Flipping Classrooms!

I love the name and the concept – flip what students learn in the classroom.    Instead of teaching them the theory in the classroom and then have them do “homework” or “back in the office work” to put the theory in practice – flip these two.

Give them the theory as texts, articles or short lectures that they can read and watch online or on their phones in their own time.  Then use the classroom time to do the hard stuff, putting the concepts into practice.

Check out the Kahn Academy and get inspired.
