  • 10. What the flip is a flipped classroom? The flipped classroom constitutes a role change for instructors who give up their front-of-the-class position in favor of a more collaborative and cooperative contribution to the teaching process. There is also a change in the role of students who are used to being passive participants in the education process, where instruction is served to them. The flipped model puts more of the responsibility for learning on the shoulders of students and also provides differentiation for those students.-Bobby Blount Assistant Superintendent of Accountability,Technology and Strategic Planning
