FlipTech2020 Revisited – Self-Checking Digital Task Cards

Looking back at what the FlipTech 2020 presenters had to teach us this past summer and applying it to the rest of 2020 and beyond.

In mid-July The Flipped Learning Network hosted an fully online conference. Presenters were gathered from around the world and submitted short presentations to be viewed prior to the live discussion portion of the event. The basic idea was to find a way to share “What works in 2020” with as many people as possible within the pandemic environment. What was supposed to have been a small gathering of educators sharing and discussing turned into a 5 day marathon of professional development and free flow of ideas. This series takes a look back at the presentations and some of the conversations from #FlipTech2020.

Check out the amazing pre-work sessions Lacey compiled from Introduction to Session #3 – there is some great material in these bite sized presentations. Then take a look at the 1 hour discussion hosted by FLN Board Member Emeritus, Helaine Marshall for even more information and applications.

Whether it is distance learning or 1:1 digital instruction, digital self-checking task cards are an easy way to encourage student ownership. These task cards allow for students to check their own understanding in a non-threatening manner after taking notes. As such, this method supports the flipped classroom model in reinforcing concepts discussed in the class video lecture. As we move forward into a new formats of instruction, adding this simple tool to your toolbox can revolutionize how you encourage student ownership both in the physical classroom and in the digital realm.

Does this sound like something that you might be interested in developing a presentation for?  Here (potentially) is your chance. The FLN is considering a spring 2021 version of FlipTech and a little further into this series we may be opening an opportunity for you to participate.  For now read, view, and enjoy the articles in this series with an eye to how you might participate later this spring or summer.
