Teachers "Doing The Flip" To Help Students Become Learners

"The way we were taught is not necessarily
the way we should be teaching students."

- Stacey Roshan, HS Algebra Teacher, Bullis School

Learning for Mastery
3 Quick Videos Below

It's called "flip teaching" and "reverse teaching" or a "backwards classroom" (who knew?), and "reverse instruction." Here's how it's happening, for real:Kids watch lectures and videos at home Class is for hands-on work and face-to-face interaction with teacher/peers

So why has this method become such a booming topic in education?

The days of the teacher as "sage on the stage" are numbered. Instead, the teacher becomes the "guide on the side" where students are using the class/school experience as a fully interactive experience WITH the teacher - - instead of the teacher being the one-way traditional talking head. This way, students are asking questions and solving problems with the teacher or fellow students - instead of just sitting compliantly and listening - where the teacher can spend more time addressing specific questions and personalized attention, rather than just the one-size-fits-all lecture.

This is called "mastery", not unlike advancing in sports or the arts . . .one advances to the next step after having proven mastery of certain skills and proficiency, not just based upon age or grade level.

Who else thinks "being flip in education" is a good thing?
HS Science Teacher Aaron Sams is doing it (video #1 below).HS Algebra Teacher Stacey Roshan, from the Bullis School in Md., is doing it by flipping homework being done in class with the "lectures" being watched and reviewed at home. (video #2 below).HS Science Teacher Jon Bergman, is walking the talk (video #3 below).
Professor Karl Fisch is doing it, and calls it "The Future of Education".Author Daniel Pink is talking about it in the UK with his Flip Thinking post.Bill Gates is promoting it. His insight starts at the 6:45 mark.Author Seth Godin is writing about it and suggesting we push back on mediocre professors.You may understand it when you see videos like this.

". . . teachers who helpstudents become learners,
who can learn FOR themselves and BY themselves."
- teacher Aaron Sams
