This is an interesting infographic about a different model of teaching called the Flipped Classroom.
Now, I know this debate can get contentious, so I just want to say up front that I don’t think either is absolutely 100% the correct way to teach. There are lots of different kinds of learners out there, and no one model will encompass the best model of learning for everyone. It’s just interesting to see information laid out in this type of binary (at the beginning of the infographic) and see possible options to explore in the classroom.
As the pandemic radically changed the way students learned, this way of learning has really been in the spotlight. But it doesn’t work for everyone. For example, I actually do really well as a student in the Sage on the Stage model; as an introvert group work and activities are very frustrating to me. I know that online interaction can be sketchy even when participation points are assigned from online classes.
But I still think it is interesting to think about how technology and online content can enhance and improve education. The infographic walks you through the education model, how it came to be, what drives it, and how it looks in implementation.
So check it out for yourself, and see what you think about this model of learning!
