Mobile Learning and the Inverted Classroom (#EDUSprint) Number four on my list of five types of mobile learning is the use of mobile devices (smart phones, tablets, and such) as platforms for delivery course content. Frankly, I find that educational technology people often focus too much on this type of mobile learning, and I’ve argued that mobile learning involves much more than just content delivery. So as I continue my #EDUSprint blog series on mobile learning, I’m hesitant to give too much attention to “mobile learning type 4.” However, I think I’ve got an angle on this topic that will add something useful to the conversation… I first heard about what some call the inverted classroom from Harvard physics professor Eric Mazur. He’s the one who coined the term peer instruction to describe a certain kind of in-class small group work that involves having students discuss and answer clicker questions. Mazur’s approach made a lot of sense to me, and I’ve been using it in my math courses for years now. What about you?

The Flipped Classroom FAQ | CIRTL Network Twelve months ago, had I asked just about anyone on my campus about the idea of the “flipped classroom,” they would have looked at me wondering what I was talking about. A lot has changed in the last year, however, thanks in large part to stories in the Chronicle of Higher Education about the flipped classroom approach and related technologies. Now I regularly have faculty members bring up the idea and ask me what I think about it. However, there are many who haven’t heard about the flipped classroom, and many who have heard about it have a particular set of misconceptions about it. What is the flipped classroom? Why the term “flipped”? The usual approach: The flipped approach: Why flip one’s classroom? Another argument for flipping is from the perspective of instructors who want to include more active learning exercises in their classes, but worry they can’t find the class time. How do you make sure students come to class prepared? What technology is required to flip one’s classroom?

Flipping the Classroom Printable Version “Flipping the classroom” has become something of a buzzword in the last several years, driven in part by high profile publications in The New York Times (Fitzpatrick, 2012); The Chronicle of Higher Education (Berrett, 2012); and Science (Mazur, 2009); In essence, “flipping the classroom” means that students gain first exposure to new material outside of class, usually via reading or lecture videos, and then use class time to do the harder work of assimilating that knowledge, perhaps through problem-solving, discussion, or debates. Bloom's Taxonomy (Revised)In terms of Bloom’s revised taxonomy (2001), this means that students are doing the lower levels of cognitive work (gaining knowledge and comprehension) outside of class, and focusing on the higher forms of cognitive work (application, analysis, synthesis, and/or evaluation) in class, where they have the support of their peers and instructor.

How to Start a Blog (Easy Free Beginner's Guide for 2016) - The Blog Starter 34 Diverse Blended Learning Apps For iPad 34 Diverse Blended Learning Apps For iPad This post is promoted by the app X-Mirage, software that allows you to mirror content between your iPad & Mac, and record the displayed content. Blended learning is a potentially powerful way of mixing the power of asynchronous access with face-to-face facilitation and instruction. It’s this mixing of old and new that makes it tempting for many schools and districts wanting to dip their toes in the water of eLearning and far-reaching technology access while still depending on the expertise and training of human teachers. But it’s this combination–and subsequent flexibility–that also makes it a challenge to setup. We even included a sock puppet app, because we like sock puppets.

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. 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 problem is that educators, as a group, know how to do and use the lecture.

The Best Tools and Apps for Flipped Learning Classroom July 25, 2014 Following the posting of "Managing iPad Videos in Schools" somebody emailed me asking about some suggestions for tools and apps to create instructional videos to use in a flipped learning setting. In fact, over the last couple of years I have reviewed several web tools and iPad apps that can be used in flipped classroom but the ones I am featuring below are among the best out there. 1- Educlipper Educlipper is a wonderful tool for creating video tutorials and guides to share with students. As a teacher you can create an Educlipper board for your class and share the link with them. Now that you have a shared space with your students, you can go about creating instructional videos using the iPap app of Educlipper. Pixiclip is another wonderful tool to create step by step instructional videos to use in your flipped classroom. 3- Explain Everything Knowmia Teach is a new free lesson planning and recording tool for teachers and their students. 6- Educreations
Ideas y recursos para poner tu clase del revés con la 'flipped classroom' Conocida también como pedagogía inversa y clase al revés, la flipped classroom apuesta por invertir el orden tradicional de la clase, cambiando su organización. Con este sistema de enseñanza-aprendizaje semipresencial, el orden de las actividades se altera y los niños empiezan el proceso de aprendizaje fuera del aula, para luego trabajar los conocimientos y ponerlos en práctica con el profesor. El enfoque de esta metodología es revolucionario, pero la aplicación en clase es muy sencilla. Las clases tradicionales suelen comenzar con una presentación de la teoría en el aula que luego el alumno debe afianzar por su cuenta con las tareas, deberes de estudio o trabajos que el profesor le indique. Entre los beneficios de la flipped classroom destaca la atención personalizada y directa que el docente puede ofrecer a sus alumnos en clase, controlando su aprendizaje de forma individual.

Flipped learning skyrockets across the nation Once brand new, the flipped learning model further cements its position in classrooms Though no learning model is perfect, flipped learning offers educators and students one way to boost engagement and make learning much more interesting and organic. And as more research highlights this learning model’s benefits for students and teachers, more educators are motivated to give it a try. Researchers from the Flipped Learning Network and Sophia Learning sought to update 2013 data with new figures to reflect just how quickly and broadly flipped learning is expanding. A February 2014 survey released in May 2014 reveals that the term “flipped learning” is recognized by 96 percent of teachers–an increase from 74 percent over the past two years.
