Transcript of What is a flipped classroom?

What does this look like for students?
What do the students do when they watch the video?
What do you do in class?
The Flipped Classroom;
Flipped Classroom
At it's core the idea is to take out direct instruction from the classroom and to move the application of the knowledge back in.
Forest Grove School District's Parent Academy 2014
More about me:
Handouts and extras:
It also asks that teachers rethink the valuable face to face time with students.
Most teachers will post the links on a learning management system (LMS) like edmodo or schoology.
Students will watch a video online at home (on a computer, laptop, tablet, or even a smart phone) anything that has internet access.
When can students watch the videos?
Usually the teachers like this to be done as homework at home.
If internet is an issue you can usually watch at school, in the library, in a teachers classroom (before school, during lunch or advisory, or after school)
What if a student doesn't have internet at home?
Teachers can copy the videos to a thumb drive or even to a CD.
Or you could find the time at school to utilize the free access to the internet.
Local library or business (Starbucks, McDonalds, etc.)
Some teachers are also finding time for the videos in class.
Collaborative Activities, Writing and Literature proficiencies that we have been working towards in class together (regardless of the class you will be working on applying the knowledge learned from the videos).
Discussion of important topics/content
How does the teacher know what to put in the video?
In a proficiency based program teachers use backwards design linked to the standards.
Once you know the ending summative assessment you can better breakdown how to deliver the content.
Teachers usually also want students to do something when they watch these videos at home make sure you know what that is to help facilitate the work at home.
Not All Flipped Classrooms are the Same!
Some teachers create their own material?
Some teachers deliver the content with videos, articles, podcasts?
Some teachers use previously made videos?
Jon Bergman says to keep videos to 1.5 minutes per grade level. (For sure 15 minutes or less)
How long should the videos be?
2-3 videos per week.
math you might work through an example problem, or learn a new formula or concept
Each teacher is different...
most will take notes
Science you might prepare for a lab by learning safety precautions, or learn a new concept.
Do the WSQ!
atch and take notes
ummarize the content
Think HOT!
The Power of the Pause Button
I teach the students the proper behavior for watching these videos.
They should watch on their own
Go at their own pace, teach the power of the pause button
This style of teaching is great for ALL students, they can rewind, pause for their own pace of note taking, and re-watch!
First Few Days of School
I model these ideas in class before unleashing the students on their own.
I like to watch a video that I made explaining these concepts in class. (It is five minutes long)
I have a student come up to my SMART board and control the video, and pause it when they need to.
Guided Notes or Not?
Guided notes are a way for students to know exactly what to write down and where. Just look for the pencil!
Going Digital with Google Forms
This saved my sanity! Grading is now a breeze!
Flipping with Sophia.Org
One place to send your students it holds all your videos, google forms and additional links and resources.
Track student usage.
Provide short formative assessment in small quizzes on the content.
Organize tutorials into playlists.
Tutorial is one lesson
Playlist is a unit of content
Learning Management Systems & Google Sites
Edmodo and Schoology
Used in the classroom to push stuff out to the students in a blended learning environment.
Also a great place for students at home for a central log in and contact with the teacher.
Google Sites
One place for parents to go to for information on class.
Turn off your cell phone, close other browsers- limit all other distractions.
What happens if...
My internet breaks down at night and I thought it was working...
Come in the morning
with a
flash drive
. You'll watch the video in class in the morning and get the videos on flash drive for the rest of the week!
I am absent
You still must keep up with the videos that your classmates are watching and come prepared with the notes when you return.

