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.

31-Flip or Flop: Moodle and the Mastery Classroom
The biggest obstacle to developing and managing a mastery-based classroom is the management of data. Moodle, a learning management system, has a variety of tools that can effectively facilitate the administration, distribution, and management of a mastery learning model. The presentation will focus on sharing the successes and failures of Moodle in implementing mastery learning in a high school chemistry course. Additionally, resources will be shared as to the benefit of developing a mastery learning module for students and how it has philosophically changed the purpose of teaching my high school chemistry courses.

46-Puttin' the Parts Together

Confused about how to incorporate the "Flip" in the age of Standards Based Grades while pushing towards Asynchronous Mastery Learning? How about making this all work with high-stakes testing or new standards in the elementary level? Sound too imposing? Come hear some ways it all of these seemly disparate ideas can come together and flourish.

I have taught upper elementary for 22 years, and I have employed the Flipped Class paradigm for the last two across the curriculum. In this session, I will share ideas strategies and resources that have worked well for me as well as encourage the asking of questions about how to integrate all of these parts into a cohesive whole (while retaining your sanity).5

51-I Want to Flip... Now What?
This presentation will discuss things that need to be considered before moving forward with a flipped classroom. Moving to a flipped classroom is going to be a new experience for your students, and whenever people encounter something new and different, there might be pushback. Here we will talk about some potential issues that you may face when you decide to flip your classroom. Moving to a flipped classroom will also require you to rethink your learning space. You no longer will need to use the traditional row model to set up your class… what else can you change? How are you going to set up your flipped class? Is it still going to be teacher centered or are you doing this to move to a more student centered approach? Where do you want your flipped class to go? The flip is only the first step.

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.

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.

68-Maintaining Rigor in an Advanced Flipped Classroom

A driving motto in my course is “embrace your learning” and a flipped classroom beautifully facilitates this goal. My students overwhelmingly voted in favor of the flipped approach. I believe efficiency of learning is the biggest win for an advanced course so will discuss the balance of time between videos and class work. Main areas of learning and assessment along with rationale behind the breakdown of the percentage of the final grade will be included. Students use objectives to help guide their learning. Daily work is either self-assessed or assessed using an online “homework” site, providing immediate feedback that maximizes our time together in class. Students are encouraged to redo quizzes for up to an 80. The “second chance” approach encourages students to push through difficult topics and attempt to master the material. I have also developed a method for test corrections that provides a valuable re-learning (and re-teaching) opportunity.

F3-7 Ways to Flip, 6 Ways to Blend

Flipped Classroom is a “rotation” type of Blended Classroom. There are a variety of ways to use flipped classroom in combination with with other pedagogical approaches, such as project based learning, universal design for learning, or Challenge Based Learning. All flipped classrooms are types of blended classrooms, but not all blended classrooms are flipped classrooms. What are some of the ways a teacher can flip a classroom? What are some other ways to use blended learning in a classroom or a school that can be used to replace flipped classrooms or to compliment flipped classrooms? This session will explore a variety of flipped classroom styles and use a single classroom example to illustrate the variety of possibilities for blended learning beyond flipped classroom.

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.

81-First Time Flipping - How I Flipped and Results I Observed, P.S. I'll never go back!
In early October, 2012, I flipped my Dual Credit College Algebra classrooms. After flipping, I observed higher engagement of my students and at the end of the semester a 3.5% jump in the class averages of my students compared to last year.

In this session I will discuss what I did to make this shift successful. Key items discussed are:
• Making your mind over to flip your classroom – letting go
• Administration support – Failure is an option
• Use of Blackboard to support the flipped classroom
• Subject portfolios – Keeping students on task
• Lecture videos, Powerpoints and the textbook – Which to use?
• WeBWork –how I use this mathematics homework system
• Flipped classroom and the support of CCSS
• Results of an observational statistical study of the jump in achievement from last year

If you are on the fence of flipping your class, come listen, I may be able to convince you.

