Flipping the classroom is about minimizing the amount of time we spend on content delivery in the classroom and maximizing time spent on challenging students to be active, collaboraative and creative. Video lectures are more effective for delivering content to students and can be 60-80% shorter than live lectures.
what should we do with all that extra class time?
Encourage students to explore their creativity by creating paperslide videos.
Get your students up and moving, discussing content as they walk.
If you're ready to incorporate more movement into your classroom, try kinesthetic lectures.
Use the class time to have your students engage in conversation about the content or answer questions as a team. This is a simple strategy that can be used in small or large classrooms.
Challenge your students to create their own version of #TheSingleIssue, providing a summary and commentary on an article from popular press.
