Flipped Learning | Part 4: Why the Flipped Solution Would Be the Next Trend?

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 learning”?

A flipped learning is one where students are introduced to content at home, and practice working through it at school (online or offline).

In this blended learning approach, face-to-face interaction (online or offline) 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 learning 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 learning” has reached higher level as a methodology. Howerver, how to apply this methodology in different categories successfully really depends on the innovation of an organization.

With its unique innovation based on the flipped solution, IBI Flipped Learning, an education ecosystem that helps children and teens 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.
