Get Flipped with VoiceThread

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session shows faculty how VoiceThread is being used to flip traditional lecture-based science and math courses to convey essential core concepts as well as difficult-to-comprehend, complex concepts and processes. Participants will be engaged through considering their own curriculum in a think-pair-share activity, where they will explore using VoiceThread to flip classes from being traditional residential face-to-face courses to being offered in a blended format, and consider how the use of PowerPoint and video lectures delivered through VoiceThread might improve online courses. Participants will be challenged to carefully consider the most important concepts that students need for fundamental core knowledge for a course, as well as the most complex topics that are known to be complicated topics for students to grasp, and to consider the use of VoiceThread presentations for students. This session will share how students are able to view and review content as necessary for their individual instructional needs through the use of VoiceThread. They are able to take the time to phrase questions in a clear manner, and they are able to insert the question into the presentation where it makes the most impact on their individual learning process without interrupting the flow of the presentation. Additionally, participants will see how content presented through VoiceThread can more easily contain illustrations and videos that assist in conveying complex processes and concepts.
