Jonathan Bergann and Aaron Sams are two science teachers from Woodland Park, South Dakota who are leading a revolution in instruction called “The Flipped Class.” Stated simply, their method involves flipping what happens in the classroom with what happens at home. Rather than lecture live, they make videos for their student to watch at home. Class time is spent working with students to better understand the material covered in the videos.

Since she began ‘flipping’ lectures and homework assignments, high school science teacher Shelley Wright has noticed something: the number of students failing her course has dropped from the usual three to zero. Departmental exam scores are higher, too. Wright, who teaches grades 10, 11, and 12 at Cornerstone Christian School in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, is one of a growing number of converts to the practice of inverting—or flipping—the daytime class lecture, on the one hand, and nighttime reading and problem-solving homework, on the other. When Wright teaches, she introduces a topic in class through activities or groupwork, and then asks students to watch a related lecture from the not-for-profit tutorial creator Khan Academy or from the TED conference website for homework. Instead of filing into the class the next day for a lecture, students are prepped to apply what they’ve learned. Harvard Education Letter
Concluded in August, 2013. The FIZZ method refers to the use of extraordinarily simple video recording techniques that educators can use to transform teaching and learning. This method can be used to successfully flip the classroom by having teachers film and reflect on their lecture content. These teacher-created videos give students the ability to watch the lecture outside of the classroom, freeing up class time that can be used to challenge students to think critically and creatively. FIZZ provides a more rigorous and relevant education for a new generation of learners.
