Teachers' Practical Guide to A FLipped Classroom July, 2014 Unlike the numerous graphics I shared here on the topic of flipped learning which were substantially theoretically based, the one I have for you today provides a practical demonstration of how Dr.Russell flipped his classroom . The graphic also features some of the activities and procedures he drew in his flipped instruction. Another section of this graphic highlights some of the bearings of this flipped methodology on students performance particularly in terms of the enhanced test scores. The purpose behind sharing this visual is to provide you with a concrete example of how you can go about integrating a flipped learning methodology in your instruction. This is only a paradigmatic example which you can adapt with due modifications to your own teaching situation. Here are the three easy steps Dr. 1- Record 25 lectures were recorded with Echo 360, each just 35 minutes long 2- Watch Students tune in and watch video the night before class Source: Echo 360

Part 1: Flipping The Classroom? … 12 Resources To Keep You On Your Feet Welcome to another post rich in resources. If you have come here looking for links that will guide you to videos and multimedia to use in a Flipped Classroom that is coming in a future post. Perhaps you have tried a little Flip of your own and want to learn more. If you are beginning to investigate what a Flipped Classroom is, with the thought of possibly trying some kind of Flip yourself… then this is also the right place. I have researched and tried to find you the very best resources to get educators in all positions thinking about what a Flipped Classroom” really is”? Many educators are beginning to become aware of the growing teaching method referred to as “Flipping The Classroom”. You see, at first this definition does make a lot of sense, and like so many “best practices” I see great value in the idea. Yes, I am a proponent of incorporating various multimedia and online learning in a blended environment. The Twelve Resources To Better Understand Flipping the Classroom Like this:

Why Blended Learning Is Better Blended learning is a buzz word that’s been thrown around quite a bit lately and brings together the best of both classroom learning and elearning. In fact it seems to be the ideal solution all-around as it appeals to all learning styles, circumstances, needs and demands. It combines the support of classroom learning with the flexibility of elearning. Blended learning has been defined by Innosight Institute as “a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online delivery of content and instruction with some element of student control over time, place, path or pace.” Blended learning however largely depends on the technical resources with which the learning experience is delivered - these tools need to be up to date, reliable, and user-friendly in order to have a meaningful impact. So, why choose blended learning over elearning, or face-to-face? This great post on why blended learning works spells it all out. Application in the corporate setting Resources

A New Awesome Visual on Flipped Classroom A few days ago I published here a post featuring a host of interesting video clips explaining the concept of flipped classroom together with providing some examples on how others have been employing it in their classrooms. Today, I come across this awesome graphic entitled " What Is A Flipped Classroom " and thought it might be a good addition to the flipped learning resource page here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Flipped classroom or flipped learning is a methodology, an approach to learning in which technology is employed to reverse the traditional role of classroom time. If in the past, classroom time is spent at lecturing to students , now in a flipped model, this time is utilized to encourage individualized learning and provide one-on-one help to students, and also to improve student-teacher interaction. Check it out the full visual from this page.

8 Crucial Resources For Flipped Classrooms YouTube This might be the most popular tool teachers have used for flipped instruction. I thought about why and came up with a few reasons. You don’t have to establish a class list to allow for student discussion. Other services, such as those that approximate a LMS, require a lot of preparation before a teacher can use it. You can edit the video online (somewhat). Evernote Tutorial as a Cartoon Trim and stabilizeSwap audio tracksChange the look of the video (for instance, make it look like a cartoon)Add annotationsAdd captionsDownload the new version of the video for offline use It’s easy to share with colleagues, friends, and professional development organizations. I would assume that teachers might want to share their videos with other teachers or use them when they present at professional development conferences. Edmodo, Moodle, and Schoology I put these three services in alphabetical order, not in order of preference. Edmodo Schoology I like to think of Moodle as “old school.” iPad Apps

The inverted calculus course and self-regulated learning - Casting Out Nines A few weeks ago I began a series to review the Calculus course that Marcia Frobish and I taught using the inverted/flipped class design, back in the Fall. I want to pick up the thread here about the unifying principle behind the course, which is the concept of self-regulated learning. Self-regulated learning is what it sounds like: Learning that is initiated, managed, and assessed by the learners themselves. An instructor can play a role in this process, so it’s not the same thing as teaching yourself a subject (although all successful autodidacts are self-regulating learners), but it refers to how the individual learner approaches learning tasks. For example, take someone learning about optimization problems in calculus. Four things describe how a self-regulating learner approaches this topic. The learner works actively on optimization problems as the primary form of learning. Back to the story about calculus. Image: “Creative independence”,

This is Why Flipped Learning is Important for your Students I just came across this great video ( less than 3 minutes long ) about flipped learning. This is basically a successful case in which flipped classroom helped students learn better. I am really amazed at how the teacher in the video managed to shift direct instruction out of his class and turn his class time with students into work time, engaging them in some higher order thinking . He records his lessons and tutorials and share them with students online. Students then watch them at home at their own learning pace and come to school for more directions and help. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has also featured some previous posts and guides on how teachers can apply the concept of flipped classroom in their teaching, check out this resource to learn more.

16 Flipped Classrooms In Action Right Now Flipped classrooms require educators to reconstruct traditional classrooms by sending lectures home and providing more face-to-face time at school, but elementary- through university-level instructors are finding good reasons to try them out. Frequently traced back to Colorado teachers Aaron Sams and JonathanBergmann, who were quick to experiment with posting videos online in 2008, the flipped classroom concept is small, simple and has shown positive results. The general idea is that students work at their own pace, receiving lectures at home via online video or podcasts and then devoting class time to more in-depth discussion and traditional “homework.” Where: Clear Brook High School, Harris County, Texas At the beginning of the school year, geometry teacher Leticia Allred told her Pre-AP Geometry class at Texas’ Clear Brook High School that their only homework would be watching 15-minute YouTube videos and taking notes. Where: Wausau West High School, Wasau, Wis.

FLN Shares its Four Pillars of Flipped Learning Flipped Learning | News FLN Shares its Four Pillars of Flipped Learning To counter common misconceptions and offer educators a practical framework for Flipped Learning, the governing board and key leaders of the Flipped Learning Network (FLN) today announced a formal definition of the term. The FLN definition of Flipped Learning is the following: "Flipped Learning is a pedagogical approach in which direct instruction moves from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment where the educator guides students as they apply concepts and engage creatively in the subject matter." Along with the definition, FLN announced its Four Pillars of F-L-I-P and a checklist of 11 supporting indicators for educators. Flexible Environment Educators can create flexible spaces in which students choose when and where they learn. Learning Culture Intentional Content Professional Educator About the Author
