Teaching In a 
Flipped Classroom

With the growth of quality instructional videos like those found on MobileVideoDIY.com and other sites, teachers can use the flipped classroom approach that gives them more hands on time with students.

Lisa Birkley is yearbook adviser at Highlands Middle School in Fort Thomas, Ky. She writes in the Idea File for Wadsworth Yearbooks about her move to using a Flipped Classroom "built on the idea of using teacher-made videos to give the lesson to the student at home. The student then comes to class and practices this concept with the teacher right there. Students can watch the video as many times as they like, and parents and absent students can watch it, too. This sets up students for success."
