The Flipped Classroom and

Blooms Taxonomy

Have you ever tried to help your own

children with the homework?

Classroom Work

Where in the learning cycle do your

students most need you face to face?

- Lecture?
- Practice?
- Discussion?
- Application?
- Assessement?
- Remediation?

Are you currently using a flipped

classroom model in your teaching?

What is the Flipped Classroom?

The flipped classroom is informed

by constructivist pedagogy and represents a shift
from passive to active learning to focus on higher
order thinking skills such as analysis, synthesis
and evaluation.

Flip Teaching form of blended

learning; leveraging technology to
focus on application.

In the flipped classroom, the roles and expectations of students and

teachers change where:
- students take more responsibility for their own learning and study core
content either individually or in groups before class and then apply knowledge
and skills to a range of activities using higher order thinking;
- teaching 'one-to-many' focuses more on facilitation and moderation than
lecturing, though lecturing is still important.
Significant learning opportunities can be gained through facilitating
active learning, engaging students, guiding learning, correcting
misunderstandings and providing timely feedback using a variety of
pedagogical strategies;
- there is a greater focus on concept exploration, meaning
making and demonstration or application of knowledge in the face-to-face

Where can I put a video into my lesson?

We dont use a tool for the sake of using tools.

We use a tool when it is appropriate for the job
at hand.

(Dan Spencer)

Educational technologies are an important

feature of the flipped classroom as they can be used
capture key content for students to access at their own convenience and to suit their pace of learning
(e.g. lecture material, readings, interactive multimedia),
present learning materials in a variety of formats to suit different learner styles and multimodal
learning (e.g. text, videos, audio, multimedia),
provide opportunities for discourse and interaction in and out of class (e.g. polling tools, discussion
tools, content creation tools),
convey timely information, updates and reminders for students (e.g micro-blogging, announcement
provide immediate and anonymous feedback for teachers and students (e.g. quizzes, polls) to signal
revision points,
capture data about students to analyse their progress and identify at risk students (e.g. analytics).
