How students learn is changing, just ask Aaron Sams, a Flipped Learning Pioneer. In Flipped Learning, students watch podcasts of their teacher’s lectures on their own time and then spend their time in the classroom applying what they learned at home. This allows students to learn at their own pace with the ability to pause, rewind, or watch the lecture and instructions as many times as they want. Watch as Sams shares the idea behind the model and explains how it prepares students for the future.

This is the first of six videos in the Teaching for Tomorrow series, which explores learning approaches that best prepare students for the workforce of the 21st century.

Presented by Apollo Group, Teaching for Tomorrow explores education, innovation and technology in schools through original videos and infographics.
