Make sure your students have access to the flipped classroom content.
For example, a student does not have internet access. You should think about an alternative option such as employing a USB or DVD.
Giving students training about “how to watch educational videos”
We can assume that most students have watched movies. But watching educational videos is something different.
Teach your student how to interact with educational videos in a meaningful way. This makes them reflect on the educational nature of the video content (This video may be helpful https://youtu.be/TzYhxbXlVjo)
Keep it short
Remember that the video’s length also influences the completion of pre-class tasks.
Generally, 10-20 minutes is an ideal length of an educational video.
If you really need a long explanatory video, chunk the video into two to three short clips.
Ensure the pre-class task is completed
Pre-class learning is the entry ticket to the flipped classroom.
In general, some students never do pre-class activities in any type of classroom.
Therefore, you should decide what sort of strategies you will use to overcome this as a teacher.
For example, creating an interactive video with embedded students’ tasks or at the end of the video give an achievable task to complete by a certain deadline or giving rewards to students who have completed the pre-class tasks.
Clear and simple video
As a teacher, you are not expected to create a marvellous video made with a super-duper studio using high-quality recording devices.
But simple things can improve the quality of the videos, namely sit in a room with good lighting, ensure it is a noise-free area for recording and avoid using a distracting background.
No need for perfection
As a teacher, you are going to deliver your teaching content as a video to your students in a meaningful way.
In your video, you should teach naturally and speak in the way students are familiar with. It is better to use a colloquial accent to grab learners’ attention.
Whenever you think about perfection, just remember how many of your actual live lessons in a classroom have been perfect. Probably not very many. Don’t worry about perfection.
Start from small scale
You have the freedom to choose which scale you will flip in your curriculum; it may be one session or topic or unit or a whole module.
But one recommendation for you is to start with a manageable scale and figure out how best place to flip it.
Another suggestion, if you are looking for a suitable session for flipping, find something that your students struggle with understanding the content.
It can be accessed by looking through your past experience with the curriculum.
For example, if your student struggles to understand the medical management for the patient with myocardial infarction. That should be your first flipped classroom session.
