Flipped Classroom, teaching for students to be the protagonists

Each time it is less surprising when a two-year-old child can use a mobile phone just like an adult. Technology is advancing by leaps and bounds and humans are keeping pace with it. Therefore, it is understandable that in educational centers, the primary place where children grow and develop, all kinds of technological devices are used: digital whiteboards, laptops, Chromebooks… This does not mean that we should leave behind traditional teaching and the usual books; rather, the Flipped Classroom combines the traditional with the three-dimensional.

For this reason, more and more schools are incorporating the Flipped Classroom. This new pedagogical method aims to have students learn by doing rather than memorizing. The goal is for them to study the didactic units outside of class and use classroom time for activities that require more complex cognitive development, where the experience and training of the teacher are necessary.

In this way, the teacher prepares the teaching-learning process in the classroom; explains the corresponding lesson for students to learn cooperatively and interactively. Additionally, the teacher plans the activities that students will develop at home.

Flipped Classroom at Clon Digital

At this point, the Clon Digital platform plays a fundamental role. It enables the development of the Flipped Classroom thanks to its virtual rooms where students can enter from any technological device and study videos or educational presentations at their own pace. These videos can be paused, fast-forwarded, or rewound, just like YouTube videos.

Thus, students cease to be spectators and become the main characters in their learning. As they are given greater responsibility, they are involved from the first minute in class, collaborate with their peers, ask questions, pose problems, and offer various solutions. Therefore, the knowledge taught by the teacher is acquired interactively and playfully. Also, diversity in the classroom is much greater since students can study at their own pace. They can pause and repeat the content as many times as they want and teachers can adapt to their needs based on their doubts and questions.

A teacher resolves a question for a student

The advantages of applying the Flipped Classroom concept are numerous. On the one hand, students are much more motivated; they participate in debates, give oral presentations, create reports, and work in groups. On the other hand, there is great feedback among the students themselves and also with the teacher.

The Flipped Classroom combines the traditional and the three-dimensional. This new teaching method aims to combine classical teaching with the application of newtechnologies. For this reason, Clon Digital keeps abreast of advances in education. The ultimate goal is to ensure that the future workforce is as well-prepared as possible.
