Flipped Classrooms
I have been using a flipped classroom this school year. As a middle school teacher, I have loved the function. I can post attachments (worksheets, etc.), assign quizzes, have the site post quizzes according to the standards I request, or post homework and discussion board topics. Additionally, the quizzes are graded and broken down as advanced, proficient, basic, and below basic for each standard tested. The names and grades are submitted via a report to the teacher. I can post videos or podcasts explaining, etc. This is a great resource. The question is can I make it a requirement for all students as they have the technology to use this resource?

In my opinion, I wouldn't use this as a requirement but as a resource. I would introduce it to the parents through a note home, and I would explain how this is a source that can deepen their understanding of standards within the classroom as well as how technology plays such a huge role in society. Since there will be students who do not have access to this at home and there will be students whose parents do not take them to the local library to use the internet, I would set up a way for these students to use it at school so that they also have access to this resource.

If I were in this situation, I would exactly do this. This is a smart way to handle this situation.

If you know for sure that they have the technology to use the resource, I think it would be ok to make it a requirement. It would be important to be flexible with students and parents and understand that issues may arise. You can create a plan for situations when technology fails or if circumstances change and a student no longer has access to the technology needed. Also, I would get the parents input about making it a requirement and see what their opinion is.

It is not a good idea to use this s requirement for students. This could be overwhelming and stressful for students with disabilities or those lower learners that do not have the support at home to complete the required task. I agree that it is a great resource. I might make this a homework requirement certain days per week. Therefore, the same consequence for not completing homework will be in place for not completing the assignment.

You could make it a requirement, but give students plenty of time to complete one task. Having to do a lot can become overwhelming.