I did not watch the video before class time (for whatever reason)
Let the teacher know when they do homework check.
I did not complete my S (summary) or Q (question) parts of the homework
You must complete it before joining class that day or you will receive late credit for the assignment. This information is critical for the teacher!
More Questions answered...
How is the homework graded?
Currently the students submit a digital form.
I grade their summaries and questions in a digital format.
(so the better the notes the better they will do on their tests!).
Their notes can be used in class on any in class work and proficiencies
How do the students know when they have homework?
Posted on LMS (learning management system like edmodo or schoology)
Posted on class calendar on google sites
Tweet reminders or Remind 101
Research, Theory, and Background...
Why did I specifically flip my language arts class?
Engagement and motivation
Finding time for everything! STEM, PBL (project based learning), proficiencies, writing, debates, and novels!
Embracing technology for STEM
STEM integration (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)
My own reflections...
Common Misconceptions…

Homework motivation
My students do the homework, it is actually a higher amount of students doing their work as compared prior to the flip
The feedback shows that they enjoy it.
Offer videos on thumb drives too!
Technology and Accessibility...
I offer a “Viewing Party” every Wednesday for people to catch up
The students at NAMS all have iPads this year
One of the people I use as a resource for flipping has only TWO computers in her room, and she is on her third year of flipping.
Even last year when the students didn't have iPads I had a high work turn in rate! 70-90% on average!
The data shows they are going back and watching the videos if they need to see the content again!
They re-watch!
In fact an online school in South Africa is using my videos for instruction. Our class has become global!
51,365 views total on the videos for my class!
Some videos have 8,000+ views
I have also been approved and added to YouTube EDU!
93% of the students felt that the videos, notes, and in class activities were the most important and helpful part of the flipped classroom model.
98% felt like they were putting in a good amount of effort in class, so a slight improvement from the “at home” work ethic
93% of my students felt that after watching all the concepts on the videos and doing a walk through of the test in class were confident in their ability to take their first attempt.
In-class Effort Data From Last Year:
2012-2013 OAK's Reading Data
2011-2012 school year homework turn in was about 50-60%
Current Data
This is consistent with the majority of the school’s data even last year 2012-2013
Now I see on average 70-80% turn in
I also do a lot more interventions then two years ago as the homework is critical to student success
2013 Survey; In Their Own Words...
“I think that working with other people encourages us to really dig deep into the topic we are on.”
“I think we cover more material (or have the potential to cover more material) throughout the school year with flipped learning. Not only do we have the opportunity to participate in more interactive, interesting lessons and activities during class, but we can listen to the lectures at home in a more comfortable environment, which makes it easier to process and actually follow the lecture/lesson. I personally like the fact that we can learn in our pajamas, and lie sprawled across a relaxing bed, all the while improving our knowledge in the different areas of language arts. I unfortunately have not been able to enjoy this very often, as I have a major procrastination issues when it comes to homework…”
“The video is extremely helpful for me because I learn by listening and images.”
“Since the homework is quick I have time to do other things. I still learn a lot though. And because we do most of the learning at home there is time to do fun activities in class.”
In April we had our Spring Parent/Teacher Conferences and I was able to ask the parents for some feedback on the flipped model. Here are some of their comments:
“It is great that she will have a better opportunity to discuss the theory or the concepts in class w/the instructor. This way they don't have to waste time (so little they've got).”
“I have noticed my student enjoys the homework does the homework several times a week, and I feel like it is a positive and exciting change to homework.”
What have you noticed at home with your student and watching the video homework?
Parent Feedback from Last Year...
(2013 Spring conferences)
“She jumps on it right away.”
“Homework is not an issue, where in other cases can be a challenge - especially if he is stuck on a topic or problem. Watching YouTube videos with the academic content and taking notes during the process is a great use of time.”
Questions and Comments from parents:
“I think it's great as it is the model of the future.”
“It has been good for me to hear the information that is being given for the class so that I know what is expected and can help with the homework. I love this class model!”
Face to Face Time, How Does That Change?
Discussion in class on nightly homework
Activities and application in class
In my class specifically:
Proficiencies worked out together
Reading and discussion time
Essays done together in class where help can happen whenever a question appears.
One on one intervention for those students that need help
On the conference handout site I have provided a symbaloo full of links that might be helpful to answer any additional questions or get more information.
You must make up the in class work on your own within the next day, coming in for tutoring if you need further explanation from the video or in class work.
You will receive late credit for the assignment.
You will lose out on the opportunity:
to ask questions,
to work with your classmates, and
to get my individual attention.

If time is available, students will watch the video in class and will
have to complete the in class work and the NEW video at home that night
what is it and how to help at home.
