What's all of this about a 'flipped' classroom?

Have you been hearing about flipped classrooms? Curious as to what they are and why we might consider moving towards one?

From Harvard University to inner city Detroit to rural Colorado; from basic introductory classes to AP courses, teachers are experiencing significant improvement in student achievement transitioning to the 'Flipped Classroom' model. A side benefit is that teachers save time. The flip model represents a merger of:

  • The Socratic method where students are responsible for meaningful conversation while in class
  • Research in cognitive science that shows students need immediate feedback
  • The emergence of powerful learning online communities where student thinking can become more visible and mutually supportive

The flip model represents a significant cultural change in the traditional classroom and changing roles of student and teacher.
