What Is the Flipped-Classroom Model, and What Does It Look Like in K–12 Schools Today?

Armed with more educational technology and the professional development to meaningfully use it, more educators in K–12 are considering the flipped-classroom approach.

Read more about how technology and teaching techniques brought about by the pandemic pave a natural path to flipped classrooms in school districts.
