Why the Flipped Classroom Would Be the Next Trend? (P.4)
At the ACCT Leadership Congress, Bill Gates promoted the idea of the ‘flipped classroom”: “This may be the biggest untold story of education technology: When used properly, technology can amplify the human element in education.”
So, what is the “flipped classroom”?
A flipped classroom is one where students are introduced to content at home, and practice working through it at school.
In this blended learning approach, face-to-face interaction is mixed with independent study via technology. Students watch pre-recorded videos at home, and then come to school to do the homework armed with questions and at least some background knowledge.
The concept behind the flipped classroom is re-thinking when students have access to the resources they need most. If the problem is that students need help doing the work rather than being introduced to the new thinking behind the work, than the solution the flipped classroom takes is to reverse that pattern.
This doubles student access to teachers and increases the opportunity for personalization and more precise guiding of learning.
If the trend to integrate technology into classroom in the past years is just simply a concept which leads to failures of many organizations in implementation, the “flipped classroom” has reached higher level as a methodology. But, how to apply this methodology in different categories successfully really depends on the innovation of an organization. That’s how you can see in IBI Flipped Classroom, an education ecosystem that helps children learn English as a second language in the same manor that they learn their native language and at the same time acquire the skills they need for the 21st century.
IBI School is established with the desire to transfer IBI Flipped Classroom and IBI Operating System to our franchise partners who share a similar aim of transforming educational experiences for their children. Using IBI’s technology platform to optimize their processes and creating their own emotional well-being, and personalized learning environments.
