Watching #flipclass videos: F.I.T.C.H. I made a short video for next year's students on how to get the most out of a "Flip Class" video. For their summer packet this year, they are going to be doing some "flip class-y" things... rather than just being given a packet of review problems to do, they are going to be given that packet, have videos to go along with each lesson, and then submit a reflection similar to a WSQ online. I'm hoping this will help ease my students in to next year's class. You can see what I have set up for them at my student site (still under construction for next year) - kirchmathanalysis.blogspot.com You can see the letter that explains what I am having them do here. I decided to come up with an acronym (I love acronyms!) F - Focused, Serious Attitude. I - Involved in the process.
Flipped class 9 Video Tips for a Better Flipped Classroom In 2007, when Colorado high school teachers Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams began experimenting with recording their lectures in order to spend class time on deeper face-to-face learning with students, they probably didnt foresee the major movement that would grow up around what came to be called the flipped classroom. But six years later, the […] Read More Are students are doing the work in the flipped classroom?

Literature Review « Kim_Bathker Educational Technology in a Flipped Classroom Setting Kim Bathker Introduction The rise of technology in the classroom opened up new doors for educators, who saw the potential for computer use and the incorporation of multimedia elements to engage and motivate students. The Flipped Classroom Model Though it was popularized by the much-publicized work of Bergmann, Sams and Khan, the flipped classroom model was first described by Baker in 2000. Though Lage, Platt, and Treglia (2000) coined the classroom model “inverted,” rather than flipped, their methodology was essentially the same as Baker’s (p. 32). Seven years after Baker’s and Lage, Platt and Treglia’s studies, high school chemistry teachers Bergmann and Sams teamed up to record their PowerPoint lecture presentations using screen capture software. Bergmann and Sams’s classroom experiment gained the attention of many in the education community, including Khan of the Khan Academy. Flipped Classrooms and Brain-based Learning Conclusion
Project Based Learning You remember what it was like in school. IT WAS BORING! You sat in class, memorized as much as you could and tried to pass a test at the end. But is that good enough? Most adults live in a world of projects. Let’s take a look at this Project Based World. Claire came out of the project looking like a rock star and she learned a lot about green products. The world needs more Claires. The answer is Project Based Learning or PBL. Here’s what I mean. Mr. After dividing the class into teams, he got them started on the project. The project teams showed off their final work to an enthusiastic audience of parents and their children at a nearby elementary school. His students practiced critical thinking, collaboration and communication. At the end of the presentation, Claire introduced herself to the students and told them that they were rockstars, and that the world needs more people who can think like them. I'm Lee LeFever, and this has been Project Based Learning Explained by Common Craft.
Is It Really Hip to Flip? “Try it! You might like it!” is not a sufficient reason for initiating flipped instruction. What are the questions educators should be asking in order to ensure the best outcomes for students? Hardly a week has gone by in the last year when educators have not been bombarded by news articles, blog posts, or invitations to attend webinars and conferences focused on the flipped classroom. A flipped lesson incorporates viewing instructional videos for homework. Although an instructional video can be a valuable tool, is this current focus on the flip being made at the expense of other technologies that should play a role in instruction?

Présentation | Classe Inversée Ce site a pour but d’expliquer le concept de classe inversée à tous les professeurs qui souhaitent avoir un réel impact auprès de leurs élèves et qui veulent connaitre les meilleures méthodes pour développer une ambiance de classe motivante et décontractée. Exemple de classe inversée Ce concept connait un succès grandissant : de plus en plus de professeurs à travers le monde modifient leur façon de “faire la classe” pour passer à un modèle plus pratique et plus humain. La classe inversée : plus qu’une méthode, une philosophie Le fonctionnement est le suivant : les élèves reçoivent des cours sous forme de ressources en ligne (en général des vidéos) qu’ils vont pouvoir regarder chez eux à la place des devoirs, et ce qui était auparavant fait à la maison est désormais fait en classe, d’où l’idée de classe “inversée”. Professeur guidant un groupe de travail Il s’agit donc davantage d’une philosophie que d’une méthode à proprement parler. Un modèle plus humain …et plein de bon sens
Wikis These four friends are going on a camping trip. They need to bring the right supplies because they're backpacking. The group needs to plan and plan well, so coordination is key. They're all computer users, so they start planning with an email. It's start with one, but then becomes a barrage. The important information is scattered across everyone's inbox. There is a better way. Most wikis work the same. The buttons are really important. Here are our camping friends and here is a wiki website. Once you're finished editing, you click save and the document becomes a webpage once again, and is ready for the next person to edit it - easy! Edit - Write - and Save. Mary signs up for a wiki site and then sees the new site for the first time. Now it's John's turn. Henry visits the wiki, clicks edit and he can edit the page. Frank saves the page and realizes something awesome. But wait! John visits the wiki and clicks edit to edit the page.
The Flipped Class Blog 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 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 Do you have structures to support this? I know I may have "upset the apple cart" for those who love the flipped classroom.
Edmodo Scavenger Hunt Video Playlist I finally decided to do something that I been putting off for too long - finishing my scavenger hunt videos (I only had three left to record, and it took me less than 5 minutes - shesh) and adding the last 8 mini-videos to my MentorMob playlist. So I did it today! I decided to do an edmodo scavenger hunt because some of my students will be familiar with edmodo (because I had them last year and we used it) and some of my students have most likely never heard of it (Some of my students last year did talk about it to students who weren't in my class). I decided to break the scavenger hunt into steps (18 to be exact) and include a checklist on paper so my students could check it off as they go and get a visual of their progress. Create your own Playlist on MentorMob! On a side note, I love mentor mob. I'm going to be working on Unit C - Pronouns and continuing to create my flipped class units.
