Creativity and Innovation
Educators strive to create a classroom that instills creativity and
innovation. In this discussion, you will think about the creative and
innovative instructional approach known as the the flipped classroom
making direct connections to the Common Core State Standards and
teacher decision making based on student assessments. Reflecting on your
previous discussion on CCSS
in Week Two as well as your previous discussions from EDU671: Fundamentals of Educational Research about the flipped classroom
, you will complete the three parts of this discussion’s initial post.
There are three parts to this discussion, which are described below.Part 1
- Discuss how the flipped classroom idea can be used in conjunction with CCSS (Math or English Language Arts)
- Describe ways you could incorporate technology used in the flipped classroom idea to support the Framework for 21st century learning in the classroom as it relates to decision making based on student assessments.
Now, think about assessments you have created or used in the past to address the following:
Part 3Guided Response:
- Discuss if a school or teacher should use a
multimedia resource that is absolutely amazing in delivering both
content and assessment, but is not accessible.
- Evaluate whether the resource must be excluded from a course if there are no reasonably equivalent accessible alternatives.
Respond to at least two peers. Your
replies should include a question about the incorporation of CCSS and
the Framework for 21st Century learning in your peers’ posts and should
offer an additional resource for consideration that supports an
alternative viewpoint. Though two replies is the basic expectation, for
deeper engagement and learning, you are encouraged to provide responses
to any comments or questions others have given to you, including the
instructor. Responding to the replies given to you will further the
conversation and provide additional opportunities for you to demonstrate
your content expertise, critical thinking, and real world experiences
with this topic.
