I first met Anna Conway in Moscow. She is one of the most impressive teachers I have ever met and I was lucky to join one of her classes in Armenia where she teaches. Anna makes great use of technology in education and uses a range of tools including Edmodo. Edmodo is a technology that I have made extensive use of too. It is great for the Flipped Classroom and for
Aysun, a teacher in Turkey, uses Kahoot in a range of ways with her students. In this interview she talks about how she uses a Kahoot. She talks about some of the new options and how she uses for a test/teach/test approach. She also explains that she uses Kahoot individually, whereas I tend to use it in groups. Aysun is a great teacher with lots of experience and it is interesting to hear her tips and ideas.
Dr Eddy Moran is a lecturer at Stiring University. I saw a wondeful presentation of his on the Flipped Classroom where he spoke about the use of the Commnuity of Inquiry Framework and how it can be used to better understand the impact of the Flipped Classroom. I like the framework as it provides a more balanced view of how the Flipped Classroom might impact on our teaching and learning. Watching a video at home is not the same as working with the teacher in the classroom and there are key reasons why there might be limits on the Flipped Classroom and its impact on teaching and learning. This is an interview worth watching and one that I learnt a lot from.
Geordie Raine talking about how he uses Present.Me to flip his classes. This is a great interview where Geordie talks about one of the most useful educational technologies I have used called Present.Me. Geordie talks about how he uses the technology to create flipped learning content that helps him to deal with the heavy learning load on A levels and how this frees up more time in the classroom for focusing on the exams and revision. Geordie talks about some very creative ways that he produces flipped content
Glenn Standish is the Director of Studies at IH Torun Poland. He recently contacted me on Facebook to say how impressed he was with Wix. Wix is a tool for creating really professional looking websites really quickly and very cheaply ( actually for free unless you decide to upgrade). So I interviewed Glenn to find out more about working with Wix. It's a great interview and if you are thinking of making your own website, creating a profile, setting up a school site or a blog, then I really recommend listening.
