Students as Creators of Content

The old adage says that in order to really learn something, you need to be able to teach it.  When I first started teaching in the 80’s (was it that long ago),  I realize the truth of that statement.  I was teaching earth science in an inner city middle school and trying to just keep ahead of my students.  My background was in Chemistry and Physics and I had to teach what I didn’t really know.  I quickly learned the content so that I could teach my students.  Unfortunately, though, I did not see as much value in my own students becoming the teachers.

Fast forward to 2012 and I am more convinced that we need our students to be creators of their own content.  Two weeks ago, I had the chance to help out one of our teachers as she worked with some 4th graders on math.  Instead of “teaching” the students, she had each student design a lesson they could teach to the world.  They designed their presentation and used a screen capture program (Camtasia Studio) to record their session.  We then posted the video to youtube and now these 10 year olds are teaching the world math lessons.  It has been motivating for these students to see how many people watch their videos.  It has also helped them to understand the topic that they presented on. 

Samples of the videos are below:  If you have the time, the students would love to hear your reactions to their videos.

      Flipped instruction is an ivartctate concepta0 because of the in-class time that is freed to work through concept application and discussion. One of the criticisms of this teaching tool is that students receive knowledge in a passive state by watching video.

    Dear Students,
    Your videos are excellent!  I'm going to have my student teachers look at them.  I think they are better than some of the work they've done. Yours will challenge them to do better and to be better teachers!

  4. [...] Students as Creators of Content | Flipped Learning provides a simple read as the the benefits of students as the creators of their own content – in essence the creators of their own learning. Meaning – we no longer need to rely on the teacher to “know it all”. The classroom can grow together. [...]
