Professional Guidance on the Use of Electronic Communication and Social Media - 2 views

  •  
    I do not know if a similar guide is available for Turkish teachers, but the General Teaching Council for Scotland has prepared a guidance document to help Scottish teachers with "identifying potential dangers, offering some guidance about how to avoid them and providing a context for responsible, professional use of electronic communication and social media." The guide concludes as follows: Before posting materials online stop and ask yourself: (1) Will the content reflect poorly on you, your school, employer or the teaching profession? (2) Is your intention to post this material driven by personal reasons or professional reasons? (3) Are you confident that the comment or other media in question, if accessed by others, (colleagues, parents etc) would be considered reasonable and appropriate?

Ten Tips for Becoming a Connected Educator - 2 views

  •  
    Since online networks and communities have opened new avenues for teacher professional development and connectedness, it is of paramount importance for us to explore the ways on how to make the best use of them. From my standpoint, it is not sufficient to introduce or sign up for them, we, at the same time, need to think how to maximize and optimize our experiences on such platforms. At the end of the day, we may find ourselves on the margins of such communities and networks only consuming or wandering aimlessly. :)

The Flipped Class: Overcoming Common Hurdles - 1 views

  •  
    In this short informative video clip, two experienced flippers offer a number of ways to overcome the challenges posed by the flipped classrooms. Here is the outline of the video: - alternative ways on how to access content, - how to watch educational videos, - the optimum length of the videos, - how to motivate students to watch the videos before coming to class, - some techniques to improve the quality of the videos, - the flexibility of flipped approaches, - the importance of contextual factors on the effectiveness of flipped classrooms.
  •  
    this video illuminated me about the minimum properties of an instructional video. I agree that while providing a video teacher should consider the grade of students. Language, clarity and length of video is important to gain student attention. And this is a good idea that starting with small pieces may be good to try the flipped classroom model and adjust students.

    Yasin, I'm really surprised. What's going on in the Education of Turkey :) These are really good news ;)
  •  
    Wow, these students, though they are 7th graders, are able to form sentences with a good amount of intellectual load. They are aware of concepts such as "eğitim devrimi; öğrenme ortamı; öğrenme deneyimi" and many more. I wonder if this is another advantage of "flipped classroom modeli" because none of the college students I teach are capable of forming sentences as elegant as these.
  •  
    To be honest, their comments are surprising for me too, especially when I see that they have experienced no challenge or discomfort in terms of adapting to this new model. Plus, all those comments look like they are promoting a market product. :) Perhaps our educational system has accomplished to raise students who are highly motivated and capable of adapting to rapid changes. :)

How to Use Ted Ed to Create a Flipped Classroom - 3 views

  •  
    A widely preferred technique in flipped classrooms is to provide learners with short video lectures before the class time. The videos can be in the form of screen captures, webcam recordings of the lecturer, or in more professional setting, recordings of the lecturer in a real classroom setting. Here in this video, you can see an example of such a video in which a lecturer introduces how to use TED Ed, a popular tool for flipped classrooms.
