“I reversed my teaching in the classroom because I felt I could better meet the needs of the students, the demands of the parents, and my professional and personal needs. »This is how teacher Annick Arsenault Carter (in 7e year in New Brunswick) explains his choice.
It is interesting to read some statistics regarding teachers who overthrow their class. Éric Noël participated in a 2012 survey conducted informally among the community of teachers practicing the inverted classroom via the hashtag #flipclass on Twitter. No less than 319 people answered the call. We see there that it is at 2e secondary cycle that the formula has the most followers, mainly in mathematics and science.
However, among the supporters of the inverted class in Quebec, one of the most dynamic is certainly Ms. Caroline Hétu, who teaches French.
During one of his workshops, David Chartrand recalled that google glasses are expected by the end of the year. They will make it possible to obtain information in real time on everything we see. "Like it or not, it may be that students arrive with that next year," he said.
Definitely, we have not finished being surprised by technological innovation! You better be prepared to face it.
To go further, here are some interesting resources about this new pedagogy.
