As technology becomes an ever more prevalent staple of students' lives, it can provide more options for teachers comfortable enough with technology to engage its educational possibilities. The flipped lesson represents one of the more drastic changes to education due to technology. In essence, the flipped classroom switches the environments wherein "class" and "homework" once took place. Teachers generate recorded lessons/lectures (video, PowerPoint, Prezzi, etc.) that students can access at home using a computer. The students watch the lesson, then in class the following day, the teacher can use the class time to practice with students while they do what would have been their "homework," providing immediate scaffolding.
This is an example of a flipped lesson I made for a pedagogy class at Albion. It includes a video for students to watch at home about a literary term I came up with called the "Critical Point." Once students are introduced to the concept through the video, they would come to class prepared to discuss and even practice the technique.
