The Flipped Classroom
Of all the hot topics in education recently, nothing is more fascinating than the idea of the flipped classroom.
No! It's not about the teacher going crazy in front of her students. Neither is it about doing everything physically upside down. Flipped learning pioneer, Aaron Sams views this concept as "Teaching for tomorrow". In the flipped classroom students watch lectures at home and use class contact time to demonstrate their learning. He explains that the teacher records the direct instructions on videos which students view ahead of time so that class contact time is more active engagement by students.
