View Course Description

Turn your classroom upside down and find more time for teaching. In this course, educator Aaron Quigley demonstrates how to "flip" your K–12 or college classroom by initiating learning online before class begins. This new approach allows teachers to reinforce and delve more deeply into content in person, while sending students home with new material. In this presentation, Aaron shows how and why flipped classrooms work, addresses the possible drawbacks (like what to do when students don't have technology at home), and provides tips for implementing a flipped classroom at your school.

Education + Elearning


(MUSIC) Okay, so let's go and get started. hi, I'm Aaron Quigley and welcome to the presentation on the Flipped Classroom. before we get started with actual content, I'd like to take a second and review the technology I'll be using in today's presentation. Over my left hand shoulder, I have some slides that are going to be Keynote. To control this Keynote presentation, I'm using the Keynote app on my iPad. This is a great tip for teachers because it frees us up to move around the classroom, we're not tied to our computer, and we can use some proximate control of our students.

Now, we're all here today because we have a common goal, and that goal is to allow our students to master content. We also have a common adversary, and that's time. Most of us would love to have more time in the classroom, more time doing group projects, more time doing lab, lab activities. More time doing the extension activities that really allow our students to move from hearing content to mastering content. Well across the nation there's a variety of Educators who have taken this challenge upon themselves. What they've done is they've learned to move the introduction of content outside of the classroom walls.

They're then freed up to have 100% of class time dedicated to those extension activities. They're no longer focusing on giving the content to their students, but walking their students through the process of content mastery. This is known as flipping the classroom. If you can successfully flip your classroom, then you have the ability to meet with students one on one more often, and at a higher rate. You have the ability to have more group projects, more problem based learning, more labs. Now for most of us, inside the classroom, this is our typical structure.

Students come to class and we have an introduction to new content. Students sit there and they listen to us present our lecture, our Powerpoint presentation. And at the end of that, we as Educators recognize they didn't fully get it. And so we have a variety of tools that we draw from to help them get it. We create group work. We have worksheets, we have problem sets, we use real world examples. And we try to guide our students through the process of, kind of, generally understanding the knowledge to mastering the knowledge. And typically we run out of time, so we create homework packets.

We create problem sets, and we send them home. And students are expected to go home, use the limited knowledge they gain in class, and complete this homework. The concepts of flipping the classroom are simply that, we're going to flip this around. In this mentality we teach our students to gain the new knowledge outside of the classroom. Their homework is no longer reinforcing the knowledge but gaining the knowledge. In class then we take 100% of the time and dedicate it to helping those students master the knowledge that they gained outside of the classroom.

Over the next half hour, we're going to talk about this concept in depth. We're going to look at teaching best practices. We're also going to talk about how this can be a benefit to the student, and things that we need to have as considerations before we start using the Flip Classroom in our own classes.
