Intentional Content

Remember: English or Spanish is fine on all submissions.

Now for the topic: Pillar of Flipping - Intentional Content

Flipped Learning Educators continually think about how they can
use the Flipped Learning model to help students develop conceptual
understanding, as well as procedural fluency. They determine what
they need to teach and what materials students should explore on their
own. Educators use Intentional Content to maximize classroom time in
order to adopt methods of student-centered, active learning
strategies, depending on grade level and subject matter.

Consider your current status on thoughts on the following three statements:

  • I prioritize concepts used in direct instruction for learners to access on their own.
  • I create and/or curate relevant content (typically videos) for my students.
  • I differentiate to make content accessible and relevant to all students.

Resources

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) #Unit3

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.

This Week's Activities

    • Monday: The weekly assignment will be released as well as a short video about the week.
    • Tuesday-Sunday: Reflect on the content of the week and start publishing your blog post and video. Remember you can go back and edit blog post anytime and we encourage you to comment on other participant's blogs. Post earlier in the week to drive more traffic to your blog.
    • Wednesday (morning) (10am-10:30am) Our morning chat is scheduled (guests pending) to discuss the 3rd pillar and whatever else you would like to talk about. See the links up at the top of the page. This will be recorded live (please participate in the chat and/or over Twitter) as well as archived for viewing later."
    • Thursday (evening): (7pm-7:30pm) Same idea as morning section, guests to be determined.
    • Friday: Office Hours, I am leaving this more open and not scheduled. You can always make an appointment to meet with Ken (in person or online) at https://kenbauer.youcanbook.me/
    • Sunday/Monday(noon): Post your weekly submission BEFORE noon on Monday of the previous week work. If you can post earlier that is even better to generate conversations.

Questions?

If you have questions, contact Ken. The best mode is via Twitter by tagging Ken in a post (@ken_bauer) or sending a Twitter direct message (DM).  The other option is via email with kenbauer at gmail dot com.

    Si exactly.. How so we engage our students how do we motivate them to do their class work elsewhere. What will we do with all that available time…endless possibilities…

    Interesting resources for learning, great tips about mistakes, probably have done all. I know I had my content well administered, students have it before hand, it is relevant, but in practice I was expecting perfection and it didn’t happen, now I know it is not necessary and it happen even to experts. Now I will like to try flipping again and see what happens. I am optimistic!

    A mí me parece que, lo más difícil, es hacer los videos myself. Sé que las fuentes aquí sugeridas dicen que lo mantengamos simple pero es que ¿cómo hacer un buen video para una generación multimedia? A mí me da un poco de pánico

      Alicia, a mi también me da un poco de pánico (o más bien mucho), tal vez porque soy demasiado aprehensiva y crítica conmigo misma. Constantemente estoy pensando que si realmente las cosas las estoy haciendo bien, si estoy siendo clara, si están entendiendo, si explico bien, y hasta si me veo o no bien en el video. A cada momento me asaltan las dudas y a veces dudo si seré buena o no en esto.
