Program

RESCOM APS logo

The overall theme is: Reaching for the global standard

The conference program will be mapped to the AALAS (Academy of Active Learning Arts and Sciences) Global Standards; General Standards.

The General Standards are a Flipped Learning roadmap to help educators reach every student in every class every day. These standards save time and support effective implementation of global best practices while avoiding typical mistakes. They are organized into eleven domains for clarity. You can read more about the standards @ http://aalasinternational.org/aalas-general-standards/

Prior to attending RESCON (a blended learning event) delegates will receive a 90 day subscription to an online training course, developed by Jon Bergmann. You can choose from:

  1. Flipped Learning 3.0 - Level 1 Certification
  2. Flipped Learning 3.0 - Level 2 Certification
  3. Flipped Learning 3.0 – Differentiation Certification
  4. Flipped Learning 3.0 - Lesson Planning Specialist

Friday 18 October: Cohorts

During this day you will attend two keynote presentations and work in a Cohort for 3.5 hours where you will delve deeply into practical, hands-on activities.

In each Cohort you will work with the Facilitator across a number of session times to create hands-on, practical resources to take back to school and use immediately.

Cohort choices will revolve around the Global Standard of Individual Space Mastery, which are:


Individual Space Mastery

  • Make sure pre-class media are short
  • Make sure pre-class media are intuitive
  • Make sure pre-class media contain the big idea
  • Hold students accountable for pre-class work
  • Use lower levels of Bloom's Taxonomy (remembering, understanding)
  • Strategically choose an appropriate medium for the pre-class media (text, annotated whiteboard video, screencast, plain video)
  • Focus on what you want to achieve in the group space when creating the individual space pre-work
  • Ensure there is a strong link between pre-class media and what happens in the classroom
  • Learn how to create flipped videos and other flipped media using the tools at your disposal
  • Ensure that videos include an appropriate mix of text, pictures, discussions between people, short integrated films, the instructor writing, narration
  • Make sure longer pre-class media are chunked into smaller pieces
  • Teach students how to interact with the pre-class media including taking notes and preparing questions for class
  • Introduce pre-class media with a prior knowledge question to activate student thinking
  • Include practical concrete activities that students can engage in during or after the pre-class media and tasks
  • Make sure pre-class tasks are meaningful and hook student interest
  • Ensure there are questions to test understanding of concepts in the pre-class media
  • Use information from students’ completion of pre-class tasks to inform instruction
  • Consider legal aspects in relation to the student's right to privacy and personal data in accordance with the laws of each country

Saturday 19 October: Workshops

During this day you will attend two keynote presentations and select from a range of break-out workshops to attend.

Workshop choices will revolve around the Global Standard of Group Space Mastery, which are:


Group Space Mastery

  • Use higher levels of Bloom´s Taxonomy (applying, analyzing, evaluating, creating)
  • Establish clear expectations for student responsibilities during class time
  • Include practice activities at differing levels to ensure all students have materials to work from that are just above their current ability
  • Use a variety of active learning strategies in the group space such as Project Based Learning, Inquiry, Mastery, Genius Hour, and Peer Instruction
  • Model group space activities for students before starting the activity
  • Never lecture or explain the videos in classroom for those who did not do the pre-class media
  • Set up student-centered activities that encourage students to summarize the content of the pre-class media
  • Include activities that encourage students to create their own content
  • Require reflection at the end of each lesson
  • Be willing to fail at new group space activities and try again
  • Provide differentiation within the group space (tasks, outcomes, support, and resources)
  • Promote collaborative and group work
  • Use both digital and analog tools to foster students’ in-class work
