What’s flipped learning?
Flipped learning is a pedagogical strategy whereby the conventional method of classroom-based learning is ‘flipped’, so that students are given the learning material before class, with classroom time then being used to deepen understanding through discussion with peers and problem-solving activities led by the teacher.
Why is it important?
Using ‘flipped learning’ in your teaching practice ensures that all students have a basic understanding of a topic before they enter your classroom, this means that curriculum time can be used to deepen learning and develop higher-level cognitive skills.
What is it good for?
Coronavirus outbreaks….but originally designed for homework! If you struggle to think of meaningful homeworks that are actually beneficial to both you and the students, then flipped learning is what you need! The resources are interactive, with videos and images. They embed core knowledge that can be discussed and built upon during the main lesson. No marking, no more pointless homework activities, just useful stuff that ensures your actual lesson time can be well spent.
