EdTech: The Flipped Classroom
Homework traditionally follows classwork: a teacher introduces the subject matter then homework reinforces the learning.
Now that facts and information are just a quick search away, learners need to know more than ever how to evaluate, understand and apply information.
Flipped learning reverses the traditional order so that time out of class is used to acquire knowledge and activity in class is directed to understanding and extending it, exploring the issues, difficulties and applications.
This module looks at how best to make use of this in our professional practice with learners.
This module will help you to incorporate the flipped classroom approach into your teaching practice.
After completing this module, you will be able to:
• select appropriate digital tools to support a flipped classroom
• identify areas of the curriculum where a flipped classroom approach could improve the learner experience
• critically assess the value of the flipped classroom approach.
Digital Teaching Professional Framework
This module covers the EdTech component - B2 : Teaching context: face-to-face
- Use learning environment technologies to support teaching, e.g. electronic whiteboards, mobile devices.
- Structure sessions so that different (practitioner-led and learner-led) digital activities jointly reinforce the learning objective.
- Structure and manage content, collaboration and interaction in a digital environment.
- Consider how practitioner-led digital interventions can best support the learning objective.
- Reflect on the effectiveness and appropriateness of the digital teaching strategies chosen and flexibly adjust methods and strategies.
- Experiment with and develop new formats and teaching methods (e.g. flipped classroom).

Taking note of your feedbackWe greatly appreciate the time taken to provide us with feedback on each module. We regularly review all the feedback provided and use it to inform the development of new modules. Subject to funds being available and other constraints, we will amend existing modules where feedback shows this is required.
Great module. Very simple to understand and work through and it helps you realise how easy and beneficial it is to have a flipped learning model. It will save teachers so much time and allow them to focus on learning in the classroom.
Good, well formed explanations with an appropriate and direct assessment. Unlike other modules here, the answer wasn't vague and subjective. I'd love to see more scenarios explored in assessment to get ideas flowing.
Simple to follow.
I've been advocating the use of the flipped classroom model with tutors for quite some time and I really like how concise and informative the module is. I will be recommending this (and the further resources) in our tutor meetings.
Useful module on the basics of flipped learning for those new to the concept, or as a refresher for those who have some experience using the method. Bite size module useful for busy practitioners to up skill without having to commit to long units that do not fit within busy timetables. Unlike the collaborative modules I has issues with the drag and drop exercise on iPad, however worked ok on laptop.
Short and sweet- with useful resources too. Easy to apply I think in almost any setting, and I'll certainly give it a go.
Interesting topic and relevant in my industry
Concise, basic summary with some additional resources to explore.
Very useful; concise and conveys the important concepts of this approach.
I just completed again this module on Flipped Learning as I will be discussing the approach on Friday with a group of FE and HE colleagues. <br />
Adopting a more active learning approach in our face-to-face sessions makes so much sense. The module is effective in clarifying how the cognitive domain of learning could be prepared by the learners prior to the delivery, and how to fully exploit dynamic in-class activities with a focus on the affective and psychomotor domain learning.
Useful to understand the process but quite difficult to put in practise with most of my SEN students. One or two might benefit from this input for pre-teaching.
Clear, step by step training.
More aimed at lecturers as it can be a good way of getting students to remember things and how to do them especially in practicals.
good use of flipped learning
Okay but disagree with practice drawing technique in class as this can be done away from the classroom and then critiqued in the classroom.
Flipped learning works well with the highly motivated and those with resources.
could you explain what you mean by cognitive and affective domain learning?
A concise explanation of Flipped Learning which helps me to recognise the benefits and explain more about how I can adopt this method of teaching and share it with my colleagues.
Quick and easy introduction to flipped learning - linked resources provided greater depth of detail.
Excellent approach but all students must do their part for it to succeed.
Good to know
The Flipped Classroom- A very useful module that categorises tasks/activities that are appropriate for flipped learning. This is vital to scaffold learning effectively and challenge students appropriately.
This was much better - the information was clear and I felt confident I understood the concepts in order to complete the task correctly. There was less ambiguity.
Interesting, made you think a bit more about planning your lessons.
