In the flipped learning model, the focus is on learning instead of teaching, how something can be learned or studied. More responsibility is given to the learners while they still have their safety networks available. Integral parts of the model include self-assessments and support for and encouraging self-direction.
In practice, the student is given a list of tasks at the beginning of the week. The student gets to decide where, when and with whom they complete the tasks. Not all of the classes of the week are spent on completing the tasks, however, as some are allocated for the teacher’s teaching sessions. Only a few hours are allocated for this, typically (3–10 hours/week).
With Qridi, the teaching process from the teacher’s and the student’s perspective is tied in well together. Qridi’s task list feature is a comprehensive tool throughout the learning process.
The task list can be used to hand out assignments to students about their weekly tasks. The assignments are handed out in cooperation between teachers so that each teacher does not have to do it separately.
For the students, the task list both provides instructions and acts as a tool for reflecting on their work. Students evaluate their working throughout the week easily and quickly at the end of each task. Images, videos, audio clips and text can be submitted to the task card.
The data accumulated throughout the process provides a feedback platform for the teacher as well as the student and their guardians. The teacher’s interface provides a quick view of the students with whom discussions about their working need to be arranged and those who can be complimented on their working. Teachers can also give their assessments about completed tasks.
