Congreso de Actualización y Vanguardia Educativa

Two men selling candy in the streets of downtown Zacatecas.

Keynote and Workshop

I was invited by colleagues of our Tecnológico de Monterrey en Zacatecas to share a keynote (Flipped Learning) and a three instances of a one hour workshop on Open Educational Resources. This was indeed an honour and I was also interviewed by a local newspaper (NTR Zacatecas) and that interview should appear in the Monday edition.

Update: no interview published but I found this article about the event.

Flipping, Que es Flipping?

Vamos empezando la sesión con una presentación y discusión sobre realmente que es Flipping y que no es Flipping.

Sigue un presentación sobre mi aventura personal con mis alumnos de #flipclass

Sigue con o que estoy pensando ultimamente sobre desarrollo profesional de profesores:

My Audio Feed

Podcasts are in my earbuds.

I had a request weeks ago from my colleague Ivan here on campus and I’ve been meaning to write this for months. So here goes my list of podcasts currently on my Android phone. For those interested, I have the paid version of BeyondPod. I honestly don’t remember what benefits the paid version gives but I tend to purchase apps (and services) that I use often to give support for creators.

I list the categories in the order of my playlist algorithm. News comes first since I want to hear those as close to release as feasible. If not, they would be “olds” then anyway. I list the podcasts within each category in alphabetical order as they appear on my device.

Connected and Going Native?

Connected Learning

I’m been running a form of connected courses since the January-May 2015 semester here at the Tecnológico de Monterrey. I have this tendency to throw a new power tool into my teaching toolbox every January which has been happening for about five years now.  The list of courses I have setup is growing so much that I’m struggling to keep them maintained (see Alan’s tweet about needing an updater) and really should list all of them somewhere on the landing page for kenscourses.com. You can just find the current semester courses there now, go ahead and tweak the URLs to find the past semester.

I think the tool side has matured and is leaving room for more focus on making actual connections. I want to listen more than I want to be heard and that aligns with so much I’ve been reading, discussing and hearing about lately.

August Focus

So what am I focusing on this semester?

More love.

More love for and in teaching and learning.  Amy Collier spoke so well about this in our Virtually Connecting hallway conversation (joined that day by Stephen Downes). Just last week I had a (in-the-flesh) lunch conversation with my colleague Pille here on campus and we found a connection there that institutions (through fear) want to remove so much personal communication between students and teachers when we know that students (and teachers) need personal connections that allow us to feel the confidence and have the strength to struggle at this thing we call learning which can be so messy.

More Listening.

I’m known locally and in my network as the “flipping guy”. That label is descriptive in some ways but limiting in others (like most labels). For me the key to my flipped classroom is the flipping of responsibility for the learning. I talk less and listen more while guiding my students.  I think I’ve done a good job so far but need to push myself to be sure I am listening to the students that don’t have such a strong voice. This came up in another Virtual Connecting (see a pattern?) hangout which involved our first student participant: Andrew Rikard.

More Openness

I recently discovered the HybridPod podcast and gave all eleven episodes a listen while leaving the feed on my phone for further updates. The latest episode was about the concept of Openness in the context of sexual orientation and I applaud Chris Friend and his guests for being open about how important (and scary) that can be in a classroom environment.

Their discussion led me to consider how my sharing and interaction with my students online and in person needs to come from a context of me showing my own vulnerabilities when confronted with something new, uncomfortable or scary.

Lately I have found myself hanging out online with a group of educators that frankly intimidates me (see Bonnie‘s reply below). This is a new group and I’m the new kid on the block. I don’t know the language (all of my education is in computing science, not education) but I can be aware of my own deficiencies while also being aware of my strengths.

Going Native?

When the pendulum swings from teacher focus to student focus I wonder if my diving to deep into active participation will lead to a danger of going native? We’ll find out as I try to spend more time in the habitats of the Tec student.

Thanks for People

Thanks Laura for pushing me to get a post out. You do amazing work (and intimidate the heck out of me) and I appreciate that. I love all the people that go out of their way to spend little moments of their day to help others.

Alternating paragraphs of English/Spanish here since we have a mixed audience. I invite corrections to my Spanish (or English). We plan (and always have with OpenFlip) to support work in both English and Spanish since Ken and April are native speakers of English with enough Spanish to work with teachers in both languages. Feel free to pursue this course in your language of choice or even try interacting with participants in both languages.

Párrafaros alternando aquí de inglés y español. Invito corregir mi español (o inglés). Tenemos planeado (y siempre ha sido así con OpenFlip) dar soporte en inglés y español dado que Ken y April tienen inglés como su lengua nativo con suficiente nivel en español para trabajar con maestros en los dos idiomas. Están bienvenidos en participar en el curso en cualquier de los dos idiomas o incluso dar el reto de interactuar con participantes con los dos.

Maestros Invertidos

Si, en español

Creo que es mi primer post en el blog en español, la verdad debo publicar más así. Mi idioma nativo es el inglés pero con casi 21 años en México debo hacer más esfuerzo para comunicar en español. Cierto: bienvenida correcciones sobre mi gramática en los comentarios.

Curso de Flip

Ayer viernes y hoy estoy presentando sobre aula invertida (y aprendizaje invertido) con maestras (y unos maestros) del Instituto De La Vera-Cruz como parte de un diplomado del Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Guadalajara.

Mi presentación está disponible en Haiku Deck.

