Flipping for the Flipped Classroom!

on January 19, 2012

I’ve been reading a lot about Flipped Classrooms lately.

To be honest, I didn’t really understand what the hype was about until after reading this article by Greg Green.

Now that I get it, I want in on the success! Here’s an excerpt from the article that really helped it click for me:

“By reversing our instructional procedures so that students do their homework at school, we can appropriately align our learning support and resources for all of our students, and eliminate the inequality that currently plagues our schools. When students do homework at school, they can receive a meal and access to technology (during a declining economy), and an overwhelming amount of support and expertise. When students do their homework at school, we can ensure that they will be able to learn in a supportive environment that’s conducive to their education and well-being.  For the first time in history, we can provide a level playing field for students in all neighborhoods, no matter what their financial situation is.”

Are you ready to flip your classroom? I’d love to hear from you!
