» Biblioteca Innovación Educativa ¿Cómo puede un solo profesor atender, de forma personalizada, a un grupo numeroso de alumnos muy diferentes? ¿Cómo ganar tiempo para acompañar el progreso de cada alumno, a costa de la parte más expositiva de la clase? ¿Qué pasaría si esa parte se grabara en vídeo para verlo en casa, como tarea, y luego se dedicara la clase al trabajo directo con los alumnos? A partir de preguntas como estas nació la “clase al revés”, que nos propone “dar la vuelta” a la enseñanza tradicional y desplazar la atención del docente al alumno y su aprendizaje. El alumno estudia en casa, a su propio ritmo, y el profesor dedica el tiempo de clase a atender dudas, generar dinámicas participativas y ofrecer a los alumnos la oportunidad de acercarse a los contenidos de la manera más acorde con su forma personal de aprender. De este modo se favorece una educación más personalizada, a la medida de las necesidades de cada alumno. Jonathan Bergmann es profesor de Ciencias en Estados Unidos. Los autores Robert J.

Helping Children Around the World to Read and Learn MindShift MindShift explores the future of learning in all its dimensions. We examine how learning is being impacted by technology, discoveries about how the brain works, poverty and inequities, social and emotional practices, assessments, digital games, design thinking and music, among many other topics. We look at how learning is evolving in the classroom and beyond.We also revisit old ideas that have come full circle in the era of the over scheduled child, such as unschooling, tinkering, playing in the woods, mindfulness, inquiry-based learning and student motivation. We report on shifts in how educators practice their craft as they apply innovative ideas to help students learn, while meeting the rigorous demands of their standards and curriculum. MindShift has a unique audience of educators, tinkerers, policy makers and life-long learners who engage in meaningful dialogue with one another on our sites. Contact the us by email.
