What Flipping Enables
Students to do
• Students can pause and rewind and re-watch
lessons, truly learning at their own pace.
• Students can access the content for their classes
anytime, anywhere, on any device.
• Students don’t have to worry about getting behind
when they are gone.
• Students become active learners and self-reflective,
knowing when they need to rewind or pause the
material to make sure they understand.
• Students can review material from the course at
any time during the year and receive the same
instruction they received the first time.
Enables Students (Cont.)
• Students who are proficient can work ahead on
lessons and challenge themselves.
• Students can work in groups and with the teacher
to collaborate and make meaning of the content
delivered via video.
• Students can take charge and be in full control of
their learning.

Final Thoughts…
• This is a work in progress.
• Increasing the 1:1 time.
• Students need to be transitioned.
• It’s not always the right instructional choice
• You don’ t have to fully flip your classroom.
• Don’t look at flipping as a way to get more material
• Flipping can work in any subject area!
“With all this….
…..Remembering that the ‘Flipped Classroom’ is
a work in progress and using this ideology has the
ultimate goal of increasing student understanding and
ownership of the content. This may look a little
different in every class, this may look a little different
every year…but I will constantly be striving to find
ways to help support my students in their learning and
help them to develop into reflective, responsible, and
self-directed learners!”
