We study not by listening, but by doing. That’s why children get bored at class. They want to create, but they have to listen. Passive listening makes you distracted. Especially, when you don’t know why you need this information. We fulfill tasks at home, alone, while this process needs communication and society.
So the FLIPPED CLASSROOM appeared.
We have already discussed blended learning - an unconventional approach to learning - in the previous article.
Today we’ll speak about flipping! But not your homework and lecture.
No more lies about FLIPPED CLASSROOM
Why doesn't everyone use this model? Many do not know how it really works.
The flipped classroom inverts the traditional learning experience.
It is organized to make the classroom an active learning environment, to enable students to learn at their own pace, to give the instructor more time to teach each student individually, rather than the class as a whole.
- Lectures are shared outside of class time for individual review as homework.
- Classroom time is reserved for class discussion and interactive projects.
Would you like to study in such a class?
A flipped classroom model involves a lot of work by students outside of class. And a teacher needs to show what they free class time for. Students can review lecture materials in the time and place that works best for their needs. And during class feel prepared and ready to participate in interactive learning activities.
Classroom time benefits from having a teacher and fellow students nearby for problem-solving and collaboration.
Is FLIPPED CLASSROOM worth the time demanded?
Here we have 5 reasons:
- Flipping allows students to learn at their own pace
2.Flipped learning is customized, active and engaging
Group problem-solving, student presentations, and whole-group discussions allow students to learn through experience, test their comprehension, apply their knowledge, and absorb the content.
3.Flipped lecture videos help students review for exams and master the content
When pre-class materials are made available, students can go back and review those resources to better prepare for tests and exams.
4.Flipped content can be richer through curation and continuous improvement
Teachers can assign films, games, and readings, using short videos they record to tie it all together, collaborate with other instructors and share material, improve specific parts of lecture content by reviewing analytics, video comments
5.Students in flipped classrooms may show better learning outcomes
Students engage in self-paced learning, as well as think critically and collaborate with classmates with their instructors close at hand.
