Flipped Learning: A Response To Five Common Criticisms

Flipped Learning: A Response To Five Common Criticisms
Over the past two years, the Flipped Learning method has created quite a stir. Some argue that this teaching method will completely transform education, while others say it is simply an opportunity for boring lectures to be viewed in new locations. While the debate goes on, the concept of Flipped Learning is not entirely new. Dr. Eric Mazur of Harvard University has been researching this type of learning since the early ’90s, and other educators have been applying pieces of the Flipped Learning method for even longer. It is our opinion that one of the reasons this debate exists is because there is no true definition of what Flipped Learning is. With the above framework in mind, we tapped Twitter to learn what educators say are the downsides to implementing the Flipped Learning method, and we have provided our opinions that address the five major criticisms. Implementing the Flipped Learning method makes me, as the teacher, much less important. This could not be further from the truth!

The Flipped Class: Myths vs. Reality Editor's Note: On the heels of our viral posts in over 100 countries about the flipped classroom earlier this year (links below), we asked Jon Bergmann if he could share some of the feedback he was receiving in light of the notable interest about this topic. The timing couldn't have been more perfect since he was about to leave for a conference about you-guessed-it, the flipped class. Here is Part 1 of our three part series The Daily Riff. See Part 2 and 3 links below. - C.J. Westerberg The Flipped Class: What it is and What it is Not by Jon Bergmann, Jerry Overmyer and Brett Wilie There has been a lot of interest in the flipped classroom. The traditional definition of a flipped class is: The Flipped Classroom is NOT: A synonym for online videos. Originally published The Daily Riff July 2011 Jon Bergmann is one of the first teachers to flip his classroom and has recently co-authored a book on the the Flipped Class which is to be published by ISTE press.

Flip your classroom through reverse instruction Have you ever experienced the unique and rare moment when, after doing something the same way for year and years, you have an epiphany and wonder, "why am I doing it this way?" Most of the time the answer is tradition, that's the way we've always done it. At one time, there probably was a sound, logical, reasonable explanation for the decision to do it that way. I stumbled across an interesting article in THE Journal a little over a year ago and had a moment like I described above. Sams and Bergman were the first people, to my knowledge, to suggest the idea of "reverse instruction." Last year I began implementing reverse instruction into my high school Anatomy & Physiology class. With class time liberated from lectures I was able to incorporate more hands-on activities, projects, and helping students better understand confusing and challenging concepts. I would not say that my first year was a complete success. Reverse Instruction Resources:

Les huit éléments essentiels d'un bon plan de cours Beth Lewis fait partie de ces blogueurs américains qui ne craignent pas de rappeler les évidences. Enseignante au primaire, elle propose ainsi sur son blogue un billet intitulé "Top 8 Components of a Well-Written Lesson Plan" que l'on traduira par "Les huit éléments essentiels d'un bon plan de cours". Le modèle, même s'il est loin d'être original, mérite d'être adopté ou adapté à ses propres pratiques. les enseignants débutants y trouveront un guide rassurant, et les plus expérimentés l'adopteront pour publier leurs fiches de cours, notamment sur la toile. Le plan de cours proposé par Beth Lewis comprend les éléments suivants : Objectifs et buts (Objectives and Goals). Ils doivent être clairs et surtout, liés aux programmes et instructions officiels. Chaque point fait l'objet d'explications détaillées, assorties d'exemples, sur une page spécifique. Un gabarit de plan de cours, très simple, est téléchargeable sur la page.

3 keys to a flipped classroom If you are planning to use the ‘flipped classroom’, then you might want to think about a few key ideas. Background: On Connected Principals Jonathan Martin has written a couple posts on the Flipped Classroom. In his first one, Reverse Instruction: Dan Pink and Karl’s “Fisch Flip”, he says: Increasingly, education’s value-add is and will be in the coaching and troubleshooting when students are applying their learning, and in challenging students to apply their thinking to hands-on learning by doing and teaming: so let’s have them do these things in class, not sit and listen. And in his second post, Advancing the Flip: Developments in Reverse Instruction, he says: 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. And also contrary to my points below… Dr. 1. 2. 3. Dr.
