The Flipped Classroom

Here is a great website and video to explain the flipped classroom.

What is the flipped classroom?

There are many tools that can be used on the flipped classroom. Here are two that are being used in many flipped classrooms:

  • Screencasting – Screencast-o-matic helps a teacher by recording everything they do on a computer. The teacher can add audio to the recording by clicking in the microphone button. This tool is very helpful when the lesson requires modeling of an online tools and the students have the ability to watch. The teacher does not have to install any software to use this tool, it is all online.
  • Sock Puppets – You will use your voice to make short and fun lessons put on by Sock Puppet characters. Create your own background and puppets. Because this is an app you will have to put your creativity on the social media cites to get your information out to other teachers and parents.
