One of the most important benefits of flipped learning is that it takes the teacher away from the front of the room.

For those of you who don’t know, flipped learning is the attempt to take much of the instructional element out of the classroom in to the home via homework so that support of more difficult concepts and reinforcement can take place in the classroom. Making the Most of Your Flipped Classroom's In-Class Time For first-time flippers, it can be easy to get wrapped up in the initial challenges of planning and producing pre-class lecture materials, and lose sight of what that up-front effort earns you.
