Flipped #IPACALearn

Broadcast on Wednesday 1st October, 2014, BBC Radio 4's 'The Educators' focused on Salman Khan, the man behind the world-famous Khan Academy.

 In the programme, full episode available here, Salman Khan talks about how and why he set up the not-for-profit organisation. He tells Sarah Montague why he believes lesson time in school could be spent more effectively if the explanation of new ideas is done at home, with students watching video lectures, in a process known as 'flipped learning'.

 The programme features a lesson at the Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy taken by one of our Joint Interim Principals Mr. Marklew. In the lesson, Mr. Marklew uses Khan Academy to support his Year 8 pupils understanding of the 'Nth Term'. See below for a short extract -
