New Way to Learn: Michigan Classrooms Flipping Out [VIDEO]
Technology has changed the way we work, the way we interact with friends, and now the way students learn.
The ‘Flipped-Classroom’ model turns traditional classroom methods upside down. Rather than receiving instruction in class through a lecture, students are getting video-based instruction, often at home. Class time is devoted to discussing and applying the material.
One Michigan school is reporting tremendous success.
Clintondale High School in Detroit is the first school in Michigan to use the Flipped-Classroom model for all of its classes. Administrators say the practice is keeping kids from falling through the cracks, and that the school has reduced its classroom failure rate by 34%.
