An Open and Connected Course for Faculty Development

Unit 5 - Plan a Flipped Lesson

Remember: English or Spanish is fine on all submissions.

Post your submissions to your own blog and upload your YouTube video. We recommend that you advertised your posts via Twitter with the hashtag #openflip and place a comment at the bottom of this page to generate traffic to your content.

Plan a Flipped Lesson

Prepare a plan for your first flipped lesson. Note that this unit is two weeks long to allow others to "catch up" and work around all of our busy schedules.

Please submit the following:

  • Title/Topic of Lesson
  • Description of learning objective, what do you want the students to understand after this lesson?
  • What is the pre-class content? This can be research, reading, watching a video or something else that prepares them for the activity in class. You need to stress to students that it is an active process: take notes from the video/reading, etc.
  • How will you encourage (close to) full participation of your students on the pre-class content? WSQ or a survey? A quick 1 minute video by them of their summary/questions?
  • What are you planning to do in the classroom to actively apply the learning or dig deeper into the topic?
  • How are you going to evaluate the activity afterwards? As appropriate you could be testing learning of skills/knowledge and/or a survey of their reflection/opinion on this type of learning environment.
  • Your reflection on the process. This can be as short or long as you like and of course will not happen until after this course is over. Just record your experience for your benefit and for others perhaps.

Remember, people (teachers/students) take time to adapt to change. Even if you are 100% convinced that Flipping this lesson is the "best thing ever", don't expect immediate enamourment by the students of the method.  See how this works, then based on your results and reflections try another lesson to see how it improves the second time around.

Submission

This (and each of the assignments) is divided into three pieces. I divide them in order of importance (mostly) to our learning as a group.

  1. Discuss here PLEASE!  It is important to have our own reflections on the material but just as important for ourselves and our colleagues is to share our point of view and see those of others. You should at least have a summary of what your submission is.
  2. Post a short (60 seconds - 3 minutes) video screen capture/recording of your reflections on the topic. Please post to YouTube (you can leave it as 'unlisted' or make it public, your choice) and embed that inside your blog post
  3. Post a short essay (How long? Long enough, a single page even) of your thoughts on this to get them into written format. Video is great, but the written word creates a different type of reflection and also is much more amenable to searching. Please post this to your blog and also include in your blog the tag (or category) #Unit5

After Submission, Please Interact

This (and each of the assignments) is divided into three pieces. I divide them in order of importance (mostly) to our learning as a group.

  1. Discuss here PLEASE!  It is important to have our own reflections on the material but just as important for ourselves and our colleagues is to share our point of view and see those of others. You should at least have a summary of what your submission is.
  2. Also, feel free to start using Twitter for discussing with the participants in the course. Remember to use the hashtag #OpenFlip when posting so others in this course will see those posts go by in their Twitter Stream.

    Veo que esta semana ya nos vamos a practicar cómo echar a andar contenidos en aula invertida, pues trataré de usar algunas de las herramientas recomendadas la semana pasada, aun estoy pensando qué podría implementarse por aquello de las carencias de conexión a internet, aunque se supone que en la escuela ya tenemos el mx conectado no siempre funciona y no todos nuestros alumnos cuentan con teléfonos para navegar, así que si alguien tiene sugerencias para mí son bienvenidas.

    EN MI OPINIÓN ES MUY IMPORTANTE PLANIFICAR MEDIANTE EL APRENDIZAJE INVERTIDO CONSIDERANDO LAS CARACTERÍSTICAS DE NUESTROS ESTUDIANTES, PREVIENDO LAS SITUACIONES QUE SE NOS PUEDEN PRESENTAR ASÍ COMO LAS ALTERNATIVAS DE SOLUCIÓN.
    UNA DE LAS POSIBLES COMPLICACIONES QUE SE NOS PUEDE PRESENTAR, LA REPRESENTA EL TIEMPO CALENDARIZADO PREVIAMENTE PARA TRABAJAR DURANTE LOS PARCIALES Y LAS FECHAS ESTABLECIDAS PARA CAPTURAR CALIFICACIONES, LO QUE NOS OBLIGA A IR AVANZANDO EN EL DESARROLLO DE CONTENIDOS TEMÁTICOS CON LO QUE SE COMPLICA EL SER FLEXIBLES CON LOS ESTUDIANTES.

      Mmm, todo eso es cierto sólo dejó un pequeño comentario, Flexibilidad en este modelo NO refiere dejar a consideración del alumno los tiempos de entrega si no:
      1) proporcionar variedad de formatos para acceder al material conceptual (es decir, escrito y visual)
      2) la Flexibilidad del tiempo refiere que cada alumnos decide, dentro del límite de tiempo marcado previo a la clase, en que momento visualizará o leerá su material conceptual
      3) la Flexibilidad de espacio refiere que no sólo es el aula física el lugar donde el alumno puede acceder al contenido y a la retroalimentación por parte del facilitador

      En resumen, la Flexibilidad es uno de los aspectos que transforma al docente, elemento central del aula tradicional, en guía, elemento central del aprendizaje basado en el alumno.
