Flip The Classroom

Presented By: Trenessa Wood

Definition of Flipped Learning

Flipped Learning is a pedagogical approach in which direct instruction moves
from the group learning space to the individual learning space, and the resulting
group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment where
the educator guides students as they apply concepts and engage creatively in the
subject matter.

What is the Big Idea?

The idea behind flipping a classroom is instead
of the teacher lecturing during class and leaving
students to figure out assignments on their own
at home, the teacher flips the class and gives
students the opportunity for hands-on activities
and meaningful learning during class.

What does this


Students watch video lectures of 5-7 minutes

and write down any questions they have as
Teachers use class time having students
engage in meaningful activities that stem
from the lectures.

Blooms Taxonomy
In terms of Blooms revised taxonomy (2001), this means that students are
doing the lower levels of cognitive work (gaining knowledge and
comprehension) outside of class, and focusing on the higher forms of cognitive
work (application, analysis, synthesis, and/or evaluation) in class, where they
have the support of their peers and instructor.

It promotes student centered learning and
Students can access and learn the
information at their own pace.(eg. review as
needed, rewind videos, etc)

Teachers are unable to ensure that students
actually watch the lectures prior to class.
It requires additional prep and skill set for
the teacher in order to be properly
