challenge students to think critically and creatively. FIZZ provides a more rigorous and relevant education for a new generation of learners. Here. Internet Catalogue. The Flipped Classroom Infographic.
