The Flipped Classroom is not... Introduction to Our Flipped Classroom. Edmodo Scavenger Hunt Video Playlist. I finally decided to do something that I been putting off for too long - finishing my scavenger hunt videos (I only had three left to record, and it took me less than 5 minutes - shesh) and adding the last 8 mini-videos to my MentorMob playlist. So I did it today! I decided to do an edmodo scavenger hunt because some of my students will be familiar with edmodo (because I had them last year and we used it) and some of my students have most likely never heard of it (Some of my students last year did talk about it to students who weren't in my class). I decided to break the scavenger hunt into steps (18 to be exact) and include a checklist on paper so my students could check it off as they go and get a visual of their progress.

Most of the videos are under 2 minutes (Step 12 or 13- can't remember which - is 5 minutes). Create your own Playlist on MentorMob! Internet Catalogue. DI+CHOICE+BOARDS. Wikis. These four friends are going on a camping trip.


They need to bring the right supplies because they're backpacking. The group needs to plan and plan well, so coordination is key. They're all computer users, so they start planning with an email. It's start with one, but then becomes a barrage. Email is not good at coordinating and organizing a group's input. The important information is scattered across everyone's inbox. There is a better way. Most wikis work the same. The buttons are really important. Here are our camping friends and here is a wiki website. Once you're finished editing, you click save and the document becomes a webpage once again, and is ready for the next person to edit it - easy! Project Based Learning. You remember what it was like in school.

Project Based Learning

IT WAS BORING! You sat in class, memorized as much as you could and tried to pass a test at the end. But is that good enough? These days school can be more interesting and effective by focusing students on work that matters. Most adults live in a world of projects. Let’s take a look at this Project Based World. Claire came out of the project looking like a rock star and she learned a lot about green products. The world needs more Claires. Turning Learning on Its Head! Flipteaching.

For their summer packet this year, they are going to be doing some "flip class-y" things... rather than just being given a packet of review problems to do, they are going to be given that packet, have videos to go along with each lesson, and then submit a reflection similar to a WSQ online. I'm hoping this will help ease my students in to next year's class. We will have six sections of Math Analysis in the fall, split between me and another teacher.

The other teacher is considering doing some aspects of the flipped class next year, but not fully like I am doing. Regardless, we hope that this will prepare them for the new type of learning and set the stage for the student reflection and responsibility that will be required in a flipped classroom. You can see what I have set up for them at my student site (still under construction for next year) - Educational Videos - Using Game Design to Improve My Classroom. Blooms-with-notes.png (637×477)
