Why I Flipped My Classroom – Katie Gimbar

“There is no such thing as THE flipped class.” “Anyone who blindly adopts "The Flipped Classroom" (or inquiry, or lecturing, or unschooling, or whatever) model and never modifies it to meet the needs of his or her students will blindly lead his or her students into educational ruin.”

-Aaron Sams

Here's a little known fact. Research shows that our children, no matter what their age, ethnic background, or where they live, want to feel engaged at school. They want to feel like they belong and that what they do at school matters. Not just to themselves, but to their parents and teachers too. -Published on April 1, 2010 by Michael Ungar, Ph.D. in Nurturing Resilience

Where Did It Start?  2007 – Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams of Woodland Park HS in Colorodo  Online video accessibility and increased student access to technology has made it more possible

What Flipped Classroom Is Not  It is not just putting lectures online  Khan Academy, TedED, or other online content with no active classroom component  Excuse for teachers to not be engaged in their classroom

 One size fits all – differentiate classroom activities  EASY – a lot of work and planning go into using this method

It is NOT all about the video! “Thoughtful and innovative teachers have been flipping their classrooms by making students responsible for content coverage before class and focusing on content application or practice in class without videos for more than a century.� -Julie Schell, see more at:

Benefits  Instant feedback and support from teacher as classroom coach  Lots of opportunity for check in with ALL students  Less frustration from students (homework) – teacher there for questions  Students can watch, rewind, fast forward videos for understanding  Students support peers

 Encourages interaction and collaboration  Differentiated instruction/adaptable to individual students  Students are thinking critically  MORE TIME

Drawbacks  Teachers may not know how to create videos or may be nervous about it  Quality of videos a challenge  Making videos is time commitment and technology must be available  Organizing videos takes plan  Classroom activities must change and a lot of planning may be necessary

 Student reaction or parent reaction could be negative – takes student motivation (unprepared students)  All students may not have access  No feedback during lecture

Students and Parents  May explain concept and teach students to watch videos at home – how to write questions, pause, take notes  WSG – Watch, Summary, Question (HOT) by Crystal Kirch  Outline to fill in or questions

 Complete questions on Google or feedback on site like Edmodo  Quizzes (short quiz at beginning of class)  Discussion at beginning of class

 Sophia – how long were they logged in?  Introducing to Students – what others have done Ryan Friederich

Class Time - Learning Activities  Not direct instruction, teacher circulating  Discussion  Project Based Learning  Collaborative Projects  Debate  Creation of content – could be video  Writing

 Peer Teaching  Labs  Small Group Work

 Address higher levels of DOK Chart  Mix and Match

Flow Chart Resource – Crystal Kirch

What if They Don’t Watch the Lessons?  How do you assess if they did the assignment?  Have them submit questions

 Take a short quiz  Activity that indicates student watched the lesson/lecture.

IF THEY DID NOT DO IT - Send them to the computer in the class to watch the lesson.

Real Teacher Examples     

Flip It ALL?  Flip what makes sense  May be that only some elements of model work for you  May wish to do with only certain classes  Start with one assignment one day  Let them watch in class if accessibility an issue

 Let the students make videos  DO WHAT WORKS FOR YOU AND YOUR STUDENTS

To Curate or Create  Ted-Ed, Khan Academy, curation sites like Sophia lets you quiz with Google Forms  May take LESS time to make your own than look for perfect video  Since you are the teacher, student may feel more engaged if you are the teacher on the video  Style up to you – may not want yourself in the video so just screencast  May choose to mix between your own videos and other good content
