3 Arguments in Favor of the In-class Flip

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • If they are able to watch a video at home, they can pause, rewind, or rewatch the video and pace their own learning in a way that isnt possible when a teacher is lecturing or explaining information in class.
  • If teachers record their presentations and allowed students to watch them at their own pace in class, then students can still pause, rewind, ask a question, or look up a word to better understand the information being presented.
  • Instead, the magic is what happens in the classroom when the time created by shifting the transfer of information online is used to engage students in collaborative application and practice.
  • Its best to employ a Whole Group Rotation, if you have devices for every student, or a Station Rotation Model, if you have limited access to devices, to set up an in-class flip that both allows time for students to self-pace through the video or online information and work collaboratively…
  • When teachers are able to balance these two elements of the lesson, they are free to shift from the role ofa facilitator or coach supporting students as they work to apply information.

How These 26 Teachers and an Author Are Redefining Today’s Student-Centered Classroom – EdSurge News

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • We cant wait years because these kids need to get college and career ready, and were not doing that by over-scripting lessons, says Ormiston, a former classroom teacher who now works out of Chicago as a consultant, spending her time speaking, working with schools and writing.
  • But her most recent project is likely her most ambitious: a writing project called NOW Classrooms that she undertook with 26 working educators on the subject of what school looks like when students and teachers truly work in tandem; when technology is neither the focus of instruction or an afterthought;…
  • But two-and-a-half years ago, when Ormiston first saw Kowalski teach during a site visit, she would have walked into a class where student voice and choice was already the norm long before the phrase became a buzzword.
  • When the project first started, Ormiston worked closely alongside the K-2 team to hammer out an outline for the four classroom-specific books using ISTEs standards for teaching and learning.
  • Take a unit from Kowalskis grade 3-5 book on instructional video for example, which starts off with teaching students how to evaluate pre-made videos before asking them to create their own high-quality video lessons.
