F1-#Flipclass + Google Apps = Perfect Together

The Flipped Classroom centers on the idea that learning isn’t confined to the classroom.  Therefore, you need to utilize a system that allows students to complete assignments whenever they are ready, whether it be in the classroom, in their bedrooms or even on the school bus.  With the increase of mobile technology, Google has the perfect combination of applications that allow for learning and assessment to occur any time.  In this session, participants will learn how to set up their Google accounts to use with students, to share documents, to collaborate on documents with students, and to streamline their grading using simple tools already built into GApps.  No experience with Google Apps is required, but users are encouraged to have a Gmail account before arriving.

F2-Collaborative Flipping

Our presentation will start with a brief description of why we decided to collaborate to create a new pre-calculus class using the flip class model. We will take attendees on our journey through creating our new course. We will share our new class format which incorporates our modified version of problem based learning, higher level thinking skill projects, differentiated learning projects, discovery learning projects, and samples of student work. We will share a sample of our collaborative instructional videos, our anticipatory videos which provide opening questions that guide each unit, and short interviews with our students as they reflect on the flip class. We will discuss obstacles we have faced along with some unexpected observations. We will end with a short preview of our next collaborative project.

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.
