Lisa Johnson, technology resource teacher in the Jefferson County (KY) Public School District, created The 180 Degree Classroom, in which teacher and students switch roles. High school students create “teaching modules” for content traditionally taught by the teacher. While students prepare and learn from the teaching modules, the teacher focuses on providing classroom experiences that incorporate the lessons learned through the modules. Students use a tablet PC to prepare lessons as the teacher supports the self-directed learning, and then can view the lessons. The 180 Classroom currently is being piloted in pre-Calculus classes at a district high school.
