A growing number of teachers are digitally recording lessons, uploading them to iTunes, and assigning them as homework. It’s the latest way that technology is changing teachers’ jobs, and tech-savvy educators refer to it as “flipped” or “upside-down” classes. Teachers who are implementing flipped classrooms say they offer greater control of material and enable them to spend more one-on-one time with their students.
“It’s about chinging the dynamic of how you deliver the instruction,” says Roshan, who teaches at the private Bullis School near Washington, D.C. She began flipping her AP calculus classes last fall after finding she couldn’t cover all of the required material.
