Bring the Outside In! • In this presentation you will learn about a new course developed at Vincennes University that is flipped, collaborative, in the cloud(as much as possible), and fun! – How To: • Create a learning environment where students are challenged as they will be on the job. • Use tech tools to help transform classrooms into “learning by working” environments. • Engage students by bringing more of the outside world into the classroom. • 200 level course - Managing Business with Computers
Bring the Outside In! • Terminology- – “in” = inside the classroom – “outside” = everywhere else outside the classroom
Bring the Outside In! • Outside, out and Inside, in – 1.) Sometimes we want to keep what’s outside of the classroom out: social media-twitter, instagram, Facebook, YouTube, multitasking, megatasking… • We do this because we think it is distracting!
Bring the Outside In! • Outside, out and Inside, in – 2.) Other times we don’t know what is out there… –Or, it can be a little scary out there!
BRING THE OUTSIDE IN! This forces us to…
Bring the Outside In! • Ask students to turn it off… – Expect students to turn all the distractions off when they come into the classroom. – Expect students to learn in a way that is foreign to them.
Bring the Outside In! • Classroom Rules: – No Talking! – Be Consistent – Read a Chapter, Complete end of Chapter Questions. – Be Bored – Listen to me Lecture in class. – Be Predictable – Week 15 course, 15 lectures covered. – !
Bring the Outside In! • We have to bring the outside in because: – 1.) Our students live out there! – 2.) Our students have become accustom to learning in this outside world environment. – 3.) Out there is where our students will be working some day. – 4. There is some awesome “stuff” out there!
