Commons Sense | What my student think about the flipped classroom - 49 views

  • So the key points I want to make about the flipped classroom that I have learnt from my wonderful class:

    • Students do learn how to manage themselves to make this method effective
    • Making your own video’s really matters with respect to teacher contact and correct syllabus language/ style
    • The right online question bank is a great tool for student learning (plus reduces stress on all)

    And finally …my year 12 IB Physics flipped classroom really works and so could anyone else’s.

  •  
    Could you tell us more about your online question bank? How do you have it setup, tool? Do you use an online quiz that provides more than one time to get the correct answer, hints to answers, and scores to students so they will know performance? What types of activities do you provide partnered with videos they watch? Thanks for your feedback.

    Thank you for your comment and really good questions. I'm special education teacher and I'm teaching severely autistic pupils. Comment in my Diigo post is directly from the blog, so I think it would be better to make the question in the blog. There are already really good comments in there. I think flipped classroom is fantastic idea and I'm trying to find teachers in my school, who could try it. In my classroom it's not possible so far.

  • The Flipped Classroom is NOT:

    • A synonym for online videos. When most people hear about the flipped class all they think about are the videos.  It is the the interaction and the meaningful learning activities that occur during the face-to-face time that is most important.
    • About replacing teachers with videos.
    • An online course.
    • Students working without structure.
    • Students spending the entire class staring at a computer screen.
    • Students working in isolation. 
  • The Flipped Classroom IS:

    • A means to INCREASE interaction and personalized contact time between students and teachers.
    • An environment where students take responsibility for their own learning
    • A classroom where the teacher is not the "sage on the stage", but the "guide on the side".
    • A blending of direct instruction with constructivist learning.
    • A classroom where students who are absent due to illness or extra-curricular activities such as athletics or field-trips, don't get left behind.
    • A class where content is permanently archived  for review or remediation.
    • A class where all students are engaged in their learning.
    • A place where all students can get a personalized education.

The Flipped Class Manifest - THE DAILY RIFF - Be Smarter. About Education. - 39 views

  • "The Flipped Classroom is an intentional shift of content
    which in turn helps move students
    back to the center of learning
    rather than the products of schooling.
    "
  • We are actively transferring the responsibility and ownership of learning from the teacher to the students in a Flipped Classroom. When students have control over how they learn content, the pace of their learning, and how their learning is assessed, the learning belongs to them.  Teachers become guides to understanding rather than dispensers of facts, and students become active learners rather than receptacles of information.
  • The Flipped Classroom is a pedagogy-first approach that strives to meet the needs of the learners in our individual schools and communities.  It is much more an ideology than it is a specific methodology...there is no prescribed set of rules to follow or model to fit.

  • It's not "record your lecture once" and you're done; it's part of a comprehensive instructional model that includes direct instruction, inquiry, practice, formative and summative assessment and much more. It also allows teachers to reflect on and develop quality and engaging learning opportunities and options for internalization, creation, and application of content rather than just fluff or time filling assignments.

  • Still more encouraging, our data show that when students work at their own pace, the need for traditional tracking and labeling goes away. Given the time and personal instruction needed to master core topics, supposedly "slower" students are often able to speed ahead. Within weeks, they look "advanced."

      Sure... but to extend this model further than mere "support", it removes the highly skilled teacher who can/should make the learning meaningful, relevant, interesting,... Simply completing skill-based tutorials does nothing for the child who needs something different or does not enjoy mathematics. Teachers are questioners, connectors, inspirers, relationship-builders,... not just traffic directors making sure everyone gets plugged in to the skill-based lessons that they need.

    Why not have lectures at home and 'homework' at school-and let students learn at their own pace?
