No Tech? No Problem! How to Flip Learning for Elementary Students Without Technology at Home

Increased student engagement, differentiation, time efficiency, active learning, and collaboration are just a few of the benefits that the flipped classroom model is said to promote. Unfortunately, for many teachers like myself who teach poverty-stricken students with no access to technology or internet at home, a flipped classroom seems like an impossibility. However, with a little creativity and the right resources, I was able to implement a semi-flipped model in my classes.

    This document offers brief but concise overview on the flipped classroom for all the newbies out there. You quickly understand the definition of flipped learning, associated research and results, and the four pillars of the flipped learning model. I found that the ‘short and sweet’ nature of this article acts as a great reminder to get me back on track when I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with my semi-flipped class.

    This resource is loaded with flipped-classroom insight and information! With a variety of contributing writers, this edition of Cue covers everything from differentiation, training, pedagogy, PD, and personal experiences with flipped learning. Although it is slightly dated being from 2013, the vast majority of the information is completely relevant and useful. I love the variety of topics covered and perspectives given within this one convenient resource. And it’s free!!

    This blog post offers the insight of a middle school teacher who attempts to introduce a modified version of the in-class flip using Edmodo and interactive notebooks with a PBL project. Now that I have implemented my own in-class flip, seeing how others have done it gives me inspiration to make modifications and personalize my flipped learning model even further!

    Weebly has been a LIFESAVER for implementing my in-class flip. As a teacher, Weebly makes it easy to design & personalize a workable class website. Embedding videos, power points, photographs, assessments, & blog posts is effortless with an easy interface & user-friendly design. For students, Weebly is simple to navigate & intuitive to use. Several of my students have even created their own Weebly to showcase their learning! Designing a website is no longer an intimidating task thanks to Weebly!

    I was not lucky enough to find this article prior to implementing the semi-flip in my own class, but I wish that I had! The author outlines a concise approach to the ‘in-class flip’, pointing out the advantages and challenges with an honest perspective. This article was what really affirmed for me that I was on the right track with my own in-class flip (and I heard that phrase, ‘in-class flip’, for the first time here-it’s perfect)!
