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.

Flipping the classroom | Giovanni Bonaiuti Da qualche tempo, in rete, si parla con insistenza di “flipped classroom model”. Il nome è intrigante ed ho pensato valesse la pena provare a capire meglio… Si tratta di una modalità di insegnamento (supportata da tecnologie) in cui si invertono i tempi e i modi di lavoro. Non è tanto la classe ad essere “capovolta” quanto il normale schema di lavoro in classe. Tipicamente, infatti, si ha un primo momento in cui l’insegnante spiega (fa “lezione”) seguito da un secondo momento in cui agli studenti sono assegnati problemi da risolvere tipicamente da svolgere a casa (i “compiti a casa”). Modello tradizionale Modello “flipped classroom” In altre parole l’insegnante si troverà ad investire il suo tempo nell’accompagnare allo sviluppo ed estensione delle conoscenze, alla loro trasformazione in capacità concrete. Nel video sotto “Why I Flipped My Classroom”, questa insegnante – Katie Gimbar – illustra i motivi per cui ha deciso di “ribaltare” l’insegnamento della matematica nella propria classe.

Flipped Learning Resources Explain Everything X 4 Ways When it comes to flexible iPad apps, nothing quite fits the bill like Explain Everything. Developed as a screencasting app (in my opinion, the best in the app store), I have recently found that I am using the app for anything but screencasting. 1. Image / Poster / Graphic / Diagram Creator: The way I find myself using Explain Everything these days is as a platform to create images or posters. 2. One of the most underutilized features in Explain Everything is the magnifying glass tool in the left hand menu. *Bonus Idea: Students can use the zooming feature when screencasting in Explain Everything as well. 3. With a combination of Explain Everything and Reflector that is running on a MacBook or PC Laptop, Explain Everything becomes a blank canvas that can be manipulated anywhere in the classroom. 4. Explain Everything has the ability to open a number of file types using the iPad “open in” feature.

» Doceri and the Flipped Classroom: Audio/video screencasting coming this Spring Freedom to Teach The popularity of the Kahn Academy educational video library has moved the concept of the flipped classroom to the forefront of educational technology discussion over the past year. The resulting paradigm shift moves direct learning from the classroom to the student’s computer – outside of class – via videos that cover the basic lesson material. This flipped classroom model frees the instructor to use class time for project-based learning and meaningful interaction about the material. While instructors in higher education as well as the K-12 level are using standard videos made available by Kahn and others, there is an increasing desire among instructors to create their own screencasts – also called vodcasts – for use by their students and shared by other faculty. Incorporating audio/video screencasting into Doceri was a natural progression. The new version of Doceri will allow recording of audio and video simultaneously like basic apps on the market.
