Does anyone know of someone who uses flipped classroom and vodcasting for a language course? This is all new to me and I'm trying to get started and connected to other language teachers that may already be using the flipped classroom.
One of the Italian teachers in my school is interested in trying a blended model next year. Eventually I will get her to join the ning and then you can connect with her.
Once you have your video made, you should load it on youtube or vimeo. When you view the video, you have the option to share, and there you can choose the URL link or the code to embed. You cppy the embed code (it is in HTML). Then I have a website for my class (using google site). So I create a new page, and I access the HTML view of that page. There I paste the embed code.
I do the samething with the google form. Once I have ceated my form, I can embed it on my webpage, just below the video.
Does that help?
I would love to hear and see how you have flipped your classroom. Do you do your webcasts in French or English? What were the first steps you did? I don't know where and how to begin.
I chose a unit in the textbook that I needed to teach. It was about the Futur simple and near futur.
I created two "instructional pages" on my class website where I posted some videos with some google forms. I used some videos from the textbook, but I also made a couple on my own using ExplainEverthing on an iPad (it is like using a whiteboard to explain things) and also Jing on my MacBook ( I prepared a powerpoint and I recorded myself speaking over the powerpoint presentation). All the videos that I do, I speak in French. I figure my students can watch over and over so it is a good listening comprehension practice. I have intermediate level students who have 1 or 2 years of French.
Then for two weeks, I told my students we were flipping he classroom. They were very excited!. A homework, they had to go the website pages I had created and watch the videos and answer the comprehension questions on the google form (I could also have given them a worksheet to fill out). The ideas was that I could tell who had not watched the videos. I had only a couple students who didn't watch.
Then when they came to class, we went straight in doing practices exercises and group-based application. I just had more time to do what normally I don't have time too.
