Flipped classrooms turn learning around

One of the newest trends to hit South Florida classrooms, “flipped learning” combines new technologies with one very old idea: homework. But this is homework with a twist. Instead of lecturing in class and assigning problems to be done at home, teachers use technology to “flip” the model. Students first learn about a concept by watching an online video or using another resource at home. In class, they do work based on the information they learned the night before.
