ensuring that today’s students are well prepared to be tomorrow’s innovators, leaders and engaged citizens of the world. The Speak Up data represents the largest collection of authentic, unfiltered stakeholder input on education, technology, 21st century skills, schools of the future and science instruction. Education, business and policy leaders report use the data regularly to inform federal, state and local education programs.
“Students, teachers and administrators are increasingly interested in tapping into digital tools such as video to transform the classroom experience. From this research, it is evident that the flipped learning model is gaining the attention of educators who are interesting in improving student achievement and teacher effectiveness by leveraging digital tools to enable innovation.”
Julie Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow
Speak Up 2013 National Research Project Findings: A Second Year Review of Flipped Learning is a collaborative effort between Project Tomorrow and The Flipped Learning Network using data from the more than 403,000 K-12 students, parents, teachers, administrators and community members that participated in the 11th annual Speak Up online surveys in the Fall of 2013. For the second year in a row, specific questions were asked of students, educators and administrators on flipped learning and use of videos in the classroom. Teachers and school administrators were asked to comment on their current or planned implementation of this innovative strategy.
This new whitepaper reveals significant growth in just one year in interest and implementation of flipped classrooms and a drop in concerns about student online access. Teacher interest in professional development on making quality instructional videos and on how to best use class time in a flipped classroom remained high, but this concern among administrators has declined while some are beginning to provide this training.
