Flipped Learning: Helping Kids Take Ownership of Their Own Learning
There’s another reason why our Woodbury MN apartments are lucky to be in School District 834. With every creative solution, students benefit from a better learning experience. Among one of these creative solutions in School District 834 is “Flipped Learning.”
For example, in a traditional classroom, content is presented by a teacher during class time, and then students take problem-solving work home for “homework.” In the flipped classroom, this system is, well, flipped! Now, students are presented with content at home first, and when they return to the classroom, they then dive into the problem-solving portion with the help of their teachers and peers.
This is made possible with modern technologies that allow students to learn from home in more depth, teaching them digital literacy and forcing them to exert a greater sense of independence in their own work. Students can also learn at their own pace from the comfort of their own home.
Class time includes individual problem-solving exercises, working with partners, small groups, or whole-class events. This flipped system also frees up the teacher’s time to tend to the individual student’s needs. Instead of being the master of content, now the teacher is the master of the learning process and is able to spend more time with each student.
Keeping Our Woodbury MN Kids Healthy
Here at our Woodbury MN Apartments, there are plenty of opportunities for kids to get exercise and play, even at school.
Multiple studies show that when kids are active and healthy, they’re better able to learn in school. That’s why School District 834 takes the health and wellness of their students so seriously. In light of this, they have recently implemented their new Wellness Policy, which is dedicated to getting kids moving during the school day, ensuring that each student has healthy food to eat, and that each school fosters a safe and secure environment where students can focus on learning and flourishing, mentally and physically.
