MY FLIPPED CLASSROOM – MY VISION AND HOPES FOR THE FUTURE.
The first post of a long journey and change in mindset.

“If there is a YouTube video explaining what you’re about to say then you should be out of a job…”
A rather powerful quote; I personally loved it! Imagine I can save countless hours over a term using this model and think how far I can push those children towards higher thinking skills.
Now, I’m not trying to endorse that standing and telling children is completely and utterly wrong, as there will always be a time and a place for it. Some children have been quite successful learning in this way. There will always be children who have not understood a concept and will need a personal, human intervention to dispel the misconception.
Relationships are key to a successful learning experience. Children and adults need to know that you care and that you are there to listen, understand and help them.
“Not all my children can get online….”
A good point, not all children can. Hard to believe in 2014, but still very true. During their talk, Aaron Sams and John Bergman talked about burning DVDs for children to take home, allowing time in school to watch or listen to the videos etc. There will always be a way. Leaving an iPad or video running in the class – an Interactive learning wall if you will.
How many times have you watched a video on YouTube, learning a new skill about fixing your car, sketching a portrait or baking a cake? How many time have you paused and rewound part of it? The biggest advantage I can see is ‘You can pause and rewind your teacher.’ I love that.
The future seems exciting and very, very interactive. Pause, rewind, pause rewind,
In my last post I wrote about using video to teach a computing skill on GarageBand – http://videoformyclassroom.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/first-classroom-video-garageband.html
A huge amount to think about for now.
In the meantime
