Flipped classrooms with VLE - Webinar 11th December 2013

  1. 1. Flipped Classroom Constructivist pedagogy in the VLE Webinar - 10/21/13
  2. 2. Overview Models of Teaching: Transmissive and Constructivist Features of Constructivist Learning Flipped Classroom VLE and Flipped Classroom Conclusions
  3. 3. Transmissive Teaching
  4. 4. Transmissive Teaching Knowledge as an object “Traditional teaching from the front” Teacher centred Learning is listening to explanations Skills achieved through repetitive practice
  5. 5. Constructivist Teaching Creative commons: http://dimity.edublogs.org/files/2010/05/Children-learning.jpg
  6. 6. Constructivist Teaching Knowledge is socially constructed People build “schema” to understand the world Learning is about problem solving, reflection, metacognition, integrating knowledge into schema Learning activities are authentic, real-world, relevant, collaborative, co-operative
  7. 7. Flipped Classroom Lectures and homework are flipped around Learners consume lecture content outside of class (video, screencast, documents) Class time is used for participatory activities Example: Watch video at home, in class teacher guides activities that apply concepts
  8. 8. Flipped Classroom Tutor moves from “Sage on the Stage" to "Guide on the Side” Higher learner achievement and engagement Better attitudes toward learning Increased teacher-learner interaction
  9. 9. VLE and Flipped Classroom Asynchronous activity Tutor’s Role: Create/Curate content on VLE Use forums or blogs for discussions Set reflective tasks for learners Tutor offers feedback and guidance online Self grading quizzes for formative assessment
  10. 10. Face to Face Learning Time Synchronous activity Active learning (meaningful tasks, problem solving, reflection, peer interaction) Knowledge is applied / clarified Self, peer and tutor evaluation
  11. 11. Flipped Classroom Critique Access to internet/equipment Lack of preparedness Not suitable for all types of learner Time/money investment in creating/curating content and learning platform Quality of content
  12. 12. Conclusion VLE used to manage content Online tasks help learners understand before class (content and interactive activity) Class time used for applying concepts (more tutor/learner and learner/learner interaction) Consider the affordances, use judiciously
