Flipping the Classroom Facilitates Active Learning Methods – Experiential, Project Based, Problem Based, Inquiry Based, Constructivism, Etc.

Flipping the Classroom Facilitates Active Learning Methods – Experiential, Project Based, Problem Based, Inquiry Based, Constructivism, Etc.
In a recent exchange in the media, the USA Today news site sensationalized a study under way at Harvey Mudd College, using the headline “‘Flipped classrooms' may not have any impact on learning“1. As the debate rolled out in the media over this, it became apparent that USA Today had taken the study and published information out of context (I know, shocking). In this commentary published the next day by Harvey Mudd teacher and study participant Darryl Yong we learn that, “the article greatly oversimplifies things by portraying our study as an attempt to answer whether flipped classrooms work or not. That kind of research question is too blunt to be useful.”2 I am a firm believer that a key benefit of flipped instruction is that it frees up some time to enable Active Learning in the classroom. Facilitating Active Learning via ‘the Flip' Of course, going down this path doesn't happen without learning, planning, and effort, so I strongly advocate easing into flipped instruction. 1. 2. 3. 5.

Méthodes Compétences Outils Ma classe inversée C. 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. Classrooms become laboratories or studios, and yet content delivery is preserved. 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 Flipped Classroom Model Experiential Engagement: The Activity Summary

Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Higher Education The Flipped Classroom, as most know, has become quite the buzz in education. Its use in higher education has been given a lot of press recently. The purpose of this post is to: Provide background for this model of learning with a focus on its use in higher education.Identify some problems with its use and implementation that if not addressed, could become just a fading fad.Propose a model for implementation based on an experiential cycle of learning model. Background About the Flipped Classroom This first section provides information from various articles that describe the flipped classroom, and how it is being discussed and used in educational settings. In its simplest terms, the flipped classroom is about viewing and/or listening to lectures during one’s own time which frees up face-to-face class time for experiential exercises, group discussion, and question and answer sessions. It’s called “the flipped classroom.” Sal Khan, of the Khan Academy, states: Personal Experiences Basic Tenets

An Animated Introduction to the Feminist Philosophy of Simone de Beauvoir How influential are the writings of Simone de Beauvoir? So influential that even the rushed, by all accounts shoddy first English translation (executed by a zoologist not especially acquainted with philosophy, and only somewhat more so with the French language) of her book Le deuxième sexe became, in 1953, The Second Sex. Though not properly translated until 2009, it nevertheless provided the foundation for modern feminist thought in the West. But what, if we can ask this question surely at least a couple of "waves" of feminism later, did de Beauvoir, born 109 years ago today, actually think? She thought, as the Harry Shearer-narrated History of Ideas animation from the BBC and Open University above puts it, that "a woman isn’t born a woman, rather she becomes one," meaning that "there is no way women have to be, no given femininity, no ideal to which all women should conform." A bold declaration, especially at the time. Related Content:

A guide to complexity and organizations Via Jay Cross is this amazing synthesis – Organize for Complexity – of how complexity affects our work and the ways in which we can change our organizational structures to account for complexity, instead or adding more complication. If you know nothing about complexity, read this. If you know a lot on the subject, keep it as a job aid or use it to help others. I like the depiction of market dynamics, to which I have added the upper image. The definition of complex systems is quite useful: Complex systems have presence or participation of living creatures. The paper includes design principles as well as “how-to” implementation suggestions. I must say that I agree with pretty much everything in this paper, so I strongly recommend it.

The Quickest Guide to Run a Complex Term Search on DBP’s PRPM | Translate English to Malay Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka’s PRPM is the first and ultimate tool for an English/Bahasa Melayu translator like me. However, in the earliest days, searching for lexical meaning of a word or term was rather daunting. One has to go to advanced search page, or one level down to do complex searches. In a course attended last year, a senior translator showed the class how to use it smartly, and probably the quickest (and dirtiest!) way to do complex search. Here it is: Go to DBP’s PRPM site.Key in your term, an English term, say ‘translate‘ in the search box.Click CARI (or search) button. At the page’s breadcrumb, the link for ‘Khidmat Nasihat‘ is also the most important link. You can run similar technique if you are using your Kamus Pro app on Android or iOS device. This eases a translator’s work somehow.

Chronic Absenteeism: An Old Problem in Search of New Answers A recent report by the U.S. Department of Education (USED) identifies “chronic absenteeism” as a hidden educational crisis. [1] In 2013-14, roughly 14 percent of students nationwide were chronically absent—defined as missing 10 percent or more of school days, excused or unexcused, which in most states would correspond to about 18 days of school missed each year. [2] In some cities, that rate is considerably higher, with Detroit topping the list at 57.3 percent of students chronically absent. [3] Absenteeism is not a new concern, however. Educators and local officials were focused on this issue as early as the late 19th century—a quarter of the juveniles jailed at the Chicago House of Correction in 1898 were there for truancy. [4] From Tom Sawyer to Ferris Bueller, truancy has been a staple of popular culture in the U.S. The consequences of chronic absenteeism Chronic absenteeism is associated with a host of adverse academic outcomes.

Flipped Classroom flipped classroom oder auch inverted classroom könnte man mit "vertauschter Klassenraum" übersetzen. Im Internet findet man vor allem Lehrer aus naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern (am häufigsten Chemie) und auch Mathematik, die sich diesem Konzept verschrieben haben. Die ursprüngliche Idee ist, dass die Lehrer ihre Vorträge, die sie sonst als Frontalunterricht vor den Schülern gehalten haben, aufnehmen. Es könnte eine Live-Veranstaltung aufgenommen werden oder am Computer zu Hause die "Stunde" halten und aufnehmen, dabei am Bildschirm, ähnlich wie an einer Tafel, schreiben und mündlich erklären, um was es geht. Die Filme oder Screencasts werden im Internet zur Verfügung gestellt und die Schüler haben als Hausaufgabe, sich diese Filme anzuschauen. Was ist der Flipped bzw. Flipped classroom meets MOOCs In dem folgenden Video wird das Konzept des "Flipped Claassroom"s (MMOC) gleich am Anfang von Christian Spannagel erklärt: Flipped Classroom in der Praxis Lehrvideos an Schulen Chemie Geschichte

Free eBook - How Gamification Reshapes Learning By B. Santhosh Kumar We, human beings, are natural ‘gamers’! In our childhood, we freely exhibit and experience our liking for games. However, when we grow up, while some of us are lucky enough to carry this interest forward, others let go of it due to various reasons. Those of us who think we’re not for games, are actually (unknowingly) engaging with interesting elements of gamification while interacting with social networking sites and others (in the form of Progress Bars, Likes, Ratings, etc.). In my two decades of career in Learning Design (in the role of researching, designing, managing, and delivering ‘learning’ for some of the best known schools, institutions, and organizations worldwide), I’ve experienced the magical power of gamification in learning, and was lucky enough to work on opportunities to tap its power to help make learning ‘fun’ and ‘engaging’ (for kids and for adults, in face-to-face sessions and in online learning courses).
