A few days ago I wrote about my experiences with the flipped classroom – the good and the bad. Following this post pedagoo.com asked me to cross-post the article on their site and I have had loads of emails and tweets from people that would like to flip their classroom but don’t know where to start.
Here is a short (~15 minute) video that I have made that will take you from nothing to having a blog with your first flipped task containing text for your student to read, a document for them to download, a video for them to watch from youtube and a quiz to check their progress.
Here are links that I mention in the screen-cast:
- resourcd.com – teacher resource sharing site
- resourcdblogs.com – where it all takes place
- wordpress.com / blogger.com / edublogs.com – other sites you can set up a blog
If you are considering flipped learning or just giving your students a different type of homework once in a while then this could be an excellent opportunity to experiment.
I could have spent hours talking about wordpress and all the ins-and-outs of it – so it might feel a little rushed. The best thing you can do it set yourself up a blog and spend an hour experimenting and seeing what you can achieve. Flipping great!*
Let me know how you get on
