Teachers Flip for ‘Flipped Learning’ Class Model

When Timmy Nguyen comes to his pre-calculus class, he’s already learned the day’s lesson — he watched it on a short online video prepared by his teacher for homework.

So without a lecture to listen to, he and his classmates at Segerstrom Fundamental High School spend class time doing practice problems in small groups, taking quizzes, explaining the concept to other students, reciting equation formulas in a loud chorus, and making their own videos while teacher Crystal Kirch buzzes from desk to desk to help pupils who are having trouble.

CERT‘s insight:

I would also suggest taking a look at the Khan Academy (http://www.khanacademy.org/) to see how the flipped classroom can actually work in a curricular setting. The Khan Academy website has thousands of videos to choose from for teaching and learning.
