Description
In 21st century classrooms, labs and technology play a crucial role in understanding biological structures, functions, and processes related to human anatomy and physiology. However, the lack of scientific and technological tools in many high schools in Saudi Arabia has an adverse impact on both the teaching and learning processes. The flipped classroom is a new and alternative model of instruction that moves the lecture out of the formal environment in the class, assigning it instead as homework, and uses the class time to do activities attempting to promote students’ learning. The integration of the flipping method into the instructional system can contribute to solving problems that most educators encounter in their teaching, facilitate teaching and learning topics that seem invisible to the learners, and activate the learning environment in the classroom. The purpose of my project is to explore what is involved in creating a flipped environment. I develop an example unit plan, which consists of the specific learning outcomes of this unit, the online materials, and the classroom activities, and accompanying resources to design flipped lessons on the digestive system. The literature on constructivist approaches and flipped classes is used to guide my unit plan and creation of online resources. In addition, I share my experience of developing these resources to help other teachers who are interested in doing the same. While the development of these resources is time consuming, the outcomes of this investment are worthwhile for both teachers and their students.
