    UPDATE: I have been doing this for several years now and I have found Blended Learning is the way to go instead of true Flipped Learning. However, I still think the idea is great. The goal is to be a facilitator not a preacher. :-) If you would like more information or ideas from my experiences, just send me an email.
    What is Flipped Learning?
    This is a teaching style that makes your classroom more student centered & allows time for real learning. In a typical classroom, teachers will provide information on the basics and then send students home with homework. During class, there is little time for reinforcement, inquiry, and depth. Flipped learning has the students learning the basics at home via technology. This might include viewing interactive tutorials, PowerPoints, vodcasts, screencasts and so forth. Then, when the students come to class there is more time for them to ask questions, do inquiry, and have reinforcement that students need to actually learn the material...not just memorize it for the test. (If they even do that!) Flipped learning also answers to the name of inverted learning and reverse instruction. It has been championed by two science teachers in Colorado, Mr. Bergmann & Mr. Sams.
