With Skolengo, practice the flipped class concept easily. Discover our features and user feedback.

What is a flipped class?

The principle is simple: the students each receive written courses or videos using online resources. They view them at home instead of homework so as to prepare for the class the next day with the teacher: hence the name “flipped class”.

According to teaching specialists; the flipped class system will be beneficial as much for students as for teachers. To learn the courses at home allows the student to learn dynamically and they will remember the lesson better. Coming back to class, students can obtain help that is more adapted to their individual needs.

For teachers, the teaching evolves. The students have learned at home and the teacher can adapt the exercises according to the difficulties or the talents of the students. Thanks to the flipped class, parents can also become players in their children’s learning.

Experimentation with a flipped class in the framework of a debate in moral and civic education (EMC)

I do more and more flipped classes using the sections on the Skolengo platform; The design is quite fast and I can easily copy or move an article from the blog to another course class. In addition, the storage space quota is unlimited in the sections.

How can you prepare students for handling a microscope in a flipped classroom?

Using flipped classes frees up time in biology class for doing experiments. In addition, (before the class) I immediately see which students seem to be having difficulties and I can tailor the work that I give them to do BEFORE arriving in class. The flipped class allows me also to see what points of the lesson have been mostly understood and what points remain to be reviewed in greater depth.Christelle Jacquemin, biology teacher in a junior school (57)

The features make it easy to set up a flipped class

With Skolengo, teachers have the possibility of setting up a flipped class easily. Many features of the solution help to establish this practice.

The teaching binder allows teachers to prepare activities with rich content: images, audio content, videos, exercises. Students can study the content and then discuss it in class with their teacher.

The teacher can also use the blog to develop a subject by integrating text, images and videos into it. As students are given access to it, they can then interact with the teacher by themselves, publishing content.  The students also have the possibility of having their own blog for storing their work done in class or at home, which allows the teachers to consult their work directly on the EMS and to assess it.

With the multiple choice quizzs, the teacher has an almost instantaneous view of what the students have learned. The teacher can then adapt their course and practice differentiated teaching.

The pad is also an interesting tool for developing collaborative writing and having a written trace of the work.
