New York technology teacher and trainer Rob Zdrojewski is flipping the flipped classroom–or, rather, his students are.
Using a video technology known as screencasting, Zdrojewski, who will host two workshops at the upcoming FETC Conference in January, turns the popular phrase on its head by asking his students at Amherst Middle School to create instructional videos for their teachers.
“The term ‘flip your classroom’ is really for the teachers to flip the classroom for the students, but this is like flipping the professional development for your staff–but having students teach the teachers,” Zdrojewski says. “It’s another catchphrase we’ve been using.”
