The Flipped classroom is now being embraced by a number of schools. For example, this teacher felt her current teaching was ineffective for every student as one of the reasons why she flipped her Math class.

Practitioners who have used this have found that, 

* Students are engaged with their learning* Easier to differentiate groups during class time+ to stretch more able students
+ help students who learn at a slower pace

However, it does have challenges, including:

* It can take time initially to create all the resources
* Not all students have access to technology
* Not all students will watch the video before class
The idea when trying the Flipped Classroom sounds like a huge commitment, however it is best to start small with just one class.

A starter for 10 could be...

* Initially watching the videos in class time whilst encouraging the students to write notes, to ask to pause or rewind if they don't understand with a group discussion.
* When the videos are to be watched at home, ensure the students know when and where in college they could access the videos if they have no technology themselves.
* If the students haven't watched the video, don't change your lesson. Have a back-up where they will go the back of the class, watch the video and maybe complete a quiz or worksheet to show they have done so. They can then join in with the group activities.
There is help and support available in the college, contact the learning technologist (Jane Lomas).
