Building a community and student engagement as prerequisites for a successful flipped classroom. {*style:<b>Learning Activities: </b>*} Discussion: Discuss an Epic Learning Experience. What is an epic learning experience you had as a learner or facilitated as an educator? What made your learning experience epic? Add a slide (image and statement) about your epic win to our Google Presentation at Activity: Choose an artifact (photo, symbol) that represents peak learning experience or epic win (as related to #1).

Free Technology for Teachers Flipped Classroom 2.0: Competency Learning With Videos The flipped classroom model generated a lot of excitement initially, but more recently some educators — even those who were initial advocates — have expressed disillusionment with the idea of assigning students to watch instructional videos at home and work on problem solving and practice in class. Biggest criticisms: watching videos of lectures wasn’t all that revolutionary, that it perpetuated bad teaching and raised questions about equal access to digital technology. Now flipped classroom may have reached equilibrium, neither loved nor hated, just another potential tool for teachers — if done well. “There is no place for them to hide. The two teachers admit when they started flipping their classrooms they put everything into video form. “The best use of class time is to meet the individual needs of each learner, not driving the class with predetermined curriculum,” Sams said.

CamStudio - Free Screen Recording Software Mrs. Hester's Classroom : Interactive Notebook Well, my students and I have been in quadratic functions for quite a while now! Especially since our EOC testing fell in the middle of it all. I also feel like I did much better job this year with letting them explore/figure out the intricacies before we formalized in their notebooks. So, for example on the "factoring" pages, we spent a day just using algebra tiles to understand what was truly happening and the relationships between the numbers. All that to say, quadratic functions took a long time! So... here are my notebook pages. Man, as I'm uploading, most are blurry. Our Learning Goals/SBG page. I plan to implement SBG more next year and these pages are allowing me to dabble in the idea without fully committing yet. Investigating a quadratic function for the first time... Focus and Directrix pages from Sarah. The same properties of quadratic functions pages that I did last year. Angry birds and vertex form. Standard Form and a summary page from here. Original idea and post HERE.

Flipped Learning and Control I was able to join some fantastic educators today last Friday for a Flipped Learning workshop hosted by the Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals. I was part of a group from TechSmith, while Dan Spencer, Laura Bell, Jonathan Palmer, Missy McCarthy, Delia Bush, David Fouch, and Greg Green were panelists for the workshop. I’ve been acquainted with Greg since I heard about his plans to flip his entire high school. I met him in person this past fall, and I’ve been challenged by his thoughtfulness and questions ever since. Last fall, Greg and I had a conversation about why he flipped Clintondale…he wanted more control. Confession: I didn’t understand what he meant at all. Fast forward to this morning. We are at a point where information and support are constantly in a power struggle. Enter personal computing. The key to this is that we successfully blend the access to information and the support only a teacher can give.

The Flipped Foreign Language Classroom: RESOURCES The Flipped Language Classroom RESOURCES Below are resources for exploring the possibilities of the flipped classroom, professional learning networks where educators are discussing blended learning and reverse instruction, and tools for designing your own flipped language classroom! What? Flipped teaching is a form of blended learning which encompasses any use of Internet technology to leverage the learning in a classroom, so a teacher can spend more time interacting with students instead of lecturing. This is most commonly being done using teacher-created videos that students view outside of class time. It is also known as backwards classroom, reverse instruction, flipping the classroom, and reverse teaching (accessed on Wikipedia 11/11/12). Why? How? How?

Math = Love Learning with Technology: Flipped Teaching Guest post by Steve Salik, Ph.D. Over the past three years or so, screencasting and lecture capture technology have become a hot topic in education. While the technology itself isn’t new, the discussion about how these technologies can improve teaching and learning has taken on a new urgency. The phenomenal success and growth of the Khan Academy has been the primary catalyst for this discussion and demonstrated how progress in education is so often trapped by process. Converting lectures to digital assets Khan didn’t invent the idea of the flipped classroom, it was initially proposed by Lage, Platt and Treglia in their article “Inverting the Classroom: A Gateway to Creating an Inclusive Learning Environment.” The jury is still out While there’s been significant anecdotal evidence that the flipped classroom is effective, from a scholarly perspective the jury is still out and research is ongoing. The intersection between teaching, learning and technology Is it too long? 12 Brain Rules Related
