Have you tried your hand at Flipping The Classroom? Tell us about it and have your story featured here on EmergingEdTech!
Reverse Instruction, or “Flipping The Classroom” is a great way to leverage education technology and the idea has gained a lot of attention recently thanks to high-profile advocates like Salman Khan and The Khan Academy.
By enabling students to consume instructional content outside of normal class hours, teachers can devote more of their valuable face-to-face classroom time to reviewing and reinforcing the lessons covered in those materials. EmergingEdTech is a big believer in the potential of this concept, and we would love to hear more from teachers who have tried it and are willing to share their experiences.
In the recent post, “7 Stories From Educators About Teaching In The Flipped Classroom”, we learned of a number of good examples of teachers using this approach in their classrooms, and read about how to do this well, postive outcomes experienced, and downsides or things to avoid.
Have you tried reverse instruction in your classroom, even on a small scale? Many educators love to read about other teacher's experiences with using technology in instructional applications. Please do comment and tell us a little about how you've used reverse instruction … what worked well, and what didn't. We will reach back to some of the teachers who comment and select some stories for a full write-up and a Feature Post here on the site.
By the way – in addition to being featured on this website, I am also working on a possible presentation at Campus Technology 2012, so your story has the potential to be shared there as well.
