Haut-Lac International Bilingual School is taking part in an unusual classroom initiative this week, from 30 January to 4 February 2017.

The French initiative, called La CLISE (CLasse Inversée : la SEmaine), promotes the notion of a "flipped classroom", which encourages students to actively learn course material at home via digital technology and then use class time to solidify their knowledge.  Teachers are thus freed from directing instruction, and have more time to work with their students on the harder task of assimilating knowledge.

This pedagogical model is now becoming more and more popular in schools. It is described as a reversal of traditional teaching so, instead of being taught new material by teachers at school, the students are asked to study the material at home, usually via video. And what used to be done at home is now done at school. Under the new model, students and teachers have more time for activities, group projects and discussions that give real meaning to academic material.

According to education specialists, this approach increases student motivation, makes teachers more available to students, encourages the use of new technology, increases the amount of group work, and gives students an active role in their learning.

The Classe Inversée : La Semaine (#CLISE2017) is an international event that showcases the flipped classroom method. Over 200 information sessions and workshops will take place this year throughout the world, including in Switzerland at Haut-Lac International Bilingual School.

Throughout the week, parents will have the opportunity to see the method in action, meet teachers who are running flipped classroom activities, and experience a flipped classroom for themselves as if they were a student.  To organize a visit, contact: This email address is being protected from spambots.
