Flipping Classrooms for Deeper Learning
Why it makes sense… Flipping helps struggling students Flipping helps students of all abilities to excel Flipping allows students to pause and rewind their teachers Flipping increases student-teacher interaction Flipping allows teachers to know their students better Flipping allows for real differentiation Flipping changes classroom management
“One of the hardest things we had to do when switching to the flipped and ultimately the flipped- mastery model was to give control of the learning over to the students.” – Jon Burgmann and Aaron sams
Flipped Learning is… A means to INCREASE interaction and personalized contact time between students and teachers. An environment where students take responsibility for their own learning. A classroom where the teacher is not the "sage on the stage", but the "guide on the side". A blending of direct instruction with constructivist learning. A classroom where students who are absent due to illness or extra-curricular activities such as athletics or field-trips, don't get left behind. A class where content is permanently archived for review or remediation. A class where all students are engaged in their learning. A place where all students can get a personalized education. the interaction and the meaningful learning activities that occur during the face-to-face time.
Flipped Learning is not… A synonym for online videos. About replacing teachers with videos. An online course. Students working without structure. Students spending the entire class staring at a computer screen. Students working in isolation.
