  6. 6. The Flipped Classroom Defined The Flip model is described as: “teacher created videos and interactive lessons, instruction that used to occur in class is now accessed at home, in advance of class. Class becomes the place to work through problems, advance concepts, and engage in collaborative learning. Most importantly, all aspects of instruction can be rethought to best maximize the scarcest learning resource-time” (Tucker, 2012).
  7. 7. “Founder” of the Flipped Classroom Jon, along with Aaron Sams, is considered a pioneer in the Flipped Class Movement. He spent 24 years as a middle and high school science teacher before becoming the lead technology facilitator for a school district in the Chicago suburbs. Today Jon is dedicated to writing, speaking and otherwise promoting the flipped classroom concept. Jon helped found the Flipped Learning Network, a non-profit organization which provides resources and research about flipped learning. http://jonbergmann.com/
  8. 8. So what does this look like?
  9. 9. Why did I flip? • • • • • Smallest class was 32 students Changed the sequence of classes No time! (43 minute classes) Was he even here today? Students weren’t turning in work, and just weren’t getting it • Too many kids in tutoring
  10. 10. How did I start? Pre-Flip • Spoke with admin. • Took a technology survey and established a student contract/expectations. • Sent a letter home to parents. • Got the students excited! Beginning stages • Recorded for students that were absent • Recorded a lesson for a sub • Modeled how to watch videos • Changed the way I did test reviews • Flipped a full chapter!
  11. 11. What did the average day look like? The day before: • Students picked up the guided notes • Students watched the video at home • Students developed 2-3 questions about the video/topic The next day: • Students completed a warm-up • Time to grade previous day’s work and ask any last questions • Application • Practice time • Students picked up new notes when applicable
  12. 12. Did it work??? Yes!! Benefits for students: • Parent access to materials at home • More time in class to explore concepts in depth • More homework turned in- improved gradesimproved scores • Students can ask questions to get the help they need • Students typically resistant are now engaged • Teaches responsibility
  13. 13. Did it work??? Yes!! Benefits for teacher: • Individualized instruction- The teacher knows the needs of every student • Gives you back your scarcest resource…Time! • Once it is done, it is done • Transitioned to a facilitator more than a lecturer
  14. 14. Theirs or Mine? Teacher Created Videos • Students hear a familiar voice/teaching style • Content is aligned exactly to our standards • You control everything • What I recommend Videos created by others • Different teaching styles, voices, etc. • Khan Academy, Knowmia, LearnZillio n, Sophia, etc. • Usually not aligned to Texas standards • Dependent on other servers, sites, etc • Use for extra practice/additional resource
  15. 15. Making a great video: • Team Teach • 1 minute per grade level • What you would normally do for whole group instruction- Examples • Include places to reflect/practice • Don’t be boring! • Test it first! • Make it so you can reuse it!
  16. 16. It’s simple! • Screenchomp (What I am using today) • Other devices: Promethean boards, Mobi, Mimio, Ladibug, some doc cams, screen capture on your desktop
  17. 17. Where to put your videos • • • • www.edmodo.com www.sophia.org Create your own YouTube channel Class website through the district
  18. 18. FAQS • What about students with no access? – Burn DVDs- great 2nd year! – Travel drives – Keep devices in your room- set up a “viewing corner” – Provide access to a lab or library before/after school – Be understanding and flexible
  19. 19. FAQS • What if they don’t watch? • How long are the videos? – About 1 minute per grade level – About 1 minute per year in age – Keep it simple!
