Learning Cycles of the Flipped Classroom

As promised, I’m posting a quick blog on the Learning Cycles of the Flipped Classroom.  These were provided to me by Sarah Gilbert of meLearning Solutions. She referenced this post with reference to the model: User Generated Education Blog.

This model shows the Flipped Classroom as cyclical rather than pre-work followed by an event.

The four types of activities are either categorized as educator suggested or learner generated.

Experiential Engagement:  As I understand it, this is a hands-on learning activity that fully engages the student.  Something that will make the students become interested in the topic.

Concept Exploration: Learners are exposed to concepts touched upon during Experiential Engagement. This might be lectures watched at home on you-tube.

Meaning-Making: Learners reflect on what they’ve learned. I remember being required to “journal” back in the 90’s about the concepts in class. Now it would be blogging but it’s the same concept.

Demonstration and Application: Learners have a chance to demonstrate what they learned and apply the material.

This is all material from our webinar led by Sarah Gilbert. In my next blog, I’ll post a link to the webinar.
