Presenting at CUE Conference 2012 in Palm Springs

Tomorrow I am flying to Palm Springs where I will have the pleasure of both attending and presenting at CUE 2012. The Computer Using Educators conference promises to inspire with topics that will support educators in exploring the way technology can be woven into curriculum to engage students, improve learning outcomes and inspire innovation!

I’m looking forward to seeing Rushton Hurley, Steve Hargadon, Diane Maine, Alice Keeler, and more! Check out my schedule:

“Don’t Just Flip Your Classroom- Transform It!” (Saturday at 9:30AM) is my session on flipped instruction. My session will focus on the variety of media you can use to successfully flip your instruction. Most teachers think they have to record and host videos online for students to view, but that is just the tip of the iceberg! If you are camera shy or don’t have the time or tools to produce your own tutorials, demonstrations or lectures, come learn about alternative strategies for flipping your instruction to engage students, drive higher-order thinking and save time! I will discuss the benefits of wrapping content in dynamic discussions and collaborative group work online.  I will provide resources, suggestions and strategies to answer the following questions:

  • How do I go about designing a flipped instruction lesson? What happens in class? What happens at home?
  • What do I do if students don’t do their homework?
  • If I use online discussions and collaborative group work, how can I make sure dialogue online is supportive and respectful?
  • How can I build on the content viewed online with student-centered assignments?
  • How can I use mobile devices and QR codes to amplify curiosity in the classroom?

If any of these topics interest you, join me on Saturday morning. I look forward to meeting other educators interested in the potential of blending online work into their curriculum using web 2.0 tools.

I will be tweeting from CUE 2012. Follow me at @CTuckerEnglish. I’ll share any fun tech tools I hear about and share the best take aways from each session!

    I think you have a very important point here. Flipping the classroom is more than publish recorded videoclips. I have seen many fantastic concepts with recorded video and the teachers doing this do a great job. But…. it is also important to communicate to other types of teachers that they still can flip the classroom without creating a lot of multimedia content. Most teachers are unfortunaltely not multimedia litterate but can still work with the concepts “Fliping the classroom” build upon.

    Have you published your presentation from CUE 2012 somewhere?
    It would have been nice to see what you presented.

      Hello Morten,

      I have added my power point presentation as a PDF to the Presentations & Materials page of my blog. You will see a picture of the first slide. Below it I have attached the PDF of my complete presentation. I will try to do this in the future. Thank you for the suggestion. Let me know if you have any questions about the presentation!
