Since the world is now so technologically advanced, it is important to update things that use that technology. One of the things that had had major updates is today's classrooms and teaching methods. Schools used to have a "one size fits all" strategy meaning that there was only one curriculum and no room for differentiation. In today's world, we have everything that we need to help students succeed.
One of the ways that we can teach the students of today is by using the action learning model. This model works in a way that allows students to do the work entirely on their own. The students go through a four step process. First, they have to plan. In this step, they come up with steps to help them solve a problem or an issue. Second, they act on those steps. Third, they reflect on what happened, and finally they learn by figuring out why it happened the way it did.
Another way that we can teach students of today is by using the project-based learning method. This method is my personal favorite. In this method, students have to complete a given project and do research and then present the material to the rest of the class. This is also probably the easiest learning method that there is.
The way that these can be taught is through the flipped classroom model. I personally love this model because this is something that has helped me in the past. The flipped classroom model is a type of distance learning. Children learn the lesson for the day watching videos at home the night before and then doing the activities and homework in the classroom with the teacher present. Children are more likely to be able to comprehend and retain the material for a longer period of time.
