A Content Taxonomy (#openflip)


Question: Can we say that most online and semi-distance courses use a flipped learning methodology? since students work the content on their own. What makes them flipped or not flipped?#flippedClassroom #openflip (source)

This question inspired today’s broadcast, specifically in terms of how students, “… work the content on their own”.

Content taxonomy

Conclusion: The goal of any live (synchronous) class (be it online or in-person) is to leverage a content taxonomy in a way that adds the most value in achieving desired results (i.e., learning outcomes). An instructor should help learners move from being dependent to being independent, and finally to being interdependent in terms of using content to demonstrate what they know (i.e., through the six facets of understanding), what they can do (skills), and who they are in terms of a subscribed value system.
