Modern technology has spurred on a new trend in education: flipped classrooms. In a flipped classroom, students watch lectures and supplemental materials for their classes at home, usually pre-recorded by their instructors and uploaded to the web.
Brian Bennett -- Popular media sees the flipped classroom as video being used in the classroom to teach children. I would like to state again that video can be used in the classroom to help differentiate for all learners. The flipped classroom started this way, but it has evolved into so much more than using videos in the class when implemented effectively.
Aaron Sams -- The Flip has many faces, and the term "Flipped Classroom" has certain connotations that do not do justice to the amazing educational uses of screencasting technology. When Jonathan Bergmann and I began promoting the idea of using screencasting as an educational tool in 2006-2007, we struggled to know what to call the tool. At that time we settled on the name (and website URL) Educational Vodcasting.
Flipping the classroom has transformed our teaching practice. We no longer stand in front of our students and talk at them for thirty to sixty minutes at a time. This radical change has allowed us to take on a different role with our students.
