Here are a couple things that would be helpful for you to check out prior to attending my upcoming CanFlip14 session:
1. Watch the short clip I created (embedded below or linked here) on the key theory of autonomy that I draw on in my work on student experiences of flipped classrooms. We will use this as a basis for some of our discussions around classroom practice.
If you want more details on the theory, you can see my blog post here.
2. Read Dan Meyer’s blog post on the painted cube problem (found here) and consider how cognitive autonomy is being elicited by his approach.
3. If you still have time, think about what sorts of activities you can think of using in your classroom that give room for cognitive autonomy.
I look forward to seeing you at my session! See you at CanFlip14!
