We just got back from FETC (the Florida Educational Technology Conference) in Orlando where Karen Ogen and Andrea Rollison attended the Pre-Conference DEN Day of Discovery that was hosted by the fabulous Florida DEN Leadership Team.
This was a full day packed of learning and fun with Dr. Lodge McCammon and NC teacher Katie Gimbar. They explained the Flipped Classroom concept and how it has transformed teaching and learning in Katie’s classroom. If you aren’t familiar with the flipped classroom, visit Dr. Lodge’s FIZZ Project site to find video explanations on how to flip your classroom and video examples from Katie’s classroom. Katie also answers the tough questions about how you can make the flipped classroom concept work for you. Of course, a day with Dr. Lodge McCammon would not be complete without some singing or dancing! Dr. Lodge explained how students can become more engaged in their learning by creating their own video products and we followed his lesson plan for the song “Solids, Liquids, and Gasses”. Finally, we ended by creating paperslide videos. Here is an example of a paperslide video for the same song.
Thanks again to the Florida DEN Leadership team for hosting this wonderful event. Also, don’t forget that all of Dr. Lodge McCammon’s songs can be found on Discovery Education! Just type Dr Lodge in the search box and select “songs” from the drop down box.
