Five-Minute Film Festival: Flipped Classrooms

Five-Minute Film Festival: Flipped Classrooms
I really enjoyed Mary Beth Hertz's excellent blog published earlier this week, "The Flipped Classroom: Pro and Con" -- one of the most concise and balanced views I've read on the buzz-wordy concept of flipping the classroom. Advocates say that "flipped classrooms" help overburdened teachers differentiate their instruction to reach more learners, provide an avenue into more hands-on and student-driven learning during classtime, and shift the teacher's role from "sage on the stage" to learning coach and facilitator. Critics say it's just a fad, relies too heavily on rote instruction, and doesn't go far enough in making the needed changes for teaching and learning reform. I've rounded up this list of videos so you can learn more about the challenges and benefits of flipped classrooms.

How to create a 'flipped' video lecture for at-home study Math teacher Stacey Roshan creates video lectures that her students watch at home or on mobile devices. Photo by Mike Fritz/ PBS NewsHour Stacey Roshan, a math teacher at the Bullis School in Potomac, Md., does it at her dining room table and sometimes on the sofa. Andy Kastl and his colleagues at suburban Detroit’s Clintondale High School do it in a sparse room in a corner of their school. What are they doing? Recording lectures for students to watch at home or on their mobile phones as part of the flipped classroom approach to teaching.

The Global Classroom Project: Building Commmunity We’re always interested in programs that help teachers and their students connect with each other. So when I heard about the Global Classroom Project I asked Michael Graffin to write a blog post to tell us more. About the Global Classroom Project The flip: Classwork at home, homework in class Today, the 48-year-old helps teachers around the world “flip” their classrooms. Last week, he was at Harvard Law School talking about the virtues of flipping. A book he and Sams wrote, “Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day,” is coming out in June, and Bergmann is planning the fifth annual conference on Flipped Learning this summer. He and Sams also are launching a nonprofit organization to train teachers in the concept. He is now the lead technology facilitator for the Joseph Sears School in Kenilworth, Ill. Here are excerpts of conversations I had with Bergmann on the phone and by e-mail:

Quite simply, they’re a setup where the teacher acts more like an adviser than a lecturer. It lets the students have a more hands-on approach to education. Since this is Edudemic and we heart technology, we thought it might be helpful to figure out what some of the best technology is for flipped classrooms .

Fair use guidelines for educational multimedia Fair use guidelines for educational multimedia These guidelines were developed during the CONFU process. For a full explanation of their status, see Confu: The conference on fair use. The Flipped Classroom: Pro and Con In 2012, I attended the ISTE conference in San Diego, CA. While I was only there for about 36 hours, it was easy for me to pick up on one of the hottest topics for the three-day event. The "flipped classroom" was being discussed in social lounges, in conference sessions, on the exhibit floor, on the hashtag and even at dinner. People wanted to know what it was, what it wasn't, how it's done and why it works. Others wanted to sing its praises and often included a vignette about how it works in their classroom and how it transformed learning for their students.

With flipped learning, how to make sure students are doing the work In-video quizzes answer the question: ‘Who is doing their homework?’ and help direct the focus of class By Stacey Roshan Read more by Contributor June 10th, 2013 Stacey Roshan has found that flipping her math class leads to more powerful classroom interactions. In the three years that my advanced math classes have been flipped, I have been able to get to know my students, as individuals, better than I have ever been able to before. My goal is always to make the classroom feel a little more like play, while still maintaining rigor.
