Abstract要約 :

This presentation takes Moodle out of the classroom and places it in front of colleagues. Often times, Moodle is thought only in terms of students. With such a narrow view, people fluent in applying Moodle may miss an opportunity to benefit from its philosophical tenant of Social Constructivism. Until now, teacher orientations have been a director-centered, 2.5-hour meeting with little interaction to reinforce program goals and introduce curricular changes. Attendance is required for all full-time and new teachers and strongly recommended returning part-time teachers. The format has been a leader-centered, lecture format. In light of the pervasive use of flipped learning within the curriculum, it was noticed that what was being espoused within the curriculum was not being practiced nor demonstrated during orientation. A new goal was set to show in practice what flipped learning is during the meeting. Setting into action at a level where the teachers themselves can experience Social Constructivism is the new goal. To bring this about, the otherwise routine parts of the teacher orientation will be expressed in Moodle forums and quizzes so that the participants may be freed to construct knowledge for one another, share teaching ideas and collaboratively, creating new and useful teaching ideas on the day. It is hoped that when teachers are immersed as students within a flipped culture, learning will not be a one-time event, but something that will last throughout the year. Insights, experiences, and ideas from presentation participants are highly welcome.
