Flipping The Classroom

There is lots of talk about flipping.

I have noticed that many people I talk to (mostly higher ed faculty) think…

flipping= putting the lecture online

(instead of in the class).

I suggest that flipping is about getting students to learn content out of class

so when they come to class we can do something to use that content knowledge.

But how do we encourage students to learn the content?

Flipping is really no different than what most of us have always done in our classes…

we just don’t make them only read the textbook…

and we don’t call it “homework.”

So here is my take on flipping…

    • Sure! I would start off simple. You could make it a game at first…. Like a scavenger hunt or a show and tell. If it can be incorporated into their everyday life, they are more likely to do it. Also, if it’s got a fun twist they are more likely to do it. At that age you will also need buy in from the parents. Which might be more welcome than traditional homework.
      Let me know how it goes!

    • I flipped my third grade classroom this past year and both kids and parents loved it!!!! I’ve started a new blog this summer to document some things I’ve learned and am trying along the way. The blog is still in its beginning stages. Feel free to follow me at http://www.myflippedclassroom.blogspot.com. I love collaboration, ideas, suggestion, and support.
