Flipping the classroom is a method of instruction that involves teachers creating short snippets of instruction on video (usually 5 to 15 minutes) and posting them online for students to watch at home. The videos encapsulate the important concepts of a lesson. By watching at home for “homework,” students and teachers can spend more quality time together in the classroom working individually or in groups.
Or, at least, that’s the theory.
Many teachers have thoroughly embraced the Flipped model. Others are more skeptical. Whatever side of the debate you are on, you will want to take a look at the archive from last week’s #DENChat located here.
This week Tim Childers will lead a discussion on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Science). What is it? Is it for everyone? Why would we integrate it across disciplines? And more. Join us Thursday, May 9, at 8 PM EST.
