Khan Academy 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.

Students use StudentChomps Marketing - Western Michigan Personal narrative plays an important role in Mike Garver’s teaching style. Garver, a professor of marketing at Central Michigan University, often uses anecdotes from his own life in his lectures, according to one of his students. “It’s a good way to, in his words, ‘Put a movie in your mind,’ ” says Mike Hoover, a senior at Central Michigan, who is currently taking Garver’s course in market research. So when I ask Garver about his efforts to excise the lecture from the classroom and blow it to smithereens, he naturally begins telling me a story. In this one, it’s 1998, and Garver is fresh out of grad school and into his first teaching job, at Western Carolina University. He’s giving a lecture on “the principles of marketing” to 100 students. “I gave one of the best lectures I had ever given,” Garver says. After class, Garver remembers his supervisor affirming the young lecturer’s confidence -- before blowing it apart. I tell Garver it’s obvious that he is in marketing.

Five Ways to Flip Your Classroom With The New York Times Jim Wilson/The New York TimesSalman Khan in the offices of his company, Khan Academy, in Mountain View, Calif. His math lessons are popular on YouTube.Go to related article » What is a “flipped classroom”? It’s an “inverted” teaching structure in which instructional content is delivered outside class, and engagement with the content – skill development and practice, projects and the like – is done in class, under teacher guidance and in collaboration with peers. A flipped class swaps explanation and lecture, which are usually given in the classroom, with homework activities like math problem sets or writing practice activities. Usually, teachers flipping their classrooms convey content using technology tools like videos, podcasts or PowerPoint presentations, which students explore on their own time. Sometimes teachers create lectures and other resources themselves using resources like Teacher Tube, the Show Me app or a voice recording tool. ‘Flip’ a Learning Network Lesson
How Khan Academy Is Changing the Rules of Education | Magazine Matthew Carpenter, age 10, has completed 642 inverse trigonometry problems at KhanAcademy.org.Photo: Joe Pugliese “This,” says Matthew Carpenter, “is my favorite exercise.” I peer over his shoulder at his laptop screen to see the math problem the fifth grader is pondering. Carpenter, a serious-faced 10-year-old wearing a gray T-shirt and an impressive black digital watch, pauses for a second, fidgets, then clicks on “0 degrees.” Carpenter, who attends Santa Rita Elementary, a public school in Los Altos, California, shouldn’t be doing work anywhere near this advanced. But last November, Thordarson began using Khan Academy in her class. Initially, Thordarson thought Khan Academy would merely be a helpful supplement to her normal instruction. “I’m able to give specific, pinpointed help when needed,” she says. The result is that Thordarson’s students move at their own pace. For years, teachers like Thordarson have complained about the frustrations of teaching to the “middle” of the class.
rejecting the "flip" (1) ending required sameness (3) re-thinking rigor (4) its not about 1:1 (5) start to dream again (6) learning to be a society (again) (7) re-thinking what "literature" means (8) maths are creative, maths are not arithmetic (9) changing rooms (10) undoing academic time (11) social networks beyond Zuckerbergism (12) knowing less about students, seeing more (13) why we fight Maybe I'm highly sensitive to this. I grew up in a 420 square foot home with two parents and four kids. This was not a place for the calm production of homework. Now, yes, I had two university educated parents, smart, dedicated parents who did whatever they could, but both worked or went to school or both, and if my older siblings were struggling to help the "dumb little brother" with his homework, obviously, they weren't doing their own. Anyway, this is not to be confused with an Oprah-style faux memoir, that's not the point. So in changing gears for this new year, step two is "rejecting the flipped classroom."
Flipped classrooms give every student a chance to succeed by Greg Green, Special to CNN Editor’s note: Greg Green is the principal at Clintondale High School in Clinton Township, Michigan. I’m a principal at Clintondale High, a financially challenged school near Detroit. I’m in charge of doing my best to make sure that Clintondale students get the best education possible when they walk through our doors. There are constant hurdles to making this happen. Every year, our failure rates have been through the roof. It’s no surprise that these issues are happening in our schools. To watch this happen every day, where it is your responsibility to try to provide the very best you can for the students, is beyond frustrating. Our staff agreed that our failure rates were not good. How do you get your staff on board with change you want to implement, but no one else has ever tried it on a mass scale? You flip it. At Clintondale High School, our education model wasn’t working, and the people suffering most were students.
Uni of Norther Col Helping Flip UNC's Mathematics and Science Teaching Institute is at the forefront of a growing trend in secondary education that's changing how many middle and high school students are learning. Three years ago, Jerry Overmyer, MAST's outreach coordinator, did a simple Google search for the latest ideas in education and technology. You could say the rest of the story is history, but actually it's a new teaching model that literally flips the standard classroom setting and may be the way of the future. Using the "flipped classroom" model, teachers create and post vodcasts - online video lectures - that students watch outside of class, and then questions are answered and homework is completed in class. Since much of MAST's work involves providing teaching resources for K-12 educators, the concept of flipped classrooms advocated since 2007 by two science teachers at Woodland Park (Colo.) "It's a very dynamic definition and can mean so many things," Overmyer said. - Elizabeth Same, Junior Journalism Major
