Tech Talk: Local school 'flips' traditional teaching method

Clintondale High School in Clinton Township is one of the first schools in the country to go digital when it comes to the way instruction is delivered to students.
The school was one of the lowest performing schools in Michigan when they decided to 'flip' their classrooms.
Now, teachers record their lessons online for kids to watch outside of school and class time is used to do homework.
Principal Greg Green says flipping gives the school a chance to optimize time for students and staff.
"School is where the experts and resources are," he says.
Green goes on to say "kids have more free time after school then they do in school. So why not utilize those two things?"
Prior to the change, the school had a 35% failure rate.
But now they're seeing success.
For example, one in two students were failing Freshman math.
But after flipping, the rate dropped to one in ten students.
