1. What is Flipped Classroom Instructional Model:

  • Model in which “events that typically take place in the classroom now take place outside the classroom, and vice versa.” (Inverting the class room: A Gateway to Create an Inclusive Learning Environment” Lage, Patt, Treglia, 2000)
  • Teach low level, procedural concepts- things the student does not need the teacher for at home, Low blooms level- remembering/ understanding
  • Allowing for classroom time to be spent on higher level skills of applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating. Students interact and use the material as teacher is the guide on the side

2. Why do it?

More student focus-

  • students learn at different pace- watch as many times as they want, with pauses
  • Students miss important pieces even if in class due to distractions- rewatch
  • Absent students
  • Students not doing homework anyway or can’t do it without help because of missing pieces, etc.
  • Use as review
  • Use class time for activities- communication
HOME: Focus on the learning, remembering, understanding and questioning, especially if you have a good reflection piece.
CLASSROOM: Focus on needs of individual and group, student interaction with each other in activities.

3. What is the process?

1. Objective- low level, procedural (However, this can be adapted according to objectives)
2. Gather lesson material and create outline/script ( best if under 5 minutes but difficult to do)
3. Decide presentation method
4. Create lesson
5. Distribute
6. Reflection/evaluation * (Most important part- hold students accountable)

4. What does it look like?


Lesson for Second year Spanish on - go verbs
Made with Educreations (Powerpoint saved as .jpg and then inserted as slides into presentation)

Evaluation for the same lesson. Students write in answers to last slide question in the one section.
Made with Google Forms which gathers all information in a database so the teacher can check understanding and and handle any questions that student write in.

This is sample information I received.

5. What do I need?


PowerPoint, Prezi,


Educreations, Brainshark, Screenr, Ted Ed


Own website, You tube, school website, Wiki, pen.i.o, Ted Ed


Google forms, Flubaroo with Google Forms, Padlet (Wallwisher), Todays Meet,

Ted Ed, Kahoot

Assignment, Journal,

Educreations:http://www.educreations.com/ can create with photos/slides (taken from PowerPoint as jpeg) or as a whiteboard, pro :you can write on it, it is simple. con: cannot go back to fix it, it will delete it. Must use it on a iPad. Others similiar are Explain Everything and bContext.

Brainshark:http://www.brainshark.com/ Can import PowerPoint with all the animation; pro: animation, can "fix" things- edit, con: cannot write on it.
Preterite lesson on Brainshark

Screenr: http://www.screenr.com/Records what ever is on your desktop (can be a powerpoint) and also can record voice and your face if you want to. It is only for 5 minutes.
Sample school website training screenr

Powtoon: http://www.powtoon.com/edu-home/ Create animated lessons using their art. Great for a variation.

Ted Ed:http://ed.ted.com/ Allows you to use YouTube videos created by you, or anyone else and develop lessons on the site. It includes multiple choice and open ended questions, discussion forum and a place to direct students to other sources. You may respond and keep track of student activity and answers. There are 2 examples below.
Ted Ed "Franco's Ghost"
"Un día de estos" Ted-ed lesson

Edmodo: https://www.edmodo.com/ Excellent site for teachers to store resources in "library" but also can make these available to students. Can assign students videos, and other types of file and allow them to interact on site.

Pen i.o: http://pen.io/Can embed video, evaluation form, worksheets and instructions all on one site and either place it on your website or give students the URL.

Google forms: Easy to create, embed and keep track of what data collected. Used for reflection and accountability. All types of questions available from survey collection to multiple choice. Can use with Flubaroo to create quizzes which then format data and email students their grades.

Flubaroo:http://www.flubaroo.com/ It is a program that can be added onto Google Forms to enable automatic grading and collection of data that can be sent back to students or used by the teacher.

Kahoot:https://getkahoot.com/ Is an online tool to give quizzes and surveys. Very interactive and fun for students both in class and at home.

6. What is important to remember?

First, the accountability of having the students do something with what they learn in the lesson, be it answer questions, summarize, take notes, etc. As stated earlier, Google forms is a great way to collect answers, summarize information and have them ask any questions.

Second, what happens the next day in the classroom is what makes this model work! The students should be engaged with the language and the information. They need to know they are going use what was taught in the flipped lesson that day.
