I am looking for a copy of Jon Bergman’s presentation at the NJEA on Fipped Classroom for Social Studies. I took some photos on the presentation, however when I enlarge them in order to read the words and see the images it becomes too blurry to read. Thank you for your help.
I am trying to buy a Wacom Tabet from your store. I was just needing info on Company Name, Address, City, State, Zip, Phone # and Fax # so I could fill out a P.O. to order the tablet.
Our store is only set up to buy through Amazon. So this wouldn’t apply for a PO.
We were invited to “What leaders should know about flipped classrooms” and we do not have a link to access the webinar.
You can get all the info by going here: http://www.swivl.com/wp-content/uploads/landingpage-templates/Fall%20Flipped%20Webinar%20Swivl/
Hi Flipped Class Team,
My name is Jill Bange. I am a first year medical student at the University of Cincinnati. As my first semester as a medical student is coming to a close, I find myself thinking more about the structure of my education. I am fortunate enough to be taught by very talented faculty, but I can’t help but think that my instructional time with these professors is wasted. We spend four consecutive hours a day in a lecture hall being “talked at,” and find ourselves rereading the lectures because we don’t commit the lecture information to long-term memory, anyway. When we are not in the lecture hall, we are learning skills to perform a physical exam in a physician office simulation center. This is an excellent way to learn, and has the potential to be a valuable use of instructional time. However, we are limited to groups of four in a 45 minute session, and not all of us get to practice each skill, and we only get one exposure to each skill. We see one faculty member for about 2 minutes during this session to see if we have questions. To me, this is also instructional time wasted.
I know you must be wondering why I bothered to tell you all of this; the curriculum at my school is outside of your control. I wanted to share my experience with you because I think the Flip Learning model of instruction has tremendous implications at the level of a professional or medical degree. If I had access to interactive content that would allow me to commit medical information to memory, the allotted hours of instructional time that I have at school could be spent interacting with instructors instead of listening to instructors. I and my fellow students could spend four hours asking questions and practicing clinical skills rather than listening (or not) to information that we could read on our own.
My point is, then, that I hope you would consider someday working towards developing Flip Learning products for medical students and other graduate students. I really believe that this method could have an unprecedented impact on medical learning and produce better doctors. I know that schools would not see this until long after I have left the classroom, but I am excited by the prospect nonetheless.
Thank you for the work you are doing, and please contact me if you have any questions about my testimonial.
