What is happening in educational world today
What does flip classroom mean
How do we get there?

Why are we teachersLets remember through the


true story by Mrs. Thompson and Teddy

Who are our students?


The Baby Boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) growing up in a time of economic
expansion and prosperity, major social movements, and national optimism.
Core values include optimism, team orientation, personal gratification, health and
wellness,
personal growth, work, and involvement.
Generation X (born between 1965-1977) witnessed corporate layoffs and corruption,
inflation, the energy crisis, and nuclear proliferation.
Core values include diversity, thinking globally, balance, techno-literacy, fun,
informality, self-reliance ,and pragmatism.
Generation Y (born 1977 through 2000) grew up being defined by 9/11, bombings in
Oklahoma City and school shootings. They were raised in a child focused environment.
Core values include optimism, civic duty, confidence, achievement, sociability,
morality, street smarts, and diversity.
Generation Z (Millennials) (born early 1990s to present) grew up with the internet, cell
phones, I-Pads and I-Pods. They get information fast and expect it quickly. They often are
seen as inpatient and are technically savvy.
Core values are a sense of social justice, philanthropy and maturity that comes with
growing up in an economically depressed time.

It Takes Work!

Road To

Flipped Classroom is not a fix but one of many methods


that are used to encourage an active learning environment .
To reach success, we must be able to move outside of our comfort zone

How Do We Begin the ChangeOne Step at a Time!!

Q. In blunter terms, some have asked what makes successful


business peopleeven if they are successful at businessqualified to
weigh in on the operation of universities?

Well, obviously anything that has to do with the


universities is going to be figured out by people
who've worked in universities, and it's going to be
piloted in universities. I don't think there's any
business people who are just walking out of their
office door and walking over to a university and
saying, Hey, reorganize your university this way.
I've never heard of that. What we do is we fund
universities who are on the cutting edge. And so
it's people from universities who apply and say,
Hey, I want to do this next-generation learning.
Because you need the people doing the neat
content, and the people who actually sit with the

Basic Principle of Flipped Classrooms


What is traditionally done in the class is now done at
home
and what is done at home can be done in the
classroom
But it really isnt that simple

method is well thought out before using


uses both summative and formative assessment

Its Not a Magic


Bullet

While Im glad many educators seem
to be jumping onboard with the model,
my concerns are that some teachers
may simply transfer their lectures to
video and then have their students
write papers or fill out worksheets
during class. To me, that is bad
pedagogy. However, if significant
learning opportunities are capitalized
on during class time, this could truly
change learning and solve the problem,
at least temporarily, of engaging

to help you on this journey
Find out what is the best way to access your students
what access to they have at home, do some need to
have the information burned on a disc, do all have the

Advantages: Using technology


to give students control of their
interactions which has a
positive effect on student
learning

Problems:
We dont know what to do with the extra time
if we do not lecture in the class.
How we teach changes considerably
Time is needed to develop the videos and
discussions as well as activities that will be
done in the classroom
To do what you want with the time in
classroom is not enough to help teachers
know what to do!
More on this in future
