Are You Ready to Flip?

Are You Ready to Flip?
" . . .not all material is suitable to be taught through a video lesson."Are You Ready to Flip?Part 2 of 3 of "The Flipped Class" by Dan Spencer, Deb Wolf and Aaron Sams Recently there has been increased interest in "best practices" of the flipped classroom in education. During the recent Flipped Class Conference at Woodland Park High School in Woodland Park Colorado, a team of experienced "flipped teachers" collaborated to create a three-part series for The Daily Riff concerning the nature of the Flipped Class. Begin with the end in mind. After determining what you want your students to master and how that should look, begin creating (or collecting) quality learning resources. In this process, consider the idea of student choice when creating and collecting these learning resources. If content is delivered outside of class time, it is up to the teacher to provide the students with opportunities in class to place the content they learned into context.

The Flipped Classroom Model: A Full Picture Due to Khan Academy’s popularity, the idea of the flipped classroom has gained press and credibility within education circles. Briefly, the Flipped Classroom as described by Jonathan Martin is: Flip your instruction so that students watch and listen to your lectures… for homework, and then use your precious class-time for what previously, often, was done in homework: tackling difficult problems, working in groups, researching, collaborating, crafting and creating. The Flipped Class Revealed Editor's Note: This is Part 3 of 3 of The Flipped Class Series at The Daily Riff. You can start here, by reading this post, and go backwards and still understand what's going on in the conversation.

How the Flipped Classroom Is Radically Transforming Learning Editor's Note:Posts about the flipped class on The Daily Riff beginning in January 2011 have generated over 240,000 views to-date - thanks contributors and readers . . . See our other links related to the flipped class below this guest post. Since this post was written, Bergmann and Sams have released their book, Flip your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day. Do check it out. - C.J. The best way to reach each student? Private school Math teacher flips learning Bullis School teacher, Stacey Roshan, pictured at far left in above photo Editor's Note: The Daily Riff discovered teacher Stacey Roshan's work through research about "reverse instruction" or "the flipped classroom" or the "backwards classroom" that was featured in The Daily Riff post's "Teacher Doing the Flip to Help Students Become Learners", and "How the Flipped Classroom is Radically Transforming Learning". We are delighted to have a guest post by Roshan of the Bullis School in Maryland talking about actual in-class implementation, the feedback by students, and what parents think.

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. The timing couldn't have been more perfect since he was about to leave for a conference about you-guessed-it, the flipped class. Here is Part 1 of our three part series The Daily Riff. See Part 2 and 3 links below. - C.J. Westerberg The Flipped Class: What it is and What it is Not IPad = Flipped Classroom Made Easy Yes, the Flipped Classroom (Video lessons watched before class time) is a fashionable topic but whilst there’s still chalk-and-talk together with standardised testing I feel I must continue to push it. And no, it’s not just chalk-and-talk in disguise. It creates a whole new learning environment for the student. I haven’t taught a whole class for 6 months!

Teachers "Doing The Flip" To Help Students Become Learners "The way we were taught is not necessarily the way we should be teaching students." - Stacey Roshan, HS Algebra Teacher, Bullis SchoolLearning for Mastery3 Quick Videos Below It's called "flip teaching" and "reverse teaching" or a "backwards classroom" (who knew?), and "reverse instruction." Here's how it's happening, for real: Kids watch lectures and videos at home Class is for hands-on work and face-to-face interaction with teacher/peersSo why has this method become such a booming topic in education?

Screencasting Feedback on Student Essays Last semester I was faced with a larger-than-usual senior composition class for English majors—which of course also meant a larger-than-usual feedback load. With a new baby at home, I was more than a little concerned about finding the time to do it all. Fully aware of the research (e.g. Ferris, 1997; Hyland & Hyland, 2006) that favors more detailed feedback on student writing (seems “awkward: reword” just doesn’t cut it), I could not in good conscience consider reducing the quality or quantity of the feedback I usually give. Moreover, my feedback would typically include holding “writing conferences” (one-on-one consultations) with students—usually during office hours. But this was a big class, and there are just so many hours in a day.

Flip your classroom through reverse instruction Have you ever experienced the unique and rare moment when, after doing something the same way for year and years, you have an epiphany and wonder, "why am I doing it this way?" Most of the time the answer is tradition, that's the way we've always done it. At one time, there probably was a sound, logical, reasonable explanation for the decision to do it that way. Take, for example, the Bodleian Library in Oxford. How to Create Assessments for the Flipped Classroom It seems like everyone is talking about the flipped classroom. But how do you use this new model to construct lessons and assessments that reinforce student learning? “Flipping” involves turning Bloom’s Taxonomy on its head. Instead of using class time to convey the basic information you want your students to remember and asking them to work on more difficult learning tasks alone, a flipped class asks students to come to class prepared with the foundational information and then to work on the challenging tasks of analysis, evaluation, and creation with others.
