Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: The Flipped Classroom Part 4 of my Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012 series “Flipping the classroom” is hardly new. But with all the hype surrounding both Khan Academy and MOOCs, it’s hardly surprising that the practice became incredibly popular this year. Indeed, in his 2011 TED Talk (which has been watched over 2 million times on YouTube), Salman Khan talked about the ways in which his videos are used by teachers to “flip the classroom.” It’s also become part of the argument that Coursera co-founder Daphne Koller makes about how massive open online classes or MOOCs (which, duh, is another huge ed-tech trend of 2012) will change the offline university experience. “There’s a growing amount of content out there on the Web,” says Koller, “and so the value proposition for the university is no longer simply getting their content out there. The Tools of “The Flip” There’s ShowMe, for example, which allows anyone — teachers and students — to create and share lessons via its whiteboard-like iPad app. Flipping “The Flip”

They work together or individually while Elisabeth moves between students helping them solve the equations. Flipping the traditional classroom This is the flipped classroom in action. And you don’t have to have great video recording skills to practice it. The process has countless benefits for both Elisabeth and her students.

Finding the right resource to support flipped classrooms in the UK What if traditional methods of classroom teaching and ‘homework’ were switched? Teaching professionals have constantly looked at improving ways of raising learner engagement and attainment. While some have fared better than others, it is technology that has offered the greatest scope for innovation, helping the teacher to spend more time supporting students directly rather than instructing them from the front of the class. Flipped or reversed teaching is not a new concept; it dates back to the early nineties where it was trialled in a study on Peer Instruction at Harvard University. Today, the purpose of flipped learning has not changed. The one significant change since the 1990s, however, has been the advance in sophisticated classroom resources.

The flipped classroom Flip or reverse teaching is an instructional approach that uses the power of technologies to support focused and extended student learning. In the approach developed by American teacher, Karl Fish, teachers 'teach' at night and students do 'homework' during the day.1 In the evening, flip teaching involves students in reading, watching, pausing and replaying video tutorials prepared by the teacher to develop a basic understanding of key learning concepts. Using this strategy allows classroom instructional time to be focused and targeted to students' needs and prior knowledge. The flipped classroom strategy assumes shared responsibility for student learning.
