IMG_5018Carl Condliffe is currently employed as the Head of Physical Education and Health at Rongotai College in Wellington, NZ. He has a strong interest in the use of ICT to improve learning outcomes with NZ students.

Over the last five years he has been exploring the application of flipped learning at all levels of PE and has enjoyed the success it is having on student achievement. More recently he has been considering how the concept of gamification affects student engagement and motivation in the classroom.

He is keen to network with other educators who have similar goals and a passion for technology, as well as provide a home for a range of resources he finds useful in his teaching.

    1. Greg – The flipped videos have allowed me to have a practical component in almost every lesson. Because students have already covered the content, we can repurpose class time to focus more on developing key concepts from the content in a variety of contexts.

  1. Hi there, I am looking to Flip my NCEA Level 2 Chemistry class next year. I teach at Tu Toa School up in Palmerston North. I am looking to network with other teachers/educators around New Zealand who are also ‘flipping’. I’m glad that there are so many resources out there to help develop educators learn how to apply this model. It would be great to find others in NZ though!

    1. Thanks Matthew. How far along are you in your preparation for flipping next year? If you were interested, I could come up and give you a hand for half a day once my seniors leave? Would be keen to see how Tu Toa operate (my wife worked with Yvette when she was head coach of Pulse), and could give you some feedback / tips on software for resource creation etc.. Flick me an email if you are interested: [email protected]

    2. Hi Mathew. I too teach L2 Chemistry and am new to this flipping concept but keen to try something new mainly because few of my students (who are very capable) are doing homework tasks and its taking too long to imbed new concepts.

  2. Hi Carl. I watched your video from the Future Learning conference which was very good. I’ve been trying to get a handle on flipped classrooms for a couple of weeks after a colleague gave me a basic rundown on how it works. I teach senior chemistry and are struggling to get students to commit time outside of class to learning (ie homework). So flipping sounds worth a try.
    I have a couple of questions. It appears (looking at your videos) that you are using Camstasia. Did your department budget pay for the full programme or did you get $ another way? What other screen capture tools are there to try?
    Can you send me an example of a WSQ sheet so I can get an idea on how you used it?

    HI, I have stumbled across your youtube channel and then your website. Our school has just introduced flipped classes this year. It is great to see what you have created for these lessons. Can you please tell me which app you use for your skill analysis for 3.2?

    1. Fantastic Michelle – apologies for the delayed response. I use the Coach’s Eye for a lot of my 3.2 analysis. This year for golf I used Ubdersense which allowed you to download other golf professionals swings to compare against your own.

      Feel free to flick me an email if you have any more specific questions.
