Teachers are finding that flipped instruction engages students.
What does flipped instruction look like? Imagine a school where students are engaged, working on their own level, and at their own pace. You literally hit the rewind button if you dont understand something, or fast forward ahead if you do.
If students are out sick, they don’t have to fall behind. Even if you did everything wrong with homework, there’s always a place where someone will walk you through the process.
In a flipped classroom, your teacher helps you with what used to be homework. Your homework is to watch and listen to instruction and lectures via online access.
In Dare County, high schools are viewing classrooms in new ways. “It’s hot right now, and everyone is talking about it,” says Manteo High School Principal John Luciano of the new tool that many in academia say “is turning education on its head.”
Educators say that flipping instruction frees teachers from lecturing so they can assist students individually. The instruction is available outside the classroom, which means that teachers are resources for students.
