SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - When Timmy Nguyen comes to his pre-calculus class, he's already learned the day's lesson - he watched it on a short online video prepared by his teacher for homework.

So without a lecture to listen to, he and his classmates at Segerstrom Fundamental High School in Santa Ana spend class time doing practice problems in small groups while teacher Crystal Kirch buzzes from desk to desk to help pupils having trouble.

It's a technology-driven teaching method known as "flipped learning" because it flips the time-honored model of classroom lecture and exercises for homework - the lecture becomes homework and class time is for practice.

Flipped learning apparently is catching on in schools across the nation as a younger, more tech-savvy generation of teachers is moving into classrooms.
