What Is The Flipped Classroom Model And Why Is It Amazing? (With Infographic) - Forbes - 6 views

  • I recommend reading the arguments for carefully. Meanwhile, the arguments against are pretty hilariously silly:
  • Need it be pointed out that the whole point of the flipped classroom is that it replaces homework?
  • “The Digital Divide.” This is actually a reasonable argument. The flipped classroom model assumes that kids have access to internet access and internet-enabled devices, and this is not yet true for everyone

  • The whole idea of the flipped classroom model is to get rid of homework, which doesn’t work, and replace it with videos so that all classroom can be interactive.
  • he whole point of the lectures is to enable much more hands-on teaching during the day.
  • With the right setting, kids love to learn.

Electronic education: Flipping the classroom | The Economist - 0 views

  •  
    This article gives an interesting perspective into the  flipped classroom.  A flipped classroom is one, where lessons or the lecture, can be viewed online either at school or home.  Then, the teacher spends their time in class with activities to reinforce the lesson/content.  

    Khan Academy is an interesting tool for students to use for Math.  Many more video type lessons are becoming available for free.  Screencasting sites, like www.screencastomatic.com  Allow for teachers to create their own lecture videos.

      Provides responses globally which can contribute to the global perspective

      This reminds me of some of the clicker elements that we have integrated into our schools in the recent years, but sometimes there are issues with this. By having this, we can integrate formative assessment quickly and receive immediate feedback. 
    • Kristin Lavorato
       
      Creating a poll quickly is definitely a point of appeal for teachers, and students can utilize this as well for check-ins after presentations. Not a bad idea for attention grabbers either!

      I have used this with my co-taught US History course and the students love being able to use their phones to give feedback or share opinions.

      We used this tool in a meeting of educators and it worked great. One of my concerns about using this in school is that I wouldn't want to upset any students that did not have a phone or the ability to text.
  •  
    Free service limited to 30 students, after that for pay. Respond to polls on your website or via twitter, or by phone.

    I have a sci teacher that allowed her students to use this with their cell phones/ipods during sex ed class. It was used as a means to anonymously ask questions that would usually be very embarrassing in a classroom setting. It worked great and students were able to use their personal devices as learning tools!
  •  
    Another Web 2.0 tool which allows you to create polls. There is a free version, but also some priced versions too. Looks like a very flexible format!
  •  
    A easier way to collect quantitative information anywhere and anytime.
  •  
    This would work great with i-clickers!
  •  
    Poll Everywhere is a great way to allow students to use their favorite piece of technology, their phones! I love using this site to create anticipation guides. Students' initial responses are anonymous, but the results can lead to great discussion.
  •  
    I just took a look - I am wondering if I will be able to post math problems ... would love to be able to use it to ask questions to check for understanding periodically through the class.
  •  
    Glad to see I don't have to buy a complicated clicker system in order to get real-time feedback from my class.
  •  
    This is awesome tool that I plan on experimenting with for some of my classroom workshops. I was exposed to this type polling at a recent training conference that I attended. This will defintly reduce the paperwork.
  •  
    This looks like a great tool for classroom polling. I often place a Keystone question into my power point and the class talks through the correct/incorrect answers & offers strategies on how to approach the questions in the future. This would be a fun way to get everyone involved.
  •  
    I've taught high school Spanish, grades 6-12 ESL, and Elementary Ed and I can see that this tool would be usable in all of these situations. Just tweak for the grade level and content. V ery usable with adults as well.
  •  
    Can do real time surveys and quizzes in the classroom. Know if students are understanding the material almost instantly. Like the potential for quick feedback and saving paper.Surveys and quizzes could be multiple choice or open-ended. Even usable in lower grades, probably third grade and up.
  •  
    Gather anonymous, live responses to a poll/survey via text/cell phone.

    We recently used this during our retirement luncheon as a way to advertise advice and appreciation to the retirees.  Comments were shared anonymously on the Smartboard for all to see and share!
  •  
    Poll Everywhere allows students to answer questions and share opinions using there Smartphones
  •  
    I've used this tool successfully in the large conference environment. Could be useful for a live online class if you didn't want to compromise screen real estate.
  •  
    We just had this introduced to are departments not to long ago, it's great for simple polls of what the students are thinking.
  •  
    This would be a great tool to use in the classroom if you were taking a survey, asking questions, checking for understanding, etc.  This will give immediate feedback to the teacher or presenter.

    Good idea for PPYP?

    "I can remember a particular English Teacher who used one of those terms in just about every sentence to us. "I have to provide you '21st Century Skills' or else you won't be prepared for college or the 'real world." Being a Senior, close to graduation, I didn't really want to know or even care about, what she was talking about; I just wanted out!"
