THE FLIPPED Turaing Treditinal Education on lts Heaed CLASSROOM Traditional Education on Its Head Many educators are experimenting with the idea of a flipped classroom model. So what is it and why is everyone talking about it? WHAT IS THE FLIPPED CLASSROOM? The flipped classroom inverts traditional teaching methods, delivering instruction online outside of class and moving "homework" into the classroom. THE INVERSION The Traditional Classroom The Flipped Classroom Teacher's Role: Sage on the Stage Teacher's Role: Guide on the Side Homework WATCH lecture anline tonight! LECTURE TODAY Reading and questions ACTIVITY TODAY due tamorraw WHAT A FLIPPED CLASSROOM MODEL DOES Students watch lectures at home at their own pace, communicating with peers and teachers via online discussions. Concept engagement takes place in the classroom with the help of the instructor. A THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK Educational technology and activity learning are two key components of the flipped classroom model. They both influence student learning environments in fundamental ways. Classroom Flip provides opportunity uses for Educational Technology Learning Through Activity influences influences The Learning Environment Source: Jeremy F. Strayer, Ohio State University HOW IT CAME TO BE Many factors influenced the creation and adoption of the flipped classroom model. However, two specific innovators played a key role. ITS INFANCY· 2007: Teachers Jonathan Bergman and Aaron Sams at Woodland Park High School in Woodland Park, CO, discovered software to record PowerPoint presentations They recorded and posted their live lectures online for students who missed class. THE FLIPPED CLASSROOM Bergman and Sams were asked to speak to teachers around the country about ... ......• .... The online lectures started spreading. their methods. Teachers began using online videos and video podcasts to teach students outside class, reserving class time for collaborative work and concept mastery exercises. WHAT'S DRIVING IT? Two key factors are driving increased adoption of the flipped classroom model. POOR LEARNING OUTCOMES The traditional one-size-fits-all model of education often results in limited concept engagement and severe consequences. Yearly High School Dropouts 7,200 each day 69% graduate 31% donit 1.3 million year An average of 7,200 students DROP OUT of high school each day, totalling 1.3 million a year. Only 69% of students who start high school finish four years later. PREVALENCE OF ONLINE VIDEO The availability of online video and increasing student access to technology has paved the way for flipped classroom models. Adults Who Have Viewed an Online Educational Video +2,400 2007 15% of Internet Users online video lessons in Khan Academy 2010 30% of Internet Users covering topics from arithmetic to physics, finance to history WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE Many schools and classrooms have adopted the flipped classroom model. Here, we look at Clintondale High School near Detroit, which has employed the flipped classroom model to great success. HOW IT WORKED· Teachers created three videos a week. • Students watched the 5- to 7-minute videos at home, or in school if they didn't have Internet access at home. • Class time was spent doing labs or interactive activities to illustrate concepts. Concepts from Video Students receive instant feedback. Teachers have more time to help students and explain difficult concepts. Students don't get as frustrated. Before, many students wouldn't complete homework if they got frustrated with it. Working on problems in class minimizes this problem. Teachers revisit concepts students don't understand. After students watch lessons, they write down any questions they have. Teachers review those questions with students individually. "It's about changing instructional models so the students can receive more instructional support in the classroom from the experts that Clintondale has on staff." Teachers support students in class. Students who might not have technology or parents to help them outside of school now have -Bruce Umpstead, Michigan Office of Education Technology & Data Coordination teachers guiding them in class. THE RESULTS- BEFORE THE FLIP AFTER THE FLIP +50% 44% 19% (13% of freshmen of freshmen failed English failed math of freshmen of freshmen failed English failed math 736 discipline cases in one semester 249 discipline cases in one semester KNEWTON Sources: Jeremy F.
