Re: Flipped Classroom

Rachel introduced this concept to me because it is used more in the middle school and upper grades, but I think it is something that 4th and 5th graders would enjoy. Rachel knows more about it, however she says her entire grade level is using the flipped classroom and they make the videos themselves via brainshark. The ones that are posted on her classroom website are less than 3 minutes each and she has a handout or worksheets students are required to complete while watching the videos, it teaches them note taking techniques and gets them in the habit of writing and watching simultaneously. Here is a link that explains the flipped classroom more throughly also found on Rachel's classroom website:

          I assign the video in advance, if I can't, then I book a lab so that everyone can get it done on time. I make sure that the videos are cell phone friendly, YouTube, etc. because a lot of my parents... more

        Wow, that's a very informative video and page. This is such an interesting idea. I can only imagine how much this would have worked for my dreaded high school math classes. What a great topic for... more

          I think it would help in a lot of classrooms as well. I know that I have used Youtube videos a ton to learn how to knit, etc. so I thought why not in my room? Just to clarify what Jennie said, not... more

            I wondered about students that didn't have access to computers at home. I love this idea! It reminds me of the lecture models that many of us are watching in grad school. When done well, they feel... more
