Description

In this course, participants will understand the idea behind flipped classrooms and how it can be integrated into their own classroom curriculum.  The flipped classroom has been defined as a pedagogical model in which the typical lecture and homework elements of a course are reversed. Short video lectures are viewed by students at home before the class session, while in-class time is devoted to hands-on exercises, projects, or discussions.  

Flipped (upside down) classrooms focus on active learning and student engagement giving the instructor a better opportunity to deal with mixed levels, student difficulties, and differentiated learning styles during the in-class time. 

By the end of this course, participants will have a full understanding of this new method and be able to confidently implement a “Flipped Classroom” lesson.

  • Understand the components of a Flipped Classroom and how to successfully implement it in class. 
  • Confidently create ‘lectures’ via various media methods. 
  • Guide students on an individual and group basis in class.

Reviews about this course

I have to say this was the best thing I’ve done to improve my teaching in fifteen years. The course was completely hands-on and the mentor positive, organized, encouraging and helpful. We were made to immediately subscribe to, install and try out the various programs and learning platforms we were introduced to, so that even the less technologically adventurous participants learned to use them with ease…  The course was carefully structured, the atmosphere in class friendly, and the management/office staff welcoming and efficient. And the guided tours were so interesting – don’t skip them!

Attending the course Flipped Classroom was one of the most amazing professional experience! I have learned many tools which will help me to modernize my work in classroom (Thinglink, Padlet, Popplet, edPuzzle, Kahoot, Mind Mapping etc.). Also, now I understand the idea behind flipped classrooms and how to integrate it in my lessons. Fourteen interesting people from all over the Europe shared educational systems experiences and worked together. I improved my vocabulary and English speaking! A great course, I will reccomend it to all those who want improve knowledge about modern classroom and teaching.

We explored the basic functions of Google apps for education, we used apps for creating quizzes, we learned how to use different apps for bringing the class together in one virtual space.
