Flipped Classroom Blended Learning and Assessment
Flipped Classroom Blended Learning and Assessment @DaretoChem @BrdCmpbll
__What questions do you have about the Flipped Classroom model?__
@DaretoChem: Flipping in HS Chemistry Classes
heterogenous mixture of honors classes
Students enjoy controlling the pace of own learning, and like being able to see things again. Students can also do well by not taking any notes.
“Flipping” does NOT mean to just flip how you do things
@BrdCmpbll: Flipping in HS Social Science Classes
getting parents/Admin on board: Sending links about it and its benefits. Make sure to explain the rationale.
There’s a lot of information to share with them.
“Just ask.” If you don’t ask, you’ll never get what you want. May as well ask and maybe you’ll be successful.
Once the administration sees that you can and are willing to do more in your classroom, they will give you more.
Parent comment: That’s a great idea, but my daughter is not going to do it. I have four kids and if I have to buy her a smartphone, I have to buy all of my kids a smartphone.” After seeing how engaged her daughter became about science, she bought a smartphone for herself and became more tech-savvy.
Yeah, it’s homework, but it looks totally different. Kids are amazed that “all they have to do is watch a video.”
When do your kids need you? They need you to help them analyze the repercussions of a presidential action, not write down basic facts. Meaning conversation = I’m winning
When is the teacher’s input REALLY necessary?
Allows you to increase the difficulty of what kids are doing.
Inconsistent technology is not as important as you may think:
class becomes about collaboration rather than individuals needing a laptop
Used less technology after implementing the flipped classroom. Library, public library, someone in their neighborhood has access to technology. There’s always something available.
Doesn’t need to be internet; can be burned to a DVD or a flash drive
Can your school allow students to borrow laptops?
A lot of students watch the videos on their phones. They make use of the bus ride to and from school: “Learn whenever you want.”
Aaron Sams (@chemicalsams) and Jon Bergmann (@jonbergmann) originated the idea
How do you know if students are watching your videos?
Make a personal and a class related youtube channel
Youtube gives you stats of how many views your videos have
Students have to submit five questions based on the video-->create formative assessment but also lets you know who has/hasn’t watched it
Create a google forms on the video: Students go to the link and answer the questions about the video
Insert silly code words in the video
The point of the flipped classroom is to speak with every kid every class!
“Now I do short bits and then let them work.”
What kind of content is in your videos?
Videos range from definitions to example problems to typical lectures.
If you have to do something incorrectly in order to make something video-friendly
i.e. yellow flame on Bunsen burner to make it visible instead of blue, ask kids to comment on what was wrong with the flame or whatever.
What role does your textbook have in your flipped classroom?
Textbook is gone for Brad.
Lectures/textbook reading now incorporated in videos and primary sources/analysis happens in class
Science textbooks are for the teacher, not for the kids. The book is a cop-out for the teacher to be lazy and boring.
What would you have them read instead of the book?
Non fiction book about the topic
Flipped classroom doesn’t have to include videos!
What are your youtube channels?
How long are your video lessons?
Brad’s are 10 minutes
“The handcuffs are off”
Don’t have the limitations to “cover” the material in the same way... if you get involved in a real conversation, you can include content in a video for tomorrow.
do you pass video-making on to the kids?
Ability to give kids options
Objective focused instead of content focused
Brad tells them they will still be taking the book test... a traditional and a non-traditional assessment for each unit
What do you do with students who don’t do the work (view the videos) at home:
What score does a perfect piece of work earn if it’s 2 weeks late?
“There’s no expiration date on learning”
Be careful of copyright issues while you are making videos... anything you post to youtube opens you up to potential issues.
Fair Use and Transformation... make sure you are citing and giving credit where credit is due
@nesticos: #edcampphilly #flippedclass session has turned to cc discussion. Here r copyright guidelines we use from my class wiki
@mrlundblade: "Copyright Clarity" for educators. Relevant book/resource for #flipped classrooms at #edcampphilly #edchat
from @brdcmpbll ‘s school
“Go look it up”
Use the internet, wikipedia so that the students find the answer for themselves
Question and answers with flipped videos:
Question box as students come in
As students watch videos, they can ask questions in edmodo
Every Tuesday is homework and review sheet day
