Students favour online technology in 'flipped' classroom models

Photo: Kate Geraghty School's in but dad ran over the iPad As school kicks off for another year, an increasing number of teachers are ditching traditional teaching models for "flipped" classroom programs, which rely on engagement with online learning content at home. In a "flipped" class structure, students complete the traditional aspects of schoolwork at home through online technologies such as videos, podcasts and interactive forums.

The students then head to school for more discussion-based, university-style lessons. Rachel Lilley, director of teaching and innovation at Regents Park Christian School, frequently uses the flipped learning method for various subjects, including maths, science, history and music. Her students are often asked to watch YouTube videos or Mrs Lilley's own video tutorials, and complete exercises on free education site Khan Academy at home to understand core concepts before class.

English as a Lingua Franca - What is ELF?

We include as potential ELF users both those who speak English as an additional language and those who speak English (in any of its social, regional and national varieties) as their main language. So, if you are speaking English with another student who speaks English as an additional language, whether or not English is your main language, you are both using ELF (VOICE/FAQ 2009). ELF has been studied by linguists interested in how its grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation is different from other varieties of English (Seidlhofer 2005).

If you have grown up speaking English, shouldn't ELF be easy? A number of linguists have suggested that this isn't necessarily the case (Graddol 2006, Rajagopalan 2004, Smith 1983).

The Next Revolution In School Tech: Bring Your Own Device

Instead of being engrossed in the lesson, the assumption is pupils will be unable to resist the lure of texting, watching videos or playing games. But the next revolution in school tech is turning this attitude on its head, as students are being encouraged not only to bring their mobiles into schoolbut to use them in the lesson, in an approach dubbed bring your own device (BYOD). While BYOD already has some traction in schools in the U.S., as well as in a growing number of workplaces, it has yet to infiltrate many schools in the U.K. But although the number of schools going down this route is still small, experts predict it may soon become the norm, in response to both the ubiquity of personal devices and the cost of updating hardware to keep pace with technological advances.
