Flipped classrooms

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Flipped classrooms refers to a situation in which new technology (the internet, videos) is being used to support learning (often outside 'class time') in order to allow the teacher to spend more time interacting with pupils. Thus rather than 'class time' being used for 'teacher input' (didactic/whole class teaching) it is used for discussion, activities and interaction.

Synonymous terms include: flipped teaching; backwards classrooms; reverse instruction.
