UPO MEB - Flipped Classroom Homework (April 11th, 2014)

a) Watch the video: What if students don't watch the video? by Katie Gimbar

b) Take notes and try to answer the following questions:

 - What are some ways she ensures students interact with the material? Can you think of any additional ideas?
 - What does she do with students who have come to class and not done the homework?
 - How has this technique motivated learners in her classroom?

c) Reflect: How could you apply this technique to different learning environments?

d) Think of a question to ask your group on this technique or on what can be done with students who don't watch the videos.
