A brief update on the state of the Flipped Classroom. It gives a brief overview on the rise of the Flipped Classroom model as well as tips on how to implement it.
Well, the feedback came and we heard it loud and clear: you would have liked more time to try out the skills presented to you by our amazing presenters Nadia and Greg. So tomorrow’s meeting will be devoted to trying out GoodNotes with Google Drive and following Greg’s recipe for an explainer video.
Here is what you will need:
Greg and Nadia will be circulating through the room to help you with any problem you might be facing.
Good luck and see you tomorrow!
Inspired by a comment in Wednesday’s Tech session, I have decided to dedicate Friday’s posts to all things Flipped. This website seems to be the mothership of the Flipped learning method- from resources, to literature reviews, they even have a sign up sheet for Flipeed Classroom open houses where you can attend a flipped classroom in another school or (cough, cough, I am talking to you Mr. Flipped) even host an open Flipped classroom!
Something that might be of interest to English and French teachers is an upcoming webinar in February called Flipped Lit on Tuesday February 25, 5:00 pm. Oh, and yes, they are free!
Check it out and let me know what you think!

Flipped classrooms are one of the more popular trends we’ve seen since Edudemic was created, and it is certainly one of the most long- lasting.

Check out the hand dandy info graphic – it gives a nice low down on how it helps, and how teachers and students are responding:
The article below made me think of a conversation I had the other day with Mr. Math and Multi media about how it was going with his flipped classroom. He was telling me that since he required the students to take notes on the videos they must watch at home, it has been way more successful. He then took it a step further and not only required his students to take notes, but to post them to their math blogs.
All the students in his class (and now all of you) can benefit from their notes. The fact that they are public I suspect also contributes to the quality. I have made a pinterest board of all their blogs so you can peruse a sampling of their notes, or click on an individual pin to go their blog.
This is a great example of how you can leverage the use of the iPad (or any device) in the class, from watching the videos or presentations on the iPad, to making notes, to posting them on a blog. All this can be done with great ease on one device.
Below is an article on another way one can use the iPad and collaborative tools in order to create a class pool of notes.
Alan November elevated the “Official Scribe” as one of the roles that empower student learners. I see the role of the scribe as follows: The official scribe plays an important role in the classroom…

Mr. Scruton, our beloved math and multimedia teacher, has made a screen video using two iPads to show his Grade 7 multimedia class how to make a slide show presentation. This is a good example of how the iPad can be useful in a flipped classroom.
Here is what he had to say about how he made it:
Here is the link to a vid that I made by taking a video of one iPad with another iPad. I edited the film in iMovie, then exported. The exported file was way to big (on medium). I opted to jing the playback window from iMovie. There are some minor problems with stops (from the playback of iMovie), but otherwise is ok quality at very low size.
