Transforming Education with the Flipped Classroom

How can participants use digital media for instructional support?Digital Media is the practice of using computer-based tools to tell stories. Participants will use various delivery systems for their digital media to push content to their students. As with traditional storytelling, most digital stories focus on a specific topic and contain a particular point of view. Digital media usually contains some mixture of computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, video clips and/or music.

Fueling Creativity with Digital Media





Imagine a learning experience, supported and extended by the application of technology, that empowers students to create and contribute, all within the context of what they are expected to know and be able to do in the 21st Century. Imagine that this learning experience provides students with a compelling and competitive voice and enlarges the boundaries of their ability to communicate, potentially to a worldwide audience.

The Flipped Class: What it is and What it is Not
The Flipped Classroom is NOT:
  • A synonym for online videos. When most people hear about the flipped class all they think about are the videos. It is the the interaction and the meaningful learning activities that occur during the face-to-face time that is most important.
  • About replacing teachers with videos.
  • An online course.
  • Students working without structure.
  • Students spending the entire class staring at a computer screen.
  • Students working in isolation.

The Flipped Classroom IS:
  • A means to INCREASE interaction and personalized contact time between students and teachers.
  • An environment where students take responsibility for their own learning.
  • A classroom where the teacher is not the "sage on the stage", but the "guide on the side".
  • A blending of direct instruction with constructivist learning.
  • A classroom where students who are absent due to illness or extra-curricular activities such as athletics or field-trips, don't get left behind.
  • A class where content is permanently archived for review or remediation.
  • A class where all students are engaged in their learning.
  • A place where all students can get a personalized education.

From: Jon Bergmann, Jerry Overmyer and Brett Wilie The Flipped Class: Myths vs. Reality

Are You Ready to Flip?" . . .not all material is suitable to be taught through a video lesson."
  • Begin with the end in mind.
  • Provide quality learning resources
  • Content should be available available whatever-whenever-wherever (WWW)
  • Students can have ownership of the pace of their learning
  • Place the content they learned into context

Are videos necessary if you have engaging class work for their students through which students can learn?
  • Not all material is suitable to be taught through a video lesson.
  • We should use the tool because it is the right tool for a particular job.
    by Dan Spencer, Deb Wolf and Aaron Sams The Flipped Class: Myths vs. Realility


In the Edutopia article, Should You Flip Your Classroom? author Ramsey Musallam approaches flipping with caution. While he points out that flipping allows for differentiated instruction and more classroom time for collaboration and higher order thinking skills, the downside is that some students may lack access to the Internet (more on this later).Musallam advises teachers to reflect on their own style of teaching and to consider a hybrid method of flipping by following these steps:

Step 1: Identify your current or desired teaching style.
Step 2: Ask yourself this question: Given my style, do I currently use class time to teach any low level, procedural, algorithmic concepts?
Step 3: If yes, begin by creating opportunities for students to obtain this information outside of the classroom.
Step 4: Include a system that encourages reflection and synthesis of homework-based instruction.




Flipping is a natural compliment to a 21st century learning environment. The teacher moves through the roles of manager, coach, facilitator & mentor. Class time is spent exploring, discovering, succeeding and sometimes failing. Students work on project-based work and collaborate as appropriate to share information and successes. When a common vocabulary or foundational concept is required, the teacher (or students) can choose how to provide that information in a way that is archived for future reference.

Effective Use of Video in the Classroom

  • Video can be an exceptionally effective resource in the classroom for many reasons.
  • It allows students to actually see history as it happens.
  • When it is used to enhance visual memory, video can be a very valuable tool.
  • Video can reach children with a wide variety of learning styles.
  • It can bring fresh and timely information into the classroom.
  • It can serve to expose students to people, places, and events that other learning resources can't.
  • Video should never serve as the entire lesson, but rather as an enhancement to the lesson or unit of study.
  • It is important to remember when using video that the medium needs to be manipulated to meet specific instructional needs.
  • It is not something to use to fill time but rather as a very valuable asset to make the information personal and interesting for the learner.

When using video the following ideas should be considered:

1. Preview each video first. You must determine what is appropriate and what portions of the video have application to your lesson. You want to engage the learner, make him/her think and "see" content in action. Pick the clips that match your objectives, is suitable and will involve the learner in the proposed lesson. Pay attention during your preview to vocabulary, new concepts and special areas of interest. Look for the segments that best tell the story and meet your objectives. Also look for segments of the video that call for student response or interaction. Determine your purpose in showing the video--to motivate students, introduce a new concept, reinforce a previously learned concept, or enhance and expand current knowledge.

2. Provide a focus/reason for viewing. Give the students something specific to look for or to listen for in the video segment. This will focus attention, encourage active viewing, and give the student an objective or reason for viewing.

3. Segment the video. Instructional videos contain a great amount of information. Usually
much more information then the student (or teacher for that matter) can easily digest. Segmenting the viewing and using clips in a lesson you offer information to students in manageable chunks. By incorporating hands-on activities, discussion and other types of interaction around these clips or segments, the student is much more likely to meet the learning objectives of the lesson.

4. Conduct pre- and post-viewing activities that will integrate the video into the entire lesson structure. Previewing activities can serve a number of purposes, from checking prior knowledge, introduce necessary vocabulary, and set the stage for new learning. Post-viewing activities should allow the student to reinforce, review, apply, or extend their new knowledge in a meaningful, hands-on fashion.


The Flipped Classroom: What Does a Good One Look Like


The idea of the flipped class started with lecture and direct instruction being done at home via video and/or audio, and what was once considered homework is done in class. So, the order of the "lecture" and "homework" components of the class are, well -- flipped
.

Resources-Where to get great video content?
NEW
Youtube for Schools

Youtube for Teachers
  • Limit your searches to respected sources. Most established newspapers, museums, libraries, radio stations, and institutions have specific channels on YouTube where they collect their content. Just search by the name of the outlet on YouTube (say, PBS), and that organization's channel will pop up. From there, you can search exclusively within PBS's content.
  • Check out the teachers channel on YouTube. It starts with a ten-step tutorial on how to use YouTube in your classroom, with many more tips available if you join the YouTube Teachers Community and sign up for the e-newsletter. Teachers and students can upload videos here or create playlists from those already available, which range from Khan Academy’sexplanation of the Cuban Missile Crisis to a rap about the Krebs cycle.
  • Try the YouTube education channel. It allows users to search within it for videos on a wide range of academic subjects. Most of the content is aimed at university-level students, but may be accessible for younger ones, too.

Assumption: Videos have to be assigned as homework. WRONG!!!
Although video is often used by teachers who flip their class, it is not a prerequisite, and by no means must a video be assigned as homework each night. As with everything else, the use of a particular learning tool (teacher-made videos, hands-on experiments, online simulations, supplementary text, or current news articles) needs to be carefully evaluated and implemented by the teacher to accomplish the learning objective.

The Issues with Home Access:
  • Flash Drives
  • DVD
  • Free time at School
  • Library
