The Flipped Classroom

I recently had a discussion with a new friend in a university class about flipped classrooms. This was a concept I have never heard before. He explained to me his plan of having students watch assigned math videos/lectures at home and then have students working on math while in class instead of having him lecture. I had many thoughts and questions about this idea. I was unsure if it would work. I think it could work in certain classrooms/schools. I know in my internship the students would have many excuses/reasons as to why they couldn’t watch the video – one being that not all of them had access to a computer.

I came across a great Google Doc on Twitter about Flipped Classrooms Resources by Dan Spencer
