  19. #txeduchat A9: I'm not yet but several folks on campus have & Ss love doing this!
  20. #txeduchat A9. YESYESYES! one of my favorite things to do. Ss get so excited to take the roll of teacher.
  21. A9- not yet but hope to get there. Harder the younger they are - my 3rd graders will hopefully be there by EOY #txeduchat
  22. #txeduchat A9. YESYESYES! one of my favorite things to do. Ss get so excited to take the roll of teacher.
  23. Q9: Does anyone get their students to create instructional videos? #TXEDUCHAT
  24. @SciAggie @jaherbel #txeduchat We are 4th only on our campus but all students coming online quickly.
  25. @juliasolnek Elementary & middle school authors of Flipping 2.0 will answer Q's about their chapters Tues 9ET/8CT at #flipping20 #txeduchat
  26. @whitneykilgore Like that! "guide on the side" I am going to use this one! Great stuff! #txeduchat
  27. A8: Anyone tried Ask3 for this purpose? I love the way it lends itself to offering feedback, discussion, and asking questions. #txeduchat
  28. I like: Screenr, Jing, Screencast-o-matic, on iPad: Educreations, Explain Everything, TouchCast #TXEDUCHAT
  29. @jbretzmann #txeduchat wonderful example. thanks for the share. now to adapt to the elementary world.
  30. I like: Screenr, Jing, Screencast-o-matic, on iPad: Educreations, Explain Everything, TouchCast #TXEDUCHAT
  31. @jsm0525 I agree. It's their learning. Their group.Their product to show mastery.Their brand being shared w/ world. @txeduchat #txeduchat
  32. R u a 1:1? if not do S have accessRT @SciAggie A7: I use Weebly and Edmodo to communicate w/Ss and provide access to course #txeduchat
  33. @RabCaptJack Less Direct Teach = YEAH!! You are now the guide on the side :) Good work! #txeduchat
  34. A7: I use Weebly and Edmodo to communicate w/Ss and provide access to course material #txeduchat
  35. @jsm0525 that's amazing! Letting go of control is a big risk that is hard to take! #ItPaysOff #txeduchat
  36. Q8: What free video creation tools are you using to be able to flip your class? examples? #TXEDUCHAT
  37. A7: Flipped learning still requires differentiation, evolving with the learners. #txeduchat
  38. A7 follow up, how are your Ss accessing the flipped content outside of your classroom? #txeduchat
  39. @jsm0525 #txeduchat Do the students engage to a higher degree with added level of control they gain?
  40. A7: Flipped learning still requires differentiation, evolving with the learners. #txeduchat
  41. A7 the biggest thing I have learned is that by flipping my classroom it has taken me out of being in total control of my class #txeduchat
  42. @braxtonjm #txeduchat how are you holding your Ss accountable? would be interested in other approaches to this.
  43. @jbretzmann Relationships require we respond to Ss needs even when they are not politically correct or fit the current fad #txeduchat
  44. A7: Flexibility works. Responding to Ss needs works. Making #flipclass the best experience for YOUR Ss in your own way works. #txeduchat
  45. A7: If S-centered is goal, realize that some (few) learn best alone,or in ways we wouldn't suggest (lecture). #LearnedTheHardWay #txeduchat
  46. @Tom_Kilgore Thanks Tom! It's def. a work in progress as Ss and I evolve, but there are signs of real engagement, understanding. #txeduchat
  47. A7 #flipclass is a mindset and an attitude - not an algorithm. There is more than one correct implementation approach #txeduchat
  48. @RabCaptJack #txeduchat Agreed! I love being able to dive into the hands on and spend less time on the prep.
  49. A6: Flipped learning values time. More meaning use and more meaningful dialogue . #txeduchat
  50. This twitter chat will be available as a Storify on  http://txeduchat.com  end tonight. #txeduchattxeduchat
  51. Q7: What lessons have you learned with flipping? What has worked and what should we avoid? #TXEDUCHAT
  52. @juliasolnek #txeduchat I've seen that as well Julia, some prefer the approach of working in the virtual or flipped space
  53. A6 I am talking math to each one of my students everyday #txeduchat
  54. A6: Less direct teach and many more conversations! Increased background knowledge, more in-depth interactions and lab activities. #txeduchat
  55. #TXEDUCHAT A6- I get to work with students 1:1 or small group,
  56. A6 #flipclass is a paradigm shift. I am there to support Ss learning rather than force-feed it to them. Relationships improve #txeduchat
  57. #TXEDUCHAT A6: Ss I may not get much from in class more willing to participate in the flipped world. true for shy/quiet ones as well
  58. Q6: How has flipping improved student - teacher interactions? #TXEDUCHAT
  59. A5/A6: #flipclass has helped solve the problem of what I want my class to look like. Ss interacting & applying content. #txeduchat
  60. #TXEDUCHAT a5- flip lesson @Home, review 15 min class, lots of time on practice, reteach if needed, extend for those that got #txeduchat
  61. @camcalis #txeduchat Agree completely, adds additional exposure to topic & built in background for some Ss
  62. Q6: How has flipping improved student - teacher interactions? #TXEDUCHAT
  63. #txeduchat a5: I imagine flipprd class being a great support for all students but in particular -students in need of a preview.
