For this month, I reviewed 62 studies and articles and found some real gems.
This month has one of the penultimate studies I have read to date. The study created a flipped evaluation tool based on the Global Elements of Effective Flipped Learning. All Flipped Learning educators should seriously use this diagnostic tool to evaluate your practice. It was developed by Raul Santiago, María Teresa Sánchez-Compaña and Cristina Sánchez-Cruzado. They developed the tool in conjunction with many of the leading Flipped Learning educators in the world. It is the top research article and you can get the link to the tool below.
Besides the evaluation tool, the study that intrigued me the most was study number 2, which reported about how the researcher created a Flipped Class that enhances student leadership.
We continue to see that Flipped Learning is a meta-strategy as it enhances other deeper learning strategies. Number 2 is Peer Instruction and Number 3 is Gamification, Number 4 is Project-Based Learning, and Number 5 is how FL enhances the use of student-response systems
Many of the other studies not in the top ten continue to show that Flipped Learning works in a wide variety of content areas. Content areas that I saw demonstrated positive gains in the following areas:
- Teaching English in China
- Teaching technical writing in the Philippines
- Teaching English vocabulary to Vietnamese students
- EFL discursive contexts in a contrastive manner (I have no idea what that means)
- Physical education for middle-school students
- Physical activity course in higher ed (two studies)
- Organizational dynamics
- Differential calculus
- E-learning media
- Behavioral social science
- Entrepreneurial project management
