Upside Down Instruction or the Flipped Classroom is gaining in the education community. The reason for it’s rise in popularity is due largely as a result of increased student understanding and better test scores.
Knewton.com provides an excellent overview of what a Flipped Classroom is and why it is becoming the new norm for teaching and instruction.
Recording your Lecture
In order to create a Flipped environment, you must be able to record your lectures or instructional information for the students. This seems daunting, but it really is quite simple and can be done easily with a little practice.
The online tool that I recommend for this is called Screenr. It is straight forward, provides the tools necessary to create a solid lecture video for your students, Screenr hosts the video on their site, and… It’s FREE!
Take a look at the short video below and then click on over to Screenr and begin playing with it – it is actually a lot of fun!
