  12. 12. What Happened? Students HATED it! & Students did AWFUL! “Teacher isn’t teaching us” & “I can’t learn this way” “I thought I understood it” & “I don’t get it” Changes that I made Explained various ways to use the videos: Introduction, while performing the skill, as review Offered optional lectures - one day, 1 or 2 problems “live” Students began CHOOSING how to LEARN I “flipped”: more time to work with more help in class - that work used to happen at home, help before/after schoolWednesday, October 17, 2012

  14. 14. My “Flipped Classroom” My classroom began to look like this: 12 students up at the front listening to a 20min lecture - then I am watching/asking Q’s/answering Q’s (Assessing!)

  15. 15. The “Flipped Classroom” “Flipped Classroom” Students watch videos at home & practice in class w/teacher as tutor Hesitations & Criticisms: Some students benefit from lecture - esp. if they chose it Choosing HOW to use the videos is a powerful way to have students own their learning, rather than as an “assignment” Skills vs. Concept & Doing vs. Understanding Ramsey Mussallum - Explore, Flip, Apply Q’s in the videos Misconceptions & mistakes (expert & novice in video)Wednesday, October 17, 2012

  18. 18. Student/Parent Comments Parents - at P/T conferences I wish I had this - I might have done better in chemistry! That’s what I heard all the way to Florida!
