A Short Overview of 12 Tools for Creating Flipped Classroom Lessons
One of the most frequent requests that I get is for suggestions on developing flipped classroom lessons. The first step is to decide if you want to create your own video lessons from scratch or if you want to develop lessons based on videos that others have produced. In this post we'll look at tools for doing both. Developing flipped lessons from scratch with your own videos. The benefit of creating your own videos is that you can tailor them to exactly match your curriculum. The drawback to this is that it requires more time on your part. Tools for creating your own flipped video lessons: The Knowmia Teach iPad app is an excellent app for creating your own whiteboard videos. Educreations is a free iPad app that turns your iPad into a whiteboard. In the free eduClipper iPad app you can create instructional videos on a whiteboard in the Khan Academy style. If you don't have an iPad, PixiClip is a good option for creating simple instructional videos.

Einsatz digitaler Medien in der Schule – Wie Flipped Classroom den Unterricht revolutioniert Flipped Classroom (Umgedrehter Unterricht) ist eine Unterrichtsmethode des selbstorganisierten Lernens, in dem die Lerninhalte zu Hause von den Schülern erarbeitet werden und die Anwendung in der Schule geschieht. Beim Flipped Classroom erstellen die Lehrer Material für die Schüler, häufig in Form von Videosequenzen, die von ihnen zu Hause verarbeitet werden. Somit führt Flipped Classroom durch die Verlagerung der Lehrsequenzen nach Hause zu mehr Unterrichtszeit und bietet Schülern die Möglichkeit, die Lehrinhalte selbstbestimmt und im eigenen Tempo anzuwenden.

The Flipped Class: Myths vs. Reality Editor's Note: On the heels of our viral posts in over 100 countries about the flipped classroom earlier this year (links below), we asked Jon Bergmann if he could share some of the feedback he was receiving in light of the notable interest about this topic.

Westerberg The Flipped Class: What it is and What it is Not Finding the right resource to support flipped classrooms in the UK What if traditional methods of classroom teaching and ‘homework’ were switched? Teaching professionals have constantly looked at improving ways of raising learner engagement and attainment. While some have fared better than others, it is technology that has offered the greatest scope for innovation, helping the teacher to spend more time supporting students directly rather than instructing them from the front of the class. Flipped or reversed teaching is not a new concept; it dates back to the early nineties where it was trialled in a study on Peer Instruction at Harvard University. The basis of Professor Eric Mazur’s study was to integrate computer software into the classroom in order to allow the teacher to act as a coach rather than a lecturer. Today, the purpose of flipped learning has not changed.

Higher Education Academy What is flipped learning? Flipped learning is a pedagogical approach in which the conventional notion of classroom-based learning is inverted, so that students are introduced to the learning material before class, with classroom time then being used to deepen understanding through discussion with peers and problem-solving activities facilitated by teachers. Where did flipped learning come from? The phrase ‘flipped learning’ came into general use in the early mid-2000s when it was popularised by chemistry teachers Jon Bergman and Aaron Sams (Bergmann and Sams 2012) and the founder of the Khan Academy, Salman Khan (TED 2011).
