Remix Student Learning

The Flipped and Blended Classroom

Do you deal with students who don't complete their homework? Have you tried to come up with a solution for what students do when they get home and have a question?

The move to blended/flipped instruction, or using both online and face-to-face instruction, is causing a shift in the responsibilities and roles of both the teacher and the student. Combined with student generated work products, teachers have seen tremendous growth in self motivation, the quality of work and skills retention.

Quick tip: Pairing lecture video with autograded assessments helps ensure that students are prepared for the subsequent in-class activities.

  1. Facilitate engaged-learning activities in the classroom

Quick tip: Possible activities include quizzing, small-group problem solving, extensions, applications, and peer feedback.

  1. Create opportunities for student feedback

Quick tip: Use student feedback and assessment performance to calibrate your in-class activities.
