The flipped classroom is an expression that’s been around since 2007 when Aaron Sams and Jonathan Bergman introduced the concept to the world in their book, Flip Your Classroom. While the term evokes an image of chairs and desks on the ceiling, the actual methodology is not so different. By reversing the standard teaching blueprint and conducting lectures at home and homework in the classroom, students are empowered to learn at their own pace while absorbing information not only from their teacher, but from their fellow classmates.
Anthony Padrnos, official mathematics genius, and John Wetter, technical services manager at Hopkins Public Schools in MN, have been successfully using the Casper Suite to implement the flipped model in their environments. By utilizing Self Service, and through the power of supervision, students have easy and access to their lesson plans in a manner that is both effective and empowering.
