The Flipped Classroom = The Freedom to Teach

SP Controls created Doceri for one reason: to help educators engage and connect with students. Screen Shot 2016-02-14 at 4.12.21 PMThe flipped classroom was developed by Jon Bergmann so he could spend more face to face time with his students. The flipped classroom teaching methodology is best defined on the Flipped Learning Network as the Four Pillars of Flip.

Flipped Learning is about being student centered; allowing teachers to differentiate instruction, give students the freedom to go at their own pace, and giving teachers the ability to create their own sharable content instead of relying on publishers. Our hope is that through our technology used in combination with other apps that teachers are able to minimize a teacher centered lecture/ worksheet class and become an interactive classroom. SP Controls believes that teachers should spend more time supporting their students and less time stuck at the front of the classroom lecturing. Flipped learning provides a structure whereby a teacher moves away from the stand and deliver method, makes their information multisensory and digestible in the form of a screencast, and gains face to face time with their students.

 SP Controls knows from our talks with teachers and administration that learning is not about the tech but about how teachers choose to use tech to enhance their curriculum. Choosing to make screencasts for students that could move at a faster or slower pace is a choice that places student need above the required pace of the curriculum. To foster this kind of interactivity between teacher and student SP Controls will be sharing the stories about Flip educators on Jon Bergmann’s podcast, The Flip Side. We believe in what these teachers are doing and want to spread the word about their amazing work. Enjoy the episodes and please share the shows. SP Controls supports the flipped classroom to encourage freedom of thought in the classroom. Doceri is available to flipped teachers to give teachers more Freedom to Teach!
