Flipped Learning for Beginners

What is it?

Flipped Learning is changing the traditional workflow dynamic in your classroom. What was formerly homework (AKA independent practice) will now be done in the room with the expert (YOU!). What was formerly "lecture" (AKA one-way direct instruction) is now done at home through a video lesson. Students will still listen, take notes, and do work, just in a different venue or order or format.
