What Is a Flipped Classroom? BBS Professional Development Day 7 October 2012 Kathleen McKim, HS Media Specialist
In this session, we will• Define "the flipped classroom."• Explore how this concept changes the instructional landscape.• Reflect on ways that "flipping" can enable student success.
Some Definitions• The flipped classroom changes the place in which content is delivered (Valenza, 2012).• Basically the concept of a flipped class is this: that which is traditionally done in class is now done at home, and that which is traditionally done as homework is now completed in class. But as you will see, there is more to a flipped classroom than this (Bergmann & Sams, 2012).
The Changing Educational Landscape• The home becomes the lecture space. The hundred+ year-old frontal teaching model flips.• The class becomes conversation space, creation space, space where teachers actively facilitate learning.• Class time is freed up for interactive and applied learning, activities that inspire critical thinking, exploration, inquiry, discussion, collaboration, problem solving. -Valenza, 2012

THINK/PAIR/SHARE
Reflect • Think of your favorite lesson? Could it be enhanced by flipping? What would your students gain? What would be lost?
Take Away• Reflecting on pedagogy.• Rethinking how teachers reach students.• Inspiring teachers to change the way they’ve always done things.• Motivating teachers to use technology. (Herz, 2012)
