Integrating Technology:
The Flipped Classroom

What does your
"average day" look like?
Maximizing our time with our students
What is the Flipped Classroom?
How to begin...
Reflection time...
Think about the lesson you taught today...
Why Flip?
Benefits for teachers
Logistics of Implementation
Individual learning space
(usually at home)
Before we get into
making lesson videos...
Practical Tips for
Making Lesson Videos
9 tips for making great videos (Bergmann & Sams)
Keep it short
1-1.5 minutes per grade level
single objective (one topic = one video)
Animate your voice
Voice Inflection
Relax and be yourself (gets easier with time)
Create the video with another teacher
Conversation-style, dialogue
Teachers working together makes it easier when beginning
Add humor
Don’t be afraid to be wacky and add jokes (short)
Don’t waste your students’ time
Keep to your topic
Add annotations
pen annotations (if using PowerPoint)
Add callouts
Zoom in and out
Focuses student
Keep it copyright friendly
Check if you are concerned
What do you want to do more of in class?
What do you wish your class was like?
How many of your students do you get to work with individually on a daily basis?
Are you able to differentiate your support during class time for all your students?
How can you utilize technology to transform your classroom into the type you envision?
Questions to consider...
Flipped learning happens when direct instruction is moved from the
group learning space
to the
individual learning space,
usually via a video that the teacher creates or curates.
Integrating technology to make the
best use of the face-to-face time
we have with our students
Flipped Mindset
Flip 101
A world of possibilities...
Put your "lecture" [direct instruction] on video
Have students do "homework" in class
What is the best use of your face-to-face time with your students?
How do you begin doing those activities in the group learning space?
How can you deepen student learning?
How will you differentiate and individualize instruction for students?
"Flip 101 is what you do.
Flipped mindset is who you are."
~Andrew Thomasson,
English flipped class educator
in North Carolina
Inquiry-based learning
Project-based learning
Asynchronous mastery learning
"Flipped mindset is leveraging whatever tools you have to make your classroom as student-centered and student-directed as possible."
~Andrew Thomasson,
English flipped class educator
in North Carolina
Benefits for students
Work one-on-one with every student, every day
Re-teach in small groups "just in time" when students need it
Create a dynamic, engaging, interactive classroom environment
Focused on student-to-student interactions
Teachers guide and help students individually during class; they may not have any academic support at home
Easy for students to go back and review concepts
Learn at own pace
pause, rewind, re-watch lessons
move ahead with content when mastered
individualized learning
Constant access to material
review & remediate anytime
Active learning
engagement in class activities
hands-on classroom environment
working with peers
managing time
From the mouths of babes...
11 telling quotes

from my students
My ability to
understand the math material has increased by a lot
. I really liked this the best because my grades have been improving nonstop and by being able to understand the concepts and such, it really helped me get that motivational push to do better and succeed because
I really love that feeling when you get a math problem right.
The best thing about the flipped classroom has been just the amount of time that we have in class to work on our work. I really like how the
class is structured to maximize productivity.
I like the
responsibility it places on the individual
to get work done and progress. It makes the person feel like they
have to take action in order to succeed.
I am overall very pleased with the flipped classroom but I like the
that take place as a result. The environment is very different from your normal classroom and it provides me some sanity in my day.
We have the ability to work in groups and with various people who understand different things on different levels.

The schedule isn't so rigid that you are staring at a board in silence for 45 minutes
On top of that, you say hi or ask how each and every one of us are doing EVERY day and that isn't an interaction that we would get in other classes.
I feel like that builds an affirming relationship and an encouraging environment, both of which are lacking in high school for the most part.
What's most helpful is that
you're able to help us more efficiently
as compared to those who teach with the traditionally classroom. This is because instead of stopping and waiting for those who don't understand the material,
you can spend the whole 45 minutes answering our questions and making sure we understand it.
That's probably the most helpful part because then you are able to understand it twice as better than the traditional classroom.
I've enjoyed the learning experience and the classroom I've been lucky to be a part of. I'd say this is one of the most
hands-on, interactive, not to mention fun classrooms I've been in.
It may have been hard to adjust to but nevertheless a good experience.
The videos help a lot because they go through every problem step by step and
when we don't get something we can just discuss it in class the next day.
I like the whole
"work-together" environment
that it creates. It simply
engages us (students) in the learning.
I like how the Flipped Classroom is new and
isn't like any boring old class.
The chance to
interact with classmates within the class while still getting work done is almost a dream come true.
I love how
interactive you are with us
and how you keep most of us focused all the time and on track.
It's not like the others.
Homework feels like learning instead of a grind.
Break down the lesson
into its parts
Teacher-centered vs. Student-Centered
Passive learning vs. Active Learning
Choose the parts
that could have been covered in the “individual learning space”
List out other activities
that could be done in class if certain parts would moved out of group learning space
Group learning space
(in class)
What will students do in their individual learning space?
How will you hold students accountable for their work?
What if students don’t have technology access at home?
What if students don’t watch the video at home?
How do you develop TWIRLS in your students?
How do you facilitate discussion among your students?
How do you facilitate practice work?
How do you manage assessment?
How do you differentiate within the classroom (seating arrangement)
How will what you do in class connect to the expectations of the Common CORE?
deeper understanding, making connections, understanding meaning
Watch -
watch video, take notes, pause/rewind/rewatch as needed
Summarize -
respond to guided summary questions to process material
Question -
ask at least one HOT question to bring to class
WSQ holds students accountable for learning content. I check for:
Notes (in guided packet)
Summary (online; embedded below video)
Question (in notes packet)
Other options: embed quizzes in video
Assignments organized with WSQ chart
Video assignments
Practice assignments
Student-created work
Unit Projects
Choices for access:
Computer or mobile device with internet
Computer without internet - flash drive
Burn videos to DVD
Use school computers
Have them watch it in class before joining class activity
Communicate with students and parents about purposes behind watching video at home
Most important thing: Lesson is watched in individual learning space where they can learn at their own pace and in their own time. If this is at school, that's okay!
Time for some Q/A!
What can the video be on?
Content (direct instruction)
Directions for project or lab
“Pain Points” (instructions for APA, accessing student website, etc)
Should you make your own videos?
What technology do I need to make the videos?

*Remove instruction from group learning space by utilizing technology such as videos, websites, and other resources to help students learn.
Give students choice in how and where they learn.
Passive learners →
active learners
What does this mean?
Students actively engaged in their learning for the entire class period
Students collaborating with their peers and receiving individual or small group help from the teacher as needed
How is it done?
*Develop engaging in class learning activities, collaborative assignments, and practice problems.
Lower Order Thinking →
Higher Order Thinking
What does this mean?
Class time focused on applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating.
Any knowledge or information dissemination is completed out of the group learning space.
How is it done?
*Continue to develop and revamp in class activities to challenge student thinking and learning at deeper levels.
Promote inquiry and discovery, as well as project-based learning, as you see fit in your content area.
"Internal Flip" (my CCSS course)
"Flipping" does not equal "video". It's a completely different mindset about how you go about everything in your classroom. It's always thinking "what's the best use of the face to face time I have with my students"... and then going and doing that. A lot of times, that means offloading the teacher-centered, passive learning, LOT instruction and activities to video. But you don't have to use video every time or every night to "flip"
