Digital Citizenship in a Nutshell

Why is everyone flipping over education?

and what is flipped learning? Take a look at this short and very useful video about flipped learning. You will find out that flipped learning is not new, is based on research (if done correctly), and can be easy and fun. The chunking and questioning strategy outlined in the presentation will work ONLY if you write your questions at the application level or higher on blooms taxonomy. For example, instead of asking students to define terms just to make sure they watched the videos, ask students to use the information in a new way or make an argument why a statement is correct. For example, when teaching about the parts of the ankle in an anatomy class, ask the students multiple choice questions that include a scenario.

A fifteen year old female soccer player experiences an eversion sprain of her right (dominant) ankle during a game….

The choices should include some common misconceptions for distractors. In class, the discussion of why the distractors are incorrect can be pure gold and can be a good way to review the material instead of passive lecture.
