Flipping the Classroom
A popular and enduring trend in the education world is flipping the classroom. In this model, the teacher creates videos covering content that would normally be taught in class. Students watch the videos at home on their own time and come to class the next day prepared to dive deeper into the topic. Class time is then spent on applying knowledge, working on projects, personalized learning work, and so on.
Overall, teachers gain the benefit of more time to do more engaging activities with students than covering content. There is also a variation known as the ''in-class flip,'' which involves showing the video content in class at one station that students rotate through. While this version doesn't necessarily free up class time, it does give teachers more opportunity to differentiate learning. For example, one station could cover past material for students who still need help.
Evidence indicates that the flipped classroom model can have a significant impact on student engagement and performance. In a 2014 survey of 2,358 teachers, 90% of teachers saw a positive change in student engagement after flipping their classroom. Further, 71% stated that their students' grades improved as well.
