I'm heading off on leave in a few days. I was going to be lazy and just post a question, but decided that Search was worth a visit - and it was. There is a lot of interest in flipped classrooms at the moment as a way of helping students get a better grip on 'thinking' skills.
I am moving to a new school within the same organization from September and have a 'younger' and possibly more 'dynamic' management structure
We are currently in a more traditional knowledge based and didactic environment. Anyone else moving in rather than baby-steps towards a flipped environment? and what tech supports your move?
A number of staff use google apps and dropbox although I have to say the "main" delivery platform is Edmodo.
I am not asking for everybody to make every lesson flipped. We need to work with our co-teachers to introduce the ideas - the educational initiative here is about the international staff sharing pedagogy and "up-skilling" the national staff who are very knowledgeable teachers although using mainly didactic approaches (ex Soviet system).
We already use ppt, prezzi, videos, etc, but the context is what we have to work on. I am a techy and can support in a number of areas- ppt with narration rather than a real speaker for instance, posting documents etc
The question is where to focus and how to ensure student participation (suspect we have that one fairly well nailed down) and what path have people followed in their own implementations
Just a few pointers.
