The sheer amount of variety — everything from teaching styles, information resources, student interaction, and more is tailored to the needs of the coursework. Many of the examples EducationDrive shares illustrate unique models of how a teacher can invert their class.

The Standard Inverted Classroom: Students are assigned the “homework” of watching video lectures and reading any materials relevant to the next day’s class.

In this post we'll look at tools for doing both. Developing flipped lessons from scratch with your own videos. The benefit of creating your own videos is that you can tailor them to exactly match your curriculum.

We’ve got face to face models, labs, rotations, online-only, self-blend, and of course, flipped. While there are numerous ways to implement a flipped classroom, the basic components include some form of prerecorded lectures that are then followed by in-class work. Flipped classrooms are heralded for many reasons. For one thing, students can learn at their own pace when they’re watching lectures at home. Viewing recorded lessons allows students to rewind and watch content again, fast forward through previously learned material, and pause and reflect on new material. Students who watch lessons at home, then come to class prepared to do creative work. Sounds amazing, right? Student Engagement in a Flipped Classroom.

Student Engagement in a Flipped Classroom

The Flipped Classroom model allows every student to learn at their own pace, with the rewind button of online content being used frequently as students navigate digital courses. Combined with the own-place, own-time nature of eLearning, this means students now consume content in a very asynchronous manner. How do we know which students have completed their lesson and to what extent they have understood it? When classroom content which was previously consumed in a social context is now consumed in relative isolation at home, how do teachers get the information they need to teach effectively?

Kick-start learning by giving students a lecture ‘trailer’ You can picture the scene.

Kick-start learning by giving students a lecture ‘trailer’

It’s a nine o’clock Monday morning lecture – hooray! You’ve got about 200 first-year undergraduates in a lecture theatre, and most of them, except for the handful of eager beavers in the front row, were probably lying drowsily in bed as little as 13 minutes ago; some of them have actually brought their breakfast into the room. This is not a propitious beginning for an inspiring learning experience. How do you grab their attention and get them fully engaged? Most classroom-themed films normally depict a plucky, streetwise teacher who sassily grabs their students’ attention by clawing the nearest blackboard, creating an ear-rending noise.

Micro-Flip Your Class to Help Reinvent the Lecture

These approaches range from the standard inverted classroom – where students watch a lecture prior to class and use the lecture time to cover the material in greater depth – to the ‘flipping the teacher’ concept where students create their own responses to the material they’ve watched in advance and ‘lecture’ the lecturer and their fellow classmates during the live class. As classroom flipping becomes increasingly commonplace, newer flipped methodologies are starting to emerge. One of the more recent concepts to begin cropping up known as “micro-flipping.” So just how does micro-flipping work? The short answer — in an emerging field of practice, this term (much like the term ‘flipped classroom’ itself!) For others, micro-flipping relates more to the way in which material is delivered in the live session itself. Flipped Learning.
