What’s A Flipped Classroom?

When you think of a classroom, what comes to mind? Students, teachers, lectures? There’s a new classroom style that’s growing in popularity where that lecture portion may be a bit less of the classroom experience. It’s called a Flipped Classroom.

If you’re wondering what a Flipped Classroom entails, look no further than this fantastic new infographic from Knewton.

    I would be interested to know how well this method works with an inclusive student population.

    Aren’t these the same ideas that Paulo Freire had half a century ago with collaborative learning.

    I also don’t think they’re new ideas. Back in the day, in my more challenging courses (maybe 2 or three all told) we used to read stuff before we came to class… we were accountable for understanding it.

    I don’t think this is any kind of magic, especially given all the excitement over Khan’s videos which are great for his daughter, but …since when is quantity more important than quality? Check out his “introduction to averages” — he calls multiplication “sum” and explains that averages can sort of ” represent” a group of numbers. I was really *hoping* this was a resource I could recommend to my students but… no thanks.
