Flipped Classroom: Engaging Students with EdPuzzle

Flipped Classroom: Engaging Students with EdPuzzle
The flipped classroom model is a blended learning strategy I use to present my vocabulary, writing, and grammar instruction online. Students watch videos at home where they can control the pace of their learning, then they come to class prepared to apply that information in collaborative student-centered activities. One thing I emphasize when I lead professional development for teachers is the importance of flipping and engaging. Instead of simply consuming information, I want students to think critically about that information. This requires that I design flipped lessons that encourage students to ask questions, analyze the information, and discuss concepts with peers asynchronously online to begin making sense of the information they are receiving at home. There are a variety of ways to do this. A newer tool I’m excited to use with students come fall is EDpuzzle. Step 1: Find the Perfect Video Once you’ve created an account, you can search for videos using keywords or a URL.

Four Assessment Strategies for the Flipped Learning Environment Flipped learning environments offer unique opportunities for student learning, as well as some unique challenges. By moving direct instruction from the class group space to the individual students’ learning spaces, time and space are freed up for the class as a learning community to explore the most difficult concepts of the course. Likewise, because students are individually responsible for learning the basics of new material, they gain regular experience with employing self-regulated learning strategies they would not have in an unflipped environment. But because initial engagement with new material is done independently as a preparation for class time rather than as its focus, many things could go wrong. If students do the assigned pre-class work but don’t acquire enough fluency with the basics—or if they simply don’t do it at all—then the in-class experience could be somewhere between lethargic and disastrous. A key to achieving this kind of environment is assessment.

How to Create a Learning Video They’ll Want to Watch Hiring Mark Zuckerberg to deliver a workshop or run a retreat is not always the most practical or cost-effective solution.

The greatest benefit of flipped learning is the restructuring of class time, which is more of a pedagogical solution than a technological solution.
