Flipped Classroom Information


The Flipped Classroom model sets students up for success by exposing students to content before class so that during class time, students can collaboratively interact with the content at a deeper level with the support of their peers and teacher.

In a remote model, teachers may expose students to the content via independent readings, watching videos, watching pre-recorded lectures, and then when students meet together online, they can work on higher cognitive tasks with their classmates and teacher.

This diagram shows a comparison of a "traditional" classroom model and the flipped classroom model.

In a traditional model, students are exposed to the content during class and then expected to interact and apply that content at a higher level independently after class without support.

In comparison, in a flipped classroom, students are exposed to the content before class time so they can do the more cognitively taxing work of interacting with and applying the content with the support of their classmates and teacher during class time.
