How and Why to Flip Your Classroom with VoiceThread

In this webinar, community college instructor, Michelle Pacansky-Brock, will demonstrate how she used VoiceThread to flip her lecture-based art history class. The foundation of the “flipped classroom” model is a series of mobile lectures paired with formative assessments that students complete prior to coming to class. VoiceThread is a single, easy to use tool that masterfully delivers mobile content with voice, visuals, and video and invites students to participate in engaging assessment activities. This model empowers an instructor use class time on the topics that matter to students. With passive listening taking place outside of class, students become active participants and engage in discussion, debate, and critique to foster higher order thinking skills. The mobile lectures provide the flexibility to pause, rewind, and learn in a way that meets individual needs. You’ll be surprised to learn how the students responded and the effects of the experiment on student satisfaction, success and attrition rates.
