2. Outline Introduce and explain my perspective on the flipped classroom Why I started flipping my classrooms What does flipped learning look like for my classes across a normal teaching week Conditions under which flipped classrooms lead to better outcomes Research supporting the flipped classroom Challenges of the flipped classroom Future additions to my flipped classroom 3. A little about me Wellington High School 2005 2013 ICT lead teacher Head of Faculty 2008 2013 Rongotai College 2014 Head of Department Former semi professional gamer Video game reviewer Fly around the world competing in various gaming tournaments 4. Changes in education that have occurred in the last ten years What will education look like for my daughter through the next ten years? What can I do in the classroom that will pave the way for teachers and students of the future? 5. What is flipped learning? The flipped classroom inverts traditional teaching methods, delivering lesson content online and moving homework tasks into the classroom 6. Blooms taxonomy and the flipped classroom Creatin Evaluatin Analysing Applying Understanding Remembering Students viewing video content prior to lessons allow us to shift the lower levels of Bloom's taxonomy out of the class Enabling us to spend more class time at the upper end of the taxonomy, with tasks that ask students to apply, analyse, evaluate, and create 7. Key elements of a flipped classroom 1. Content creation 2. Student viewing of content 3. Provision for students to digest content 4. Provision for teachers to check student understanding 5. Provide in class activities that focus on higher levels of cognitive work 8. 1. Content creation What type of content do I want to create? Videos, podcasts, readings, Prezi etc.. Am I going to make my own content or use content that belongs to another teacher? What is a technique that I am comfortable with or a software I know of that isnt too complicated? 9. Software used to create video content Explain Everything Camtasia Studio Educreations Screencast-o-matic Microsoft Powerpoint 10. 2. Student viewing of content How am I going to host and present my content? What access does my institute allow? Does my institute provide a company wide platform that might work? (Moodle, MyPortfolio, Google Docs etc) What offers the least amount of barriers for my students? 11. 3. Provision for students to digest content Probably the most important element How do I know my students have watched the video and digested the content? WSQ sheets watch, summarise, question 12. 4. Provision for teachers to check student understanding Youre certain your students have observed, read or listened to your content. But how can you be sure they understand it? Focus questions Student led discussions 13. 5. Provide in class activities that focus on higher levels of cognitive work What am I going to do with all of this extra lesson time made available? Guide on the side Homework activities application of concepts in the real world Support of peers and teacher Create, analyse, evaluate and apply 14. Teacher and student benefits of a flipped classroom Automated differentiation Increased student support More engaged classes with increased student student interactions Content is always available and accessible Teacher benefits Lessons now occur at the students preferred pace Content can be accessed from anywhere More assistance from teachers during class time Increased interaction and stronger learning relationships with peers Student benefits 15. Why flip my classes? Boredom I felt I was doing a poor job in meeting the variety of student needs in my classroom Looking for creative, authentic and innovative ways to incorporate technology 16. A variety of student needs? 17. Flipped learning in a normal school week for me Four hours of senior Physical Education per week Two theory lessons and two practical lessons For every theory lesson there will be one video to watch lasting anywhere from 5 15 minutes. Students are required to watch the video prior to the scheduled class. Videos are hosted on YouTube and submitted to Moodle, Facebook or Edmodo New theory lessons have a fairly high practical component as the focus shifts from a traditional theory lesson, to one where we focus on working together to apply specific concepts in real world contexts 18. Traditional vs flipped classroom Traditional classroom Activity Time Introduce session 5 minutes Link prior learning / lessons 10 minutes Teach / introduce / lecture new content 30 40 minutes Rush through quick learning activity 10 minutes Flipped classroom Activity Time Chart completed WSQ sheets while students discuss question 5 minutes Student led questioning and discussion 10 minutes Teacher led focus questions 10 minutes Guided learning activities or practical tasks 35 minutes 19. Learning opportunities of the flipped classroom (University of Queensland) Concept Exploration Video / audio recordings, content rich websites, simulations, readings etc Making Meaning Quizzes, focus questions, blogging, online discussions, student created videos Demonstration / Application Personalised projects, problem based learning, experiments, presentations, role plays etc 20. Conditions under which flipped classrooms lead to better outcomes Solid ICT infrastructure Student access to devices and internet Practical based lessons consisting of higher level cognitive tasks 21. Wellington High School Compulsory BYOD for last four years and campus wide wireless access Five large modern computer suites Smaller library computer suite 4 x PE Department iPads 22. Rongotai College Optional BYOD this year and campus wide wireless access Three large modern computer suites Three portable netbook carts as well as a range of bookable Chromebooks Smaller library computer suite (fourteen PCs) Smaller PE department computer suite (six PCs) 23. Research supporting the flipped classroom Very little qualitative or quantitative research A lot of anecdotal evidence suggesting that teachers who are flipping their classrooms report higher student achievement, increased student engagement and better attitudes toward learning and school 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 NA A M E Biophysical standard results 2011 - 2013 2011 2012 2013 24. Challenges of the flipped classroom Access to the internet Student buy in Exposure Time and effort 25. Things I would like to implement or consider in the near future.. 26. Summary Sage on the stage vs. guide on the side Greater opportunity for higher level thinking Consider how we might approach the five identified elements of the flipped classroom What conditions allow for the best results in the flipped environment? Consider the challenges how can we minimise the barriers and enhance the enablers? 27. Final thought Dont mistake activity for achievement - John Wooden
