Should we 'flip' our classrooms?

Should we 'flip' our classrooms? | TELT | Scoop.it

Perhaps, instead [of explicit classroom instruction], I should video myself explaining new concepts in a stilted fashion, unsure as to whether my explanation has been understood or whether repetition is necessary. I could then ask students to watch this video at home, surrounded by the distractions of their bedrooms and then the lesson time would be freed-up for me to try my best to undo the misconceptions that have developed whilst somehow dealing with those students who didn’t actually watch the video. This is flipped learning.

"Flipping the classroom" is a complete misnomer and an indictment of what appears to be happening in a majority of classrooms. Truly flipping the classroom is to invite a student to be the teacher. There is no better way to master a topic than to have to teach it. Like Shona I yearn for this misappropriated populist term to fade into oblivion. Time to rediscover the Socratic dialogue rather than use a band-aid.

The Full Picture onThe Flipped Classroom:

The Full Picture onThe Flipped Classroom: | TELT | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein says:

"I have been writing about and presenting on Flipped Classroom Model: The Full Picture for about a year now. The model that I propose is one where video lectures and tutorials fall within a larger framework of learning activities. I am titling it the Flipped Classroom Model to get folks’ attention given the Flipped Classroom popularity right now. It really is a experiential cycle of learning, where the video lectures support not drive the learning process.

A major roadblock or barrier to implementing the flipped classroom is that many educators do not know what to do in the classroom with the time once spent doing lectures. For educators, who are used to and use the didactic model, a framework is needed to assist them with the implementation of the Flipped Classroom."

Flipping the Classroom Requires More Than Video

Flipping the Classroom Requires More Than Video | TELT | Scoop.it

Here's what I think is relevant to language teachers about the flipped classroom:

 

"“If you structure your class exactly the same way you have always done but employ it flipped,” warns Richard Talyor, CMO for Echo360, “effectively what you have done is added an extra hour of class for every hour of class the student has. Respect the students’ time"

 

It's the extra time that language learners need, in addition to opportunities for interaction.
