Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Higher Education

Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Higher Education
The Flipped Classroom, as most know, has become quite the buzz in education. Its use in higher education has been given a lot of press recently. The purpose of this post is to: Provide background for this model of learning with a focus on its use in higher education.Identify some problems with its use and implementation that if not addressed, could become just a fading fad.Propose a model for implementation based on an experiential cycle of learning model. Background About the Flipped Classroom This first section provides information from various articles that describe the flipped classroom, and how it is being discussed and used in educational settings. In its simplest terms, the flipped classroom is about viewing and/or listening to lectures during one’s own time which frees up face-to-face class time for experiential exercises, group discussion, and question and answer sessions. It’s called “the flipped classroom.” Sal Khan, of the Khan Academy, states: Personal Experiences Basic Tenets Related:  self blend

Inverted Classroom in Deutschland | Informationen zum Konzept des umgedrehten Unterrichts inversée La Section Belge de l’Association Internationale de Pédagogie Universitaire (AIPU) que je préside a lancé il y a quelque temps un nouveau type d’activité : le 10 > 20 > Trente ! Le premier portait sur les Flipped Classrooms, les classes inversées. Vidéo initiale d’introduction et débat en salle. [...] L’hybridation que proposent les Flipped Classrooms est une voie intéressante pour les institutions qui se cherchent (pas trop longtemps, j’espère) ou qui cherchent une planche de salut (oui, je pense qu’on en est là) devant l’efflorescence des MOOC (la virtualisation de l’enseignement traditionnel encore trop présent) et le potentiel des PLE (Personal Learning Environment) en matière d’activités d’appropriation et d’interactivités. [...] Au travers de la question (épistémologique, historique, philosophique) du « Comment le savoir arrive-t-il aux Hommes ?

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. A compiled resource page of the Flipped Classroom (with videos and links) can be found at The advantage of the flipped classroom is that the content, often the theoretical/lecture-based component of the lesson, becomes more easily accessed and controlled by the learner. It is important, though, not to be seduced by the messenger. The problem is that educators, as a group, know how to do and use the lecture.

Flipping the Classroom Facilitates Active Learning Methods In a recent exchange in the media, the USA Today news site sensationalized a study under way at Harvey Mudd College, using the headline “‘Flipped classrooms' may not have any impact on learning“1. As the debate rolled out in the media over this, it became apparent that USA Today had taken the study and published information out of context (I know, shocking). In this commentary published the next day by Harvey Mudd teacher and study participant Darryl Yong we learn that, “the article greatly oversimplifies things by portraying our study as an attempt to answer whether flipped classrooms work or not. I am a firm believer that a key benefit of flipped instruction is that it frees up some time to enable Active Learning in the classroom. Facilitating Active Learning via ‘the Flip' Wikipedia defines Active Learning as, “an umbrella term that refers to several models of instruction that focus the responsibility of learning on learners”3.

Réfléchir avant d’inverser la classe - Faculté d'éducation 22 avril 2014 Sarah Saïdi Dans le monde de la pédagogie, deux mots circulent sur toutes les lèvres : classe inversée. La rumeur grandissante a poussé Isabelle Nizet et Florian Meyer, professeurs à la Faculté d’éducation, à tester eux-mêmes cette méthode pédagogique dans le cadre d’un cours d’évaluation du baccalauréat en enseignement au secondaire. Durant trois semaines, les étudiantes et étudiants d’Isabelle Nizet ont visionné à la maison 16 courtes capsules multimédias portant sur des concepts théoriques précis. Quant aux étudiants, ils espéraient surtout mieux comprendre la matière pour réaliser de meilleurs travaux. Par contre, plusieurs auraient voulu que la professeure valide davantage en classe leur compréhension des contenus des capsules. Tout compte fait, même si la grande majorité des étudiantes et étudiants ont apprécié l’expérience, les commentaires reçus sont plutôt polarisés : on adore ou on déteste la classe inversée. Des leçons pour le professeur Pas une recette

The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Tinkering and Maker Education If you have been following my blog series on The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture, you know that I am using this opportunity, given all the press on flipped classroom, to discuss a model of teaching and learning based on experiential education. It is a model in which authentic, often hands-on, experiences and student interests drive the learning process, and the videos, as they are being proposed in the flipped classroom discourse, support the learning rather than being central or at the core of learning. The idea of experience being core to learning has been discussed by Dale Dougherty, the publisher of Make Magazine, in the context of Maker Education: I see the power of engaging kids in science and technology through the practices of making and hands-on experiences, through tinkering and taking things apart. Schools seem to have forgotten that students learn best when they are engaged; in fact, the biggest problem in schools is boredom. Experiential Engagement: The Activity

Flipped Classroom flipped classroom oder auch inverted classroom könnte man mit "vertauschter Klassenraum" übersetzen. Im Internet findet man vor allem Lehrer aus naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern (am häufigsten Chemie) und auch Mathematik, die sich diesem Konzept verschrieben haben. Die ursprüngliche Idee ist, dass die Lehrer ihre Vorträge, die sie sonst als Frontalunterricht vor den Schülern gehalten haben, aufnehmen. Es könnte eine Live-Veranstaltung aufgenommen werden oder am Computer zu Hause die "Stunde" halten und aufnehmen, dabei am Bildschirm, ähnlich wie an einer Tafel, schreiben und mündlich erklären, um was es geht.

Flipped classroom meets MOOCs In dem folgenden Video wird das Konzept des "Flipped Claassroom"s (MMOC) gleich am Anfang von Christian Spannagel erklärt: Flipped Classroom in der Praxis Lehrvideos an Schulen Chemie Einführung des Kern-Hülle-Modells und Berechnung der Elementarteilchen Welche Elementarteilchen haben Ionen?

User Generated Education A guide to complexity and organizations Via Jay Cross is this amazing synthesis – Organize for Complexity – of how complexity affects our work and the ways in which we can change our organizational structures to account for complexity, instead or adding more complication. If you know nothing about complexity, read this. If you know a lot on the subject, keep it as a job aid or use it to help others. I like the depiction of market dynamics, to which I have added the upper image. The definition of complex systems is quite useful: Complex systems have presence or participation of living creatures. The paper includes design principles as well as “how-to” implementation suggestions. I must say that I agree with pretty much everything in this paper, so I strongly recommend it.
