EDUCATION IS MOVEMENT FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT  that’s the purpose of education

WHAT IS A FLIPPED CLASSROOM: 

Flipped classroom model provides the content to students whenever they can/want to access them allowing them to remain stress-free as they can learn.

The flipped classroom allows students to view the videos at home and then work with their peers on projects during class time 

THE FOUR PILLARS OF F-L-I-P:

Keep in the mind four pillars of F-L-I-P as you plan

F – FLEXIBLE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

L – LEARNING CULTURE

I – INTERACTIVE CONTENT

P – PROFESSIONAL EDUCATOR

THE USAGE OF VIDEO AND AUDIO AS LEARNING TOOLS:

A flipped classroom allows students and teachers to connect and share information in the most flexible way possible with room for change as students need change and also adapt and grow over time.  Networked audio and video enable this flexibility and scalability.

Using flipped classrooms and videos as a tool for gaining knowledge otherwise presented in traditional lectures provide correlations presented in traditional lectures proved to correlate strongly with perceived increased motivation, increased learning, and effective learning. 

It is useful for students’ learning and helps them to be able to pause, rewind, and fast-forward the video. Flipped learning methods can be delivered effectively through apps for teachers and students.

ORIGIN:

Militsa Nechkina, a member of the USSR Academy of Pedagogical Sciences, first proposed the flipped classroom model in 1984. In the 1980s and 1990s, teachers in Russia tried this instructional strategy.

She named it “flipped classrooms”.

The flipped classroom was invented in 2007 by Jonathan Bergman and Aaron Sams when they began recording their classroom lectures so that students could access them at home.

EXAMPLES OF FLIPPED CLASSROOMS:

There are several ways the facilitators can flip the class utilizing textbooks that have an online component “Recording lectures ahead of class meetings using lecture capture” 

Flipped classroom works as follows: students take in the initial information at home, then attend the class and engage in a discussion, or a series of discussions, with their peers. Various studies have found that the act of debating can enhance student engagement, while also improving learning outcomes.

WHAT IS A FLIPPED-CLASSROOM APPROACH?

A pedagogical approach in which the conventional notion of classroom-based learning is inverted: students are introduced to the learning material before class with classroom time then being used to deepen understanding through discussion with peers and problem-solving activities facilitated by teachers.

A study by ‘faculty focus’ on the benefits of flipped classrooms, found a significant classroom engagement (74.9% participants) among students. In the same study, more than 80% of 

faculty reported that students are more collaborative and 76.61% said they ask more questions. 

HOW CAN TEACHERS USE FLIPPED CLASSROOMS:

These are the five best-flipped classroom strategies to help you spend less class time lecturing and more time doing hands-on activities and skills practice. Assign Readings with Questions to Answer, Create Lecture Videos. Provide Demonstration Videos, Create an Online Class Discussion Group, Use Digital Curriculum.

Flipped classroom approach that reveres the traditional lecture formal by providing you with content and/or tasks before the lecture. (such as video or articles)Class time is used for active and collaborative learning activities 

FLIPPED LEARNING AND TEACHING: 

Traditional instructor teaching style classes can be mixed with or transformed into flipped teaching. Before and after each (traditional/flipped) lecture, anonymized evaluation items the recorded from the students for continuous monitoring/dashboarding. In planned flipped teaching lessons, the teacher hands out lesson teaching material one week before the lesson is scheduled for the students to prepare talks. 

Small student groups work on the lecture chapters instead of homework and hold the lecture in front of their peers. The professional lecturer then discusses, complements, and provides feedback at the end of the group talks. Here, the professional lecturer acts as a coach to help students prepare and perform live performances.

WHAT WILL STUDENTS GET FROM FLIPPED CLASSROOMS:

Most students prefer the flipped classroom model. Most students spend less time on homework and flipped classes. Students will understand the content of the greater flipped classroom. Students like the increased interaction time with classmates and teachers. learning in a traditional classroom setting, the flipped classroom uses a more application-based approach for students (i.e. hands-on and problem-solving activities). 

The flipped classroom is extremely convenient, especially for students that face difficulties in traveling to the physical classroom. Such students still have the foundational information of the course at hand online. The flipped classroom is used as a student-centered teaching model to ensure that the course is primarily aimed at contributing to the student’s overall success in obtaining a proper, effective education.

Independent learning is undoubtedly a valuable skill for any learner to develop, especially within junior high and high school students. With the flipped classroom approach, students obtain the initial information independently, at home, often through video content. This enables them to get used to the process of self-study and allows them to learn at their own pace.  

LIMITATIONS:

Critics argue the flipped classroom model has some consequences. Not all students (families) are from the same economical background so there are differences in access to computer or video viewing technology outside of school hours. 

Others argue Flipped classrooms may lead to increased computer time effect on students. Adolescents are already spending too much time with computers. Teachers may face challenges with this model as well. Increased preparation time is initially likely needed, as creating high-quality videos requires teachers to contribute significant time and regular teaching responsibilities.

CONCLUSION:

The flipped classroom model is becoming a popular way to increase the interactivity of the instructional format. When using the flipped classroom model, there is more effort needed on the part of both learners and instructors to prepare materials and videos before a lesson, lecture, class or session takes place in comparison to the traditional classroom model.

The important findings of this study are that the flipped classroom has a great potential to improve students’ programming self-efficacy in an introductory programming course as well as students’ academic performance. Engaging children in learning is the most important factor. Flipped classrooms help every student in unique learning. With the right tools and strategies, elements of the flipped classroom approach can lead to better student outcomes and enhanced understanding of concepts.

With this model, students can develop independent learning skills, build a deeper comprehension of topics, and catch up more easily when they are absent. For teachers, this approach allows making better use by spending less time lecturing to students more time helping to develop students’ understanding.
