A quote from the former US Secretary of Education The goal of blended courses is to join the best features of in-class teaching with the best features of online learning to promote active independent learning.

Flipped-Learning Toolkit: Let's Talk Tech Editor's Note:This post was co-authored by Aaron Sams, Managing Director of FlippedClass.com and founding member of the Flipped Learning Network. The greatest benefit of flipped learning is the restructuring of class time, which is more of a pedagogical solution than a technological solution. However, the in-class benefit is dependent upon the utilization of technology tools. So what technologies are necessary in a flipped classroom? Content Creation Tools One of the most difficult challenges for some teachers to overcome is the mastery of a content creation tool.

Both of these apps can be used by students without creating any kind of new online accounts. Neither one is entirely perfect, but they're both quite good. Flipped classroom 2.0 Learning Published on May 24th, 2014 | by Mark Anderson I’ve been a big fan and supporter of flipped learning for a long time. I wrote about it at length in Perfect ICT and whilst most evidence is anecdotal, in my experience, it works. For those of you who don’t know, flipped learning is the attempt to take much of the instructional element out of the classroom in to the home via homework so that support of more difficult concepts and reinforcement can take place in the classroom. Jon Tait ran a small action research trial in his school which you can read about here – you can find it reblogged and written about in a number of places elsewhere too.

What impact? 5 ways to put research into practice in the 1-to-1 classroom Technology in the classroom has had a long and chequered history. Traditionally, the debate around its utility has been dominated by bouncy edtech evangelists in one corner, promising technology-fueled educational transformation, and by staunch technology sceptics opposite, reminding us all that, as far as they can see, said transformation is yet to manifest itself after decades of digital technology use. The resulting, often acutely polarised debate usually ignores altogether how technology is actually used in our schools to support the daily business of teaching and learning and how teachers and learners continue teaching and learning using whichever tool gets the job done, because, for most of us, technology is neither the problem nor the solution, it is just an option. So, what does research suggest works? Are there any ‘best bets’ that we can use as a starting point to evaluate and improve our practice?

Redefining The Task Many of you will have heard of the SAMR model for embedding technology in education, developed by Dr Ruben Puentedura. This two phase, four step model posits that the true aim for anyone seeking to harness tech in the classroom should be to redefine the actual tasks we are setting as educators. The iPad offers a wealth of opportunities to reach this goal due to its innate versatility and mobility. A teacher recently told me that she didn't see the point of iPads in education as there was nothing she could do with them that she couldn't do without them. This is a classic case of someone who is only able to see/utilise technology within the ""Substitution" band. It's the 21st centrury and we're preparing children for a future that is inescapably threaded with the use of technology.
