The flipped classroom idea is a hot one. Teachers like it; students like it; researchers like it; and districts like it. The driving force behind flipped classrooms is that transfers of information (lectures, if you will) are not the best use of a teacher’s instructional time. Through the use of technology, students now watch lectures virtually and preview learning objectives outside the classroom, allowing teachers to more effectively utilize classroom time working with students, answering their questions, and guiding them to apply the information they’ve previewed.
What about elementary schools and flipped classrooms? How can teachers apply the concept of flipped classrooms to their own teaching methods?
Well, VocabularySpellingCity has some ideas. All too often, we find teachers in the classroom using valuable classroom time calling words out to students for spelling tests or assigning and grading worksheets and quizzes. VocabularySpellingCity proposes “flipping the classroom” by using VocabularySpellingCity’s Premium features like Assignments to assign writing, vocabulary and spelling activities for use outside the classroom. VocabularySpellingCity automatically tracks test results and assignment activities for Premium Members, leaving teachers more time to do what they do best – engage their students!
