ADVANTAGES OF THE FLIPPED CLASSROOM MODEL
Academic Research has shown that the flipped classroom has many advantages over the traditional classroom model. For students, a flipped class provides a more interactive and engaging learning experience. Students in flipped classrooms are able to receive one-on-one support from teachers, individualized learning that improves the overall learning experience.
This blended learning and self paced learning approach allows students more opportunities to work at their own pace. By providing access to pre-recorded lectures, lecture videos and other resources, students can review and practice the material as many times as they need to in order to fully understand it. This can be particularly helpful for students who struggle with certain course concepts, or who need additional time to absorb the information.
In this flipped model, students are given access to pre-recorded lectures, lecture materials, short videos, and other resources that tehy can practice prior to class, and then use in class time for hands-on activities, problem-solving, and discussion. This approach is designed to provide students with a more active learning and engaging learning experience, and to help them retain information better.
The flipped classroom provides students with a more interactive, self paced learning and engaging experience, they are more likely to be motivated to learn and participate in class with other students thanks to the possibility that teachers can implement a project based learning system. It has been shown to be effective in how students work on a variety of different subjects and disciplines. This approach has been shown to be effective for a diverse range of student populations, including students from different socio-economic backgrounds and students with different learning styles.
Students who participated in flipped classrooms performed significantly better on exams and other assessments than students who received traditional instruction. Students who participated in the flipped classroom model reported higher levels of engagement and satisfaction with their learning experience.
Flipped classrooms proved particularly effective for students who were struggling with learning the material. Researchers found that in flipped learning, students were more likely to attend class and engage in the hands-on activities, which helped to deepen their understanding of the material and improve their performance.
