      One take-away : Learning has to be through engaging methods and ways. We should not limit learning in teh classroom through lazy methods of just being tradisional. We say that we are living in the modern world of the 21st century yet our classrooms remain the same. Dr Tan, thanks for being a very motivating thinker.This was what i needed.

      Integrating ICT into the curriculum may not be easy. There may be students who do not have Internet connection or computers at home. Or the school community and parents might be resistant to move away from the traditional method of teaching. However, the benefits that students and teachers can get from using ICT is worth taking the first step towards the future.

      Thanks for the great course, Dr Tan! (:

    Thank you for preparing your flipped presentations over the weekend. I have left questions and comments in your group wiki pages.

    Please ensure that you have watched at least THREE other flipped presentations before class.

    See you tomorrow at 8.30am at the MxL for our final session!

    Some reminders for next week.

    1. Update your group's wiki page with your flipped presentations and other resources.

    2. Keep your flipped presentations to 10-15 minutes.

    3. Ensure that your materials are online by 12 noon this Sat, 29 Oct.

      One clarification: The flipped presentations must be ready by this Sat.

      The TEL group assignment (what you submit via Google Docs) is due next Tue.

    Here is an example of a five-part screencast. It might give you ideas on how to do a flipped presentation.

      students learn at their own pace and they are comfortable w learning and questioning because they are equipped at home.

      Flipped classroom is a good platform for teachers to conduct lesson. It requires students to come prepared for the lesson beforehand, saving teacher's time to teach the new concept. Peer interaction is incorporated too, allowing students to teach their friends.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

      Do note that the concept and practice of flipping the classroom is not new. However, at least two things have contributed to its new found popularity: Current technology (broadband access and mobile devices) and shifts in education (e.g., unhappiness with current teaching methods, an emphasis on student-centred learning).

      The difficulties in implementation are less about tech and resources but more about mindset. The tech is getting more common and intuitive to use so that resources can be created and consumed easily.

    Good day Dr Tan, how do I include my powerpoint slides, in the case that my lesson plan has powerpoint slides involved? Thank you!

      You can submit the doc and ppt files as one zip file.
