10 Reasons  High Schools Students Say They Prefer Learning Online | Flipping the Classroom | Scoop.it

Lisa Nielsen:


Ever wonder how students feel about learning online? At the recent iNacol Virtual Schools Symposium participants were treated to an experience that is surprisingly is rarely available at education conferences. We had the opportunity to hear directly from a panel of students who explained why they preferred learning online. Here are some of the reasons shared by these students and others I heard from explaining why students preferred this method of learning.

Sure, some kids will ignore the video. “The same kids who don’t currently do their homework will not watch the lecture,” says McCammon. “But as you start making your class more engaging, kids who don’t usually do their homework will start doing it because they want to participate in the class.” Kids write questions down while they’re watching the video, and then the first 10 minutes of class is for discussion of what they’ve seen. Then kids spend the remaining 50 minutes working in teams of four to solve problems.

A good in-depth article about flipping the classroom.

Rebecca Ferlazzo's curator insight, May 12, 2013 5:38 AM

Jusst like some of my earlier scoops this model "flips" the classroom. But this classroom is "flipped" with a twist. Technology is integrated at every step. So does this still make the "flipped classroom" a good model? Or does the integration of technology take away from the experience? Technology- Help or Hinderance?
