    Flipped Classroom: A Strategy To Increase Students Engagement Inside The Classroom
    Synopsis

    Increasing the engagement of students inside the classroom may help to increase the ability of self learning. Here is a method known as flipped classroom, which is a student centered classroom. In this method, students complete their readings at home and concentrate on problem solving in the classroom. Read on to know the benefits of flipped classrooms and how it helps students in their studies.

    In traditional classrooms in schools, a teacher delivers lectures on a chapter and students may ask questions. But the engagement of students inside the classroom is less as they have to listen to the lectures delivered or take notes given by the teacher. To increase the students’ engagement the teachers may try conducting quizzes and asking questions. Here Careers360 discusses a method known as Flipped Classroom that improves student engagement inside the class.

    What Is A Flipped Classroom?

    Flipped classroom is a strategy that helps students engage in activities, problem solving or clarifying their doubts inside the classroom. As the word indicates, flipped classroom is flipping the classroom lectures outside class and the homework activities inside the class. That is, students read books or watch the lectures online or through recorded videos outside the classroom and get prepared for the lessons before coming to the classroom. And inside the classroom they engage in activities related to the lessons and understand them in depth with the guidance of the teacher. The activities may be planned by the teacher or students according to the topic. In simple words, flipped learning is “school work at home and home work at school”. Flipped classrooms were first proposed in 1984 and came into practice in 2007.

    Why Flipped Classroom?

    The benefits of flipped classroom approach are that the students get individual attention and get engaged in the classroom. Students can access the content at home or outside the classroom any time. Video contents are flexible to watch and during their studies outside the classroom students can note down their doubts and ask the teacher inside the classroom. As students get engaged in classroom activities they can develop their interaction and communication skills, teamwork skills and can get more attention from the teachers.

    The teachers can work with the students individually by using flipped class. That is, it allows the teachers to personalize learning. Teachers have to prepare the video class with interactive contents for the students.

    According to Jon Bergmann, father of flipped-learning and founder of flippedClass.com “teachers should be the creator of the content”. That is, it's better to create your own content for students rather than depending on content available on the internet. The teacher can include questions between the class to make students interact. That is to pause the video and ask a question so that students can answer the question, making the class outside the classroom also interactive.

    Advantages Of Flipped Classroom

    According to Jon Bergmann the outcome of flipped learning is that students take more ownership of their learning, perform better on tests and are more interested and engaged.

    Flipped classroom methods have some difficulties as any new strategy will have. There should be internet access to all the students and teachers should be familiar with certain technologies that help them to create videos and other lecture materials.

    In traditional classrooms the center is the teacher. In flipped classrooms students are the center and teachers help them in their activities or resolve their queries. Main aim of the flip classroom is to make the students interactive and engaged during class hours. Flipped classrooms are practiced worldwide in many universities.
