‘Flipped classrooms’ provide better approach for instruction of students

Flipping a classroom means switching the activities that normally occur at home versus in the classroom. Thus, rather than listening to an instructor in the classroom, students now watch video lectures from home before coming to class. Then, instead of doing homework independently, students solve problems in the classroom, where the teacher can facilitate this critical step in learning. By taking the burden of presenting content off of teachers, a flipped classroom enables these teachers to focus their efforts on improving students’ learning skills and deeper understanding of concepts. Results are showing that students both like the flipped classroom and also tend to outperform students taught the same material in a traditional classroom.
