This article describes a European project that involves a consortium of 8 partners in the education field. The GainTime project aims and objectives are to develop professional and pedagogic competences among teachers and trainers. It intends to enhance Information and Communication Technology uptake, through the support of learning and access to open educational resources with the aims to combine higher levels of excellence and attractiveness with increased opportunities for all. The consortium also intends to develop an online course that teaches teachers about how to innovate in their classroom, specially using flipped classroom and games supported on Open Education Resources. The target of the project is secondary education. This paper describes the results of the first two outputs of this project: the development of a compendium of best practices about creative classroom and game learning and also the development of a handbook of a flipped classroom.

La clase al revés

Alejandro Sánchez, de 10 años, aprende al revés. Las tareas que antes hacía en casa ahora las realiza en el colegio; las lecciones que antes escuchaba en el aula ahora las sigue desde su habitación con la ayuda del ordenador. Su jornada escolar, en realidad, empieza cada día a las cinco de la tarde.

Después de la merienda, este fan de Star Wars que de mayor quiere ser científico se conecta al blog de la clase. Allí su profesor ha colgado varios vídeos en los que explica, por ejemplo, las fracciones mediante dibujos de frutas. O muestra con animaciones las diferencias entre el lexema y el morfema y la coma y el punto y coma. Alejandro los ve y toma apuntes. Si hay algo que no entiende, rebobina y vuelve a darle al play.

Al día siguiente, llega al colegio público Alcalde de Móstoles, en el barrio madrileño de Aluche, y lleva a la práctica todo lo que ha aprendido en los vídeos. Hace trabajos en grupo, elabora esquemas, convierte los apuntes a un formato audiovisual y pregunta sus dudas. Es lo que se conoce como flipped classroom o aula invertida, una metodología de aprendizaje que el profesor Alberto Alameda ha ido implantando poco a poco en las asignaturas de Matemáticas y Lengua de su grupo de 5º de Primaria.
