The Importance of eBooks in a Flipped Classroom

Kitaboo on EdTech

Flipping the classroom has become a hot topic in educational circles in recent times. The idea is that students first learn course content online, usually at home, and the time in the classroom is devoted to what used to be traditionally homework, with the teacher’s assistance. Many articles have been written on how the idea of a Flipped Classroom has gained currency with the advent of eBooks and digital learning content.

The Must-Have Tools in My Flipped Classroom

Edsurge

When I first began flipping my math class in 2010, the ability to screencast, upload video to the web and have students watch lectures at their own pace was exciting and innovative. Though it was a step in the right direction toward a more personalized and student-centered classroom, a couple of tech tools that have emerged during the past few years have truly changed my thinking about what is possible for the flipped classroom.

Bending the rules of flipped classrooms

Neo LMS

Flipped classrooms are the bread and butter of e-learning and have defined the education landscape in the past few years or so. But sometimes we still feel there is that sorely-lacking element which could increase student engagement practices or even augment different learning techniques to enhance the learning experience. Educators have played with the flipped classroom and applied a lot of techniques and approaches to increase student engagement and interaction.

Paper: Flipped Classroom Works When Students Cooperate

K-12 Schools - Education News

The UK National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER) has revealed the benefits and challenges of flipped classroom learning for mathematics. Through a small study, the researchers found that the approach helped students take responsibility for their learning while teachers reported positive and faster learning outcomes compared to the implementation of a traditional learning model. I think it is fantastic that they (students) come in at a better starting point.”.

Exploring 4 types of Flipped Learning

Neo LMS

Flipped Learning has emerged as the “easy button” to move classes, schools, and districts from passive to active learning. Flipped Learning is not just another teaching strategy, but rather, the meta-strategy that supports all others. Flipped Learning is often thought of as static and fraught with misconceptions. Many people believe that Flipped Learning is just that thing with the videos. Though many flipped educators use video, it is not inherently about the videos.

4 Ways Your LMS Can Increase Student Engagement

It’s becoming increasingly harder to keep students’ attention. Search any educational website or blog (including this one) and you’ll find a wealth of articles and suggestions on how to stimulate student engagement and how to get students to become active participants in their learning.

The Ultimate Checklist Before You Flip Your Classroom by @JusteSem

TeacherCast

Decide on your flipped lessons’ learning objectives. Are you flipping to help the struggling students or to deepen the in-class learning? Decide how you will deliver your flipped lessons. Do you have a classroom blog where you’d like to share the videos? Ensure all students have Internet access at home. The flipped classroom approach will only work if all of your students can access the content online.

Two reasons why teachers don’t automate their work

The Christensen Institute

Teachers today stand to benefit from using technology to substitute for some of their work. If you’re a teacher, just consider how nice it would be to have more time for collaborating with colleagues, differentiating your instruction, planning engaging projects, building relationships with students, or bringing field and industry experts into your classroom. My last blog post doubled down on the merits of using technology to automate some teaching tasks.

Over winter break in 2015, I found myself scouring the internet for career alternatives that would take me out of the classroom. I was in my fifth year of teaching at Forest Ridge, an independent all-girls school serving students in grades 5-12 in Bellevue, Wash., and I was feeling isolated in a room with students who didn’t seem to want to engage with my class, despite all my efforts to bring enthusiasm and passion to my work.

Why Taking Risks in the Classroom Pays off for Students—and Teachers

It was my first experiment flipping our classroom. As the groans from my students got louder, I knew something wasn’t right. Doe Zantamata Hands immediately went up and my students began to get defensive. I’ve taught in a few districts with unique missions and priorities, but one thing that has remained constant is the fact that to make sure that learning remains engaging and relevant for the modern learner, risk-taking in the classroom is a necessity.

An overview of active Learning.

Linways Technologies

Why does it work so well and how to implement active learning in your classrooms. Active learning is an approach in which students are engaged in the learning process. In teaching-learning, there is a lot of importance in keeping the students involved and engaged in the session. The knowledge can be embedded to a greater depth into the brain of students when they actively participate in a class. Open-ended discussions always keep students engaged.

Reaching the Quiet Kids in Class

As a student, my mindset was that everything needed to be perfect; anything less was unacceptable. As he lectured, he would randomly pick names from the stack to call on students. I understand the importance of engaging every student and making sure each child is actively listening. But what these methods can do, especially for a student like me, is cause this constant feeling of being on edge. Technology has helped me answer those questions.

How Academic Publishers Can Push the Boundaries of Digital Learning

Edsurge

The rising cost of printed textbooks—as well as tuition and university life—have made them unaffordable for many students. As a result, more students are turning to used books, rentals, shared copies, illegal downloads, and other online sources. In order to succeed in a rapidly changing market, educators, students, and publishers need to evolve. Going digital offers students other benefits, including: Portability— Numerous courses or books can be stored on a single device.

Less Work, Deeper Learning

The Principal of Change

As many people discuss the merits of homework for students (not a fan, never been a fan), I think about the late hours that many teachers spend working at schools. There are lots of things that teachers have to do that go above and beyond what the general public sees, but going back to John’s question, “What am I doing for students that they could be doing for themselves?”. If you want to see how effective an educator is, don’t watch the educator, view their students.

Should the teacher be a guide on the side rather than being a sage on the stage

Linways Technologies

Since the past century or so, we have come a long way to identify new teaching methods and better understanding of the way students learn in the classrooms. Many experts believe that lecturing is not a complete solution and we should place student at the centre to devise a better plan for education. Sage on the stage essentially points to the teacher sharing relevant information with minimal input from the part of students. Student engagement is high in this approach.

Removing the Limitations in a Digital Environment

I have had a lot of noneducators talk to me about technology in the classroom. Good teaching and sound student-directed learning is not, and should not be, device dependent. In addition to debating the best type of technology, I often hear that blended learning can only happen in a 1:1 environment. If you only had six laptops in your classroom, how would you best utilize them? I was in her classroom the first time that she pulled laptops into her instruction.

For example, when a new technology is introduced on the market it is usually presented to the public through a demonstration of its functions and usability.
