  4. Include an Online Poll
  5. Make Videos & Other Flipped Materials Part of the Assignment

 

1. Make your materials easy to find.

Having classroom tools, curricula, and materials available for students whenever they need it can improve motivation and learning, Consider an LMS that lets you embed videos and other media into courses, making it easy for students to know where to access your flipped classroom materials.

2. Ask students to do more than just watch.

Encourage students to actively participate in their learning by letting them reflect on what they’ve seen outside of class so they are better able to work together in the classroom to apply what they’ve learned.

3. Don’t start from scratch!

Save time by using Open Education Resources. Remix content and courses that have already been curated, developed and implemented by educators across the country.

4. Include an online poll with your flipped classroom materials.

With student input, you’ll get a clear direction of their understanding and next steps needed in teaching difficult concepts. Polls can also allow students to voice their opinions, paving the way for deeper discussions during class time.

5. Make videos or other flipped materials part of an assignment.

If you share a video or an image, such as a work of art or a page of an assignment, you can have students submit reflections or start a discussion.
