Flipped Learning

Flipped Learning 3.0 for adults – in a cross-generational setting

Flipped Learning 3.0 for adults – in a cross-generational setting

This is the new challenge for  the EBI/EIE!

In the frame of the E4All (Education for All) project we will develop a special learning experience to convey flipped learning to educators inexperienced in this learning and training framework. The course will take place in Wiener Neustadt (in 2022).

Trainers from the staff of fife European Adult Training organizations will take part. The age distribution is fascinating: The participants will be between 20 and 65+ years old and thus offer the opportunity to plan, carry out and evaluate cross-generational learning within the framework of a flipped learning 3.0 setting.

Implementing Virtual Group Space

The frame conditions of the course force to implement both a virtual group space and an f2f group space for the final training. Here is the structure of the training:

Venue

The training will take place in Wiener Neustadt, Austria in Spring next year.

Participation

If you are interested to participate in this training please contact the organizer, Mr. Peter →  Mazohl. He can agree individual trainings or – if there are free places – even a participation in the training provided in the frame of the E4All project!

Certified Flipped Learning Teacher

Peter Mazohl, the president of the EBI, advanced to a certified Flipped Learning teacher. He attended the course, provided by the Flipped Learning Global Initiative (link: https://learn.flglobal.org/).

Flipped Learning 3.0 is well established and researched in various educational fields: Comprehensive in School Education, excellent in Higher Education, and also very well in Vocational Education and Training. The white space on the educational map is the field of Adult Education (AE). This was the reason to set-up a joint project with the Flipped Learning Global Initiative and the European Initiative for Education to develop the first guide for implementing Flipped Learning 3.0 in AE.  

Peter Mazohl’s studies in Flipped Learning 3.0 last from 2017 and were based on his broad knowledge and praxis in teaching and training in the last 40 years. The Flipped Learning Certificate is a kind of recognition of the teaching and training competence and in some was a legitimation to work as an expert in the dissemination and implementation of Flipped Learning 3.0 in Adult Education.

Work with Chromebook

Work with Chromebook

In the frame of the InterMedia project, we started a praxis test using a Chromebook. We want to test in which environment a Chromebook can be used and how day-to-day work with the device is structured.

The first experience is mixed: We found advantages as well as obstacles.

Pros

  • Very quick device (has an I5 processor)
  • Nice to work with the touchscreen
  • Supports a mouse as pointing device
  • Long working time (from the battery)
  • Well-done connection to WiFi

Cons

  • Does not support standard programs (Word, Photoshop, …)
  • Local storage restricted
    “What to do if you are not connected to the internet?”
  • Dependent on a WiFi connection to the internet
