- Getting hands-on and flipping some of your own content.
- Trying out some free screencasting tools, and learning techniques for creating high quality, engaging screencasts.
- Learning about other free tools for creating engaging digital flipped learning content.
- Sharing your ideas and insights, interacting with other educators, and learning from each other throughout the workshop (this is one of the most fun parts of the course)!
- Learning about more resources available to continue your flipped teaching and learning journey.
Each week will include video and reading assignments, and specific exercises to complete. There will be required participation in discussion forums where you will share your learning experience, ask questions, and interact with fellow workshop participants. We will use a variety of fun, free tools to interact and for complete workshop assignments.
Everyone who completes their assignments and participates in the discussions will be provided a Certificate of Completion upon completion of the workshop.
All participants will receive a free copy of the new “Flipped Classroom Workshop-in-a-Book” eBook if PDF format (a $19.99 value), which we will use throughout the course.
Here’s a sampling of feedback from previous workshops:
– “I just wanted to say thank you for this class. I learned more about the how and whys of flipping the classroom and I was able to reflect on what I already know and put in a written format. I liked reading the posts of other class members as well. They gave some great ideas and it was nice to have some of my questions/concerns brought up by others. This class is also ‘rubbing off’ on a couple of my colleagues as well. They are not creating their own content, but they are leveraging already created content and their current website to offer students more resources! This has occurred since my conversations about this class started!”
– “The book was phenomenal! At this point I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed this course and have already recommended it to others and plan to continue. Thank you for a job well done!
– “My head is spinning with all of the great ideas that I gained from this workshop — and especially from our discussions. I am going to try to get on the agenda for an upcoming all-school meeting to share some of the ideas from this workshop. I am even leaning toward flipping my “new prep” classes if I can feel comfortable with staying ahead of the students in content creation. Our classes are structured to be two hours of lecture and two hours of lab per week. That translates into an hour of lecture followed by an hour of lab two days a week. By flipping my classes, I feel that the students who now struggle with homework will excel due to the reality that the homework they are assigned is laying the groundwork for what they do in class. Now, I’m just looking for a sure way to get and keep them motivated to access the flipped content for their homework. But, I think that problem might just take care of itself — we’ll see!”
– “I definitely look forward to experimenting with the flipped classroom. I’ve been working on screencasts using iPad apps such as educreations and explain everything. I think they are easy tools to use and interested in seeing how the students take to it. I’m also looking Into experimenting with TedEd also. Having an archive of lessons will prove beneficial. Students will be able to access lessons for review and if they want to go ahead. All in all, I envision this will free up more time for students to practice what they are learning. Whether its playing review games, answering practice problems, or even making their own screencasts, I think the learning process will be a positive one for the students.”
– “I am revved up to create more of my own original videos, but also think I will depend on other videos. Our fourth graders don’t have much homework, but I look forward to trying to incorporate this into science and math. At this point, I think I’d like to try creating new ones for math, and use the Dr. Edventure, BrainPop, Bill Nye, the Science Guy, and others for Science. I also have a class website, so have to figure out how to use this and balance it with the new skills I will be learning with wikis and google websites. Our district will be assigning google emails this fall to every elementary student, so while I have a general knowledge of google, it will be fun to explore these concepts and how they can all fit together.”
– “My original idea for the flipped classroom was to use the flipped classroom as a way to have students watch classroom material at home, freeing up class time for more meaningful instruction. I continue to believe that this will be my plan; however, I also plan to create learning stations in my classroom which utilizes the videos that I make. Students will have the opportunity to rotate into a learning station which requires them to view a flipped classroom video in order to receive a portion of our daily instruction. While one group is completing this portion of the lesson, other groups will be composing their response to literature that we are reading while another group will be conferencing with me regarding what they are reading and writing in class.
– “In addition, I see a great value in developing these flipped videos as a great source of tutorial material for students. I want to be able to reference these videos so that students can constantly revisit any of them that they feel will help them become more successful in my classroom. For this reason, the content of the flipped videos will most likely focus on mini skills that students need in order to be successful in an English language arts classroom. I have already started building these lessons to include such topics as: the importance of setting, types of conflict found in literature, types of characters found in literature, the importance of developing a character for a reader, the use of symbolism in a work of fiction, etc.”
– “I am excited about the lessons that I will be creating this year, and I look forward to continuing to grow as an educator in my craft as a teacher. Thanks for everyone’s expertise in this workshop. I have learned a great deal from the responses that I have read by each of you.”
