Flipping the classroom means looking at the learning process from a totally different perspective. Instead of teaching a lesson during class time and assigning homework to practice what they have learned during class, students view videos and post discussion questions while at home after school. The next day, students come back into class, they go over the discussions and then apply what they have learned the night before during class time. The entire class time is spent with the teacher actually helping you master the class material. Students move at their own pace.
