1 - Flipped Learning helps your busy students who are frequently absent from your classroom.
As so frequently happens in every school, there are many students who are absent all too frequently. These students are absent for various reasons, such as sporting commitments, musical rehersals, illness or simply disorganised parents. These students would normally be given work that they had to catch up on and would quickly fall behind. NOT with a flipped classroom. With a flipped classroom these students can still access all the content at home and at least begin to attempt to do the higher order thinking as well.
2 - Flipping enables better differentiation
3 - Increase your knowledge of your students
4 - Improve your classroom management
5 - You will be educating parents
6 - There is more class time for deep work
Flipped learning allows you to invert Bloom’s taxonomy. In a traditional classroom, you spend a lot of time at the bottom of the taxonomy, doing shallow thinking such as identifying or regurgitating knowledge, but when you flip your classroom the shallow thinking is done on their own either at home or in some other independent space. Instead, you will have time to do higher order thinking, such as creating, analyzing or evaluating. Helping students create an actual understanding of the content, not just know it. What’s more, you are there to help them. Students require much more feedback for the deep work than they do for the shallow thinking and now you are available during class time to help them with this.
