    1. How effective it was. The charts the websites supplied were really surprising.
    2. There are many different avenues (smart record, educreations, ask3)
    3. How widespread it is throughout the country

    1. Can definitely do supplemental material or a review
    2. Do a teaser for the next class or bonus questions fort he students who actually do it.

    1. What do you do about students who don’t watch/can’t watch? They’re doubly behind and how you handle that problem repeatedly?

  2. Annie Heinzelmann and Alex Macalik says:

    3 unknowns:
    1 Began by creating videos for children who stayed home sick
    2 The classroom does not have to be completely flipped 100% of the time
    3 The video doesn’t have to be a lesson, it could be a review or a preview of the activity.

    2 things to use:
    1 A preview of the classroom activity
    2 If a lot of students are gone, you could actually record a lesson to post online for those absent and for those who were not absent to use as review

    1 concern:
    How to get the students to actually watch the video before class

  3. Megan Moore says:

    3 Things I learned:
    – I found it interesting that the flipping classrooms idea started with PowerPoint, because it has expanded SO much since then.
    – The percentage of adult internet users who view educational videos doubled between 2007 and 2010
    – Flipping the classroom is very similar to what we’re used to in English classes in reading before class and analyzing material while in the classroom.

    2 Ideas to Use:
    – using an app or website where students can ask questions of the teacher and/or respond to each other and collaborate while viewing the videos
    – collaborating with other teachers to produce a library of lessons for students to revisit. Each teacher also wouldn’t have to make as many lessons, as each could choose an area of expertise to make videos for, which other teachers could use

    1 Question/Concern:
    – I wonder how difficult it would be to get students accustomed to this style of a class, because it probably wouldn’t be what they are used to in their other classes. In some ways it reminds me of a few college courses I’ve had, and one college-like high school class, and I’m not certain that enough students would be able to handle the personal discipline aspect of it.

    3 things I learned:
    -Flipping the classroom is where students watch a video at home before coming to class. The video prepares students for the lesson or activity they will complete in class.
    -Flipping the classroom allows teachers to have more class time for activities or investigations.
    -Flipping the classroom videos were first used as make-up work when students missed class.

    2 Ideas:
    -These videos can be very beneficial for students to watch if they didn’t understand the lesson or were absent.
    -The videos can be used as a review to prepare students for the activity they will complete in class (factoring, radicals, etc)

    1 Question:
    -How many students will realistically watch these videos? If they don’t watch them, how will teachers still have students complete their activity planned for the day?

    3 things I learned: It was started to share lessons with sick kids. It opens up a lot of time in class for deeper activities. One school had an improvement from 50%+ to 19% of students failing English and 44% to 13% of students failing math. 2 things I plan to use: Using videos to introduce topics for an activity that will take a while in class. Putting test reviews in the videos so students can come to class with questions. 1 question I have: How often should you use videos for students at home before it becomes too much for them to keep up with?

  6. Kimberly Evans says:

    I learned what flipping the classroom is. I also learned that you can record on a SmartBoard. I also learned that some students actually do better with a flipped classroom which was surprising to me. I like the idea of recording videos for students to watch if they were absent. I think in some instances it would be nice to have students review concepts at home in order to have more class time for activities and work. How will this work in a low income community where not all students have internet access?

  7. Nataly Espinosa says:

    I learned what flipped classroom is, how long it’s suppose to last, and its advantages. I can use technology to introduce a lesson. I still don’t know how useful could be.
