Flipping the Language Arts Classroom and other Useful Technology

What is a Flipped Classroom?
The flipped classroom is a model of teaching in which a student’s homework is the traditional lecture viewed outside of class on a vodcast. Then class time is spent on inquiry-based learning which would include what would traditionally be viewed as a student’s homework assignment. Synonymous with Reverse Classroom.
-University of Northern Colorado
What are the obstacles?
increased amount of teacher preparation
technology issues
Product Examples
In the flipped classroom, students can complete products at home and at school.
Product Examples
Please look back your packet, while we discuss.
What does a typical day in a Flipped Classroom look like?
Remember, even in a modified flipped classroom, you strive for 10% Direct Instruction and 90% Facilitation.
Ideally, this would look like...
There are hiccups from time to time, and acting solely as a facilitator can be exhausting, but when it works seamlessly, you are able..
Edmodo is a secure, social learning platform. The interface is very similar to Facebook
Other Useful Tools for "Flipping" your classroom:
Multiple options, work with what you feel comfortable with at first, then expand your toolbox.
Technology Must Haves:
First, you need a Base of Operations
Wiki (pbworks)
Finally, you need to get parents and students onboard
Parent-Teacher Training Night
Open House/Conferences
Facebook (2nd Quarter)
Night Before:
Students have watched a video or viewed a Prezi about a particular story, author, topic or skill
Students complete some sort of product to prove they have watched/viewed the presentation.
They "preload" for class.
Start of Class:
Students gather in groups or with a partner to discuss the online assignment.
This allows me time to check/collect assignments and other school business such as taking attendance, etc.
Already in facilitator mode
Conclude with whole class discussion of topic and transition to activity.
Rest of Class:
Fully acting as Facilitator
Students begin activity.
Activity may be exploratory/inquiry based, or may be product based.
Students will be
working independently
in partnerships
in small groups
To see students completely engaged.
Students are excited to dig in and accept the challenge assigned.
To watch students embrace academic responsibility.
If they don't want it, they won't earn it...
to conference one-to-one and complete progress monitoring.
Teacher Preparation
when you are first starting, putting the time in to make videos, podcasts, and other extra presentations can be very time consuming.
You can supplement from other sources.
You do not have to recreate the wheel the following year.
Technology Issues
What if you have students who do not have access to technology at home?
What if the student's computer/technology malfunctions?
What if students cannot access what you posted online?
At Home:
Long-term assignments
Accelerated Reader/Novel Study
Writing contests/essays
Watching presentations: videos, prezis, etc
complete with guided notes
At School:
Student Choice Projects
(aka: Choice Boards/Tic Tac Toe)
Quarterly assignments (Ex: Digital Book Talk)
Traditional "Homework" assignments
Group Activities: inquiry based or product based
At Home
Guided Notes for presentation
Related Reading Selection
"Fresh Text"
At School:
Here are a few examples:
Inquiry Based--"Jury Duty Activity"
Town Hall
Choice Boards projects
-Separate student and parent log-ins
-notifications on phone, just like with Facebook
-easy to use, seems familiar
-able to create online assessments
-planner, calendar, collaborative groups
limited, free license: 50 students
occasional issues with logging in
certain aspects of the "Assignments" tools are unalterable.
Some tabs don't show up (may be a Chrome vs. IE issue)

story telling tool
A cross between a movie and a power point.
New updates have made Prezi easier for students to learn with additional templates.
Formerly known as Wallwisher
Virtual Topic Board
Excellent for Review, or collaborating on ideas
Great Multi-Genre Product assignment for students to use when doing a report in ANY subject area
extensive FREE version
Takes longer to learn, compared to Padlet or Prezi
integrates creativity with subject matter
multiple skills: inserting sounds/music, voiceovers, editing movies, plotting the cartoon
Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
Second, You need to use a variety of tools.
Methods include:
Smart Notebook Recorder
This has been one of the BEST
parts of flipping!
That's All Folks!
To Recap:
At first, Flipping requires increased planning and creation of presentations for home viewing.
90% Facilitation, 10% Direct Instruction
Use of variety of presentations and products to keep students engaged.
Happy Flipping!
Start after a long break
build up your library of "at home" presentations and products
Do a monthly survey.
BE FLEXIBLE--sometimes, half a class might have technology problems, and you have to modify on your feet.
Be willing to try new forms of technology.
