My perspective on Flipped Classroom, Țăran Carla, Romania

I think independent learning, where students are the ones researching different subjects, is unquestionably an important skill for any learner to acquire, particularly among students. In a flipped classroom, we get our initial information on our own time, at home, usually through video content. This allows us, as students, to become accustomed to the self-study method and to learn at our own pace.

I first get acquainted to this method in CiELO, Erasmus+ project, when the teachers explained this teaching-learning method as an inversion of the traditional teaching technique, in which group learning takes place in class and then it is followed by homework or assignments (individual learning).  By this new method, we, students, are first introduced to a new topic at home through online videos and supporting online content, followed by class time in which we applied our knowledge and went deeper into the issue through discussion, problem solving, and group work under the guidance of our teachers. This innovative strategy is notable for its dependence on blended learning as well as the advantages enjoyed by individuals who choose to flip.

During our flipped classroom learning, we used group projects as one of the ways to study and research about our chosen topics. Working in a group enabled us to examine topics from the perspectives of others. We were influenced by others’ ideas, which then influenced our own thinking and broadened our horizons. Our group members weren’t just fellow learners, we were also each other’s teachers. Having to present our research improved not only our communication skills, but also our confidence and ability to present to an audience, which is a very important and useful skill to possess.

All in all, it was a great learning experience which I hope will be widelz introduced to other subjects and classes, as well.
