Two of my students (Danielle and Emily) from the Computer Educator Licensure (CEL) program at Indiana University Bloomington were able to join an episode of the Flipped Learning Network on the Edreach Network. The host, Troy Cockrum (@tcockrum), was selected as a 2013-2014 Jacobs Educator and has been a great asset to IU’s teacher education program. Troy recently published his own book, Flipping Your English Class to Reach All Learners: Strategies and Lesson Plans that is worth checking out, especially if you are interested in re-examining how you run your English class.
In the “Technology Integration in K-12” course I am teaching this spring, students read several books about innovative instructional approaches, including Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day, Role Reversal: Achieving Uncommonly Excellent Results in the Student-Centered Classroom, and The 5-Minute Teacher: How do I maximize time for learning in my classroom? This podcast was a great opportunity for students to discuss flipping and other teaching methods and participate in a professional discussion with practicing educators. Students in the course are also responsible to identify a teacher who is using the flipped classroom approach or the Results Only Learning Environment (ROLE) approach created by Mark Barnes (@MarkBarnes19), connect with that teacher, and then use Google Hangout on Air to conduct an interview. So far these interviews have been really amazing and I will post a few on this blog on the future.
