I completely agree, if they can do the work. However, I had a group of able students who had been given challenging topics to work on. There immediate approach was to go straight for the worksheet, and then come in with only a few done saying they couldn't do it. That's where the training is so important and making pupils more independent. I think this is the power of flipped learning once pupils get used to it. In the same class aboy who always struggles did exactly that. He had watched the clip for his work, had a go at the sheet, he then marked it in class and independently collected the iPad to re-watch the clip to help him understand where he had gone wrong. He then showed me his corrections and was able to create his own video clip explaining one of his corrections so I could check he really understood.

Very true. 

I think it is important to give students choices.

It was interesting to see that during revision sessions some students preferred still slides of carefully annotated solutions to videos.

Wow everyone, thanks for all the replies  It's great to hear about so many success stories with flipped learning.  My first attempt didn't go so well as half of the class didn't watch the video and so I had to re teach.  I was able to make the point that they needed to watch the film as it showed a good method of multiplying matrices which the two who had watched the video used to successful complete the questions in class.  So I whole heartedly agree with the points made about 'training' students. 

Which year group do people think is the most receptive to this kind of learning?
