Flipped Learning Pilot Radically Reduces DFW Grade Rates in Two Courses Have you been struggling at your school with finding a way to encourage faculty to give flipped classroom techniques a try? At The College of Westchester, we found an approach that worked, and the results so far have been very encouraging. With the growing body of data supporting the effectiveness of the technique, I was eager to see faculty at my institution consider a structured approach to trying flipped teaching and learning techniques. Various instructors had been experimenting with the idea, but there was still a tentative nature to what had been done thus far. Working with CW Provost Warren Rosenberg, a small Competitive Grant was endowed, to enhance interest. Two grants of $1,000 each for two applicants were budgeted for.

The Pedagogy Problem: With a 150 minutes of class time a week, I cannot conference with kids in class and still keep the class moving forward.So I either need to move the conference process out of class time, or I need to create a way to keep the class moving forward while I conference with students.

Flipped Classroom 2.0: Competency Learning With Videos The flipped classroom model generated a lot of excitement initially, but more recently some educators — even those who were initial advocates — have expressed disillusionment with the idea of assigning students to watch instructional videos at home and work on problem solving and practice in class. Biggest criticisms: watching videos of lectures wasn’t all that revolutionary, that it perpetuated bad teaching and raised questions about equal access to digital technology. Now flipped classroom may have reached equilibrium, neither loved nor hated, just another potential tool for teachers — if done well.
4 Benefits of Blended Learning Posted on Friday November 9, 2012 by Michael Keathley Often there seems to be an “either/or” approach to taking online and face-to-face (F2F) classes. Some students may want the full campus experience of pursuing a degree at a traditional brick and mortar institution, while others want the convenience and flexibility of elearning.

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.

Key terms: Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD), More Knowledgeable Other (MKO) Instructional Design Models and Methods Instructional Design Models and Methods "Models, like myths and metaphors, help us to make sense of our world. Whether derived from whim or from serious research, a model offers its user a means of comprehending an otherwise incomprehensible problem. An instructional design model gives structure and meaning to an I.D. problem, enabling the would-be designer to negotiate her design task with a semblance of conscious understanding. Models help us to visualize the problem, to break it down into discrete, manageable units.

Ms. Murphy's World Literature Class Attention, students! Do you like to move at your own pace? Do you like to have ownership over your learning?

When the subject of the flipped class comes up, many educators see how it applies to academic subjects like math and science education, but don't realize that the methodology has applications in a wide array of other classes. According to a survey of 2358 teachers by the Flipped Learning Network and Sophia Learning (PDF, 1.2MB), 33 percent of those teachers who are flipping their classes are math teachers, 38 percent are science teachers, and 23 percent teach English language arts and social studies. But can you flip the other subjects? Can you flip an elementary classroom?
