This was my first year implementing the Flipped Classroom model. I decided to start writing about it. Thinking no one would read it, I stopped.
Ken Bauer encouraged me to continue, not for other people, but for myself. I know now that he was right. Putting thoughts into writing always helps think clearly.
I know that my lessons need lots of improvement as I prepare for next year. Thinking carefully about the process of Flipped Learning, and reading many resources, made me realize I need to focus on every element I could think of.
In my opinion, the elements of a great flipped lesson are:
- Interesting Videos
- Meaningful learning experiences
- Reflection and assessment
Please share your experience and advice. They will be very helpful to me for improving my lessons.
To be continued….
I have been “playing” with the flipped classroom model for a few years now, but have just started to pull lots of different strategies together this year – differentiated Learning Intentions/Success Criteria with Instructional Videos and Learning Tasks linked to each. I use Google Classroom to push out differentiated learning tasks involving links to websites, and shared Google Drive folders to push out the Videos and Individualised Learning Plans. I have just started playing with EdPuzzle, to improve my formative assessment of what the students have learnt, or not, from the videos.
Thanks for your comment. You mentioned some great tools. I need to get more into personalized learning, haven’t done that yet.
