What is flipped learning?
Flipped Learning is a form of blended learning which encompasses any use of technology to leverage the learning in a classroom. This enables the teacher to spend more time interacting with students in small groups and one-to-one settings, rather than teaching to the whole class at one time. With modern technology allowing such easy delivery and access of information, this reversed teaching model is being utilized all throughout the nation.
What is the purpose of flipped learning?
To allow more time for teachers to instruct students one on one. It allows the teacher to make the most of face-to-face time with students.
What are the benefits?
- Gives students the ability to learn at their own pace by “stopping,” “pausing,” and “rewinding” lessons as needed in order to master topics. Students have complete control of pacing which empowers them to become independent learners.
- Classroom time is spent with teachers fostering meaningful and differentiated learning experiences incorporating visual, auditory and kinesthetic activities. This engaging, interactive environment is designed to guide students into higher levels of thinking such as analyzing, evaluating and creating.
- Lesson content can be shared effortlessly with other faculty, students, parents, and the community.
- Lesson content is permanently archived for review or remediation.
- Lesson content is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Students won’t get left behind because of illness, inclement weather or even extra-curricular activities.
- A substitute teacher has easy access to all lessons and resources that the class has covered, and more importantly, is going to cover.
- Produces an overall collaborative learning environment that is student-centered.
