The Flipped Classroom


The Flipped Classroom is a new approach to teaching we are embracing in Ennis Community College and Gaelcholáiste an Chláir. In a flipped classroom homework is done in school and classwork is done at home. At home students will watch videos and answer some passive questions. They will be in control of their own learning. They can pause/rewind a video etc. Homework will no longer be a scary or daunting task. At school students will engage with the content while the teacher is there to help them and challenge them.
