One of the first curricular tools I built to share—on the first day of school—was a public, student-friendly gradebook on Google Sheets. Yes, this was before Google Classroom existed!) To supplement in-person support offered during class and lunch periods, I published a simple Google site to house my lessons, assessments, and other resources. I was so green at this point in my career that I probably assumed every classroom in the 21st century operated this way.

Harnessing the Power of Google Forms for Just-in-Time Teaching

Fractus Learning

Not long after I began flipping my writing and literature classes—delivering the course content remotely mostly through outside readings and online videos, readings, and exercises and then practicing the content in the face-to-face classroom—I quickly discovered a serious drawback: my students were not likely to do the outside, online work without serious motivation. I find that JITT techniques are an easy complement to the flipped classroom, with several real advantages.

Ten years ago two Colorado chemistry teachers unleashed a brash concept on a K-12 landscape where few questioned the age-old formula of lecture, homework, assess, repeat. It became know as the flipped classroom—a modern, video-based version of a model pioneered by a handful of higher ed professors during the 1990s. Of course, the flipped movement still has its critics. The promise of more time for active learning is key to the flipped appeal, its fans say.

Breaking the Blockbuster Model

CUE

Recently, I’ve been a part of some really good conversations around trends in grading practices , parent access to the classroom curriculum , and use of UDL. Ultimately though, I think what I want out of it most of all is a chance to start a conversation around the traditional ways we’ve thought about teaching, learning, creating, and consuming content in our classrooms.

Flip Your Classroom Just in Time – A Beginner’s Guide

Fractus Learning

Too many educators seem to think that flipped classrooms merely replace the classroom lecture with an online video lecture.

Flip Your Classroom. The idea behind the flipped classroom is that students watch the equivalent of a lecture and perhaps read some informational text prior to class. When students do application activities in the classroom, you can be there to help them so they don’t get frustrated. For instance, students in a teacher education program were asked to assess what a group of children know about something, teach them a lesson on it, and assess them afterwards.
