Transcript of The Flipped Classroom

The Flipped Classroom Steve Mays - Mason High School mayss@mason.k12.oh Math Teacher Even bad teachers aren't this bad.
But some of our students feel like this even when listening to the most dynamic speakers on the planet. What is a Flipped Classroom? Traditional (Mainstream) Definition:
Where videos take the place of direct instruction.
This allows students to get individual time in class to work with their teacher on key learning activities.
It is called the flipped classroom because what used to be classwork (the lecture) is done at home through videos and what used to be homework (assigned problems) is now done in class. This is somewhat true, but flipping your classroom is so much more than that. The Flipped Classroom Is Not . . . Is . . . A synonym for online videos.
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. A class that increases the interaction 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 classroom where absent students do not 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. Video itself will not help kids achieve more in your class. The flipped classroom is about making connections with learners and differentiating your instruction. If videos are a part of that multifaceted plan, great. If they are not, still great. Why Flip a Classroom? Ask yourself this 30/30 question:
When do my students need me the most? http://www.timer-tab.com/ Some of my reasons:
More 1-on-1 & small group instruction
Time for more engaging activities
Keeps me more in touch with ALL of my students
Allows for differentiation - Plan for the extremes and the middle will be just fine.
Students can now take ownership of their learning
My students leave my class wanting more and looking forward to coming back Bloom's Taxanomy New Old Remembering - define, duplicate, list, memorize, recall, repeat, reproduce

Understanding - classify, describe, discuss, explain, identify, locate, recognize, report, select, translate, paraphrase

Applying - choose, demonstrate, dramatize, employ, illustrate, interpret, operate, schedule, sketch, solve, use, write

Analyzing - appraise, compare, contrast, criticize, differentiate, discriminate, distinguish, examine, experiment, question, test

Evaluating - appraise, argue, defend, judge, select, support, value, evaluate

Creating - assemble, construct, create, design, develop, formulate, write What does a good flipped classroom look like? •Discussions are led by the students where outside content is brought in and expanded.
•These discussions typically reach higher orders of critical thinking.
•Collaborative work is fluid with students shifting between various simultaneous discussions depending on their needs and interests.
•Content is given context as it relates to real-world scenarios.
•Students challenge one another during class on content.
•Student-led tutoring and collaborative learning forms spontaneously.
•Students take ownership of the material and use their knowledge to lead one another without prompting from the teacher.
•Students ask exploratory questions and have the freedom to delve beyond core curriculum.
•Students are actively engaged in problem solving and critical thinking that reaches beyond the traditional scope of the course.
•Students are transforming from passive listeners to active learners. Please note that it takes time to get to this point. Where do I begin? There are 3 things to think about as you start the transition to a flipped classroom

1. Start small.
2. Plan everything from intro to test. (Work backwards)
3. Don't be afraid to fail. Before Break #1 What is "Explore-Flip-Apply"? Explore Present the task to students
