What Flipping Enables Students to do Students can pause and rewind and re-watch lessons, truly learning at their own pace. Students can access the content for their classes anytime, anywhere, on any device. Students don’t have to worry about getting behind when they are gone. Students become active learners and self-reflective, knowing when they need to rewind or pause the material to make sure they understand. Students can review material from the course at any time during the year and receive the same instruction they received the first time.
Enables Students (Cont.) Students who are proficient can work ahead on lessons and challenge themselves. Students can work in groups and with the teacher to collaborate and make meaning of the content delivered via video. Students can take charge and be in full control of their learning.
The Idea in Action Highland Village Elementary School Allen High School Stonebridge Elementary School Woodland Park High School Bullis School East Grand Rapids High School Life School Algonquin College Arapahoe High School St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School Prairie South High School Willis Junior High School
Final Thoughts… REMEMBER: This is a work in progress. Increasing the 1:1 time. Students need to be transitioned. BOTTOM LINE: It’s not always the right instructional choice You don’ t have to fully flip your classroom. Don’t look at flipping as a way to get more material covered. Flipping can work in any subject area!
“With all this…. …..Remembering that the ‘Flipped Classroom’ is a work in progress and using this ideology has the ultimate goal of increasing student understanding and ownership of the content. This may look a little different in every class, this may look a little different every year…but I will constantly be striving to find ways to help support my students in their learning and help them to develop into reflective, responsible, and self-directed learners!” - Crystal Kirch
