The aim of the Flipped Learning Mat is to allow students the opportunity to make effective notes while completing a piece of Flipped or Blended homework. Learning can then be brought back into the classroom as part of the Flipped model and used throughout the lesson.
Etch Sketch Drawing Task
Allows the students to draw or write practical examples that are given in the video, or any they think would best relate to the topic being covered.
SOLO Abstract Relational Links
Allows the students to note down any links the video makes to other topics taught on the syllabus or across disciplines (see Visual Link Grid #VLGrid here for a better understanding of linking the A Level syllabus together)
Twitter Tweet Q Box
Allows the students to note down a question they would like to ask the teacher or another student when they get to the lesson after watching the flipped learning video.
General Note Scribbles
Allows the students to jot down anything else they find interesting or material they think will be relevant once in the lesson. Also acts as a rough paper box to write as they watch, without thinking too much about the other tasks around the page until the video is finished.
Wordle Word Cloud
Allows the students to create a Word Cloud of key words and terms used in the video to help them identify Key Terminology that might be needed to successfully answer an exam question on the topic.
Text A Definition
Allows the student to use one of the key words, or the topic focus and come up with a summary/definition for it. The last green box can be left to teacher/peer assess the definition once back to class and correct or extend their answer if needed.
QR Code [Manual Addition]
The QR code in the middle is created using the website QRStuff.com and helps bring the #FLMat to life by making in interactive. Students can scan the QR code with a mobile device or tablet connected to the internet and be taken to the YouTube site where the video exists.
