The twentieth – and final for today – session that I am blogging here at SITE 2017 related to K-12 Online and Blended Learning is:
Flipped Instruction in a Blended Learning Environment
Sign up as a Presiderfor 5:30 PM-7:00 PM in Capitol Ballroom D & E.
Flipping is a pedagogical approach in which direct instruction is moved from the classroom lecture format into a multimedia presentation to be viewed by the student at another time. As a result, the classroom time becomes an interactive learning environment for the teacher and students. There are two models of flipping: 1) The Flipped Model which is synchronous; and 2) The Flipped-Mastery Model which is asynchronous. Two flipping implementation studies were reviewed. One was a high school-wide program in Michigan. The second was a K-12 state-wide program in Idaho. Both studies found increased end-of-year standardized tests scores. Also, the percentage of students passing classes increased. The most improvement was demonstrated with at-risk students. Overall discipline referral decreased. Flipping is a pedagogical approach that may be beneficial for at-risk students with a flipped trained teacher with appropriate resources and the support of school administration.
This is a poster session, so here are the images that I took of the poster.
