An investigation of the impact of flipped instruction and instructional order
In this investigation, the questions addressed were, what effect on learning and visual attention does order of inquiry and direct instruction have? Does the location of instruction between in-class and flipped screencast videos have an effect on learning? Data was collected using web-cam video and pre-test and post-test scores from two similar units: the atom and acid-base chemistry. Classes were given a combination of two conditions: inquiry first compared to direct instruction first and in-class direct instruction compared to flipped screencast direct instruction. The results were compared using a one-way ANOVA and paired t-tests. Additionally, student survey questions were used to determine student preference. Analysis of the effect on learning resulted in no significant differences observed in any of the treatments. A significant improvement in student reported attention level when viewing flipped lessons.