  64. #txeduchat a5: I imagine flipprd class being a great support for all students but in particular -students in need of a preview.
  65. I am at 1:1 iPad campus this year and it is a wonderful benefit for students and teachers. #txeduchat
  66. @camcalis #txeduchat Sure helps us on grade level to keep parents informed. Can't imagine paper trails used in the past now!
  67. Tracie from ESC11 jumping in- Are you using mastery learning with flipping? #TXEDUCHAT
  68. @jsm0525 Right on. Test on Friday & the day was very slow. No Ss to talk to! #txeduchat
  69. @ScottCapro #txeduchat That rocks Scott! Testament to the approach for sure! I think it also allows more targeted re-teaching/assessment too
  70. Tracie from ESC11 jumping in- Are you using mastery learning with flipping? #TXEDUCHAT
  71. A5 I teach 42 min periods and the class is over in a blink of an eye #txeduchat
  72. @Tom_Kilgore The PBL and 1:1 has shown dramatic improvement of engagement and a deeper understanding. #txeduchat
  73. @Tom_Kilgore W/ flip we complete a 60 min lesson in 40 w more practice. Time saved is used on group PBL and 1:1 time I get w Ss #txeduchat
  74. A5 #flipclass gives me f:f time to build relationships. That's the secret sauce #txeduchat
  75. @camcalis #txeduchat Sure helps us on grade level to keep parents informed. Can't imagine paper trails used in the past now!
  76. RT @txeduchat RT @whitneykilgore: Q5: Does flipping give you more time to solve problems in class? (share a story) #TXEDUCHAT
  77. Q5: Alumni now accessing math videos 2 help college, skill set learned due to flipping in secondary geometry and alg math class #txeduchat
  78. A5 #flipclass gives me f:f time to build relationships. That's the secret sauce #txeduchat
  79. Q5: Does flipping give you more time to solve problems in class? (share a story) #TXEDUCHAT
  80. #TXEDUCHAT I sent home info and parents signed up at home. Most of my 3rd graders don't sign up. Just parents for this age. #txeduchat
  81. @ScottCapro Sign up info on board & "If u BROUGHT your phone today & want to... " Some might not have one @khurdhorst @remind101 #txeduchat

  84. @ScottCapro @khurdhorst @remind101 #txeduchat Our grade level had them do it on meet the teacher, sent texts to test that 1st night
  85. @ScottCapro love the emphasis on meaningful homework. Adults aren't motivated by work for works sake, students aren't either. #txeduchat
  86. @ScottCapro @khurdhorst @remind101 #txeduchat Our grade level had them do it on meet the teacher, sent texts to test that 1st night
  87. @SciAggie Great idea! Could you share the link. I would love to pass it along. #txeduchat
  88. A4:I have a course information page and lots of material to inform parents about #flipclass #txeduchat
  89. #txeduchat A4. Ss huge factor in that. parents love knowing Ss engaged and learning. makes support of "nontraditional" things less scary.
  90. Q4: How do you get parents on-board with the flipped class approach? #TXEDUCHAT
  91. @Tom_Kilgore #txeduchat exactly! can get a "plug" into the teacher's brain. no more Ss "that's not how the teacher does it!" =)
  92. A4 I talked about it at open house. I was asked to do a BOE presentation and I put in a piece about how parents can be involved #txeduchat
  93. @braxtonjm That's a better way of saying it! The buy-in is for the learning, not the approach. #txeduchat
  94. A4:I have a course information page and lots of material to inform parents about #flipclass #txeduchat
  95. #txeduchat A4: From my view as a parent, makes the process more transparent & I can help my Ss more
  96. #txeduchat A4. Ss huge factor in that. parents love knowing Ss engaged and learning. makes support of "nontraditional" things less scary.
  97. #TXEDUCHAT A4- it sells itself! Parents see learning and can help students/ be involved! #txeduchat
  98. #TXEDUCHAT A4- it sells itself! Parents see learning and can help students/ be involved! #txeduchat
  99. A4: Last year letter to Parents.This year nothing. We'll see if they buy in when we talk at conferences this week. Ss R learning #txeduchat
  100. @JenniferMiller9 #TXEDUCHAT tutorials for parents is essential as well! especially since learning is so different now!
