Five Reasons to Flip Your Classroom

 

What is a flipped classroom?

A flipped classroom, by definition, is one where the typical lecture and homework portions are reversed.

Below are five reasons you should flip your classroom and resources to help you create flipped videos today! 

#1: Personalized Learning – In a flipped model, teachers are able to front load information critical to their subject. Then, during class time, the teacher is able to maximize time  by working with students in small groups who need additional help or allow for enrichment activities for those students who have mastered the subject.

#2: Collaboration – Peer tutoring, under the guidance of the teacher, allows students to teach their fellow classmates and learn from each other. Furthermore, class time can now be spent on collaborative, student-led projects and whole class discussion.
