Flipped Learning
Posted 12/06/2017 02:46PM

Ally Rector, Year 3 Classroom Teacher at CES has been trialing the use of the “flipped learning” technique in her classroom this year. “I was introduced to this tool, aimed at building learning confidence, after attending a recent professional development course on Effective Differentiation,” she said. Ms. Rector uses an app called Explain Everything, which enables her to create and record lessons for students to watch at home. Students are then given the responsibility for their own learning, and are able to watch the whole or parts of the video as many times as they like in their own time. In the classroom they spend time at the beginning of the lesson addressing any questions students have, and reviewing the short activity that they need to complete. “I have found that once students have completed the ‘flipped learning’, they come to class more eager to learn and participate in lessons. They know what to expect and how to complete activities. I plan to build on this in the coming term through exploring the use of other apps.”