  101. @ScottCapro #txeduchat Do students ask better questions or have you seen indications they are engaging to a higher degree?
  102. @JenniferMiller9 #TXEDUCHAT tutorials for parents is essential as well! especially since learning is so different now!
  103. @JenniferMiller9 #TXEDUCHAT tutorials for parents is essential as well! especially since learning is so different now!
  104. Q4: How do you get parents on-board with the flipped class approach? #TXEDUCHAT
  105. @Mason4learning Not a counselor,but elementary flipper: @TechNinjaTodd You should connect w/ him. He loves to share. #txeduchat
  106. A3: Flipping allows my HW to have purpose. Kids get an intro to the topic at home, practice and mastery are in class, with me. #txeduchat
  107. @SciAggie #txeduchat Welcome Gary, we are talking about flipping the classroom tonight!
  108. #TXEDUCHAT A3- yes, focused on what they are learning right now.. Reinforces and extends. #txeduchat
  109. A3 flipping makes me really analyze my focus & brings more meaningful connections because of that specialized focus. #txeduchat
  110. #txeduchat A3 yes and no. a huge YES if the Ss are actually doing it at home, no when it isn't. however enthusiasm of other Ss powerful tool
  111. @jsm0525 #txeduchat Sounds like a great way to have clearer formative assessment
  112. A3: Hmewrk can be more meaningful in #flipclass because Ss in my class know they're going to need that info organized for inclass #txeduchat
  113. A2 I am working with all of my students one at a time knowing exactly what they are doing or not doing #txeduchat
  114. A2: Ask Questions. #Flipping is not just video, video only a tool, #instruction is still needed. #txeduchat
  115. @juliasolnek #txeduchat That is a great point, Ss can access & interact with built in wait time and think time
  116. A2: they ability for kids to rewind the learning is so essential. they take it at their own speed. #txeduchat
  117. Q3: Does flipping your instruction allow the homework to be more meaningful? How? #TXEDUCHAT
  118. A2 flipping allows for more time with Ss and naturally lends to differentiation as misconceptions arise. #txeduchat
  119. A2: Like to describe it as going from being the radio to being the telephone. No longer broadcasting. #txeduchat
  120. #TXEDUCHAT Ss have the ability to extend their own learning#txeduchat
  121. A2: they ability for kids to rewind the learning is so essential. they take it at their own speed. #txeduchat
  122. Jeffery Herbel IT Director from Enid OK, looking to see how flipping is being done around the US! #txeduchat
  123. A2 flipping allows for more time with Ss and naturally lends to differentiation as misconceptions arise. #txeduchat
  124. Consider #HS students teach content 2 audiences, #flipping for community comp courses & #spanish how to videos to engage parents #txeduchat
  125. A2: Talk to every student every day.See where Ss are at & ask Q's or give A's when needed. Wonderful exhaustion end of every day #txeduchat
  126. A2: they ability for kids to rewind the learning is so essential. they take it at their own speed. #txeduchat
  127. Q2: How does flipping your classroom allow you to differentiate instruction? #TXEDUCHAT
  128. hello! I'm an elementary school counselor interested in extending my reach/extending time via flipped classroom guidance lessons #txeduchat
  129. Q2: How does flipping your classroom allow you to differentiate instruction? #TXEDUCHAT
  130. A1: Vids have become less important. Ss reading/taking notes. Amazing discussions in class. Create product to show mastery. #txeduchat
  131. @txeduchat Definitely! Especially Kidblog. They love it! They are willing to engage in things they used to think were "boring" #txeduchat
  132. #txeduchat A1: Just getting started myself but folks all over campus using the approach successfully!
  133. A1 I teach blended learning, but flip certain skill videos like "how to use a microscope," etc. SS watch before lab day #TXEDUCHAT
  134. #TXEDUCHAT A1- I use discovery ed videos, ereaders, math curriculum videos, kidblog, edmodo #txeduchat
  135. A1: @whitneykilgore 3rd semester of flipping AP Government with a modified-Mastery model. #txeduchat
  136. #TXEDUCHAT This is my 2nd year of flipping. I use mostly for math and science. #txeduchat
  137. #txeduchat A1. We've been using kidblog, making tutorial videos, and assigning videos for homework
  138. @txeduchat Great to be here. I can offer my experiences. "insight" might be ambitious. :) #txeduchat
  139. Q1: Is anyone flipping their classrooms now? If yes, share what you are doing. #TXEDUCHAT
