Academic Model

Based on the "flipped classroom" methodology, IBI incorporated the innovation that helps children learn English as a second language in the same manor that they learn their native language and at the same time acquire the skills they need for the 21st century and created IBI Flipped Classroom.

IBI Flipped Classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning that reverses the traditional learning environment by delivering instructional content online, outside of the classroom to be harmoniously combined with active in-class training and curriculum integrated excursion program. 

IBI Flipped Classroom is implemented in the following processes:

At home

Personalized based learning: Students learn their interactive lessons via IBI mobile and tablet learning before their classes, collaborate in online discussions, or carry out research and engage in concepts in the classroom with the guidance of a teacher.

In this process, students write down questions about the content at home and are already prepared to ask these questions to their teachers. This resulted in decreasing learning gap among students that weaker students have chances to build their confidence in reaching academic achievements. So, equal learning opportunity in the classroom is promoted!


In class

Enquiry based learning: The teacher is typically the central focus of a lesson, facilitated by IBI web-based resources combined with textbooks and the primary disseminator of information during the class period. The teacher responds to questions while students defer directly to the teacher for guidance and feedback. By this process, teachers have ability to differentiate instruction to personalize learning, while students work on problems in class. Additionally, our educators design shared, project-based experiences flexible enough to adapt to each student, based on his or her needs, interests, and approach to learning. 

IBI Flipped Classroom intentionally shifts instruction to a learner-centered model in which class time explores topics in greater depth and creates meaningful learning opportunities, while educational technologies are used to 'deliver content' outside of the classroom. 

Skill based learning: Students in the IBI Flipped Classroom not only develop all their English skills effectively but also to be trained with the skills they need for the 21st century such as communication skill, problem solving skill, critical thinking and creativity.

Particularly, Independent Learning will be also nurtured through this model. Independent learning is considered as an important ability in the 21st century because it is the precedence to instill Lifelong Learning in students.


Outdoor activities

Bring learning to life: By integrating excursion program into our curriculum, students are encouraged to apply what they have learnt into real life. 

IBI excursion program offers a valuable experience for the children to draw on several different aspects of learning; it enables children to respond to the diversities with the people they see and the different environment they are involved in. It is also essential for educators to guide their joy in being part of the world offered outside our doors.

The children are encouraged to become confident and involved learners by further developing their dispositions for learning such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, imagination and reflexivity.

"This may be the biggest untold story of education technology: When used properly, technology can amplify the human element in education.” 

(Bill Gates promoted the idea of the ‘flipped classroom" at the ACCT Leadership Congress)

"There is no single strategy that works in every classroom, for every teacher, and for each student. However, flipped learning is adaptable to your style, methods, and circumstances."

"The flipped classroom is a way to provide personalized education for all kids."

Kate Baker - Educator

"I am a big fan of the 'in-class' flip: allow students to practice self-pacing and independent learning in class rather than at home. Remember, the primary premise of Flipped Learning is to make the best use of face-to-face time with your students."

 

Flipped Classroom Facts and Figures: 

One particular case study of Clintondale High School in Clinton Township, MI shows some pretty impressive results. When a flipped model was implemented, they found:
 

  •  The English class failure rate decreased from 52% to 19%
     
  •  The Math class failure rate decreased from 44% to 13%
     
  •  The Social Studies failure rate decreased from 28% to 9%
