72-Flipped learning in the diverse classroom

Students different ways of learning is a great challenge for teachers in our schools. Students enter the school system with very differing abilities, prerequisites and experiences. The last couple of years the results I Sweden concerning language acquisition at large and, more specifically, literacy has decreased. The use of ICT in society is increasing rapidly. Schools are having difficulties coping with this challenge. It is of great importance that the schools meet its students on their arena, i e use the new technology as possible ways to enhance and redefine learning in comparison to more traditional teaching methods.
In Sweden, flipped learning is still a fairly new phenomenon. In the municipality of Halmstad there are a few teachers that have seen the advantages of the Flipped Classroom. We would like to share how flipped learning could be an answer to reaching our diverse group of students.

56-Offering Students Choice in a Flipped Classroom

In this workshop, teachers will connect the concept of multiple intelligences to offering students choice in learning in the classroom. When students are given flipped lessons for homework, time is made available for students to work on projects of their choice in order to master content, concepts, and skills according to the teacher’s design and plan. Teachers will learn ways to create lessons for homework; to post lessons on a website and to assign it for homework, making time available to fully engage students in their classrooms using project based learning. Teachers will design a choice board for students in which learning activities are connected to multiple learning styles.

63-GEORGE of the 'FLIPPED' Jungle

A Flipped Classroom is a powerful tool for improving learning and a major paradigm shift for teachers, students, and parents. While exploring the beauty of this learning jungle, many Allen High School teachers faced challenges and struggles and are working to turn them into successes. During our expedition we will shed some light on the dark corners of video assessment, student engagement and accountability, teacher transitions, and parent communication. Video concerns include whether and how to assess learning expectations. Parents need complete information on this teaching change, as well as re-education regarding the meaning of the word “teach”. A main pitfall for the teacher is a tendency to “re-lecture” and “re-teach” video content. This dishonors the work of those who watched the videos and cripples the flipped method because there is less time available for mentored/guided practice. Finally, we will explore approaches for corralling the creative chaos of the classroom.

75-Better Together: The Collaborative Flip

We all know isolation is not good, but often, we are the only ones in our school flipping our classes. This session is about how you can make room for collaboration in your practice, even when you don’t have a flipped learning colleague on site. Finding a collaborative partner is just the beginning. Building a collaborative partnership that can support, encourage, question, and help you is game-changing - for teachers AND students. Collaboration isn’t something we do to just reduce our workload; it transforms the way we communicate, the way we learn, and the way we teach. This workshop will cover the reasons why you should embark on a collaborative partnership, the practicalities of how to make it work, and how to help your students become more collaborative and reflective.

F4-Flipping Writing Instruction

Having time to sit and have a meaningful conversations with your students about their writing and the writing process is the best way to get to know your students as writers. Learn about a way to leverage technology to make your students better and more authentic writers.

 

 

According to the metadata on research on improving student writing, the biggest gains come from one on one student writing conferences. However, with class sizes growing and budgets shrinking, how can a teacher still meet with every student to improve writing? By utilizing various pieces of technology and using a blended classroom model, a teacher can really learn to use their class time in the most efficient and productive way possible.

65-Flipped: Engaging Students

Interaction in flipped classrooms must be meaningful, purposeful, and vibrant. This session on engagement and interaction covers three elements vital to creating engaging and interactive online courses: sample rubrics defining expectations, immediate and personal feedback comments, and lively discussion questions. Templates, rubrics, and samples are offered for participants to personalize in their own courses. Participants will be actively involved in learning and have opportunities to practice the tools, techniques, and strategies presented. Opportunities for questions and exchanges of information, best practices, and tools will be integrated into the session. Participants leave with their own “best practices” toolbox.

At the end of this session, participants will
• Demonstrate the ability to engage learners in the online environment
• Make use of effective online questioning techniques
• Formulate quality feedback to learners
• Create a positive presence in the online course
• Design online relationships between and with learners

74-Use This Flipping Technology

In this interactive presentation, we’ll share a variety of technology tools that we use in flipclass to engage students. We’ll give project and product examples that participants can use in their flipclasses. We’ll encourage participants to take what we show and use it to expand what they already do, or to create something new. Based on participant feedback via polling technology, topics may include content curation (e.g. symbaloo),expanding the reach of the classroom (e.g .todaysmeet), or student / teacher publishing (e.g. yudu). At the end of the presentation, we’ll share our popular Techsplosion! of useful tech tools that defy categorization. Participants are encouraged to use their web-enabled devices during this session to explore the tools and share ideas in the backchannel.

98-Flipping and Learning by Doing
In order to facilitate the teaching of speaking and listening skills, teachers need to continually find engaging and interactive methods to trigger students’ interest and motivation. Through the use of videos, teachers are able to integrate and customize their tasks based on students’ needs and learning styles.

Video based instruction, hosted on Wordpress, allows classrooms to go organic and ‘live’ with a click of a button. After input from the blog videos, students are assigned to create their own digital stories based on communication themes introduced to them. These in return are shared by them on a common blog platform as contributors to a wider range of audience.
