Flipping the Classroom Presented by Tony EdwardsPresentation Transcript
Flipping the Science Classroom using Anthony C. Edwards Group Code: qe1uod Edmodo!
In this session, you will learn how to:• flip your science classroom• expose students to engaging content• prepare students for an area science fair or Google Science Fair• provide students effective feedback to improve understanding• create polls and discussions to check for understanding• integrate with Google Apps for students to collect and analyze data• incorporate project-based learning• get students reading and writing in science
About Me• Five years experience as a science teacher• Middle and high school experience• Regular, Pre-AP, AP, Dual Credit Classes• Group Code: qe1uod• Twitter: @edlearninglab• Blog: http://edwardslearninglab.blogspot.com• Email: email@example.com
Google Apps inEdmodo• Post links to worksheets, notes, or presentations created using Google Apps• Changes to Google Documents are automatically available on Edmodo• Have students create Google Docs or Presentations and share them with you and post link in Edmodo• Students can answer questions for submit lab data using a Google form available on Edmodo
Engaging Content• Online virtual labs• Primary sources• Videos• TV and Movie content that relates to content (Example: Twilight, Indiana Jones, Mythbusters)
What is a #flipclass?• Lectures are recorded for students to watch outside of class.• Students come to class to work on activities instead of taking notes.• Key: Focus on student learning, not making videos.
#flipclass Classroom Management• More labs, inquiries, projects, foldables• Collaborative learning• Less time in front of class lecturing• More time walking around class monitoring student work and providing feedback
Your Flip Toolkit• Camera• iPod, iPad, iPhone, Android tablet• Screencast app or site• Learning Management System
Screencast Options• iOS Apps • Explain Everything, Educreations, ScreenChomp, Show Me• Websites • sophia.org, screencast.com, jing.com, screencast-o-matic.com • Consider firewalls when deciding where to host your videos (Example: YouTube)
Video presentationoptions• Record yourself talking about topic• Record your voice over a PowerPoint presentation• Record lab demonstration/use of models• Q&A sessions/discussion of discrepant events• Paperslide presentation• Six slide whiteboard presentation
"I dont want to bea video star!"• Apprehension• Making videos and planning engaging classes can be overwhelming• Alternatives: YouTube, SchoolTube, TeacherTube, Sophia, Vimeo, Educreations
Providing effectivefeedback inEdmodo• Be specific about what is incorrect in a student response, but dont give them the answer.• Ask them a question or tell them what they need to correct so they can discover the correct answer for themselves.• Google their responses to check for plagiarism.
Using Edmodo inthe #flipclass• Post videos to Edmodo as assignments• Ask open-ended questions for students to answer in response to the videos• Add questions within video so students need to watch video to complete assignment• Use an Edmodo poll or discussion to get feedback and check for understanding
Project-basedlearning withEdmodo• Create a project as an Edmodo assignment• Post rubric• Change Edmodo grade as students complete parts of rubric• Provide feedback on student revisions
Example Projects• Lab Reports• Google Science Fair• Research papers• Video presentations
Reading and Writing in Science withEdmodo• Post links to articles or websites for students to read• Post open-ended questions for students to answer• Determine how many sentences or paragraphs students are required to submit in their response
Science Fairs and Edmodo• Create assignment for science fair on Edmodo with rubric and due dates• Change due date in Edmodo as different parts become due• One assignment retains all parts of project for each student• If your students participate in Google Science Fair, have students post link to project when they turn in or comment on the assignment
