The Flipped Classroom: An Opportunity to Engage Millennial Students through Active Learning Strategies
Roehl, Amy; Reddy, Shweta Linga; Shannon, Gayla Jett
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v105 n2 p44-49 2013
"Flipping" the classroom employs easy-to-use, readily accessible technology in order to free class time from lecture. This allows for an expanded range of learning activities during class time. Using class time for active learning versus lecture provides opportunities for greater teacher-to-student mentoring, peer-to-peer collaboration and cross-disciplinary engagement. This review of literature addresses the challenges of engaging today's students in lecture-based classrooms and presents an argument for application of the "flipped classroom" model by educators in the disciplines of family and consumer sciences.
