I’ve found a way to replicate myself.
Flipped learning was widely adopted in 2000. Lage, Platt and Treglia wrote in their paper where by getting learners to read up before class, lecturers can then use the class time for discussion or application of learning.
It is an attractive proposition in theory.
However, educators here, including myself, face difficulties implementing it.
From my interactions with schools, some students needed more than learning devices. Some schools bought headsets for their students. Others chairs and tables. Well, there are some with first-world problems.
Challenges with flipped learning isn’t confined to children. Adult learners face similar issues.
In my upcoming virtual seminars for School Staff Developers, I will be replicating myself in the following way.
- Pre-recorded sessions: Segments of pre-recorded sessions will be played during the seminars. During the time, online polls and questions will be presented to the participants for their responses. Doing so allows me to effectively replicate myself.
- Additional elearning sessions: Not all participants have similar experiences in their roles as School Staff Developers, hence additional elearning sessions are provided for their reference. This allows them to review the content as many times as they wish at their own pace.
