Just as students are no longer tethered to textbooks (in most formal education settings), apps that are strictly didactic–designed to promote academic proficiency and foundational fluency–are often the first that parents and teachers reach for when looking for something “constructive.” But the reality is, the 21st century is as much about finding, evaluating, managing, sharing, and curating information as it is reading texts, answering questions, and applying memorized formulas to neatly scaffolded problems. So, critical thinking and transfer over accuracy and recall. In that context, what are often thought of as “productivity apps” are not only “educational,” but are often the real marrow of 21st century learning.

I'll tell you a story - Audio Written by Anonymous "The Story of the Three Bears" (sometimes known as "The Three Bears", "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" or, simply, "Goldilocks") is a fairy talefirst recorded in narrative form by British author and poet Robert Southey, and first published anonymously in a volume of his writings in 1837. The same year, British writer George Nicol published a version in rhyme based upon Southey's prose tale, with Southey approving the attempt to bring the story more exposure. Both versions tell of three bears and an old woman who trespasses upon their property. "The Story of the Three Bears" was in circulation before the publication of Southey's 1837 version.

Organized by the Sound at the Beginning of the Word Flipped Learning How We Can Help Colin Hegarty and Brian Arnold are two Maths teachers working in London schools. They have taught several of their maths classes using the flipped learning/blended learning model. This model involves getting students to watch and engage with tailored videos prior to the lesson in school and then, when in class, the students do maths for the entire lesson with virtually no teacher instruction to the class as a whole. You can use our videos to try the flipped learning model or you can contact us for tips and advice on how to do this for yourselves. One of the benefits we have experienced from the making of the videos for our classes, is that students from around the country have also used these videos for their independent maths study and revision for their maths exams.
