What is the best use of the face to face time you have with your students?
My Story
There has to be something better...

Something more
Teacher-centered →
Passive learners →
active learners
Lower Order Thinking →
Higher Order Thinking
What is Flipped Learning?

(From FlippedLearning.org)

“Flipped Learning occurs when
direct instruction is moved from the group teaching space to the individual learning environment.

“Class time is then used for
active problem solving
by students and one-to-one or
small group interactions with the teacher
. Students can watch the short lessons as many times as they wish to grasp the content and
come to class ready to jump into
the lesson, answer questions, work on collaborative projects, and explore the content further.”
Hey Students, go home and watch this video!
When you're watching, I want you to take notes. At the end of the video, you are going to think about what you learned and write a summary. Then, you will write down any questions you still have and bring them to class.
Purposes of the WSQ
=Supporting Students + Fewer Excuses
Content organization
Assignment/Activity Organization
WSQ charts
Online calendars
Handwritten vs. Online
How do you know that students actually watched the video?
Google Forms
is an
entry point to effective, engaging, enjoyable class time!
"WSQ chat"
Peer Instruction
Hands-on activity (card sort, etc)
Challenge Problems
“Big Questions” - must have proof of their discussion through notes/visual/etc, teacher come around and discuss with each group for a few minutes
Going Deeper/ Discovery activity (if video just introduced basics)

Where are students going from here?
How is what they are learning connected to what is coming next?
What can they expect to see tonight?
TIME FRAME FOR CLASS (sample: 54 minute classes)
5 minutes
- teacher intro, plan for day
10-15 minutes
- WSQ chat activity
30-35 minutes
Student work time for practice, application, blog creation and evaluation, formative assessment (quizzes), etc.
Possible small group with teacher if needed.
Teacher checking in with students constantly, redirecting and focusing.
Whole-class clarifications (2-4 minutes) if needed.

A "Traditional" Classroom
Bell to bell, mostly teacher-centered
Lots of time spent on lower order transfer of knowledge
Sent students home with practice I knew they might struggle with
My Answer:
I want my students...

about the math. [TWIRLS]
2. Figuring out
why things work
and where this math stuff comes from.
3. Receiving
with actual problem solving
, not just the initial exposure.
ctively engaged and thinking critically
throughout the class period.
One thing I learned from my story is that you don't have to do a full-fledged flip to benefit from a flipped learning environment.

It's about a mindset shift that in everything you do, you are going about it in a way to make the best use of the f2f time you have with your students.

Video is just a tool that is used to remove direct instruction from the one-size-fits-all classroom and allows class time to be more student-centered, focused on HOTter skills, and much more active learning.

This in turn, is a much more effective, engaging, and enjoyable classroom to be in.
Started small...
Put my lesson (intro, vocab, a few examples) on a video for students to watch before class...
p.s. these things took time.
they didn't happen immediately.
flipped learning is a process, of continually trying things and tweaking things and finding what works...
What I've learned...
Full-fledged flip not necessary to reap benefits
All about a mindset shift
What is the best use of your f2f time?
Video as a tool which helps accomplish 3 goals
Student centered
Active Learners
Higher Order Thinking
All leads to a 3-E environment
effective, engaging, enjoyable
