For me, this whole flipped learning thing it’s actually not new and that’s because it’s not the first time I’ve worked with Ken. I had the privilege of being his student one year ago in the Python programming course.
As I said back then, I think flipped learning classes are way better than traditional classes because there is more teacher-student interaction, therefore, the students are always active and they learn more and easier.
On the other hand, one problem that might appear with flipped classes is that the students may not do their lectures at home, and when it comes to do the class activities they won’t know what to do or how to do it.
In conclusion, the first thing that the teacher and the students need to do is to agree on how they’re going to work. The students will have to do their homework lectures and be willing to work in teams, and the teachers will need to be able to answer any questions about the subject and give the students activities so they can interact with each other and the teacher himself so that the students fully understand and have their questions/doubts clearly answered.
Here’s the link to the article about the A+ student I told you at the beginning of this post:
Here’s also a flipped learning video I really like and would want you to watch it:
