Flipped Classroom

Jean B. Clarke

PROS AND CONS

Pros:
*Individualized learning
* Students have the ability to control their own learning. They participate in their own learning process
* Provided a student-centered classroom
*Collaboration and Cooperative Learning are strong components
*Parents can be a bigger part of their child's learning process

Cons:
* Creates a digital divide
* Not everyone has access to the same out of technology and resources at home
* A lot of work on the teachers to prepare lessons
* A LOT of screen time for students

My Classroom:

My district is not currently implementing the flipped classroom model. Although I do not teach in a flip classroom. I am doing my best to individualize learning both at home and at school with the help of technology and applications. My students participate in digital storytelling, raz-kids online reading and IXL math.
