  • Flipped classrooms let teachers coach, students learn at their own pace

    Tech-savvy students are redefining the definitions of “homework” and “schoolwork.”  Traditionally, students learn in the classroom and reinforce their learning at home through homework.  A new movement called “blended” or “flipped” learning is turning the old model on its head. 

    “Blended learning means that you blend some direct teaching with computer-based activities,” Kathryn Winn Principal Gerda Wise said.
