Flipping Professional Development by Students?

Nov 20, 2012 by

Flipping the classroom where students watch content at home and then do homework in class is certainly a hot topic with the teachers I speak with on a daily basis.  There is loads of information out there on flipping and it seems to be an effective way of instruction for some teachers.

Rob Zdrojewski is having his students flip in a different way as students post 90-second videos on how-to-use certain technologies on his blog.  Rob will be a fellow presenter at FETC 2013.  I encourage you to check out the link below for both how you could do this with your student and for examples on how to perform certain functions with technology in the classroom.

 

I am a big proponent of students doing more and teachers doing less.  I think this is a great example of teachers learning from students and students learning critical thinking, screencasting skills, communication skills, etc.  This is exactly the kind of thing we need to be doing more often in our classroom both so students can learn media literacy and we can learn how to be more technically savvy.
