Gonzalez, a teacher, author, and blogger, shares her vision of how the In-Class model can in effect be an alternative for those teachers who want to adopt the program but might face adversities such as lack of technology, parental support, students' buy-in, etc. She explains,
- "An In-Class Flip works like this. Just like with a traditional flip, the teacher pre-records direct instruction, say in a video lecture. But instead of having students view the content at home, that video becomes a station in class that small groups rotate through. The rest of their time is spent on other activities -independent work and group work- with some activities related to the lesson and others focusing on different course content. As with a traditional flip, the direct instruction runs on its own, which frees te teacher for more one-on-one time with students."
This blended model offers an alternative configuration for delivering and differentiating instruction, while incorporating technology in a meaningful way.
