What is “Flipping”? • Flipping is a technique where teachers post digital content for students to watch at home – Videos – Podcasts • Students come to class the next day with some clue as to what is being taught • Instead of lecture, students engage in – Cooperative learning – Projects – Class discussions
  5. 5. Why Flip? • Flipping reduces the amount of class time spent on lecture – More time available for other activities • Students do their “homework” under the supervision of their teacher, not at home alone • Teachers can differentiate their lessons for students of all ability levels – Repetition helps students transfer information to long term memory
