Has anyone tried having a flipped classroom? I read that it reduces the amount of homework/work students have to do outside of class.

I have, and it worked well. One use-students watch brief videos at home rather than in school. That way they can watch as many times as they want, pause it...I found that the students learned more that way.

It only works when students are willing to do the independent work at home. Grunt work at home, project in class. I’ve seen it work for Science but that’s it.

I struggled with it for 2 years before close down. Students are unwilling to watch power points or videos before class. These are the same students who don't do homework. You have to be consistent about not allowing time in class to complete the prerequisite work. I spend a few mins asking questions or taking questions, then right into practice work. I love all the time to work with the students. Much better use of time. I teach math to 11th and 12th.

I teach Chemistry and I find that it works best with Honors and AP, but CP students don’t want to watch it for homework, which defeats the purpose of saving time. So depends on your students, you will have to be consistent and insist on it being procedural.

*important caveat: I teach upper level Math It took a while to get in a groove with it, but now it is pretty smooth. Many students have started to tell me they think this is the best way to learn "hard" math classes. I can't imagine trying to teach algebra 1 like this.

Hey! You’re 100% right. FYI does work with Algebra 1... just takes longer to get them used to taking ownership and being held accountable. It usually takes a few rounds of failing grades and binge-watching old videos for students to realize it’s worth doing as it’s assigned and keeping up to date. Of course, it depends on the class level and general habits of the district. But especially in this virtual environment with shoddy tech and WiFi? It’s the way to go... post the lessons & materials. Kids who miss class can learn at their own pace without needing you. You don’t have to be a broken record. Plus... sub plans next year are ready to go.

I think with hybrid learning, flipped classroom and independent, out-of-classroom, learning are a must! Today, it is a necessary skill that will benefit the student at most grade levels and beyond, especially into college. However, it requires the teacher to follow up with students (and sometimes their parents) if the work is not being done or is inadequate. I record my Google Meets so students can review the lesson as needed. I post them on Google Classroom as a Material. Students can pause the video, practice the skill, and do the assignment; moving on at their own pace. They can also skip ahead to the exact portion that they need to review. I have also started to use Google Meets breakout rooms so small groups (no more than 3) can work on projects or sub-projects together and then report back to the large group. Great for jigsaw learning! My students really enjoy my videos as opposed to watching someone else they don’t know. No more excuses for household distractions, bathroom breaks, or being absent! Just watch the video and do the assignment! They even remind me to hit the “record” button if I forget!!

I teach HS math and I record my notes (PowerPoint) and post them in Google Classroom for students to watch and copy. I then refer to them (the vocabulary) as I move through problems. I then use Edulastic for concept checks in which the students can use their notes. Many of the questions comes directly from the power points so it’s clear to who has watched them and written the down and then a couple of examples to see if they understood the process I went through in practice problems.

I trained for it all last year then launched it this year and I LOVE it. I even use Prezi to make my own videos so the classes get direct instruction from me and they can watch as many times as the need or read the text at their own pace outside of class then we practice together in class. They are learning so much and are engaged. The whole thing has been really fun for me too.

I taught average 7th graders, and 1 and 2 year accelerated 7th graders with flipped classroom. It was great. I had a few kids asking me why more teachers did not flip their classrooms. It takes time to train the kids. Many kids are used to direct instruction in the classroom, so to now actually ask them to be active, it took some kids a while to get used to it. But overall, I called it a success.

I don’t, but a math teacher at my school does. Many of my students HATE it, but I also teach Honors World Lit. I don’t know if the gifted students just hate it or if all of the students hate it. I think the teacher also teaches gifted math, but I don’t know if that matters. Also, a lot of students at my school are raised in single-parent households and have a lot of things to do when they get out of school— so that could be the reasoning behind their logic.

I absolutely love my flipped classroom. Best thing I ever did. I teach 6th grade math. I also teach honors math and they love it the most!
