The Flipped Classroom

Many of the tools we’re examining this week make it possible for educators to employ non-traditional content delivery and classroom organization methods. When combined, new presentation tools, online learning software, content curators, and streaming video platforms allow educators to shift the information delivery portion of instruction outside of the classroom and use the classroom for application. This trend, generally known as the ‘flipped classroom,’ has led to more student-centered approaches, which tend to produce better learning outcomes. This infograph from Knewton provides some numbers to put the ‘flipped classroom’ into context:

One thought on “The Flipped Classroom

  1. I have been working with some faculty on flipping their classes. Of course, it is much more complicated than simply adding videos to homework. It is a total redesign of a curriculum to provide short chunked videos for review before a problem-based class.
