Education has been a vital part in the life of a person, without which a person does not have the confidence and knowledge to grow and become something. There are people who could not afford to have a very high education but still with their minimal education they shine bright as legends and are known all over the world. The government has given right to education to each and every citizen of every country and there are many policies and inventions that make the field of education more interesting and worth learning. Students often find learning in schools, attending lectures boring but with the advancements in studies there are many ways to make the education interesting and more of a fun activity. Everybody has heard of smart classes, e-learning, online studying, all these are latest means of studying exercised by various schools and colleges of the country, popularly known as flipped classrooms. Let’s make a comparison between the traditional classroom learning and flipped classroom learning for better clarity and decision making:

  • Centre of Attention: In Traditional Classrooms, the centre of attention is on the teacher who is giving the lecture irrelevant of the fact if the student is listening or not. In this type of learning teacher is only focussed on delivering the lecture but the students are not attentive. But in Flipped Classroom, the whole attention is on the student, they learn by themselves through the online video and the teachers are available in case of any query.
    Restrictive Learning: In traditional Classes, teachers are restricted to complete the lesson in the class of 30-50 students who are not even attentive and are getting frustrated and sleeping in the class. All a teacher care is about finishing the syllabus. But in Flipped learning, students have to understand the lesson by themselves and the teacher is able to pay personal attention on every student in case of any doubt.
  • Ways of Learning: Traditional classes follow transmitting knowledge by way of reading and making the students learn through textbooks which sometimes does not provide a full clarity of the topic. But in flipped classes, the student gets to do home assignments and make their concepts as clear as ice.
  • Pressure: In traditional education there is only pressure increasing on the minds of the students. They are not able to learn much but are stressed out because of confusing concepts and tests. In flipped education a student learns from the visual slideshows which create a better picture in their minds and they feel confident and ready for tests and exams.
  • Classes: There are only lectured classes held in the traditional system, but in flipped system there is viewing of lectures on tab/phone beforehand as well as personal lectures which are held for students.

To conclude, education is the strongest tool a person can acquire, and then why not extract the best out of it and learn through innovative ways which are interesting and lasts for a lifetime.
