REVERSED ROLES AT SCHOOL:

FLIPPED CLASSROOM AND LEARNING THROUGH TEACHING

Objectives

  • A new beginning

    The basic aim is to implement Flipped Classroom in all the 7 project partner schools and revolutionise the teaching methods in order to improve academic performance of their 4000 students .

  • The key of success

    Our objective is to develop a culture of learning in which the key success is to make target group members identify learning as their goal, instead of striving for the completion of assignments.

  • Unusual learning

    Another reason for the success of the flipped classroom method is its online environment in which students perform better, than those learning the same material through traditional face-to-face instruction.

  • Friendly request

    We want to use students’ technological literacy to create more student-friendly learning conditions at school.

  • Creative Performance

    We would like them to acquire even greater confidence using new technologies. This confidence, combined with the ability to work on their own will prepare them for work in modern workplaces where employers expect their employees to do projects in a creative and independent way with only a slight supervision.

  • Foreign language opportunity

    Another major objective of the project is to provide the 4000 students involved with an opportunity to practise speaking foreign languages, especially English by doing their own group projects.

Needs

  • A new beginning

    The project is to find ways to motivate students to learn Sciences and Foreign Languages. Their poor school results are caused not only by missing background knowledge but also by inadequate teaching methods leading to lost of interest in education and lack of self-assurance and awareness of their educational goals. We need to make students more aware of what is happening in class and activate them through peer support and collaboration. Since lecturing isn’t the best way for students to learn science we aim to include exploration and creativity as part of learning standards and assign more classroom space for practise. Flipped Classroom seems to be a perfect way to embrace a creative solving problem method. When making their films for their classmates students will have to use a dose of creative thinking to present a chosen topic in an accessible and interesting way.
