“Flipping the Classroom”

I had heard the term ‘Flipping’ used over the course of my studies, but only recently bothered to look into what  it means and how it can benefit teaching in the classroom. Flipping is basically changing the approach to teaching so that students can access the direct instruction related to a topic/subject, which is posted to a web page or blog, in their own time and at their own pace, allowing more time during formal class schedules for the teacher and students to work more constructively on the application of that knowledge. This means that students who are typically struggling to keep up with content delivery in the classroom, as well as advanced students who are looking for more, can both be catered for and not miss out on teaching aimed at them. Have a look at this link for more information and explanation. Well worth considering!
