Flipping the Classroom: Homework in Class, Lessons at Home
Alvarez, Brenda
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v77 n8 p18-21 Apr 2012
One way to create more class time and not lose education time is to have students take notes at home and do the work in class. This article describes "flipping the classroom," a new instructional model that allows an educator to record a lesson plan on video in the same fashion it would be presented to students. The structure of the video is an overview of the lesson, the content, and ends with a summary. Educators can insert their voice, video clips, photographs, and images, as well as work out problems in their own writing within the video, which is less than 10 minutes long. Students can access the lessons on any computer or smart phone. This new instructional model also sparked an interest among parents. They now had a direct link to their child's school instruction, and it gave parents the opportunity to be actively engaged in their child's education. The flip approach holds the golden key for students because educators can control and eliminate learning obstacles, and it allows teachers to give their best presentations and share resources.
