Flipped Classroom
16 nov 004sm.jpg
A typical classroom model is one in which the teacher takes on the frontal teaching and is talking most of the time. In flipped classroom model, the main idea is to reverse the common instructional approach. Delivery of content that used to occur in class is now accessed at home in the form of a visual and auditory presentation, in advance of class. Class becomes the place to work through clarifications, problems, difficult concepts and engage in 21CC skills pertaining to the lesson. Through this presentation, speakers will share their own experience of using the flipped classroom model. Participants can experience how the students engage in this type of pedagogy to facilitate teaching and learning in class.

 2017 Symposium for teaching and learning of HistoryCPDD, MOEUsing Historical Role Play to interpret Historical Evidence in the Context of Singapore’s Political Development after WWII
The teaching of the post-war period in Singapore has traditionally posed challenges to many teachers. Teachers have to grapple with unpacking a highly complex and complicated historical era for students. Through the use of historical role play, and by harnessing the historical concept of empathy, students can better understand the perspectives and context of various parties involved during that tumultuous times. The use of evidence drives the construction of this historical narrative, as students interact with and question evidence in order to investigate and re-enact the highly contested socio-political arena in the 1950s. What is unique to this lesson package is that role play is applied in a consistent and complementary manner, where students are given a character which they have to maintain for the entire series of lessons. This enables students to participate in events in the classroom, where evidence and History comes alive.

Commonwealth Secondary School Flipping for Flexibility: Raising the Bar for Learning with Technology How do we help our students prepare for a rapidly changing world? Technology affects the way we communicate, work, and live.
 
The staggering increase in the availability of technology tools has facilitated an increase in the number of teachers who are "flipping" their classrooms; that is, sending direct instruction home and reserving class time for reinforcement, practice, and extension. But flipping also presents the challenge of how to ensure active engagement and address diverse learning needs both at home and at school.
 
This session explores how to structure flipped learning experiences in order to promote student engagement and differentiation of instruction. We’ll explore opportunities to raise the bar for what’s expected, and what’s possible, for learning with technology.

Nurturing Pro-Social Behaviour in Today's Youth - 5th Character and Leadership Conference 2017 Bishan Park Secondary School Transactional Analysis (TA) For the past five years, PLMGSS has embarked on the journey of using Transactional Analysis (TA) to strengthen interactions between teachers and students, build positive relationships and address student misbehaviour. In this sharing, PLMGSS will present on the school-wide implementation of TA through leveraging on existing structures and processes. The use of TA strategies empower teachers in better management of students’ misbehaviours. The impacts of the application of TA strategies will be discussed. This includes enhancing the school’s strong caring culture, better student engagement in learning and better student behaviours such as being less disruptive and better behaved.
2017 Mrs Low Hwee Hwee Redesigning Pedagogy International Conference 2017 NIE Transactional Analysis (TA) Transactional Analysis, Positive Education and Restorative Practices are approaches that can help to equip teachers with competencies for TSR and influence the school culture positively.

These approaches:
• Activate teachers’ positive regard for their students
• Help teachers understand students better
• Provide applicable tools for teachers to build TSR

This workshop aims to provide a platform for teachers and schools to consider how they can strengthen positive TSR through the use of school-wide approaches - Transactional Analysis, Positive Education and Restorative Practices - thus building a supportive network of positive relationships in schools. This session will include sharing by 3 schools on how the approaches have affected both staff and students in the way they relate and interact with each other (TSR) and how that influence the school culture of care positively.

At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to

1.Learn how schools select an approach, and understand the factors that promote and impede school implementation of Transactional Analysis, Positive Education and Restorative Practices.

2. Learn strategies under each approach for strengthening positive TSR with students

This session will be co-presented by GB Senior Specialists and 3 schools. GB will provide the introduction and frame for the presentation giving an overview of building a caring community in schools focusing on positive TSR. This will be followed by schools’ facilitation to help participants have a “taste”of/experience the approach, highlighting how each approach has strengthened TSR and build school culture of care in their respective schools. GB will close the session with a summary of common key factors for effective school implementation of the approaches, followed by a short Q&A and reflection.
