  1. Flipping the Classroom Visuals and Sound Camtasia/ITunes Doceri

  2. Flipping the Class Room • Minimize in class lectures • Use class room to actively solve problems • Groups – students work exercises together in class • Work sheets • Wiley • Use videos to help students outside class room with • Content • Online homework • Projects • Tests

  3. Principles of Accounting • Required Course for Admission to Business School • New language for most students • Heavy emphasis on • Mathematical relationships • Problem solving • Critical thinking • Distinguishing relevant information from irrelevant information • Applying concepts in new ways • High drop out rate – 20 to 40% in basic course

  4. Signs of A Struggling Student • Poor test results • Failure to complete online assignments • Students appear to get stuck – don’t finish • Assignments missed altogether • Inability to answer questions in class • Other “tells” • Tears • Glassy Eyed Stares

  5. Why Students Struggle • Accounting Itself • Unfamiliar language • Not intuitive • Difficulty in understanding the underlying “pattern” • Student Skills Less than Optimal • Math • Time management • Problem solving • Focus • Even typical “A” and “B” Students Struggle

  6. Goals • Promote active, thinking learners • Foster a 360 learning environment • Inside class room • Outside of class room • Stimulate class room • Problem solving • Questions • Discussions • Help resolve stuck points outside the class room • Create different tools for different learners

  7. Achieving the Goals • Creating an online course with focused class work • Emphasizing different tools for different learners • Videos • Take home group exercise sheets • Wiley online tools • Written Reviews • Repetition through various experiences • Incentivized class room participation

  8. The Learning Tools Focus • Blackboard • Quizzes • Written Test Reviews • Posted Power Points • I Tunes U • Homework “How To” • Chapter Lectures • Test Reviews • Content • Problem Solving

  9. Teaching Plan By Chapter • Pre Class Room • Blackboard Graded Quiz Taken Prior to Class Work • Posted Power Points for Review • Video Previewing Content • Classroom - Either • Exercise Work Sheet to Be Filled in During Class • Work in Groups • Points Awarded for active participation • Or, combined lecture and Wiley problem review • Frequent group presentation of problems

  10. What I Do With Camtasia • Camtasia Video • Homework Videos • Create a Wiley homework with different numbers • Demonstrate how to approach it • Emphasize text concepts • Identify software glitches in the problem • Project Videos • Similar Process • Use a problem like the one in the project • Show how to approach and create formulas, etc. • Let them figure out key issues • Test Review Videos • Review content and issues • Include illustrations from the text book

  11. How I Do It • Pull up Wiley or Excel on my screen • Record as I set up the problem • Can pause while I move to screens, set up numbers etc. • Try to keep them under 10 minutes – 5 is optimal • Keep them informal • If I make mistakes – I identify them and move on • If possible, I highlight the error and how to avoid it • Highlight the Excel screen as I am working • Crack jokes whenever possible

  12. Process Points • The video moves to I-Tunes • Lag time of 20 – 45 minutes • Teach students how to use I-Tunes • Send them to Commons for technical help • Pointers • Label clearly • Post early enough to be useful • Explain what they will be seeing • Advertise the product

  13. Results • Too soon to confirm trend • Drop rate appears to be significantly down • Homework grades/utilization have improved • The added curve points seem to be decreasing • Need more time to confirm progress • Attendance has improved • We have had some good discussions, questions and even disagreements • I have received • Hand written thank you note • Emails thanking me OR DEMANDING MORE VIDEOS • Favorable comments on my student reviews • Issues • Some students who need them are not using them

  14. Tools Use – Principles I BN

  15. Tools Use – Intermediate Acc. I

  16. Tools Use Principles I CN

  17. Rough Comparison of Group Hits

  18. Typical Low Activity Student

  19. Future Improvements • Will post and record Mind Maps • Done on Mind Genius • Need to create better access points for maps • Master Doceri – for creating videos from the IPad • Allows you to mark up screen shots while you speak about them • Will post and record my Smart board class notes for the day • Will cull out and clean up the collection

  20. Conclusions • Making videos is a demanding process • Appears to be paying off in student interest and results • Requires a high level of focus from the teacher • Should be part of a good teaching plan • Camtasia is SUPER EASY TO USE! • THE CLASSROOM MAY NOT BE FULLY FLIPPED BUT I AM TURNING IT UPSIDE DOWN!
