Flipping your classroom requires a shift in traditional thinking about your role as a teacher and the design of your lessons. One of the major shifts in thinking is the growing importance of student-to-student interaction, while the teacher becomes more of a guide or facilitator in the learning process. By looking at a backwards design and SMART goals, you will be able to create specific learning objectives, meaningful formative and summative assessments, and engaging technology-based lessons for successful flipped teaching.
Introduce the SMART model for objective writing
Identify the difference between good and vague learning objectives
Demonstrate an understanding of having order (mapping) to the learning objectives
Write good, measurable learning objectives to incorporate into their flipped lesson on Sophia.org
This lesson will discuss the paradigm shift that must occur in the teaching and delivery of flipped classroom lessons. You will be introduced to the first step of the Backwards Design lesson model, which will lead you to learning about and practicing writing SMART lesson objectives to add to the flipped lesson you are creating on Sophia.org.

This short video lesson will show you how to create a new tutorial on Sophia.org and add learning objectives to your tutorial.
1. Have you considered how your teaching and delivery of lessons will shift due to the Flipped Classroom?
2. Have you written your SMART objectives for your first flipped lesson on Sophia.org?

I'm softly flipping my class. I'm posting videos and articles to be read for the next day, and about 70% of the kids are staying with me, which means in class they're more deeply engaged in the active practice I have planned..... But our board is really pushing three part lessons and inquiry based learning, so I'm having trouble flipping a if chunk of stuff...
My teaching and delivery of the lesson will be much different because I will be able to stay on track and not spend additional time with the main lesson portion but will be able to use that wasted time in a more productive manner.
I teach third grade reading and writing so I am going to write SMART objectives for the teaching of non-fiction text features.
I'm thinking of flipping a few lessons on presentational skills. I work in higher education in the Netherlands. I'd like to flip a lesson on getting the public's attention and one on using media. I could use some help on specifying my objective for lesson 1. What would you like future business economists to know about getting the public's attention after lesson 1? I have jotted down this:
After this lesson students will be able to start a presentation that will get the public's attention by:
1. using their own experience
2. using the morning news
But now I'm stuck on ideas. Help? Anyone?
I ran my classes flipped last year using SMART notebook software and a local server to deliver content. My biggest challenge was student buy in. This year I am going to start out with a tutorial about the flipped classroom for both students and parents to complete. I am going to start constructing it by writing my objectives right now :)
