Flipped History Hangout 7-12-12

On Thursday, six of us met on a Google+ Hangout to discuss issues related to flipping the social studies class. Here are some of the topics we discussed:

  • Framing the flipped history class in terms of learning theory / pedagogy.
  • Planning to flip next year - mastery? ‘Flipping 101’? Other?
  • Classroom structures / norms that ensure success in a flipped history class.
  • Explore-Flip-Apply in History.

It was streamed live and archived here (video below). Other than a few technical glitches (including a sound out of nowhere that prematurely ended our discussion), it was a great first hangout for `history flippers! 

Please comment below with any initial thoughts/reactions/questions that you may have related to this discussion, we would love to have your input and keep the conversation going.

We will try to get the word out ahead of time for the next discussion so that those who would like to view/comment live can do so. The next chat is tentatively scheduled for the 2nd or 3rd week in August.
