Special #Flipclass Chat Monday, Sept. 10

Monday, September 10th is the 25th weekly #flipclass chat. After beginning back in March, we have had a great team of moderators form and had increased participation on a weekly basis.

One thing we discovered this summer was that live discussions using Goole+ Hangouts On-Air were a great way to bring in experts in flipping from all over the world to discuss best practice and give tips on how flipping works for them. Stories are one of the best tools for learning, and we want to continue to embrace your stories.

For this broadcast, we're going to highlight classroom norms that work well for us. The beginning of the school year is a time where we get to know kids and learn about our class cultures, but it is also a time to build good habits and set community expectations. When you change the way you think about teaching and learning, that process can become very difficult. We're hoping to give a broad view of teachers who want to share what norms work for them. At the same time, we're all looking to learn some new tools from others.

While we can't all spend time together in the hangout, the audience will have an active role in the discussion. After brief introductions, I will serve as the voice of Twitter to the panel to encourage some Q&A and continued discussion.

  1. Dear Dr. Bennet,
    My name is Courtney Block I am a student at University of South Alabama, and I am taking EDM 310. I just wanted to say before I read your blog the only broadcast network that I actually new about was YouTube. I didn’t realize that Google had a way to broadcast live and record at the same time so viewers could go back and watch again!!! I believe that interviewing teachers asking them about their “norm” is a splendid idea! Not only do we get to see several different ways to teach, but we also get to see what might help our students learn better. We could also create new ways to teach them from what we see other teachers doing, sort of like a revamping of their methods! Also because it is going to be a live feed who ever is watching can ask questions to the teachers and see what methods they have tried and not really succeeded with. and how they fixed them.I am a student who recently decided to become a teacher and I have been so nervous that I won’t do a great job. Listening to others asking questions and seeing that somethings just don’t work, or don’t work for a specific teacher/student is kind of a relief for me. It proves that a teacher has to keep trying new methods, and there is bound to be one or two that work out. Every student and teacher is different and that is why learning the community and culture, such as you stated, in the beginning of the year is very important. I believe that if a teacher does not understand her students or where they come from he/she might have a little more difficulty getting them to listen and learn. There are so many creative ways to learn and I’m glad that I get to see through this broadcast what creative ideas work. So thank you.My twitter is: @cblock26 My Blog: http://BlockCourtneyedm310.blogspot.com/
