Self-directed Learning “A process in which students take the initiative to diagnose their learning needs, formulate learning goals, identify resources for learning, select and implement learning strategies, and evaluate learning outcomes.  The role of the instructor shifts from being the 'sage on the stage' to the 'guide on the side' in a self-directed learning environment.”

When Tech Teaches, What Do Teachers Do?  Innovative educators enjoy using high quality digital programs to support learning where they work, but it does mean their role shifts.  There are several changes in environments where technology is used to  teach.  

Flipped Classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning that reverses the traditional learning environment by delivering instructional content, often online, outside of the classroom.  It moves activities, including those that may have traditionally been considered homework, into the classroom.