71-Inspiring AWESOME in every educator through personalized PD

In the fall of 2012, Byron Public Schools (BPS), a small district of approximately 1850 students, incorporated its own variation of the flipped professional development coaching model to support the the technology integration needs of every Pk-12 educator. The technology tsunami was fastly approaching BPS! Online learning, Google Apps, iPads, Web2.0, BYOD had already made its way into the district, changing many of our classroom’s teaching and learning strategies. While we were fortunate to have “Pockets of Wow” (Doug Johnson) educators, the technology skills gap between the early innovators and late adopters was increasing at a rather fast pace. Traditional “sit and get” PD was not conducive to the amount of change technology had on teaching and learning. Technology PD could no longer be supported by 1 or 2 people. We needed to do something, it needed to impact every educator, and we needed to do it now.

The Byron digital learning network was formed and 7 new teacher leaders positions, called digital learning coaches (DLCs), were created. The district worked with the DLCs to develop a Flipped PD model that would support digital pedagogy and classroom innovation for ALL PK-12 teachers. This session will share key components of the plan as well as the triumphs (BIG GAINS) and tribulations of the district’s Flipped PD journey.

With the increased availability of iPads, flipping your classroom is becoming more manageable and accessible for teachers. But once you have an iPad, how do you start? What are the best apps to use, and what challenges might you face? Two veteran teachers will discuss some of the apps used during their first year in a fully flipped course. Doceri and ExplainEverything will be demonstrated with other apps mentioned, as well. Pros & cons of these apps will be discussed while fielding participant questions. Attendees will have the chance to create their own content on their personal iPads. It is suggested that you bring a laptop and an iPad pre-loaded with the aforementioned apps in addition to an Evernote or Dropbox app that already contains potential presentation materials (pdf files, powerpoints, etc.) for the purposes of importing in your practice presentations.

82-Flipping for Self-Paced Differentiation in a Mixed-Ability Classroom
Our middle school classes are all inclusive; there’s no tracking that occurs. The result is a class that can move too slow for some and too fast for others. Therefore, we developed our own method of flipping to address this issue. This technique works best with a classroom that has access to computers or mobile devices, however it’s also possible without technology. We didn’t do it every day, we started small, and not all of our students have access to the internet at home, yet there were clear benefits for both students and the teacher. We’ll discuss how we flip and give examples from our class, as well as other subjects from our building that are doing similar work. We’ll show how resources from our regular lesson planning sessions allowed us to better meet the needs of all students and facilitate self-paced classroom activities for effective individual and small group learning.

F7-No Flipping Homework

My presentation will be fun and interactive. I will take a light-hearted approach to this touchy topic. We will look at the research that shows both the pros and cons of homework. We will discuss and give examples of practical ways homework can be eliminated or reduced from any classroom at any level.

67-I Want You to Want Me!

Why don’t my kids love my videos? Why don’t my kids even watch my videos? Why am I even still doing this!? If these questions plague your planning periods, come to “I Want You to Want Me!”. This session will show you 6 powerful ways to make your videos engaging and something that your students will even look forward to. In the session, I will go in depth to explain the importance of not being a faceless voice, having and maintaining high energy throughout the video, and proper video length. I will also go in depth in discussing why it is important to utilize your technology, why your kids crave consistency, and how powerful it is to provide an outline for your students to follow along with. Lastly, I will be peppering my presentation with technology tips that will give teachers ideas of how they can integrate more technology.

84-Implementing a Flipped-Mastery Learning Environment: Plan, Do, Study, Act

Despite engaging in extensive professional development prior to implementation of the flipped-mastery instructional model in my Chemistry – I classes, my journey was filled with mistakes and frustrations. In this presentation, I will first describe the steps I took prior to full implementation of the flipped-mastery learning model in my Chemistry - I classes. Second, I will describe the problems I experienced along the way that pointed to changes that still needed to be made for the flipped-mastery learning model to be successful with all of my first year chemistry students. Third, I will describe what I plan to do differently as I continue using the flipped-mastery learning model with my Chemistry – I classes next year. Finally, I will share success stories from students that learned how to take ownership for their learning in my version of a flipped-mastery learning environment.
