This is one of my favourite talks. I have won several awards for online content and courses. In this presentation I talk through the principles that underpin the NILE/TTV.com PowerUp Flipping your Class course that has been shortlisted for a British Council ELTons award. This draws on both research and 17 years of working on blended/online courses.
Blogging is a very useful technolology that we can use in our teaching and learning.In this lecture Russell Stannard expalins why Blogging is such a useful teacher tool being used by both the teachers and the students.

Blooms Taxonomy can be used to help us understand how we use technology in education. It helps us to understand the tasks and activities we set and how to exploit technology to achieve both lower and higher order thinking skills. Blooms Taxonomy is a useful way of thinking about approaches to teaching like the Flipped Classroom. It emphasises the point that learning is not about simple understanding of key concepts but requires processing and linking to other knowledge. Effectively using technology in education means making choices about the tasks and activities we decide to do with our students and how these help to support learning. This lecture deals with some of the these issues.
This is a quick video that takes you through the theory behind the Flipped Classroom and talks a bit about the educational technologies you need to learn to produce a Flipped Classroom course. This lecture is based on lots of experience as I used the approach in much of my teaching in the past and have been teaching, researching and looking at the Flipped Classroom for many years. I tried to be really concise and clear in this lecture and it highlights two key tools that you can use in a Flipped Classroom context.
