Flipping Tradition for Our Technology Era – EduTECH 2017 Review

Flipping Tradition for Our Technology Era – EduTECH 2017 Review
"What is the most valuable use of your face-to-face time with your students?"​- Jon Bergmann Disclosure: My attendance at EduTECH 2017 was through a media pass provided by the organisers. In 2014, whilst on my final professional experience placement as part of my initial teacher education, my supervising teacher was exploring flipped learning. We had a chat about his understanding of what it was, how it worked, and how he was modifying things to suit his class. That particular class was a combined Year Five and Six class and he was using what I now…

The Flipped Classroom: Common Mistakes (video)

The Flipped Classroom: Common Mistakes (video)
When it comes to reflecting on my teaching practice, I am my own biggest critic. The importance of critical reflection and effective assessment and feedback for both students and teachers has been well documented. While there are many ways to deliver feedback, the compliment sandwich being a popular one, I like mine straight up. That’s why I found Jon Bergmann’s keynote at FlipCon Adelaide 2016 on the crucial mistakes people make in flipping the classroom particularly insightful. Bergmann's keynote revolved around twelve major mistakes people make when flipping the classroom - from making videos too long,…

Effectively Scaling the Flipped Classroom and Accurately Measuring Student Perceptions

Effectively Scaling the Flipped Classroom and Accurately Measuring Student Perceptions
At Parramatta Marist High School, we have undertaken a significant program of pedagogy change over the past decade. While the focus for our junior students has predominantly been Project Based Learning (PBL), we have moved towards models of Problem Based Learning (PrBL) and Flipped Learning for our senior students. In 2013, we undertook a whole-school shift to Flipped Learning for our Year 12 HSC students. Every lesson in every subject throughout the HSC is flipped. This was a significant undertaking and one that taught us numerous lessons as we refined our practice. (more…)

Participate in Cutting Edge Flipped Learning Research (Survey)

Participate in Cutting Edge Flipped Learning Research (Survey)
There are many well documented benefits of flipped learning. Working first-hand with teachers around Australia has enabled me to see and hear how these benefits are being realised. I also find that teachers and students report numerous other benefits purely from the production of video lesson content itself. For a teacher, it causes them to reflect on their teaching methodology. It also de-privatises their practise to colleagues and parents. For students, it gives them greater access to their teacher anywhere and anytime. At the same time, some teachers who use the flipped learning approach, do…

Presentations from Australia’s First Flipped Education Leaders’ Roundtable

Presentations from Australia’s First Flipped Education Leaders’ Roundtable
A few weeks ago I wrote about ClickView's Flipped Education Leaders’ Roundtable. This event was designed to bring together some of the most innovative and prominent educators from across Australia and New Zealand to share learning and expertise around flipped education, the method of freeing up face-to-face teaching time by delivering direct instruction prior to class most usually via video. It was an intense day of presentations and discussion that yielded some really valuable insights for how the practice of flipping the classroom can be honed and channelled to really bolster meaningful educational outcomes for students. Below…

Making Flipped Classroom Lessons Is Easier Than It Looks

Making Flipped Classroom Lessons Is Easier Than It Looks
My name is Joel Speranza, and I’m a maths, digital technology and accounting teacher. I’ve been producing video content, including flipped classroom lessons, for use in my classroom for 3 years now. In that time I’ve made approximately 1,000 videos. This means I’ve made about 1 video a day since I started. I know, that sounds like a lot doesn’t it? Don’t worry, it’s really not as difficult as you imagine. I used to be terrified of making videos. I had no idea how to do it, I was terrified of having my face and…

Four Ways to Flip the Primary Classroom

Four Ways to Flip the Primary Classroom
Flipped Teaching in the Primary School is gaining traction every day. As the classroom becomes increasingly crowded with ever expanding curriculum and national testing, teachers are looking for ways to teach efficiently while maintaining a focus on best practice pedagogy. Flipped Teaching allows me to regain precious time from delivering content and focus on active learning within the classroom. I have been flipping my classroom for four years now, with great success.

ClickView Flipped Channels: A Dedicated Space for Educators and Students
As strong advocates for video’s place in the classroom, we are excited by the rise in flipped teaching amongst a passionate and growing community of educators across Australia, and indeed worldwide. In the last few weeks this excitement has been boosted by two conferences held across the country, FlipCon Adelaide and FlipCon Gold Coast, solely dedicated to flipped education. The flipped classroom is one of the most exciting frontiers in education today. But why is this? (more…)

How Flipped Learning fits into Four Dimensional Education Framework of Educational Goals (Infographic)

How Flipped Learning fits into Four Dimensional Education Framework of Educational Goals (Infographic)
Traditionally flipped learning involves students interacting with new knowledge in their individual learning space so that the group learning space can be an interactive and dynamic environment to practice and deepen knowledge1. In a world where the value of knowledge is rapidly depreciating, there are calls to move away from knowledge-based curriculum and to consider not the “how” of education but the “what” of education.
