That suggestion makes no sense at all. Can you explain away all the problems this flipping attempt would create? I certainly agree that our school system needs to be changed, but flipping as you suggest??
What about extending the in-school hours for the student by one hour a day so that all ‘home work’ can be done and completed while in the presence of their teacher?
Home work would then always get done, learning would be accelerated and the sense of accomplishment and self-worth for every student would have to be something close to wonderful. Your thoughts?
As one of the pioneers of the flipped classroom (which started in Colorado), I encourage you to look into it more deeply as I believe this really solves many of the problems facing education. You can read more at: http://flippedlearning.org and my blog: http://jonbergmann.com
