Optimi Classroom: Professional Development: The Flipped Classroom: Classroom time redesigned
A flipped classroom is a type of blended learning that ‘flips’ the traditional classroom environment with the type of learning typically conducted as homework. The Flipped Classroom methodology ‘flips’ linear teaching structures to redesign classroom time. By ‘flipping’ said structures, more time becomes available for collaborative learning in the classroom.
With a stream of new research and technologies continuously entering the field of education, the flipped learning model is ever-changing and innovative. Successful flipped learning experiences aren’t necessarily technology-dependent, they can be practiced even with the bare classroom essentials.
Before embarking on a flipped classroom approach, it’s important that educators have a solid understanding of the balance between face-to-face interaction and independent study. This module addresses the current flipped classroom developments and its practical implications in a 21st-century classroom.
