I create videos using an experimental flipped classroom approach which incorporates Peer Instruction to contribute to a new format I call the WRX (Watch, Read, eXplain). I teach Science in NSW high schools. My flipped videos are accessible on my YouTube channel.
I teach in a large High School in metropolitan Adelaide and I’ve been flipping my senior science classes since 2015. I’ve created a range of video and Flipped Learning resources covering year 8 Australian Curriculum Maths, SACE Year 11 Biology, and SACE Year 11 and 12 Chemistry. I’m passionate about Flipped Learning methodology and Flipped Feedback, where students receive feedback on their work through short videos. I present at state and national conferences on different techniques of making how to use video resources in the classroom to assist students in their learning. My flipped videos are accessible on the "MrWardScience" YouTube channel.
