    Flipped Classroom

    What Is A Flipped Classroom?

    In the traditional classroom model, teachers first explain each topic, and then assign homework. In the flipped classroom model, students first view the topics outside of class, and then use class time for inquiry-based learning, which in some ways resembles traditional homework assignments.

     

    A flipped or reversed classroom uses educational technologies to leverage valuable classroom time. Once students have covered material traditionally covered in lectures outside of the classroom, teachers can focus on learning-based activities in the classroom, and also deliver more one-on-one, customized assistance.

     

    In the following video, Salman Khan discusses how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos. Khan Academy began many years ago as an extensive series of videos covering a broad math curriculum. Later, it branched out to cover a stunning array of diverse subjects, including science, technology, economics, and the humanities. In addition to videos, Khan also demonstrates the power of interactive exercises, and calls upon teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script. He suggests providing students with video lectures that they can watch at home, followed by having the students do their “homework” in the classroom, where the teacher is available to help. This has many advantages, and has become a hot topic of both conversation and careful experimentation among the educational community.

    OTTMAN 2

    INTRODUCTION:

     

    In all of history, the Ottoman Empire was one of the biggest, longest lasting empires.  Located in one the world’s largest Muslim populations, Istanbul, Turkey, then Constantinople (capital), Islam influenced all aspects of their lifestyle, such as culture, politics, and expectations. This civilization was sired by one of the most powerful leaders in history, Osman I in the year 1299.  During The Ottoman Empires existence, they reined over three continents; Asia, Africa, and Europe. They fought important battles such as the Battle of Chaldrian, The Battle of Mohacs, and The War of Crimean. These important moments in the empire’s history can be seen through the wars they engaged in and diplomatic efforts in their foreign affairs

    Culture was based on Islam and religion affected all aspects of their lifestyle. Their Political high points and low points with Arab and European countries made them well known. Lastly, their civilization ended in 1923 due to lack of modern systems.

    RADHWA INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL AMERICAN GIRLS SECTION:

    At Radhwa International School American Girls Section Yanbu we paid a rich tribute to the glory of Muslims during Ottoman Empire Era. We celebrated this theme during our Annual International Day celebrations. The event was held on 2nd, 3rd and 4th of March in Al-Nakheel campus.

    The event was inaugurated on 2nd March by The Head of Private and Foreign Education  Mrs. Fatimah Al-Rehali and Foreign Education Supervisor, Mrs. Nadia Al Ghamdi.

    Their presence was a great honor of us and their appreciation for all fine details of the event was a tremendous source of encouragement and motivation for Radhwa staff members and students.

    The event consisted of two phases. In first phase we depicted the era through different themes. For that purpose different corners representing highlights of the Ottoman Empire were assigned to teachers and students.

    Simultaneously in second phase there were performances by our dear students to pay rich tribute to the culture prevailing at that time. We are tremendously thankful to our General Supervisor Mrs. Eman Al-Sayed for making this dream come true and for all the support and guidance she provided.  Around 400 visitors attended the celebrations for three evenings. Magnificent and Splendid response was received from all aspects of Yanbu community.OTTMAN

    The event was pre-eminently qualified to elaborate and was talk of town for many days. We are thankful to Turkish Airlines as there was a lucky draw for a free ticket to any destination in Turkey. Such events are of great importance from educational point of view and provide a good source of entertainment for the community. We look forward to more such events in future.
