It started with a simple observation: Students need their teachers present to answer questions or to provide help if they get stuck on an assignment; they don’t need their teacher present to listen to a lecture or review content. From there, Bergmann and Sams began the flipped classroom. They found that their students demonstrated a deeper understanding of the material than ever before.
What is Flipped Learning?
In short, flipping the classroom simply means using classroom time to allow students to do what they generally do outside of class (i.e. homework) AND using home time to allow students to do what they generall do inside of class (i.e. watch or listen to lectures).
