See our other links related to the flipped class below this guest post. Since this post was written, Bergmann and Sams have released their book, Flip your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day. How the Flipped Classroom was Born by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams In 2004, we both started teaching at Woodland Park High School in Woodland Park, Colorado. "And how the Flipped Classroom changes the way teachers talk with parents And then one day our world changed. Flipping Increases Student Interaction One of the greatest benefits of flipping is that overall interaction increases: Teacher to student and student to student. Since the role of the teacher has changed, to more of a tutor than a deliverer of content, we have the privilege of observing students interact with each other. Are you Ready to Flip?

IPad = Flipped Classroom Made Easy Yes, the Flipped Classroom (Video lessons watched before class time) is a fashionable topic but whilst there’s still chalk-and-talk together with standardised testing I feel I must continue to push it. And no, it’s not just chalk-and-talk in disguise. It creates a whole new learning environment for the student. I haven’t taught a whole class for 6 months! Flipping my classroom has changed my career. Why should all teachers flip their classroom? Online videos should replace all whole-class teaching because: Not every student listens to teachers when surrounded by distractionsStudents understand at differing levels when lessons are one-offsSome students need the teaching at a different pace (both faster or slower) to what’s delivered in the classroom. So here’s my workflow for those who are interested 1. 2. 3.

Flipped Classroom: Beyond the Videos Last week, I read an interesting blog post by Shelley Blake-Plock titled “The Problem with TED ed.” It got me thinking about the flipped classroom model and how it is being defined. As a blended learning enthusiast, I have played with the flipped classroom model, seen presentations by inspiring educators who flip their classrooms, and even have a chapter dedicated to this topic in my book. However, I am disheartened to hear so many people describe the flipped classroom as a model where teachers must record videos or podcasts for students to view at home. There are many teachers who do not want to record videos either because they don’t have the necessary skills or equipment, their classes don’t include a lot of lecture that can be captured in recordings, or they are camera shy. Too often the conversation surrounding the flipped classroom focuses on the videos- creating them, hosting them, and assessing student understanding of the content via simple questions or summary assignments. 1. 2.

Learning Platform - itslearning | Case story: Flipped classroom Elisabeth Engum records herself explaining a maths concept for her students and posts the video on itslearning. She asks her students to watch the video at home in the evening, and in class the next day the students complete exercises related to the video. They work together or individually while Elisabeth moves between students helping them solve the equations. Flipping the traditional classroom This is the flipped classroom in action. And you don’t have to have great video recording skills to practice it. The process has countless benefits for both Elisabeth and her students. Giving students control of their learning "Traditional teaching with the chalkboard requires very little of students. “On the other hand, students really like being able to see lessons over again and there is more time for instruction during class. Combining the physical and the virtual world One of the keys to succeeding with the flipped classroom is combining the physical and virtual classrooms.

FlippedLearning - EduVision Finding the right resource to support flipped classrooms in the UK What if traditional methods of classroom teaching and ‘homework’ were switched? Teaching professionals have constantly looked at improving ways of raising learner engagement and attainment. While some have fared better than others, it is technology that has offered the greatest scope for innovation, helping the teacher to spend more time supporting students directly rather than instructing them from the front of the class. Flipped or reversed teaching is not a new concept; it dates back to the early nineties where it was trialled in a study on Peer Instruction at Harvard University. The basis of Professor Eric Mazur’s study was to integrate computer software into the classroom in order to allow the teacher to act as a coach rather than a lecturer. Today, the purpose of flipped learning has not changed. The one significant change since the 1990s, however, has been the advance in sophisticated classroom resources. What effect has this had on traditional teaching techniques?

Educator, Learner — www.brianbennett.org — Readability The following is a co-post from The Daily Riff on what a good flipped classroom looks like: The Flipped Class What Does a Good One Look Like? “The classroom environment and learning culture play a large role in determining the best pedagogical strategy.” by Brian Bennett, Jason Kern, April Gudenrath and Philip McIntosh The idea of the flipped class started with lecture and direct instruction being done at home via video and/or audio, and what was once considered homework is done in class. Now, it is becoming much more than that. The main reason, maybe the only reason, to flip a class is to provide more class time for learning and that is the major shift that we are seeing as the flip gains popularity across content areas. A lot of flipped class discussions focus on moving away from a traditional lecture format. Switching from a traditional classroom to a flipped classroom can be daunting because there are a lack of effective models.

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.
