Flip Your Classroom
Big tip...start small!
What does Flipped Learning actually mean?
Let's boil it down...
Big tip...start small & embrace the mistakes!
- choose a subject you feel comfortable with
- choose a specific skill/lesson in that subject
- don't get caught up in thinking you have to "flip" everything
- you choose what is "flip-able" (ie: what can meaningfully be flipped)
- your daily lessons are not perfect, your videos wont be perfect and that's OK
- thought there was great value in flipping how content was delivered
- lectures can be watched at home
- student can come in with questions
- in class students can work whole group and in small groups to move through practice
- teacher can facilitate work and clear up misconceptions on the spot rather than forcing them to fend for themselves at home after an in-school lesson
Flipping in action...mimics what you probably already do before an in class lesson
- know your audience - videos should be 1-2 minutes for every grade level
- determine what skills/concepts you want your kids to take away
- "script" your lecture
- guided practice
- independent practice
CREATE A VIDEO
Let's play around with Touchcast
- how to create whiteboard slides
- how to record voice over whiteboard
- how to record video
SHARE WITH STUDENTS
- e-mail home
- publish to website
- whole group review of video, independent practice
- whole group review of video, application of skills in centers
2. video used as a center in class
- students who need extra help get small group lesson from teacher rather than through video
- student2 who need enrichment can watch lecture in class and move on to practice
Try it on your own
- script your content; spoken words and written content
- play around in Touchcast
- make mistakes
- I'll be around to help out
