The Flipped Class: Myths vs. Reality - 4 views

    I liked this comment at the bottom of the article:
    " If the choice was between lecturing in front of passive students vs. flipped classroom, I'd certainly choose flipping.
    I think flipping is a great response to teacher-centered, passive lecture classrooms, but it certainly isn't the only way to create a student-centered and effective learning environment. If activities and learning opportunities inside the classroom are well designed, lectures (whatever form they may take) are unnecessary."

    My concern with a total flipped classroom model is that I haven't seen any resources that can explain the math concepts I want my students to understand at a level i think is adequate. I could create videos myself I guess but then I would be lecturing. I prefer a more exploratory and socratic approach to learning new concepts. I can't imagine anything more boring the having to watch a video of me lecturing about math.

    I am really intrigued by the set up of a flipped classroom. My hesitation to implement 100% always seems to come down to access. Access both in the classroom and out of the classroom. Yes I can assign the websites, I can create the stuff to do outside of class, but if even one student does not do their part that disrupts the learning of everyone.
    Like Dharma, I also think that lecturing (whether a video of myself or someone else) is boring and class could be better served if I didn't have to do this, but, at the same time, I want to be able to read faces while I am lecturing. I want to be able to guide understanding and address and misconceptions that arise while I am lecturing (i.e. disseminating information).
    I think that creating videos yourself is definitely the way forward Dharma but like you say...they can't be boring! Maybe videoing yourself in class situation doing exactly what you do now....just videoing it might be the answer. The other top tip (and why a channel on YouTube is such a good idea) is keeping the videos short and sweet!

    Majbrewer...certainly it's an essential consideration that you must make: can all my student access the material? If they can't there's usually a solution e.g. giving time during school hours or putting the files on a flash drive or lending out a laptop. I think that these days we should be aware that some students will not have access but we should not that that possibility become an obstacle as there are usually very few students who have problems and their problems are quite easily solved.
    ok, i'm a diigo girl now - world beware.. this may take me sometime to get used to and to start using - but all this technology is rather exciting!
    I'm ready to learn more...
