  12. 12. Ideas for Implementation • Reading assignments • Instructor Lectures • Explanations or demonstrations of procedures • Any “Sage on the Stage” activity Uses in Class What to Flip?

  14. 14. Quick Poll! Using your own device, please answer the following:
  15. 15. “The principal goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done.” Jean Piaget
  16. 16. The Actively Engaged Student The BIG question: • How do you want to spend time with your students? Flipped Instruction Allows: • You to be the “coach” or “guide” • Students shift from “passive attendees” to “active learners” Ideas for Application
  17. 17. Flipping with Apps & Videos
  18. 18. Flipping with Apps & Videos • Accessible any time • Multiple content provider sources • Differentiate for multiple learning styles • New Millennial Learners - why not reach them where they are with technology? Why use these resources?
  19. 19. Considerations • Why are you using the videos and apps? • What do you hope to accomplish? • Are they part of the learning goals/objectives for the course? • Are videos right length and level of detail? • Too long? Break up into smaller modules. • Help students organize information logically.
  20. 20. Considerations • Does video provide visual content or instruction? • Avoid Talking Heads • Show, don’t tell. •Are you engaged? If not, they won’t be either. Presentation
  21. 21. Apps for students and teachers • Greater student engagement • Interactive tools and technologies • Some apps, such as productivity tools, may be very helpful for students with time-management issues • Information available wherever they have their devices Benefits of Using Apps

  29. 29. Weighing Your Options
  30. 30. Flipped Instruction in Action What Do Dr. Fus’ Students Think? Dr. Fus Flipped General Chemistry Classroom
  31. 31. Pros • Students can still access instruction when school is out. • Increased time for more engaging instruction • Address different learning styles (i.e., print, audio/video, etc.) • Increased motivation to attend face-to-face classes • Formative & summative assessment • Documented increase in student achievement • Create a repository of lectures/materials to help increase improvement through time
  32. 32. Cons • Front loaded (increase prep time & effort) • Inability to monitor comprehension & accountability • No Just-in-time info (can’t answer student questions right when they have them) • May be difficult to comply with American’s with Disabilities Act • High levels of classroom spontaneity & interaction are hard for more traditional instructors (Guide on the Side vs. Sage on the Stage). • Temporary drop in student satisfaction (they must take on a more active role and some students have trouble at first)
  33. 33. Tips for Successful Engagement Back-check students (increase accountability) • Have quick multiple choice quizzes over materials (apps & BlackBoard have self-grading options) • Ask students specific questions about materials in class • Provide tasks within the materials that are due in class
  34. 34. Tips for Successful Engagement Get your feet wet first, don’t just dive in • Start with one lesson or project • Provide more than just video (tap into those learning styles) • Build your repository and experience • Collaborate! Find other interested faculty and combine efforts • Do your homework! Find out what resources MSU has to help you!
