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.

Why Teaching Never Leaves You – World Teachers’ Day

Why Teaching Never Leaves You – World Teachers’ Day
Wednesday October 5 marks World Teacher’s Day, a very special occasion celebrated in more than 100 countries worldwide. Having come to ClickView from teaching in regional Victoria I can attest to what an extraordinary job teaching is and I can also vouch for the extraordinary work that teachers do every day. Reflecting on my own time teaching I find myself thinking that the most rewarding parts of being in the classroom weren’t when those overly ambitious lesson plans actually worked (a rare occurrence), or when students did particularly well on an assessment or project, rewarding though…

Teach about ANZAC Day with these Videos on ClickView
On the 25th of April the stirring sound of the Last Post will sound out across Australia and New Zealand as we remember the men and women who have served their country in conflicts since 1901. ANZAC day is a time for sombre commemoration of the sacrifices of both servicemen and women and anybody touched by the experience of war. It is also a day for reflection and consideration about what war means for a nation and a society, the myths and legends we create and whether these are the proper way to commemorate the experience…

Mark International Women’s Day with ClickView

Mark International Women’s Day with ClickView
Tuesday 8 March marks International Women’s Day. This year the Day’s theme is #PledgeForParity, while women continue to contribute significantly to cultural, economic, social and political achievements around the world there is still much progress to be made in reaching gender parity. In fact, in 2015 the World Economic Forum made the sobering projection that at its current rate of change gender parity would not be achieved until 2133. From the pivotal women of the Middle Ages to the rise of contemporary feminism we here at ClickView have curated videos from the ClickView Exchange to…
