“The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without a teacher.”
‘Creativity’ is such a large umbrella, and so difficult to define – particularly in Education – so I have decided to take on one particular focus and look at how to turn traditional learning on its head by ‘Flipping the Classroom’.
This diagram shows how the flipped classroom works from the perspective of the student - where preparation and study outside the classroom, enables them to show their understanding of the key concepts through application of more difficult and longer tasks in the classroom.
The short clip below explores the possibilities of this strategy from the perspective of the teacher.
I also found this ‘How to...’ tutorial, which provides some explanation of possible tools that might be of help in developing practical strategies for integrating the ‘Flipped Classroom’ into regular classroom practice.
