FLIPPING THE HISTORY CLASSROOM. A PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE

The way our students learn is changing. It is undeniable that technologies have an important role in their day to day life so to ignore or relegate them to second place in the teaching-learning process would be a mistake. Flipped classroom achieves integration, without leaving aside debating activities or experiential character. With this methodology, theoretical explanations come to occupy a place outside the classroom and are taught by the teacher through videos. It is essential to the care of both the presentation and the language used, not only so they can be better understood, but also to raise students' motivation. The classes, therefore, are drawn as an area where the practice is the protagonist being materialized in review activities and settlement of the knowledge learned outside the classroom, that in traditional teaching method would have no place for lack of time.

As an example we offer a flipped classroom dedicated to Italian Fascism. To make the video we have used eduCanon, an original tool to insert questions along the projection not only to monitor the progress of our students, but also to make them aware of their learning process. Thus, in addition to the available YouTube video, is given added value and some interactivity.
