Part 2: How will students access your videos?
Now that you've seen a few examples, it's time to start planning your own flipped class. To begin, we will pick the platform where you will upload your videos for students to access and view them. The video below will provide you with information about the three platforms that we suggest using at Grandview. Know that you are not limited to these choices!
Below are the links to our top choices for providing flipped lessons to students:
Weebly Pros & Cons
Edmodo Pros & Cons
Google Classroom Pros & Cons
In this blog, a 7th grade Math teacher discusses how she has used Edmodo to flip her classroom. There are plenty of screenshots and explanations to give you the full idea: https://pact10flip.wordpress.com/2012/10/07/my-flipped-math-class-and-edmodo-1-month-down-8-to-go/
Martin City Elementary's 5th grade Math teacher, DeLaina Ellis, has flipped her class using a Weebly website (not sure how to set up a Weebly? Well, there's an eCourse for that for the summer academy so be sure to check it out!). Check out the layout and presentation of the flipped lessons for her students here: http://mrsellis5th.weebly.com/flipped-homework.html
Here is another example of a teacher's Weebly site, but she has presented her lessons in a different format using 'playlists' of different multimedia and presentations created on LessonPaths (free!): http://www.tmiclass.com/morris1
