Flipped Learning

The goal of using flipped learning is to get the most out of the face to face time in the classroom between teachers and students.

Flipped learning is a pedagogical approach where learning is student - centered, rather than teacher centered. The students get more responsibility, they take ownership of their learning and the teacher is more like a guide on the sideline. The simple way to explain this method is that the students usually get prerecorded lecture online which is followed by in class exercises. In that way they can use the valuable time in the classroom with the teacher, practicing and discussing with each other what they have already learned.


By implementing flipped learning, students have an equal opportunity to receive the material. The focus is on individual learning where the student can watch and listen whenever they want, as often as they want and rewind and fast forward if they want. This method is also good for students who have learning difficulties. Parents can watch the video with the student and support them if needed. The individual learning can also encourage social interaction among student, making it easier for them to learn from each other.

Today most of our students grew up with Internet access and all kinds of digital resources, and with using flipped learning we are speaking their language.
Flipping also allows teachers to know their students better because of increased teacher- student interaction in class.
