Flipped Classroom

Teaching, an activity considered in the modern world to happen in classroom settings, is witnessing revolutionizing transitions in the era of technological advancements. The most important characteristic of the new model of transfer of knowledge,named Flipped Classroom, is a shift from the traditional teacher-centered methodologies to student-centred and student-friendly processes.

The concept of teaching the content in the classroom by teacher is being reframed in the new approach as the teacher assuming the role of a facilitator in the learning process. The new initiative that began as an experiment in the millennium decades received widespread acceptance among teachers as well as students.

How does the classroom work?

Meaningful learning opportunities are provided to the students using administration of the content through in-class and outside the classroom engagements. More interestingly, in-class learning focuses on activity-oriented and/or technology supported content delivery. This provides for attentive and lively classrooms of discussions and other hands-on demonstrations that facilitate for development of critical thinking and enrich the learners to apply the theories and concepts learned to one’s living contexts.

Gathering of fundamental information and understanding of concepts can be arrived through various kinds of resources including audio, audio-visual materials and digital reading materials. Web administered study materials accessible from anywhere and anytime takes this concept of learning to a very high learner friendly development in the area of education.
