I've officially flipped math lessons for a week. I am loving it and my students are too! Here are some of their comments about what they like most about flipping:
5A Students say...
"What I like more of the flipped learning videos is that is very flexible because you can do it every time and everywhere you want to remember something of the last lesson or you can study too so that is what I like more from the flipped learning videos."
"I really like looking at the videos you make with the Prezi because it is more fun than just hearing you. Also because I can go back and check the meaning of words. For example, magnitude."
"I like flipped learning because we can watch the video how much times we want."
"My favorite part of flipped learning is that you could just go at your pace and not make other people wait and start talking and you could just go on if you understood everything. Also, I like the fact that you could just see the part you did not understand as many times as you want."
"The thing that I like the most is that we see things that we are going to learn in the next day of school, just to warm up."
"My favorite thing in flipped learning is that we don't just get a worksheet for homework and just doing it, instead its more easy to see the video and learn new staff."
"I like that we do our homework in class and we do our work at home."
"I like the idea of flipping schoolwork and homework, and watching a video instead of actually listening to the teacher, because when you don't understand, you would have to ask your teacher about it, and it would disturb the class. With flipped learning, we can just go back to the part we didn't understand and just watch it again!"
"My favorite thing about flipped learning is that you can view the videos as many times as you want, and that if somebody does not get it, and you got it you don't have to listen to the teacher saying the same thing."
"I´m loving everything in flipped learning because I don´t like writing because my hand hurts and I don´t forget sheets of homework, so for my that's better and that's what I like about Flipped learning."
Now here's what I am loving about flipping our class...
-All students are engaged
-Easy to differentiate and meet kids where they are
-Students questions about the lesson and quick check questions recorded for documentation
-I can work individually with students without leaving other students hanging
-Students have choice
-My lessons are more focused and concise
-Absent students don't have to ask me what they missed
-Students are gaining knowledge about their learning styles, who they work well with, and how to reflect on what they truly understand
-Immediate feedback for me through the Google form
-Students are responsible and working collaboratively to check and teach each other
