Reflection: Routines and Procedures Flipping for Scientific Processes (Day 2) - Section 3: Explore


The flipped notes process can be both exciting and intimidating for students.  The students enjoy the idea of using technology, but many times they need explicit instructions on how to use the computers and the online tools necessary for taking flipped notes.  For instance, prior to this year, a majority of my students had never used Chromebooks, so I spent time reviewing some of the features of the Chromebooks with the students.  It was also necessary to explain to the students how to correctly plug their headsets into the Chromebooks in order to hear the video.  While these may seem like simple tasks, spending class time to review these items is well worth it and will save class time in the future.  It was also important to spend time on two consecutive days reviewing the unit information sheet and the process of planning ahead in order to adhere to deadlines.  The concept of taking Cornell notes was also new to my students.  The students have had experience with taking notes in class, but were not familiar with the Cornell format.  Spending time to review the format and make sure that students correctly followed it was helpful in ensuring that they would have a useful example to follow for future note sets.  The most important reasons for taking two days to introduce students to flipped notes was to build their confidence and trust.  I frequently checked in with each student to make sure he/she understood and was comfortable with the process.  This also provided me with the opportunity to build rapport with the students.
