I asked my students the following questions about the Flipped Classroom. Here is a sneak peek from the first students to jump on the opportunity to interview :) I will be recording the rest of the students in the next 2-3 weeks as we head into summer break and be posting more videos as they get recorded.
Eventually, I will be putting the videos all together to make a montage of my students to show at the beginning of next year.
Questions answered (in order, in case you just are interested in certain questions):
- What is the Flipped Classroom?
- What is the best part about the Flipped Classroom?
- What part of the Flipped Classroom this last year was most beneficial to you as a student?
- What is a WSQ? What does it look like at home and what do you do with it in class?
- Give advice to a student on how to get the most out of the lecture videos.
- Give advice to a student on how to get the most out of in class time.
- Give advice on using the WSQ charts to a future student.
- Give advice on how to succeed in the Flipped Classroom in general to a future student.
- Give advice to students next year on how to get along well with Mrs. Kirch and succeed in her class, flipped or not.
STUDENT #5 -
Kirch Comments: good answers, but not sure if I will use any of hers in the final product.
Kirch Comments: good answers, but not sure if I will use any of his in the final product.
Kirch Comments: I really like her entire interview... I will probably use most of her clips.
Kirch Comments: Argh I dislike that this student defines a Flipped Classroom as "a video"... exactly what I'm trying to get AWAY from. I hope to do a much better job of this next year! I do like Question #6, 7, 8, and parts of 9.
Kirch Comments: I like questions 3, 5, 6, 8, 9. I love the comment about having to call her mom in the middle of the day.
Kirch Comments: Good answers, but I'm not sure I'll use any of hers in the final...
Kirch Comments: I like #2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 (hilarious), 9
Kirch Comments: I like parts of #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #8 (especially the "give it a chance"), #9 (take responsibility - don't rely on me for everything!)
Kirch Comments: Parts of #1, #2 (student in control of learning), #3 (learn at own pace), #4 (pieces; her response is fairly long), #5 (good tips), #6 (student responsible, organized, learn priorities), #7 (good tips), #8 (focus on group dynamic), #9 (integrity)
