flipped-classroom-extractGo to school, listen to your teacher lecture, go home, do your homework.
For centuries, this has been the way that school's been done.
But now, a new model of teaching is turning the traditional classroom on its head. Under the flipped classroom model, students watch lectures at home, online. Class time is reserved for collaborative activities that help reinforce concepts and increase engagement.


The present infographic on the Flipped Classroom has been published by knewton.com. it is mainly focused on the US market, but it translates a a deep coming change in the education sector and in the communication sector as well within the society.

At MAC-Team, we have already been developing successful pilot approaches of the Flipped Classroom in 2013 in the WikiSkills project. Active and collaborative learning can go one step further where the students/learners have an active learning/teaching role, and where the teachers and the other stakeholders (educational governance, companies ...) also get involved and contribute in a new relationship model.

We use this infographics as an initial food for thoughts. It only represents part of the blended approach and is mainly on the US market as explained a bove, but it sets the scene well. In this infographic, learn about the history of the flipped classroom model, and how it's improving learning outcomes for today's students.

What is Flipped Learning?

Flipped Learning occurs when direct instruction is moved from the group teaching space to the individual learning environment.
Class time is then used for active problem solving by students and one-to-one or small group interactions with the teacher. Students can watch the short lessons as many times as they wish to grasp the content and come to class ready to jump into the lesson, answer questions, work on collaborative projects, and explore the content further. Educators are embracing Flipped Learning in elementary, secondary and higher education in all subjects.

Remark from Students-on-the-job project: the flipped classroom is also being extended to external school/university stakeholders with the enterprise or socio-economic actors.
