Flipped Classrooms: Let’s Change the Discussion

Since Sal Khan’s 2011 TED Talk, the Khan Academy has been nearly synonymous with “flipped classrooms.” This is because since then, Khan Academy has been promoted by the Gates Foundation as well as major media outlets like CNN and CBS. But, what the media and outsiders (non-educators) fail to recognize is that Khan Academy is “just a tool” and not a methodology or pedagogy on its own.

TED: Poised to be the Biggest Brand in Education May 20, 2012 10:01 am

TED: Poised to be the Biggest Brand in Education

If you were to walk up on the street and ask the average Joe the Plumber what they thought when you said the word “education,” what would they tell you? “Unions.” “Teacher strikes. “Budgets.” If you were to ask them the same question about what was education’s biggest brand, they might say…Pearson? Or Houghton Mifflin. (“who?”) That’s one of education’s inherent problems. Education is not associated with a brand, per se. It’s associated with…dreck. Nobody in the general public gives […]

EdGamer 47: Is Khan Academy a Monday Solution? April 7, 2012 6:00 pm

EdGamer 47: Is Khan Academy a Monday Solution?

Sylvia Martinez, president of Generation YES, is our guest this week and she helps us answer an important question. Is Khan Academy a Monday solution?

“This is the Monday… Someday problem – the fact that even if a teacher changes everything in their classroom, nothing else in the system will change. How can one argue for a long term (Someday) overhaul of math curriculum, pedagogy and assessment when you know even if it does change, it’s going to be long time from now, and you have kids coming in on Monday who need to pass a test on Friday that will depend on them memorizing a bunch of facts and skills? What good does it do to fight when the system not only doesn’t care, but will slap you down for it.”

We discuss this issue, gamification, and explore different aspects of constructivist learning. We learned a lot and you will too in this week’s EdGamer!
