Introduction to Flipped Classroom
"If you can be replaced by a YouTube video, then maybe you should be."
- Jon Bergmann
The flipped classroom concept focuses on changing students from passive to active learners by using a variety of technologies to deliver basic understanding of class content. This will allow the instructor to use face-to-face instructional time to use case studies and other methods to teach deeper concepts of the subject matter.
The “flipped classroom” should achieve each of the following objectives:
- Increase interaction and personal contact time between the instructor and the student
- Students must take responsibility for their own learning
- Blending direct instruction with constructive learning (i.e., one in which I am not so much the expert but rather guiding students to their own understanding of the content)
- Content is archived for review or remediation
- All students are engaged in their learning
- Students can get a personalized education
