Med Skype lyfter vi taket på klassrummet - Sara Bruun Skype in the classroom är en väldigt bra tjänst för att ta göra din undervisning global. Du behöver skapa ett vanligt Skypekonto på skype.com och ett konto på Skype for education. Ditt Skypekonto använder du för att logga in på Skype for education. Det jag och mina elever började med är Mystery Skype. Det är en modern variant av det gamla hederliga spelet "20 frågor". Om man känner sig osäker och aldrig provat kan man alltid börja med en skola i Sverige. Ett par saker behöver ni tänka på innan ni börjar: Du behöver en dator eller surfplatta med kamera och helst en projektor. En välförberedd Mystery Skypelektion tar ungefär 30 minuter att genomföra och brukar vara mycket uppskattat bland eleverna. Det man också kan göra är att registrera sig för olika Skypelektioner. Efter jullovet introducerade jag boken "The Absolutly True Diary of a Part-time Indian", av Sherman Alexie, för mina 9:or. Han var väldigt entusiastisk och talade en tydlig engelska. /Sara

I had to give this gift to myself because I am the only one who shows Apple the love in my house. It's pretty safe to say that I am completely enamored by my brand new iPad, and mostly it's for reasons other than allowing me to Facebook and tweet from the comfort of my couch. As other teachers who have used iPads for years already know, there are some very cool educational apps out there, and recently I have been exploring various screencasting apps to record lessons for my classroom. I have also had tons of fun playing with all of them over the winter break, screencasting from my couch about goofy things (mostly involving my two glorified throw-rugs of dogs) with my husband shaking his head at me from his armchair. I have listed some of the apps I have found below with a brief review of their pros and cons. Explain Everything ($2.99)This is one of my favorites. Update:
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. 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.

The Active Class » Blog Archive » “Flipping” your classroom When I talk to people about education reform — about doing innovative things like using clickers and peer instruction, or interactive demonstrations, or small group work, a lot of instructors balk. How can I give up that much lecture time? We have a lot to cover.Students don’t do the reading — so they’re not able to discuss the material yet, they’re starting from scratch. One great solution to this is called Flipping the Classroom. But that leaves the toughest part — applying the ideas to homework and problems — to students, struggling on their own. The flipped classroom is one answer to that. “I no longer go to work to ‘perform’ five times a day; instead, I look forward to going [to class] and interacting with my students all day,” says high school teacher Jonathan Bergmann, who along with Aaron Sams has been actively promoting the idea of the flipped classroom in high school.

NYSCATE-FLN 2013 Harvey Mudd professors' research suggests 'flipped' classes might not be worth the hassle The concept of the "flipped classroom" has become the education world's darling within the past few years. In a flipped classroom, students watch their professors' lectures online before class, while spending class time working on hands-on, "real world" problems. The potential of the model has many educators thrilled — it could be the end of vast lecture halls, students falling asleep and boring, monotone professors. But four professors at Harvey Mudd College in Claremont, Calif. who are studying the effectiveness of a flipped classroom have bad news for advocates of the trend: it might not make any difference. On Oct. 1, professors Nancy Lape, Karl Haushalter, Rachel Levy and Darryl Yong received funding for a three-year, $199,544 grant from the National Science Foundation to study the effects of the flipped classroom on students' learning. While Lape stresses that their preliminary research is just that — preliminary — she says the benefits of flipping a classroom are dubious.
10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom 10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom by Mike Acedo Many of us can recall instances in our lives where we found ourselves idly sitting in a classroom, eyes glazed over, half listening to our teacher as they lectured in front of the room. These scenes are all too familiar in today’s schools, as the traditional model of learning has primarily revolved around a teacher-centered classroom, where instructors focus on conveying information, assigning work, and leaving it to the students to master the material. The main goal of a flipped classroom is to enhance student learning and achievement by reversing the traditional model of a classroom, focusing class time on student understanding rather than on lecture. There are numerous potential advantages to this style of learning. The Pros 1. In a flipped classroom, it is possible for students to have increased input and control over their own learning. 2. 3. 4. 5. utside the classroom doing homework. The Cons 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Conclusion

My First Flip...and a Flipped Day discount on Snagit! On September 6th, 2013, the Flipped Learning Network hosted the first Flip Your Classroom Day. On Flipped Day, educators across the globe pledged to flip one lesson and experience Flipped Learning. Over the past few years, the flipped classroom model has really taken off in classrooms around the world. This model of teaching and learning has proved to be incredibly valuable to both teachers and students. It allows teachers to spend more time working with their students in the classroom, while allowing students to take control of their own learning and work at a pace that is most comfortable to them. In honor of Flipped Day, we wanted to show teachers just how easy it is to get started by flipping a lesson. Step 1. To get started, we invite you to watch the video below. Can’t see the video? Notice the video and audio isn’t perfect, it doesn’t include a ton of flashy features, and it isn’t lengthy. Step 2. The first thing you need to do, is identify a lesson you would like to flip.
