9 The Flipped Classroom

10 High School Academic Goal Increase the percent of high school students (whose teachers are participating in the project) receiving a grade of C or higher in Algebra, Geometry, Chemistry, Biology, Physical Science and Physics courses by 3%.

11 Goal NOT Explicitly Shared With Teachers Mastery Learning Standards Based Grading Flipped Classroom

12 Base Line Data ( ) First Semester: 1092/1437 or 76.0% of students received a grade of C or higher. Second Semester: 963/1319 or 73.0% of students received a grade of C or higher.

13 Post Grant Data ( ) First Semester: 1251/1514 or 82.6% of students received a grade of C or higher. Second Semester: 1148/1434 or 80.1% of students received a grade of C or higher.

14 76.0 % 82.6% 73.0% 80.1% Grade Distribution

15 Goal Met? YES!!!! Requirement: At least 3% Increase Results: First semester - 6.6% increase in C’s or better. Second semester - 7.1% increase in C’s or better.

16 Middle School Academic Goal The percentage of 6-8th grade students whose teachers are participating in the project who score proficient on the Dakota STEP will exceed the percentage of students in classes with non participating teachers who score proficient by at least 3%.

17 Middle School DSTEP Results Science  Grant Participants: 228/287 Students Proficient (79.44%)  Non-Participants: 850/1072 Students Proficient (79.29%) Math  Grant Participants: 630/717 Students Proficient (87.87%)  Non-Participants: 3209/3689 Students Proficient (86.99%)

18 87.87% 86.99% 79.44% 79.29%

19 Goal Met? Although the grant participants had a higher percentage of proficient students, a 3% difference was not realized.

20 Professional Development Goal #1 At the conclusion of the project, 90% of the participating teachers will use 21st Century Tools such as podcasting, wikis, and online collaboration tools as their primary instructional tool 55% of the time.

21 Data Collected State Teacher Technology Survey Teacher Self-Assessment for each Wednesday in the months of October, January, and March Grant Coach Observations

22 Level of Familiarity with 21 st Century Tools Indicator Used: 1(not at all familiar) – 5 (very familiar)

23 Teacher Survey of Confidence with Technology to Support Learning Indicator Used: 1(No Confidence) – 5 (Highly Confident)

24 % of Teachers using 21 st Century Tools in Their Classroom Teacher Self-Assessment indicates 32 of 34 teachers used 21 st Century tool as their primary instructional tool at least once during the reporting days (all Wednesday in October, January, and March.) This translates to 94% of participants.

25 % of Teachers using 21 st Century Tools in Their Classroom Grant Facilitator Drop-In Classroom Observations Occurred during January – February Each participant was observed 2 times 21 st Century Tools being used were recorded. 3 teachers were never observed using 21 st Century tools. 91% of Teachers Observed using 21 st Century Tools

26 From Teacher Self-Assessment % of Class Period Spent… Students using 21 st Century tools taught in training  23.4% Using Smartboards  51.8% Students using computers  18.1% Students using graphing calculators  36.1%

27 Goal Met? Partially Met More than 90% teachers using 21 st century tools Unclear whether more than 55% of the time are the teachers using the tools

28 PD Goal #2 At the conclusion of the project, 85% of participating teachers will use instructional strategies that engage students in higher order thinking skills 60% of the time.

29 Data Collected State Teacher Technology Survey Teacher Self-Assessment for each Wednesday in the months of October, January, and March Grant Coach Observations

30 How Familiar are You with 21 st Century Skills Indicator Used: 1(not at all familiar) – 5 (very familiar)

31 % Class Time Spent Collecting, Organizing, and Analyzing Information and Data Indicator: 1 (20% or less) 2(21%-40%) 3(41%-60%) 4(61%-80%) 5(81%-or more)

32 % Class Time Spent Evaluating and/or Defending Ideas or Views (20% or less) 2(21%-40%) 3(41%-60%) 4(61%-80%) 5(81%-or more)

33 % Class Time Spent Solving Real World Problems (20% or less) 2(21%-40%) 3(41%-60%) 4(61%-80%) 5(81%-or more)

34 Number of Teachers using 21 st Century and Higher Order Thinking Skills 34 Teachers Reporting (one teacher did not report) 29 of 34 Teachers Report Using 21 st Century Skills/Higher Order Thinking at Least 60% of Time 85.3% using skills at least 60% of class time

35 % of Teachers using 21 st Century Skills in Their Classroom Grant Facilitator Drop-In Classroom Observations 21 st Century Skills and Higher Order Thinking Skills being used were recorded. 30 of 35 teachers were observed asking students to use these skills. 85.7% of teachers were observed asking students to use these skills.

36 Goal Met? YES!!! Requirement: (85% of teachers using Higher Order Thinking at least 60% of class time) Results: 85.3% - Teacher Self Assessment 85.7% - Grant Facilitator Observations

39 AP Physics 2010 – 60 Students2011 – 103 Students

40 AP Environmental Science 2010 – 70 Students2011 – 90 Students

41 End of the Year Journal Reflection Teachers responded to the following question – “How did you transform your classroom this year as a result of the grant training and the time you were paid for?”

42 How did I transform my classroom as a result of this grant? 74% - Mastery Learning 54% - Course Content Online 51% - Flipped Class (at least part of the time) 31% - Web2.0 Tools 9 teachers mentioned the importance of student voice and choice in their learning.

43 “I have pushed myself to try new things, which has been frightening and fulfilling all at the same time! It has opened my eyes to the fact that some kids need a second chance to try and knowing that has made a HUGE difference…My students know that there will be a second chance to succeed, even if it means a little extra practice is involved.”

44 “I have changed my outlook on education thanks to this grant. I feel like my students have a better understanding of how much I want to help them succeed …I still have students that resist every effort I make to help them, but I’m not giving up on how to reach them.”

45 “I started to transform my classroom, putting more focus on learning and less emphasis on daily work. I felt that my grades were inflated due to completion assignment grades.” “I want students to stop seeing the grade as the goal but to see their learning and understanding as the primary purpose of school.”

46 “(the students) moved beyond asking, ‘What’s the answer?’ and on to better questions like, ‘How does this work?’ …and I got these questions not just from my best students but from almost all of my students.”

47 Successes Mastery Learning!!! Teachers changed the way they thought about learning vs. grading…what and when to grade. Many teachers provided students more access to content. Teachers increased their opportunities for PD by creating their own PLN

48 Challenges Technology Infrastructure Resistance to the “Flipped Classroom” The “Traditional – Industrial” model of school

49 Learning from Project Provide teachers time to be critical friends and you will produce something powerful. Teachers prefer to learn in bits and pieces rather than in large chunks. Students have been trained to view school as performance and not as a place for learning. Must change this view of school.
