Upside down and inside out: Flip Your Classroom to Improve Student Learning
Fulton, Kathleen
Learning & Leading with Technology, v39 n8 p12-17 Jun-Jul 2012
Educators are notorious for jumping on passing fads and chasing the newest innovations, from the open classrooms of the 1970s to the one-laptop-per-student initiatives of the past decade. It is not surprising that when the next new thing--the flipped classroom--hit the hallways of America's schools, it was met with hesitation and skepticism from teachers, parents, and educational critics. The "flipped" part of the flipped classroom means that students watch or listen to lessons at home and do their "homework" in class. This article describes how Byron High School in Minnesota, USA, has embraced the flipped classroom concept to ensure students have 24/7 access to extraordinary teaching.
