TO FLIP OR NOT TO FLIP YOUR CLASSROOM3IntroductionThe traditional system of teaching and learning where the teachers spends 90 percent of the time to lecture as the students listen and take notes and sometimes get an assignment has come under critical scrutiny from a section of educators, policy makers, parents and event students. According to Gojak (2012, para. 1). “Whenever a different strategy comes along, educators wonder about its potential, including for the latest addition--the flipped classroom.”. Flipping the classroom has emerged as one of the alternatives to the above challenge. Flip the classroom is a system where the students are given tasks to take hone. The students then do a presentation during the classroom hours by sharing their findings. Thus the focus is shift from teachers giving lectures to students engagement. Some simple define this method as using videos to do assignment. I think flipping the classroom is more than just using a video. It is engaging and empowering our students to utilize their ability to learn and understand without boundaries. It takes a couple of days for students to complete the cycle. The instructor presents the topic and engages the students in the classroom. A follow up of group or individual video and othermultimedia activities is carried on by the students.

They may also collaborate with other teachers across the globe to produce such videos. Some teachers even engage their class in producing such videos.ChallengesAs much as some educators believe in flipping the classroom, there are some that find it difficult to accept it as an effective teaching and learning method. Poor quality videos, too much time spent on school work, the cost involve and the lack of resources are some of the concerns expressed by these educators. Majority of our teachers may not have the required skills in capturing, editing and delivering quality and relevant video to be used in flipping the classroom. Teachers are therefore forced to have to learn new skills which may be perfected over a long period of time. For this reason some of the teachers are unwilling to learn the new skill and those that do learn it have theinitial challenge of not being able to produce quality and relevant videos. Students are required to spend too much time on one topic or subject. They have to spendtime at home viewing videos which can be time consuming. If each subject teachers gives them videos to view you can imagine how much time they have to spend on all theses. It becomes overwhelming for bot the students and their.
