Module 6: Implementing Digital Pedagogy and Learning (Part II)
Module 6 focuses on the use of “flipped classrooms” as another useful methodology for implementing digital pedagogy. (In a flipped classroom, students watch pre-recorded videos at home, then come to school to do the homework armed with questions and at least some background knowledge.) Teachers curate videos developed by others and use a variety of tools to construct their own for use in flipped classrooms.
During this module, teachers will be introduced to and explore the following:
- The definition of a “flipped classroom.”
- The relationship and interplay between content, pedagogy, and technology as drivers for the design of learning experiences.
- How to evaluate when it is appropriate to use this approach to personalized learning.
- A variety of tools and tips for making their own videos.
- The technical aspects of screencasting and classroom set-up.
Once they have completed this module, teachers will know how to:
- Describe the research and reasons for using flipped classrooms.
- Evaluate the appropriateness of using flipped classrooms in their practice.
- Make a screencast for use in their classroom.
- Manage the technical aspects of using screencasting in the classroom.
- Describe the implications of the Digital Divide in the use of flipped classrooms.
Sample Performance Indicators
- Teachers develop a screencast for classroom use and post the URL for student access
- Teachers curate a library of videos, by content area, for use in their own “flipped” setting.
- Teachers help other teachers develop and use a screencast for use in their classrooms.
