Flipping – An Interesting Pedagogy

I’m becoming more convinced that a flipped model of learning could really work for my classroom. I’m committing to doing some further investigation this year after some small steps into this world of turning instruction 180 degrees. At the upcoming Languages TeachMeet, a Spanish teacher I found online from the US, Heather Witten, will be talking via Skype about her flipped Spanish classroom. I’m also going to apply for an NGS scholarship to go and learn all I can about the practicalities of this pedagogy – I’m already on board with the theory!

Not sure what a flipped classroom looks like? Take a look at this infographic which explains it nicely.

  1. Hi Fiona
    I’d like to know if you have been using the Flipped Classroom Model much and how much have you incorporated it into your classroom? I am writing a paper on active learning in MFL for a course that I am doing and am going to mention the Flipped Classroom model although it’s not one that I am using myself at the moment (although I am using some software tools such as Quizlet).
