Reaching More Learners Through a Flipped Learning

current status
Current Status
  • We face a challenge of teaching to the middle without challenging learners at either ends of the spectrum
  • Great Diversity among Learners – interest; cognitive abilities; preferences; developmental levels
  • Large class size
  • Many disengaged learners
what s a flipped learning experience
What’s aFlipped Learning Experience?
  • Learners are first exposed to new material / knowledge prior to class using videos of lectures, reading assignments on handouts for example.
  • Valuable class time is then used to engage learners in assimilating the content being presented, perhaps through problem-solving, discussion, or debates.

Flipped Classroom

teacher s perspective on flipped learning
Teacher’s Perspective on Flipped Learning
  • "[In the current model], one student goes home to educated parents who can help him with his homework, while another student goes home and gets no help,“
  • "In the flipped model, both of those kids come back to the classroom after receiving the content, and now all of the help with the homework is given by the expert in the field."

When using the flipped classroom, instructors allow students to investigate the concepts introduced during the video lecture in the way that makes them comfortable- for example group work or independent reading, while focusing on gaining content knowledge (Lage, Platt and Treglia, 2000).

Theoretical Framework

The Science Of Learning, two of which help explain the success of the flipped classroom.

Bransford and colleagues assert that

“To develop competence in an area of inquiry, students must: a) have a deep foundation of factual knowledge, b) understand facts and ideas in the context of a conceptual framework, and c) organize knowledge in ways that facilitate retrieval and application” (p. 16).

Theoretical Framework

By providing an opportunity for students to use their new factual knowledge while they have access to immediate feedback from peers and the instructor, the flipped classroom helps students learn to correct misconceptions and organize their new knowledge such that it is more accessible for future use. Furthermore, the immediate feedback that occurs in the flipped classroom also helps students recognize and think about their own growing understanding

Although students’ thinking about their own learning is not an inherent part of the flipped classroom, the higher cognitive functions associated with class activities, accompanied by the ongoing peer/instructor interaction that typically accompanies them, can readily lead to the metacognition associated with deep learning.

Educational Technology
  • Capture key content – access their own content at their convenience – LEARNER CONTROL
  • Able to Pause/ rewind/ Replay – Learner Control
  • Present Learning materials in a variety of formats
  • Multisensory
  • Excellent for Reviewing information at Assessment Time
key elements of the flipped classroom
Key Elements of the Flipped Classroom
  • Provide an opportunity for students to gain first exposure prior to class.
  • Provide an incentive for students to prepare for class. Task associated with points
  • Provide a mechanism to assess student understanding.
  • Provide in-class activities that focus on higher level cognitive activities.

Flexible Environment

  • Educators can create flexible spaces in which students choose when and where they learn. Furthermore, educators who flip their classes are flexible in their expectations of student timelines for learning and in their assessments of student learning.

Learning Culture

  • The Flipped Learning model deliberately shifts instruction to a learner-centered approach where class time is dedicated to exploring topics in greater depth and creating rich learning opportunities. Students are actively involved in knowledge construction as they participate in and evaluate their learning in a manner that is personally meaningful.

Intentional Content

  • Educators continually think about how they can use the Flipped Learning model to help students develop conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. Educators use intentional content to maximize class time in order to adopt methods of student-centered, active learning strategies.

Professional Educator

  • Professional educators continually observe their students, providing them with feedback relevant in the moment and assessing their work. Professional educators are reflective in their practice, connect with each other to improve their instruction, accept constructive criticism and tolerate controlled chaos in their classrooms.

thinking in the flipped classroom
Thinking in the Flipped Classroom
  • Outside of class students are engaged in lower levels of cognitive work (gaining knowledge and comprehension)
  • Inside of the class they are focused on higher forms of cognitive work (application, analysis, synthesis, and/or evaluation) as they are supported by their peers and teacher.

benefits of flipping your classroom
Benefits of Flipping Your Classroom
  • Provides opportunity for differentiated learning
  • Students become independent learners
  • Promotes Active Learning- focused on developing higher order skills
  • Promotes peer interaction and collaboration
  • Individuals interact with content prior to class time
  • Learners get an opportunity for individualized attention
  • Learning becomes more prominent compared to teaching
  • Increased efficiency - maximizing class time

Time becomes available for students to collaborate with peers on projects, engage

  • more deeply with content, practice skills, and receive feedback on their progress. Teachers can devote
  • more time to coaching their students, helping them develop procedural fluency if needed, and inspiring and
  • assisting them with challenging projects that give them greater control over their own learning.
arguments against flipping
Arguments Against Flipping
  • Too much homework –
  • Lectures on video are monotonous
  • Not all students have access to technology outside of school
  • Not all students will complete their activity before class

  • Experiential Engagement: The Activity
  • Concept Exploration: The What
  • Meaning Making: The So What
  • Demonstration: The Now What

Experiential Exercise
  • Hands-on Activity that engages the student
  • They are engaged in making connections between their experience and creating meaning
  • Interest heightens because of experience – Desire to learn more
  • Content rich videos – Khan Academy; Teacher tube etc

assessment in a flipped classroom
Assessment in a Flipped Classroom
  •  online quizzes to worksheets to short writing assignments, but in each case the task provided an incentive for students to come to class prepared by speaking the common language of undergraduates: points. In many cases, grading for completion rather than effort can be sufficient, particularly if class activities will provide students with the kind of feedback that grading for accuracy usually provides. 
deciding which lesson to flip
Deciding Which Lesson to Flip
  • First, teachers should choose a topic that can be explained in 15 minutes or less.
  • The flipped classroom approach works best with topics that students can understand relatively well on their own.
  • Teachers can use a variety of free resources to create and upload videos of their lessons, or they can turn to free, existing videos that explain their chosen topic.

  • The teacher must have a good grasp of the content
  • Must understand his/her audience – their needs and preferences
  • Must be able to make connections – relevance
