The Flipped Classroom: Pro and Con

The Flipped Classroom: Pro and Con
In 2012, I attended the ISTE conference in San Diego, CA. While I was only there for about 36 hours, it was easy for me to pick up on one of the hottest topics for the three-day event. The "flipped classroom" was being discussed in social lounges, in conference sessions, on the exhibit floor, on the hashtag and even at dinner. People wanted to know what it was, what it wasn't, how it's done and why it works. Others wanted to sing its praises and often included a vignette about how it works in their classroom and how it transformed learning for their students. Still others railed that the model is nothing transformative at all and that it still emphasizes sage-on-the-stage direct instruction rather than student-centered learning. What It Is The authors go on to explain that the model is a mixture of direct instruction and constructivism, that it makes it easier for students who may have missed class to keep up because they can watch the videos at any time. What It Isn't Why It Works

Peer Instruction One problem with conventional teaching lies in the presentation of the material. Frequently, it comes straight out of textbooks and/or lecture notes, giving students little incentive to attend class. That the traditional presentation is nearly always delivered as a monologue in front of a passive audience compounds the problem. Only exceptional lecturers are capable of holding students' attention for an entire lecture period. It is even more difficult to provide adequate opportunity for students to critically think through the arguments being developed. Flipped Classroom – The Movie The Flipped Classroom got a lot of attention in the media during 2013, and this shows no sign of abating as we move into 2014. And why shouldn’t it? When I work with teachers and introduce them to the concept of flipped instruction, most of them quickly realize that it just makes sense. This form of blended learning has a lot to offer the student and teacher, and once educators realize they don’t need to go “all in” all at once to use flipped teaching techniques, they get inspired to try it! I’ve been having some fun learning iMovie lately, inspired by the awesome student created content I saw at the November Teaching and Learning with the iPad Conference.

Mark Frydenberg: The Flipped Classroom: It's Got to Be Done Right As screen-savvy, digital-native Millenials reach college, a dynamic new teaching method is rising across America: the flipped classroom. The premise of a flipped classroom is simple: Instead of lecturing in class and giving homework at home, flip it: give the lectures at home, and do the homework in class.

With help from the Internet, word grew of the flipped classroom.

The Flipped Classroom: A Course Redesign to Foster Learning... : Academic Medicine In recent years, colleges and universities in the United States have faced considerable scrutiny for their apparent failure to adequately educate students. Studies suggest that a significant portion of students are not learning the critical thinking, written communication, and complex reasoning skills thought to be at the core of higher education.1 In addition, college graduates with smaller gains in critical thinking skills have higher unemployment rates, report lower lifestyle satisfaction, and amass higher credit card debt than their more accomplished peers.2 Ongoing concerns about the quality of higher education have prompted numerous calls for reform,1,3,4 drawing attention to the need to transform traditional curricula to better prepare students for success in today’s global economy. A growing body of literature consistently points to the need to rethink what is taking place in the classroom. Most important, the flipped classroom model is student-centered. Course Redesign
