RESOURCE: Homework & the Flipped Class
What about educators who don’t assign homework? Can, and should, they still flip their classroom? Of course! Many teachers are creating instructional videos (or using other videos) and having students watch them during class time. Instead of the whole class watching the videos together, students are watching them when they need the content. The videos multiply the teacher in that she can be in many places at the same time. This frees her up to go around and help individual kids in areas of need.
In summary, I believe flipped learning is homework agnostic. Flipped learning doesn’t take a position on whether or not homework is good or bad. So if an educator believes there is value in assigning homework, then they can used flipped learning. Conversely, if they believe that homework should never be assigned to students, they can used flipped learning as well.
