BC 104 of 122One could be mistaken for assuming that the term 'flipped classroom' could be something that the police might want to investigate! However, in teaching circles it's a relatively new concept that originated in America. 

The term 'flipped' is referring to a reverse process, and 'classroom' is used to imply 'learning'. Quite simply, teachers have traditionally used home learning as an opportunity to consolidate and apply learning already undertaken in class to make sure that it's really 'gone in'. But the beauty of flipped classroom is that the teachers teach the conceptual stuff first by use of technology - an online video tutorial. This allows the pupil to watch it at home, rewatch it, discuss it with parents and peers and practice it independently before they approach it in the classroom.

Then, when the children come in the following week, they will meet the learning in class and be already at least fairly competent with it. The teacher then focuses on the bits they don't get and can then spend the rest of the week applying the concepts and consolidating in class. This is a very efficient way of teaching and one which promotes a key element of our vision: independent, active learning.

In this section, our Video Vault, you'll find some early attempts at some successful tried 'n' tested flipped classrooms. Watch this space as the vault grows to encompass more areas of Maths as well as some digressions into English.

Remote learning has launched today and teachers are excited to hear from the children. Some have videoed in to us!
