Four Ways to Flip the Primary Classroom
Flipped Teaching in the Primary School is gaining traction every day. As the classroom becomes increasingly crowded with ever expanding curriculum and national testing, teachers are looking for ways to teach efficiently while maintaining a focus on best practice pedagogy.

Challenge for video learning The biggest road block to showing videos to a class, whether it is a kindergarten or year 12 class, is maintaining student engagement. It can’t be monitored, it wastes valuable class time and it is difficult to prevent. We recognised this as a challenge for our schools worldwide and have come up with a solution.
