Flipping the classroom is a great way to engage students and let them shine!
As an environmental educator, I draw many parallels to the work I do as an interpreter and environmental leader.
For me flipping the classroom draws many parallels to the study of environmental interpretation. As an interpreter, I have learned techniques that help bring objects to life (trees, birds, the sky). While these are living things, they are also often taken for granted or people don’t even see them. I am tasked with helping my students not only see them, but see their value, and know how and why they are connected to them. So for me, flipping the classroom encourages the student to inquire, interpret and lead their own journey through the subject matter.
