Teaching With Technology Modules

This course is a practicum in which educators and future teachers learn how to implement researched-based practices for teaching with technology across their respective content areas. Course content is framed by the TPACK model of technology integration. Participants learn to guide instructional planning by formulating learning goals, matching pedagogical approaches to goals, identifying appropriate activities and assessment strategies, and choosing technology tools that most effectively support content.

Module 5: Flipping the Classroom

In the field of educational technology, flipping the classroom typically means to create videos containing lecture materials that were previously delivered face-to-face. Instead of coming to class to be lectured, students can view the video lectures in their own time and place. Then, having watched videos of the classroom lectures, students can use classroom time to interact with the professor through more active learning than was possible before the classroom flipped. To learn more about the flipped classroom concept, peruse the following materials and be sure to view the TED Talk video from Salman Khan, who is generally credited with inventing the flipped classroom concept.

Your final assignment in this course is to create a two to three-minute flipped classroom video. When producing your video, you have total freedom in deciding which tools you want to use. You may either create a video of your presentation using your phone, iPad, or other recording device as if you were teaching a lesson in person, or you can do a Khan Academy kind of voice over video for your presentation. It is your choice. In producing your video, you can use any presentation tools you like, such as PowerPoint, Prezi, Google Slides, Canva, and Nearpod. Freely available screencasting software is available at Screencastify and Screencast-o-matic. You can also use video editing software such as iMovie, YouTube, or Camtasia. Your presentation must include uploaded or embedded media in the form of images or animations that add to your presentation. Remember that this is a microlesson: Total length of the video should range between two to three minutes. To submit this assignment, create a new entry in your WordPress blog. Embed your video, give your blog post a title, and write a brief introduction explaining its purpose. After you test the video to make sure it plays correctly from your blog, answer this assignment by submitting the HTTP address of your blog entry. As before, be sure to study the rubric whereby your flipped classroom project will be assessed. The flipped classroom rubric comprises the following elements:
