  5. 5. Our flip teaching project● Began two years ago● Our goal is to have the entire IB DiplomaPhysics curriculum in video form uploaded tothe Physics departments Vimeo channel● Approx 80% of the syllabus covered so far● 60+ videos in the Vimeo channel
  6. 6. What can a flip lesson look like?● Can take any number offorms● We tend to emphasisecollaboration with bothteacher and peers● All lesson instructionscontained on the VLE
  7. 7. A recent example of a flip lesson10 mins Students discuss the video with each other and teacher. Can rewatchif necessary.10 mins To assess their own level of understanding of the topic so far thestudents complete a quiz (made by the teacher earlier) using googleforms.10 mins Teacher displays summary of quiz answers and discusses them withclass.30 mins Students placed in groups of 3-4 and given task of answering an IBPhysics question based on video content. The task is for the student tonot only answer the question but prepare a video/presentationexplaining how they answered itHomework Finish the presentation and present it next lesson to the rest of theclass.
  8. 8. What do students think?● 76% of students sampled said that they either agreed or strongly agreed with the statement that flip lessonsenable them to spend more time collaborating with their peers than in a traditional lesson.● 88% of students sampled said they either agreed or strongly agreed with the statement that flip lessons enablethem to spend more time communicating with the teacher than in a traditional lesson.Sample size = 50 studentsSome student comments● "I think it works well as an introductory lesson but as we go further into the topic I might want to ask questionsabout something that the teacher is explaining."● "Although flip teaching does help to save time in lessons, it does require more time spent by students in afterschool hours, and it does heavily depend on students having the discipline, or remember to watch the videos athome, or they will be falling behind in classes."
