What the flip is flipped learning?

Monday, September 11, 2017

Flipped learning reverses the traditional teaching method.

Put simply, students do the homework on a subject before the lesson takes place. This allows the teachers and students to work through the subject as a group in class.

This teaching method has yielded some great results including awards to teachers. Teachers like Stacy Roshan advocates flipped lessons. Numerous research has been published to support the benefits of flipped learning.
Resources created can be used again and shared with colleagues. You could soon have a an extended library of reusable teaching materials.

According to research published in 2015, children aged between 5 and 16 spend 6.5 hours per day watching videos. So why not integrate engaging video lessons? Sites like the Khan Academy have millions of subscribers world wide. But what about the need to customise materials to fit a curriculum?

3 ways you can utilize VideoScribe for flipped learning?

1. Create subject videos

VideoScribe is a great way to explain complex subjects. Incorporating images, text and audio really enables the teacher to keep students interested. Research shows 70% of learning is attained visually. So whiteboard animations are an ideal way to deliver information.

2. Get students to create their homework using VideoScribe

Setting presentations as homework tasks can lead to a lot of groans from students. The idea of standing up in front of your peers and reading aloud can be daunting. How about a home video assignment? This is exactly what 8 year-old Maisey did.

3. Convert a speech or lecture into a whiteboard

There are so many useful lectures, speeches and debates available online. Usually a person standing at a podium or just audio. VideoScribe can bring these valuable resources to life with visualizations.
