Flipteaching Five Best Practices for the Flipped Classroom Ok, I'll be honest. I get very nervous when I hear education reformists and politicians tout how "incredible" the flipped-classroom model, or how it will "solve" many of the problems of education. It doesn't solve anything. It is a great first step in reframing the role of the teacher in the classroom. It fosters the "guide on the side" mentality and role, rather than that of the "sage of the stage." It helps move a classroom culture towards student construction of knowledge rather than the teacher having to tell the knowledge to students. It also creates the opportunity for differentiated roles to meet the needs of students through a variety of instructional activities. 1) Need to Know How are you creating a need to know the content that is recorded? 2) Engaging Models One of the best way to create the "need to know" is to use a pedagogical model that demands this. 3) Technology What technology do you have to support the flipped classroom? 4) Reflection 5) Time and Place

Khan and Beyond: The Many Faces of the Flipped Classroom - Education Community Blog Building Your Own Textbook Textbooks are a multi-billion dollar industry -- an estimated $3.5 billion for the K-12 market alone. But the growing availability of digital content and open educational resources (OER) is giving schools the opportunity to bypass some of the traditional expenses of textbook purchasing. It's also giving teachers the opportunities to build their own textbooks. No doubt the move from print to digital content is shaking up the entire publishing industry. But the opportunity to shake up and rethink textbooks seems particularly profound. When you digitize other types of books -- novels, for example -- you (probably) want to retain the layout and the chronology of the original print version. You can also include in a digital textbook (or "course packet" or whatever we'd call this new collection of materials) just those resources that students are actually assigned to work through.

Perhaps you have tried a little Flip of your own and want to learn more. If you are beginning to investigate what a Flipped Classroom is, with the thought of possibly trying some kind of Flip yourself… then this is also the right place. Many educators are beginning to become aware of the growing teaching method referred to as “Flipping The Classroom”. You see, at first this definition does make a lot of sense, and like so many “best practices” I see great value in the idea. Yes, I am a proponent of incorporating various multimedia and online learning in a blended environment.

Flipped: Why It Has to Be A Conversation by John T. Spencer I know that "flipped" is a trendy idea right now. While I am intrigued by the idea of video tutorials to help guide students in learning, it is absurd to suggest that a video can replace a human in creating the ultimate customized learning experience. What this concept misses is the nature of human learning. Teaching is a relational endeavor. I'm a proponent of the flipped approach. If it's a multiple choice test, I can hope the answer matches the student's idea (rather than a simple guess). At this point, a graded paper doesn't make any difference. Teachers can do this with small group pullouts and with student-teacher conferences. Google Docs: I can highlight text, add comments and start a conversation that will last anytime anywhere.
21st Century Fluency Project How A Flipped Classroom Actually Works [Interview] What happens when the students have more control in the classroom? Flipped classrooms are being tested out around the world and we’ve featured a few examples in case you wanted to see who is flippin’ out. Until now, we didn’t have an in-depth look at the effects of a flipped classroom or answers to the big questions it raises. Thanks to Susan Murphy of Algonquin College (check out her awesome blog suzemuse.com !) She used the flipped classroom model for her First Year Video and Audio Production class which is part of the Interactive Multimedia Developer program. What inspired you to use the flipped classroom model? One of the big challenges I was having in my video production class was teaching the required software (Adobe Premiere Pro). So, when I was teaching the software to the class using the conventional method (in-class lecture and demonstration), I had students who didn’t get it at all, students who were bored, and students who were kind of able to follow along.
