Flipping Your Classroom - Using Online Resources to Engage Students

987 views

Published on

There is a trend sweeping the education sector right now: “flipping the classroom”. As a means of increasing student engagement and learning, instructors are assigning videos to view as homework, and then using in-class time for discussion and active learning activities, instead of lecturing. What exactly is ‘flipping the classroom’? How does it work? Does it really increase student engagement and learning? What resources can be used?

  • Hi, my name is Lisa Shamchuk and I am a librarian here at the City Centre library. Today I’ll be talking about a current educational trend – flipping the classroom.HAS ANYONE EVER FLIPPED A LESSON OR A CLASS?
  • I will give you a background to the trend, and also give you some ideas for resources the library has for you that can help you flip your classrooms.Stop me at any time with any questions!I used to teach elementary school in another life. And back then SmartBoards were THE THING! But this trend never really impacted postsecondary like it did K-12. There is a Smartboard in almost every classroom. We have projectors here – but it’s not quite the same.Flipping is THE THING from K-12 that is currently making an impact on postsecondary pedagogy.
  • So, what is it? [Watch]If this was a true flipped session – I would’ve gotten you to watch this video for homework before this session, and then instead of spending time talking about background information, I could’ve gotten you all to do an activity or get involved in a discussion – but I’m sure you didn’t need anymore homework at this time of the year!
  • Changes the place in which content is delivered. Teacher assigns lecture-type instruction – in the form of video, simulations, slidecasts, readings, podcasts – as homework. It’s important to note it doesn’t have to be videos!Facilitated by technology, but doesn’t have to rely on it.Class time can be used interactively. The class becomes conversation space, creation space, space where teachers actively facilitate learning.Instructor = FacilitatorCheck for student knowledgeProvide guidance/assistanceReduces lecturing time = more class time for active learningHigh order thinking skillsImproved engagement/participationIncreases peer interaction and team based skillsMeets needs of different types of learners
  • Prep time: video/other + activityResistant to active participation: “I’m not paying to talk to my classmates, I’m paying to hear an expert.”Incentive: Same as assigning readings - In class activity must relate to the homework
  • Already somewhat established in K-12 – emerging area for higher education (research sitting on editors’ desks?)
  • No hard core statistical research data yet, especially in the post secondary environment as it’s still a “new” concept.
  • How do you decide what to flip?Supplement with your custom recordings laterTalk to Faculty Commons, other educators who are doing it
  • Khan Academy – over 4500 videos on many subjects – especially math and science – signature is colour on black [SHOW] – started it allYoutube – use videos created and posted by other instructorsiTunes U – view, add, create entire courseTed Ed – 300 lessons, flipped over 35,000 times Ted – over 1500 talks given by experts
  • Demo video page on libraryDemo Films on Demand – you can search by keyword or browse by topic– search “public health”Click on title, note segmentsTranscript and captionsUse URL from bottom of pageStreamed Video Search – cumbersomeDemo - Use 1search insteadSearch for “public health”Limit to MacEwan InternetLimit to video
  • If you do want to make your own videos, there are many fee and free screecasting tools that can help you.Here at the library, we are using Adobe Captivate to make our tutorials. You can download a free trial version.A couple years ago I worked with a student in EDIT 202 to make a database tutorial using Screencastomatic, a free tool – and it was super easy! Basically you click Record, and the application will record whatever you say and whatever is on your screen.If you want to start getting into making your own videos, you can request Faculty Commons offer a session or some teaching on using some of these tools. The library is going to be launching a Learning Commons soon. This is a student centred space that will be used for learning an collaboration between students and faculty. If you think a drop in session on screencasting would be useful, let me know, and I’ll offer the suggestion to the Learning Commons librarian for future programming ideas.Streaming videos – Instructional Media and Design can help you with that [SHOW]
  • If you are interested in trying this out, I recommend watching the TedTalks by the founder of the Khan Academy, it’s quite inspirational.Bergmann and Sams are considered the founders of flipping, they are high school teachings. Their book does have some excellent tips to help you make the transition to a flipped model.The Barkley book is full of activity ideas for what you could do in the classroom. It’s a popular book in Faculty Commons and Paul will be running a Student Engagement series using it, so check the Faculty Commons Fall Program for more details!Both the print and ebook of these two are available through the library.
