DOVER, Del.- A new wave of teaching is coming to one Kent County school. Students will soon be able to watch pre-recorded lesson plans before coming to class.

Staci Callahan teaches 6th and 7th grade at Campus Community School in Dover. She is one of five teachers at the school who will soon be incorporating a new style of teaching called a "Flipped Classroom."

"I actually have them go online and I would send them a link and they would watch a lesson," said Callahan.

Callahan says that lesson could be on prime numbers, fractions or any other type of math problems.

The idea came from principal Leroy Travers after seeing the teaching model at a school in suburban DC.
   
"These students are different than students that came through the school even five years ago. their hooked to their phones and their iPads and their computers so the idea is to utilize those tools that they have at home and maximize their class times," said Travers.   

Students will receive a video of their classroom that they can watch at home on their computers or smartphones.  

The next day students will do their homework in class.

"The idea is that you're utilizing the time a student has in the classroom instead of having them do all of this work at home that you can't really monitor," said Callahan.
     
Travers says he's hoping parents get involved.
     
"I think by the end of this we'll have a learning community that's really centered around family and an academic environment," said Travers.

Teachers will receive training over the next few weeks before they begin flipping their classrooms.
