Flipped classrooms are becoming more and more common, both for in-person classes and in online learning settings. It’s a great way to shake things up, bring more personalized attention to your classroom, and put some of your technology to use. Flipped classrooms are one of the more popular trends we’ve seen since Edudemic was created, and it is certainly one of the most long- lasting. Other things have come and gone in the past few years, but flipped classrooms are getting even more and more popular.
If you’re new to flipped classrooms or have known about the concept for awhile but haven’t made the plunge, the handy infographic below takes a look at some of the basics of flipped classrooms: what are some of the advantages, why and how they work, and how both teachers and students are responding to the flipped classroom model.
Flipping the classroom involves moving the lecture out of class – generally via the use of a video lecture that students watch at home on their own time.
Thus, teachers have class time to work on activities, problems, workshops, labs, and provide students with individual attention.
Besides the fact that teachers’ classroom time seems better spent helping students interactively rather than lecturing at them, there are a number of outcomes that make the flipped classroom a great idea.
