Flipping the Classroom – Simply Speaking – YouTube


I recently read this post; Flipped Classrom: The Full Picture for Higher education by Jackie Gerstein, Ed.D., where I found the Youtube video embedded below. Read the full article here and then take a look at the video.

Sal Khan, of the Khan Academy, states:

There was nothing practical that anyone could do about this broken “learning” model until recently. But we can now deliver on-demand content to any student for nearly zero incremental cost. The video content can be paused and repeated as needed.  Students can focus on exactly what they need to know. They don’t have to be embarrassed to fill in remedial gaps. They don’t need to take notes. Crucially, the lectures can be given by superb communicators, with a deep, intuitive understanding of the material.

Ten years from today, students will be learning at their own pace.  The classroom will be a place for active interaction, not passive listening and daydreaming. The role of the teacher will be that of a mentor or coach as opposed to a lecturer, test writer, and grader. The institutions that will remain relevant will be those that leverage this paradigm, not fight it

    Think about it: “Ten years from today, students will be learning at their own pace. The classroom will be a place for active interaction, not passive listening and daydreaming.” Good teachers already eliminate passivity in the classroom — but it’s not as easy today because students expect personalized learning already. Don’t you see this? #etmooc
