RESOURCE: The Flipped Classroom Guide for Teachers
Unlike the traditional classroom model, a Flipped Classroom puts students in charge of their own learning. By providing lectures online, educators give students the opportunity to learn at their own pace. Once a student masters a concept, he can move on. Also, students who need more time to master a concept won’t get left behind.
This means all students are not working on the same area at the same time in and out of the classroom. In the Flipped Classroom environment, the teacher becomes the guide off to the side, acting as more of facilitator, helping and guiding small groups and individuals toward learning success.
