Happy Flipped Learning Day!!
Friday, September 6, 2013 is Flipped Learning Day. This is a day when educators around the globe commit to flip one lesson during the day in their classroom. Many Hoover High School teachers participated in Flipped Learning Day. Here are a few examples:
Ms. Butcher's Interior Design class researched design trends that were out of date and took photos from their homes of these. In class, a discussion was held about these trends in interior design.
Ms. Etheredge's class watched a video on estuaries for homework on Thursday night and then completed a lab/discussion in class.
Ms. Kehr's class researched digital footprints and then participated in a class discussion using Socrative as a back channel.

Classroom Management Tip
Have students who are very distracted by their IPADS? What I have decided to do is create a visual (attached) which I will show to my class when I want them or an individual student to get off his/her IPAD. I have used the phrase “ IPADS resting”, but found myself continually repeating it over and over, so am now resorting to visuals. Just wanted to share.

I was helping students look for free apps today for a presentation project they are working on and found Haiku Deck. You can put in key terms and it will hunt for Creative Commons images to put in a presentation even. The students who tried it thought it was really good, so I thought I'd pass it along for your feature on free apps.
Common Core by Mastery Connect
I just found an app called Common Core by Mastery Connect. It has all the common core standards by grade and subject....could be handy to carry around.
