Teachers often spend class time delivering content, and then students go home and do individual processing work for homework. In the “flipped classroom,” teachers use technology to reorganize classroom time, so students maximize the value of time in class with their teachers and peers. Students do content acquisition individually at home and spend class doing the difficult processing work that can greatly benefit from teacher coaching and peer collaboration. Students can work at their own pace, and come into class for activities more likely to require peer assistance or teacher coaching.
In this session, social studies teachers will learn how to flip their classrooms.
Participants will learn how to:
• Use online social studies content for flipped activities
• Use simple screencasting and media production tools
• Use collaborative platforms to maximize the value of class time together
• Find innovative social studies educators piloting flipped activities
