Lyceum Education was started to create a suite of flipped classroom videos that most teachers would love to use but don’t have the time to create. The flipped classroom works on the theory that the old model of teaching a lesson during the day and practicing the lessons at home during homework is backwards. Students should learn the lesson the night before and practice the lesson with the teacher present to help them with any problems they may have. This way provides faster learning for the students and less frustration when some part of the lesson isn’t understood.
Lyceum seeks to create a suite of lesson for middle and high school that will cover all the lesson of the four core subjects (English, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science) that can be used eventually to allow almost any teacher to work in a completely flipped classroom model.
These lessons can also be used by any home schooling parent to supplement their own at home education by offering quality lessons for subjects that may require specific knowledge the parent may not be comfortable with.
As these lessons will only cover the knowledge and comprehension levels of learning they do not replace the need for a teacher or parent in the education process, they only allow them more time to focus on the deeper level learning that student need adult help with to progress to their full potential.
With the 900,000 we are requesting your help to raise, we will be able to buy the equipment needed to film and edit these video and the salaries needed to support 4 teachers and 1 video editor for 2 years while we create the initial part of the entire suite. We believe that in 2 years we can provide enough lessons to make this marketable and then allow sales to fund the further creation of all the lessons teachers could possibly need.
This is something I feel extremely passionate about and I know that the people involved in this project will do amazing things.
