    Rob Dean

  • A Warmer….

  • Today’s agenda

    The problems of the traditional classroom What is a flipped classroom? Flipped versus traditional How might it work in practice? Pros and cons of the flipped classroom

  • The traditional classroom

    Check homework Teacher presents language Students take notes Students practice meaning, form, pronunciation Students do homework to reinforce MFP

    … and some of its associated problems: Some students haven’t brought homework Pace of presentation dictated by the teacher Some students assimilate information more quickly then others Lack of time to put the language into practice

  • So what is a flipped classroom?

  • What is a flipped classroom?

    Flipped classroom is an instructional methodology and a type of blended learning that delivers instructional content, often online, outside of the classroom and moves activities, including those that may have traditionally been considered homework, into the classroom. In a flipped classroom model, students watch online lectures, collaborate in online discussions, or carry out research at home and engage in concepts in the classroom with the guidance of the instructor.

  • Flipped versus Traditional

    Traditional Check homework Teacher presents language Students take notes Students practise meaning, form, pronunciation Students do homework to reinforce MFP

    Teacher is the ‘sage on the stage’

    Flipped Students study and practise M,F,P at home Students have plenty of time to practise language sociably in class using collaboration and personalisation Students receive support and guidance from the teacher as needed

    Teacher is the ‘guide on the side’

  • What would be a flipped version of this presentation?

  • Is the flipped classroom an entirely new idea?

    Not necessarily…

    Prepare at home; give a presentation in class

    Read at home; discuss in class

  • Have you flipped?

    Share a flipping experience!

  • Why is autonomous study a good thing?

    Students choose when and in what

    order they perform tasks

    There are fewer time pressures

    than in the classroom

    Students can work at their

    own pace

    Students can address their own needs

    more effectively

    They can revisit material as

    often as they like

    1) The coursebook / grammar book

  • Marking homework…

    Together in class

    Time consuming

    Teacher marks it

    Time consuming

    Tiring

  • Hints and tips make students think Automatic marking means less work for the teacher Instant feedback means results for the student are here and now Repetition of an activity means students can see improvement and progress

  • When they mark it themselves, I’m never sure how well they did

    When I mark it myself, it then takes ages to

    transfer their marks into the register

    I never know whether students

    do their homework or not

    The trouble with homework…

    It often takes a while to determine areas of

    difficulty – both of the group and of individuals

  • Language Feedback

    Well done!!!

    •The city is mindblowing.

    •To see it all, it would take a few days.

    •Maybe you’ve heard of Tihange

    ????

    •You should to go there in summer

    •There is fine place

  • The flipped classroom – potential problems (and suggested solutions)

  • Students might not be able to access the online resources Students might not do their homework and so won’t be able to participate in social classroom activities Students and parents might think the teacher is being lazy It won’t catch on in my school

    If they can access Facebook, they can access MyEnglishLab More chance with MEL that they WILL do their homework. Rationalise clearly the thinking behind the flipped classroom. Discuss it with students and parents. Neither did ABBA or the Internet at first. Everything starts small! The flipped classroom – potential

    problems (and suggested solutions)

  • Traditional
