Intentional Content & Professional Educator comprise the next two installments of the twelve part F-L-I-P learning training series that provides a quick but complete overview of flipped learning’s foundations.
“Intentional Content” is one of the most neglected pillars of flipped learning. Many educators who are new to flipping focus on the videos or the shifting of group versus individual space, but the power of flipped learning is dependent on choosing not only where content or activities take place but what content and activities are of primary importance. The final pillar of flipped learning, “Professional Content” ties in directly with the intentionality of content as a qualified educator is critical when creating content and choosing wisely how that content should be accessed.
Preview: Now that we have looked at the four pillars, in the next release we will look at a practical case study and framework for flipping, so enjoy these entries and check back again for more in our training series.
