Training tomorrows teachers. Hosted by USW digital champions & Mathew Pullen.
This #ADEchat is hosted by @onesmallclip. Those who want to get started with #edtech, it's really simple! OneSmallClip is a community of educators sharing Clips enabling tweaks to practice.
Tonights chat is hosted by Greg Hughes, on Twitter known as @deepexpierence1. Last year at the BETT-show, I visit a presentation with him. Got a lot of usefull tips!
This #ADEchat is at the same time as a meeting I'm in. I wasn't able to do both at the same time. It was a shame because the topic is very great. Here is a recap of the #ADEchat with my missing answers.
The topic: all about strategies for using learning technologies and iPad.
After a Halloween-break the #ADEchat is back on track! This week with Lara Dickinson and Claire Jones. This weeks topic: Digital Leaders.
Tonights #ADEchat is hosted by @TechTeachGoals, their focus is to share ideas based upon 'Why' they are benefitical. This collaboration is founded at the Academy of 2017 and the participants are: Mr Parkinson, Ruth Smith, Claire Jones, Robbie Dunne, Alan Frame and Paul Tullock. The topic is: What's your Why, why do you do what you do? Unfortunately I was not able to join the whole #ADEchat but this topic is so interesting that I want to participate, even if it's a couple of days later! Here are my answers an lot's of great tips and advise from other participants!
Tonight, Paul Tullock, Liesbeth Heijman and I, are hosting the #adechat about being a game changer in your school. It was a crowded #adechat. Here is a recap from over 35 participants. It's a long-read but absolutely worth it!
Tonight it is about coding! Martin Coutts and Miriam Walsh are hosting this chat!
Should I do it? Should I volunteer? Am I confident enough about my English? These are a couple of thoughts that kept me busy last summer. Of course I volunteered. I was not confident at all but as Pippi Longstocking said: I have never done it so I think I can do it!
I did it! Together with the great Paul Tullock. It really was a fantastic event. We scheduled the questions we want to ask (it was my first time ever scheduling a tweet!) and also our answers. We had our hands free to welcome everybody and react om tweets and answers given by participants. Well.....that was mostly Paul's business, in the first 5 minutes my head was exploding from all the tweets and everybody I want to welcome. From that point on I focussed on 'liking' tweets and retweeting good stuff.
It wasn't possible for me to dig deeper in answers given on our questions. We had a good mentor in the person of Sari Lantto she told us what questions are good ones, and which question should be a great last one.
Hereby the questions and my answers
Q1 Why use flipped learning in the classroom?
Studens can always get back on your lesson, they can 'pause' you when they want, you can re-use your instruction.
Other answers that stick with me: It gives time, it's on students own pace, they can revisit, the ownership of students grow. Parents can join and there will be more time in class for 'doing'.
Q2 What are the benefits of using flipped learning?
When students watch my instruction in their own time, there is more time in class to give 'extra' to those who needed it.
Flipped learning isn't about videos it's about 24/7 access to learning materials. Students become experts when adding to the teachers instruction. It's more rewarding and fun then traditional teacher-led pedagogies.
Q3 What impact has flipped learning had on your students and your classroom?
There is more time to do rich learning activities. Furthermore, students are willing to work because of the fact the students recognize the effort I took to make all those materials the show a bit of respect to the work I do.
Alina shared her biggest impact was with the parents: they saw their kids learning at home and they could use iTunesU course to help.
As Ben said: students come to class with more focused questions and better understanding.
Q4 What apps do you use for creating and delivering flipped learning?
For creating I use explain everything on the iPad and on the MacBook I use Camtasia. For sharing I use YouTube and Yurls.
Q5 Do you have any examples to share?
I shared my Water cycle video made with explain everything.
Q6 What advice would you give teachers wanting to try flipped learning?
Just do it! Start small, share with others and enjoy it! Do it together and make mistakes!
Catharine Mangan has a great advice: Try it! - you will reap more then you sow! What is the worst thing that can happen - embrace change!
Great advice from Paul Tullock: Don't spend more time making resources then students do using them. It should make it easy for you and students.
Jon Neal has also great advice: share some gems with students and encourage them to dig for more.
Ben Versteegt has also great advice: Don't bite more off then you can chew. And don't be afraid to experiment: things will go wrong, no worries.
Great advice from Martin Coutts: start small, pick a topic or concept don't try and do it all at once. Build up on collection over time.
Alicia Bankhofer has another great advice: don't take it over 5 minutes.
Alan Frame has also good advice: Don't be afraid to give freedom to children, it will lead to real engagement.
Aram Schalm is trying to keep his clips under 2 minutes.
After this six questions my head was spinning! It was amazing. 40 tweeps joined our #ADEchat from at least 8 different countries. I'm looking forward to next weeks #adechat about iOS 11
