A "flipped classroom" or "flipped teaching" is teaching approach that encourages you to use your home based technology, smartphone and tablet to learn course curriculum at your own pace. You can also send your questions to your teacher 24/7. This way we can make the best use of class time for leadership, peer sharing, coaching and teaching, guest speakers and giving you opportunities for group and one on one help from your teacher.
"Flip your instruction so that students watch and listen to your lectures… for homework, and then use your precious class-time for what previously, often, was done in homework: tackling difficult problems, working in groups, researching, collaborating, crafting and creating. Classrooms become laboratories or studios, and yet content delivery is preserved.

"The advantage of the flipped classroom is that the content, often the theoretical/lecture-based component of the lesson, becomes more easily accessed and controlled by the learner. "
