Rank #1: Flipping the Flipped Classroom with the In-Class Flip

Podcast cover
Read more
Flipped learning has become wildly popular in education. Unlike a traditional course setup, where content is delivered in class and students apply and practice their learning through homework, the flipped classroom turns that arrangement on its head: The initial content delivery happens at home, and then students and teachers re-converge in class to apply and practice their learning. In this episode, Mark Barnes identifies the biggest problem with the trendy flipped classroom and provides some simple strategies teachers can use to flip learning back to the classroom, with the in-class flip. This is Flipping Flipped Learning. See step-by-step details on the strategy at http://hacklearningpodcast.com. Talk about on Twitter at #HackLearning.

Rank #9: 82: How to Improve Reading with the 80/20 Analysis

Podcast cover
Read more
Hacking Literacy author Gerard Dawson wonders, Why are required texts often so inaccessible? These texts are often not modern. They may take place in a different historical, geographical or cultural setting than the setting of your classroom. They are often written at a reading level that may far exceed that of your students, and the experiences of the characters may not immediately appear to be relevant to your students’ lives.
With all that working against us, we still can make required texts work for our students. But, it takes a hack -- the 80/20 analysis.
Learn how to employ this cool strategy to engage even your most reluctant readers.
