What is a flipped classroom by Jayne Stigger @fossa99

The Flipped Classroom1. Teachers record lectures on video and post them online, rather than lecturing in class time. 2. Students watch the videos as homework. 3. The classroom is then all about active work and discussion of the videos.

Benefits: - The focus of class time is switched to interaction and giving the teacher a chance to offer more attention to individuals or groups who need it most. - Students can learn at their own pace – the video lecture can be paused for note taking and skipped back to repeat sections if needed. - Lessons are delivered students even if they are absent due to illness, holidays etc. - Collaborative learning can be achieved during classtime, as the lecture part has been completed at home. - Parental engagement is easier as much of the lesson is delivered at home.
