Four Steps to Flipping the Classroom

Four Steps to Flipping the Classroom

Laura DeVaney, Managing Editor of eSchool News, offers these four steps to flipping the classroom. The link above is for a site that features the complete article. The steps are listed below:

1. Choose a topic that can be explained in 15 minutes or less.

2. Teachers should use increased class time to engage students.

3. Educators should not expect to flip every lesson.

4. Have a Plan B for students who do not have internet access at home. For those students without home internet access, DeVaney suggests that teachers can:

  • Record videos on a DVD.
  • Save videos on a flash drive for students who have computers but no internet access.
  • Help students visit the public library to access the internet there.
  • Let students play videos during the first few minutes of class during attendance and record-keeping.
  • Arrange for classroom or school computers or computer labs to be open before or after school or during lunch.

MISD high school libraries offer extended hours.
