Oltman Middle School teachers ready to 'flip' their classrooms
This summer, seven Oltman Middle School teachers are learning to "flip the classroom," with the help of a $9,800 3M grant.
In the flipped classroom, students do their homework, using iPods, ahead of the class. Finding information suggested by the teacher, students bring what they learn to the next day's class. Teachers, who add information and help students through the lesson, are no longer the sole keepers of information. They guide students toward solutions.