Recursos

Como siempre, hablo sobre muchos recursos y herramientas y es difícil anotar las ligas para las maestras, incluyo varios aquí:

Blogging

Para escribir su blog, recomiendo usar WordPress. Tiene muchas ventajas que mencioné en el discurso como portabilidad, diseño y fácil (relativamente) para usar. Puedes hacer tu propio blog registrando en el sitio WordPress.com.

Otros opciones para investigar para su blog son Known y Blogger. Soy un gran fan de Known, es más sencillo y hay mucho más que decir sobre sistemas abiertos pero no necesariamente con este grupo. Blogger es de Google y mucha gente tiene experiencia con la plataforma. Personalmente prefiero WordPress y Known para razones distintos.

Hacer Videos

Trabajamos un poco en el salón con Camtasia (versiones para Mac y Windows). Es mi plataforma preferida por su interface simple y la habilidad de editar mis videos. No es gratis pero hay descuentos para académicos.

Otros opciones para computadora son: Screencast-o-matic y otro que estoy usando es Screencastify cual es un plugin para Google Chrome.

Hay varios apps para iPad/iPhone y Android para grabar videos. No lo ha usado mucho para otros maestros me han dicho que son fans de Explain Everything (iOS y Android) y EduCreations (iOS)

Libros

El libro original de Jon Bergmann y Aaron Sams está disponible en varios idiomas incluyendo español. El version en inglés tiene disponible los primeros tres capítulos para bajar.

Hay muchos otros libros cual ha leído yo y la verdad recomiendo a esos dos en partiicular:

Twitter y Social Media

Tengo una cuenta en Pinterest y puedes ver unas ligas sobre uso de social media en su salón de clases. Tiene pocas ligas, debo usar Pinterest un poco mas para ese fin de cultivar ligas a recursos.

Ha publicado unos entradas en mi blog sobre uso de Twitter y Facebook en mi salón. Aviso que están publicado en inglés.

Tenemos un grupo en Facebook para Flipped Learning Latin America.

Curso de OpenFlip

Ha ofrecido un curso en estilo cMooc desde hace 2 años. Es completamente en linea y grátis. Ultimamente fue de 8 semana pero lo vamos a reducir a 4 semanas. Al final del curso (si cumplen con el trabajo) voy a redactar una carta y reconocimiento para fines de pedir crédito con su trabajo como capacitación. El próximo curso empieza el 31 de mayo, para más información pueden ver la página de web de OpenFlip.

Videos que Vimos

Alumnos

Paola fue mi alumno de TC1017 en el semestre enero-may 2016.

El primer video es de Daniela y Pepe quienes fueron mis alumnos hace unos años (en solamente un curso TC1017). También estoy compartiendo una lista de otros alumnos del semestre agosto diciembre 2014.

Vimos el video con Eduardo en el salón y también viene en una lista de videos de otros alumnos.

Keith Hughes

Vimos el video de Keith Hughes (@hiphughes en Twitter). También tiene varios videos sobre “teaching” y un excelente video de como hacer #flipclass, lo incluyo abajo:

Jonathan Thomas-Palmer

Pueden ver el sitio de Jon sobre Flipping Physics, tiene muchos recursos para alumnos y maestros.

Vimos dos videos en particular, el primero para alumnos de como ver videos de #flipclass

Y otro en su series de tips sobre como hacer videos #flipclass:

Derek Muller

Vimos el siguiente video de Derek Muller (famoso por el canal de YouTube Veritasium) sobre su trabajo de doctorado en hacer videos de física para alumnos:

Recomiendo también su video “This Will Revolutionize Education”:

Twitter Chats

Hicimos una prueba con Twitter Chat usando la etiqueta de #aulainvertida.

Hay muchos chats sobre varios tópicos de educación cada día de la semana.

Cada lunes a las 7pm hora local de Guadalajara (realmente 8pm hora de nueva york y cambia con cambia de horario) tenemos el chat de #flipclass. Sigue ese etiqueta entre 7pm y 8pm para conocer gente del area.

También cada 15 días hay un chat de #mexedchat los lunes a las 8pm. Hay uno hoy 23 de mayo.

La Tarea

Si, la tarea tiene fecha limite de 31 de mayo. Deben publicar escrito y en formato de video su reflexión sobre aula invertida. Puede ser tan simple la entrega con ligas a los documents (escrito y el video) a su Dropbox o otro plataforma similar. Recomiendo altamente un intento a publicar en YouTube y su trabajo escrito en un entrada de blog.

Gracias

Siempre es un placer trabajar y aprender con otros maestras y maestros. Agradezco mucho la invitación de compartir con ustedes y espero que estamos en contacto. Me pueden encontrar aquí en mi blog, en Facebook, en Twitter, en Pinterest y por correo electrónico (kenbauer at gmail punto com).

This is an open and free course offered in the connected MOOC style, and you should realize this is not a course about “Ken teaching you” and is highly centered on your learning. A glove-tap/hat-tip to Stephen Downes, George Siemens and Dave Cormier and others for their work on the original MOOCS.

A massive thank you to the work of Alan Levine, Brian Lamb, Jim Groom and too many others to list for their inspiration that led to my using this format.

My classrooms are very student-centred whether I am working with my undergraduate students or my faculty colleagues. This is really a rough outline and I hope, expect and encourage you to push our workshop in the direction that works best for all of you.

Pre-work for Workshop

If at all possible, please ready Chapter 3 (Why You Should Flip Your Classroom) from “Flip Your Classroom” which is available for free here:
