This weekend we are going to focus our discussions around the ideas of flipping classroom instruction. There are many examples of flipped instruction circulating the edusphere, some pedagogically sound, some junk. Using real world examples & ones we create together in class, we will attempt to discover best practices in reverse instruction for the Math and Science classroom.
- Please review the embedded infographic for a brief introduction to The Flipped Classroom – You may have to click on it for full view.
- Please do some independent research on Reverse Instruction/Flipped Classroom model. Find several journal articles – something along the lines of this arcticle, (feel free to use it even though I am using it for my blog post!) and save it to your Diigo library. We will use these for our blog reflection posts.
- Be prepared to use your personal devices (iPhones, iPads, Droids, video cameras, laptops, or whatever you have with you/feel comfortable bringing) to start building your Science/Math lesson plans which use technology and media in transformative ways.
