Students are to check out the video below in order to complete the next day's lesson in class. A part of the inverted classroom allows students to progress at their own pace outside of the classroom without having to feel frustrated without their teacher.
- Keep videos at 3 minutes or less
- Have students as the video presenters as they are more prone to hear each other than the teacher who may fall redundant.
- An inverted classroom is a teaching environment that mixes the use of technology with hands-on activities.
- In an inverted classroom, typical in-class lecture time is replaced with laboratory and in-class activities.
- Outside class time, lectures are delivered over some other medium such as video on-demand.
- Contact hours are spent having students actively engaged in learning activities.
- Additional time outside of class is spent completing learning activities.
The goal here is to have students tell other students the task that they will be studying the next day. The student will re-learn the day's lesson as as well as engage their parents in their learning if needed. In order to complete learning tasks at school, the student is expected to learn and review material that would normally be taught in class at their leisure in their comfort zone. Then they return to class with their questions, ideas and learning tools in order to engage in the lesson with their teacher rather than the teacher talking TO the student; they talk together.
