What if we could change learning in the classroom to better suit students’ needs and accommodate individual learning styles? That’s exactly what Denton Independent School District in Texas is doing through flipped learning and collaborative video technology.

This provides the flexibility desired by students, enabling them to easily connect with teachers, re-watch content and learn at their own pace.
