Let's Flip Our Classroom
21st Century Approach to Learning
School has changed a lot since we were young, but so has the learners and the environment that surrounds them. As a teacher, I am always looking for ways to optimize student learning. Lately, I have been doing a lot of research on a concept called a 'Flipped Classroom'. I basic idea behind this concept is that the lesson is videotaped and posted for student to watch at home or where ever they have access to the internet. This frees up more time in the classroom for us to work together in a more collaborative and meaning full way. I have created this online poster to give you more insight into this concept. Watch the video below that helped inspire me to 'Flip' our classroom.
- Time will be alloted at breaks and before and after school to watch lessons
- Local libraries will be contacted and computers will be booked to support these learners
- Lessons can be transferred to DVD or other formats
- We will work on finding affordable computers or devices that families may purchase
