This column shares web tools that support learning. This month’s issue examines one approach to flipping the classroom.
Flipping your classroom means creating lecture videos that are viewed by students on the internet rather than sitting in live class lectures. It is quicker to present material this way and teachers don't have to repeat themselves in class after class. It opens up more time in class for collaboration and discussion. Studies show that it improves student scores. This article has a website that has instructions for teachers on how to do flipping effectively.

The article looks at the FIZZ approach to flipping the classroom, but nowhere identifies what FIZZ stands for. I searched the resources given and didn’t have much luck identifying what the acronym stood for. That was irritating.
McCammon is an advocate for the flipped classroom and lists efficiency, improving the life of the teacher, strengthening relationships, improves the quality of teaching, use class time for collaboration, differentiate instruction and allows for blended instruction.
Using the FIZZ model, teachers create their own custom lectures, use class time for collaboration, and differentiate for more personalized learning. Flipped Classroom Training Program: http://go.ncsu.edu/fctp is a listed resource that provides a variety of Youtube videos to further understand the process of flipping and FIZZ.
