“The flipped classroom model is a blended learning strategy I use to present my vocabulary, writing, and grammar instruction online. Students watch videos at home where they can control the pace of their learning, then they come to class prepared to apply that information in collaborative student-centered activities.
One thing I emphasize when I lead professional development for teachers is the importance of flipping and engaging. Instead of simply consuming information, I want students to think critically about that information. This requires that I design flipped lessons that encourage students to ask questions, analyze the information, and discuss concepts with peers asynchronously online to begin making sense of the information they are receiving at home. There are a variety of ways to do this. I authored a resource for MindShift titled “Teachers’ Guide to Using Videos,” which includes a section describing a range of strategies a teacher can employ to flip and engage.
A newer tool I’m excited to use with students come fall is EDpuzzle. Here’s how it works!” To read further please click here:http://catlintucker.com/2015/06/flipped-classroom-engaging-students-with-edpuzzle/

“Web has become pervasive, it influences people’s lives and facilitates partnerships. The process of writing blog posts and commenting is the fine example by which the Internet has allowed people to participate and share their ideas in the marketplace.
Educators have also made the best use of web technologies in form of blogging, to share their ideas, experience and connect with the educators across the world. In fact the educational blogs have become one of the most powerful and effective tool for teacher professional development.
Since the idea of the flipping classroom has gained popularity, a lot of educators have become flipped learning practitioners and they also share their views and insights through blogs with others to help them learn more and avoid mistakes. In this article, you will find six great blogs that you must follow if you a teacher flipping your classroom.” To read further please click here: http://edtechreview.in/trends-insights/insights/1921-blogs-to-get-insights-into-flipped-learning

“A few months ago I created and posted a video about making flipped video lessons onVideoNot.es. Since then I’ve made videos about more tools for creating flipped video lessons. The most recent video is about Vialogues which allows you to build online discussions around videos hosted online and videos that you have saved on your computer. The video about using Vialogues and the video about VideoNot.es have been added to a new YouTube playlist that I’ve titled Creating Flipped Lessons. Six videos are currently in the playlist and I’ll be adding more as I produce new screencasts. The playlist is embedded below.”To read further please click here:http://practicaledtech.com/2015/04/19/practical-ed-tech-tip-of-the-week-six-ways-to-create-flipped-video-lessons/

“Have you ever considered flipping your classroom and engaging students in Project Based Learning at the same time? As I study these learning processes I see possibilities that allow the two to not only coexist, but also complement each other. How might this work? They do share similar emphasis on higher order thinking skills. Another not so obvious way the two can complement each other is based on productivity and time. Let’s take a closer look.
As you might know Project Based Learning (PBL) is a dynamic process that allows students to learn and understand content at Bloom’s highest level while taking an active part in their learning. PBL provides for deep inquiry, which leads to rich and powerful understanding. Through authentic experiences, and a driving question that engages students with content standards, PBL has the ability to be a delivery method for the student centered classroom. In PBL, formative learning activities are scaffolded throughout the project. This allows for productivity between content delivery, facilitation, and student production. Let’s consider a way to allow for even more student productivity in PBL, which can exponentially spiral learning, How can this increased productivity for both teacher and learner take place? A flipped infusion just might be the answer.”To read further please click here:

“Flipped Learning is becoming a popular strategy in many classrooms. When we flip our classroom, we make way for face-to-face time to be about deep discussion, questioning and thinking.
Did you know that Microsoft Office has the perfect tool for creating flipped content for your classroom that can feed back analytics and student understanding? To add to this it’s all part of Office PowerPoint 2013, it’s free and is really easy to use.
What is Office Mix?
Office Mix offers a free solution to the creation of flipped learning tutorials and content. The whole workflow from creation to assessment can be achieved through this one tool. Below is an example workflow that educators may use.” To read further please click here:
“The traditional model of teach we’re familiar with is that of the teacher in front of the class, lecturing and assigning homework for students to do once they leave the classroom. The teacher has full control over their learning process. Or do they?
Teachers who seem to have full control over their student’s learning often run against the wall of school-day ennui. So, here’s the concept that’s been making a buzz all through the education world these days: Why not flip it?
Put control over the classroom on the hands of the students, not the teachers. Utilize a variety of online teacher resources (many of which are free!) instead of paper printouts and repetitive lectures. The flipped classroom or sideways classroom promises to make the experience far less tiresome for both teachers and students.” To read further please click here: http://www.edudemic.com/flipped-classroom-or-sideways/
“I believe we need to move from the teacher-centered classroom and move to classrooms that are project-based and inquiry-driven,” Bergmann said.Educators can think of flipped learning as a reevaluation of Bloom’s Taxonomy in which the focus lies more on creating, evaluating, and analyzing.“You, as a teacher, get the attention away from yourself and away from content delivery—you leverage technology of a teacher-created video to deliver content,” Sams said.Top educator concerns about moving to flipped learning are so common that Bergmann and Sams created the Four Ts to help educators realize that a flipped classroom can become a reality.
Thinking: Flip teachers’ thinking and help them re-imagine what the classroom looks like, Bergmann said. It’s not about content dissemination—it’s about deeper thinking.” To read further please click here: http://www.eschoolnews.com/2014/08/27/flipped-learning-engagement-734/2/
“Take a smartphone, add $10 worth of plywood and Plexiglas, a bit of hardware, laser pointer lenses and LED click lights from a keychain flashlight and you have a DIY microscope worthy of use in college classes. At least, that’s the idea of an instructor at the Missouri University of Science and Technology who is adding the do-it-yourself technology in her biology lab courses.
The project is part of a larger research endeavor at the university to explore the design of instructional labs for science and engineering courses that can be delivered in a blended or online format. The goal of a research is to develop e-learning models to redesign traditional lab courses to work in a hybrid format and to create a handbook for use by instructors that explains how to apply the new models.
“We’re working with different lab courses on campus that use blended or online learning and plan to come up with an instructional model that could be reproduced anywhere,” said Manager of Educational Technology Angela Hammons.” To read further please click here:
