Community,I am looking to start a list of really high quality resources for teachers that go beyond videos. I am thinking applets, simulations, educational games, interactive assessments.One example…Continue

"Hi HT, Glad to find a Singapore Flipper here, then again it's been awhile. Congrats to your successful 'flip' & I believed you should do fine flipping an entire module :)
As for motivating students to watch video lectures,…"
"Hi everyone. I am from Singapore and I teach mathematics to polytechnic students (pre-university). I flipped one topic on differentiation and response was good. Now, we are trying to flip an entire module. Any suggestions on how to motivate students…"
"In my experience, Camtasia does everything with video that Snagit does, but Camtasia allows you to do post production and editing. If I think I might edit, I use Camtasia. If not, then I just use Snagit for quick videos, as it's literally,…"
I don't know of any particular research dealing with video length yet. I know, from experience, and from others doing the same thing, that 10 minutes is the absolute max in most cases. I look at it in a couple of ways:
1) We know…"
"Is anyone familiar with research supporting an optimum length for podcasts? I seem to remember hearing that each podcast should be no more than 10 minutes, but I cannot find the research to support that. Thank you!
"Hello AP Flippers,
I'm a current doctoral student at RMU looking for some classrooms to include in my dissertation study. I have a local high school AP Pschology course that is flipping using APEX Learning. I need many more classrooms for…"
I just wanted to chime in and say how great it is that folks have offered to help. Hang in there Heather. The flip can be difficult and is different for all populations of students. Hopefully you have support from your admin. I teach…"
"Does anyone know how to integrate different levels of questions in moodle or other system so that the students can get a variety of questions on their quizzes/tests? I like to ask a certain number of "easy", "medium", and…"
"When I started flipping several years ago, I wasn't sure about the Mastery model for MS. Now, 3 years in, my teaching partner and I are doing a flipped gamification classroom and it is completely mastery. I love it!! Part of…"
I just joined the Teacher Vodcasting and Flipped Classroom Network and I am SUPER excited to have found you all (BTW, it was via the NPR article). I skimmed through your research proposal for a study on the effectiveness of the reversed classroom and was wondering whether you had published the results yet? I am very keen on finding studies that explore effectiveness on this approach.
As an aside, I am currently working as a product development manager working on a brand new online supplemental learning tool called Apperson Prep where we have created 77 learning videos (using Camtasia) for Algebra 1 (as well as animated videos) where each video has a complimentary set of high quality practice questions that provide students immediate feedback when they choose distractors and also allow them to earn points for correctly answering questions. We actually developed this application to help teachers have a progress monitoring tool that also provides instruction and I would be VERY interested in getting your feedback on our videos and how we can make our program a model for developing "flipping tools" for teachers who are overwhelmed by the idea of creating their own videos.
I would relish the opportunity to chat with you about what you're doing, your research and what you think about what we're doing. Let me know if you're game :-)
I work for a State Department of CareerTech and oversee Math and Science teachers. I am a career HS Science teacher. I am always looking for new innovative ways to improve classroom management, curriculum, teaching and learning. I hope someday to be back in the classroom teaching. It's the best job ever.
I teach chemistry and computer science. I will be using Jon and Aaron's vodcasts next year as part of my program. I will not be doing it in CS since I lecture so little anyhow in that class. This will be the first year I will be doing this, and plan on jumping in with both feet. Mastery learning and all - There is another teacher who is on the band wagon with me, and the two of us will be redesigning all our classes this summer. How about you? Are you finding this to be a success? Any pitfalls to watch out for?
I will be trying the flipped classroom for the first time this year - very excited about the idea. We are switching from a traditional schedule to a block schedule, and my predominant teaching style (lecture) will not work. So, this sounds like a tremendous idea. I also like the idea of mastery - we have too darn much extra credit in our system. Also, really like the idea of working with the students more one on one. That is the part of my job I enjoy the most. The thing I have to work on now is planning my schedule so I can give the kids targets for each week (which turns into 4 1/2 weeks, 9 weeks, semester, etc.)
Thanks for the welcome Jerry - how do you like the vodcasting? It appears you have been doing it for a while.
Thanks for says "Hi". I am working out the details of flipping our classes. I am looking forward to getting more in info from the site to help make our process as efficient as possible. Thanks for the info.
We're not currently using vodcasting or the flipped classroom. We will continue to explore blending learning but the flipped classroom is the first framework that I've heard about where online learning makes 'bigger picture' sense in mainstream schools like mine. With the bigger picture in place, the change to pedagogy becomes easier to implement and just makes good sense.
Heard about you from another delegate at morning tea at the Technology in K-12 Education National Congress held in Sydney last week. The last Keynote speaker was Alan November - he spoke about the concept in more detail.
Thank you for the welcome. I worked with Aaron Sams 4 years ago and found that he had lots of fun with his students, so this must be great. I am a Biology teacher and find that this technology may allow me to spend more time focusing on the sudents that really need help and are willing to try. I am not currently using this technolgy but I have a summer to build it up.
