Flipped Classroom Pioneer in SP

There is a buzz in the education scene called the FLIPPED CLASSROOM and it has changed the way teaching is delivered. On Apr 8, EDU invited Mr Aaron Sams, a pioneer in Flipped Classroom to conduct a seminar talk and workshop in SP.

Flipped Classroom or Flipped Learning is defined by Aaron as a pedagogical approach in which:

  • direct instruction moves  from the group learning space to the individual learning space
  • group space is transformed into a dynamic, interactive learning environment
  • educator guides students as they apply concepts and engage with subject
