The Flipped Learning Network recently released the following “Four Pillars” that teachers must incorporate to create a “Flipped Learning” experience:
1 Flexible Environment. Educators can create flexible spaces in which students choose when and where they learn, as well as flexible timelines for learning and assessment.
2 Learning Culture. The Flipped Learning model deliberately shifts instruction to a learner-centered approach where class time is dedicated to exploring topics in greater depth and creating rich learning opportunities.
3 Intentional Content. Educators use Intentional Content to maximize class time in order to adopt methods of student-centered, active learning strategies.
4 Professional Educator. Professional Educators continually observe their students, providing them with feedback relevant in the moment and assessing their work. Professional Educators are reflective in their practice, connect with each other to improve their instruction, accept constructive criticism and tolerate controlled chaos in their classrooms.
