*flipped learning*project. Instead of giving traditional homework, the students do some preparatory study in advance via the internet. This year our college is entering all GCSE maths students for the Higher tier. However there is not enough room in the syllabus to teach everything possible to students who traditionally would be aiming for a C grade at best. This is where flipped learning comes in. In theory students do the simpler, ground work at home, then teachers concentrate on extending the group with the grade A*-B topics in class. http://www.knewton.com/flipped-classroom/

As a teacher trying out flipped learning, I found it to be a slow start. At first some of my class would do the tasks but not all. So, it seemed to defeat the purpose of the flipped learning as only some of the class were prepared for the lesson.

Thank you for your observation Rita. I think with every new idea you throw at students, it will take time to embed. Repetition is the key. How's it going for me? Tell you soon..
