    Stands for Too Wordy...
    Everyone has different reading abilities. Some people searching the web are university professors and others are 5 year old children. Twurdy has been created to provide people with access to search results that suit their own readability level.

Follow-up from online session: Experiencing the Snow Day Flip | NAIS Annual Conference ... - 1 views

    • The following are some of the key points from today’s session.

      • You don’t need a snow day to start flipping your class
      • Don’t wait for an unplanned day to try some of these techniques and technologies. Start now and make this a new norm in your teaching.
  • Try to avoid the “lecture” as a way to deliver content from a distance. Allow for experiential learning, interactions and collaboration.
  • Artifact of understanding. This is something that the student creates that captures the student’s level of understanding through synthesis of the material. This can be anything from a reflective blog post to videos, sound recordings, media presentations, artwork, creative writing, collection of images with reflective text etc. Match the artifact of understanding with the nature and complexity of the material being explored.
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • Use the tools that you have available. You don’t have to purchase expensive tools to flip your classroom.

  • The framework is expressed as eight interconnected pedagogies involving narrative-driven learning, visualised learning plans, hands-on/reflective techniques, use of symbols/metaphors, land-based learning, indirect/synergistic logic, modelled/scaffolded genre mastery, and connectedness to community.
  • This is a pedagogy framework that allows teachers to include Aboriginal perspectives by using Aboriginal learning techniques. In this way, focus can remain on core curriculum content while embedding Aboriginal perspectives in every lesson.
