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.

    Esta semana asigné la clase flip de mi curso, y lo primero que recibo son cuestionamientos de los alumnos! muestran total apatia a este tipo de actividad. algunos que ya han participado en alguna clase de este tipo no se estresan pero en general si se sorprenden y les causa temor.

      Hola María Luisa, me parece que es una reacción relativamente normal al cambio. No te preocupes, igual me pasó a mí. Ne general, los alumnos son más fácilmente capaces de adaptarse al cambio, pero no quiere decir que les “encante” de entrada. Me parece que la experiencia les brindará la oportunidad de darse cuenta de que pueden aprender de otra forma y que el timepo de la clase de aprovechó más si ellos realizan esta actividad previa. Me da mucho gusto que ya hayas hecho tu actividad. No te desanimes, porque me parece que haber dado el primer paso es lo más importante.

    Great points here, I have much to say but I really need to force myself to let all of you express your thoughts even if they are silent in your own head and not here on my comment sections. Reflect on your blog, you are all doing great work and this reflection (closed or open) is very useful.

    Después de haber probado el aula invertida, tuve muchos aprendizajes y ahora sé que debe de cambiar, no creo que tenga la respuesta a todo. Sé que podría hacer mejor con respecto a la vez anterior y seguramente cada vez que lo haga, aprenderé y tendré nuevas perspectivas sobre que hacer la próxima vez para mejorar. Por lo pronto me llevo el poner un “gancho” que estimule al alumno a realizar la actividad fuera del aula, a venir preparado porque llegando a clase habrá “algo” que le redituará el haber estado preparado para ello. No necesariamente un examen rápido, pero si alguna actividad que se pueda evaluar de alguna forma. Ya les contaré como me va… saludos
