The Traditional Definition of a Flipped Classroom:Where videos take the place of direct instructionThis then allows students to get individual time in class to work with their teacher on key learning activitiesIt is called the flipped class because what used to be class work (the lecture) is done at home via teacher-created videos and what used to be homework (assigned problems) is now done in class. But.. It is much more than this.The Flipped Classroom is NOT:A synonym for online videos. When most people hear about the flipped class, all they think about are the videos. It is the interaction and the meaningful learning activities that occur during the face-to-face time that is most important.About replacing teachers with videos.An online course.Students working without structure.Students spending the entire class staring at a computer screen.Students working in isolation.The Flipped Classroom is:A means to increase interaction and personalized CONTACT TIME between students and teachersAn environment where students take responsibility for their own learning.A classroom where the teacher is not the sage on the stage, but the guide on the side.A blending of direct instruction with constructivist learning.A classroom where students who are absent due to illness or extra-curricular activities such as athletics or field-trips, dont get left behind.A class where content is permanently archived for review or remediation.A class where all students are engaged in their learning.A place where all students can get a personalized education.An opportunity to build stronger relationships with students.

Need Technology and Administration support and Buy-inFinancial supportA way to record lessons or podcast we use Camtasia, elmo, video cameras, webcams, Livescribe pens, projectors, computers in room, and headsets.A place to store the lessons and deliver them we use Blackboard and Cisco Show and Share video server, DVDs, portable stick drives.

Here is what you need to get started:Need to:Share the Vision with counselors, parents and the community - CommunicationPut aside time to produce the videos, develop enriched activities for the classroom and formative assessmentsIntroduce to your students how to watch a podcast and take notes Make the podcasts fun and visually appealingKeep podcasts under 10 minutes if possible

How to get started ---Video your lesson and edit using CamtasiaCan use Elmo to capture image or write over an exisitng Powerpoint. (can show pic-in-pic)OR, sit in front of a webcam or camera and record a lessonOR, make a pencast using Livescribe pensKeep it between 5 to 15 minutes in lengthRender it and upload to a Video Server to share or save to portable drives, DVDs, itunes University, etc.Make sure students know how to access itPrepare the lesson that will occur in class
