Teachers are searching for ways to focus on engaging students in authentic, complex and powerful problem solving experiences for learning, unpacking content and demonstrating understanding and knowledge.

What is a flipped classroom? (in 60 seconds) Last week, I plopped down for Sunday brunch in New York City with some non-edu obsessed friends and acquaintances I had not seen in a long time. About 10 seconds after our formal greetings, the person sitting across from me leaned forward and said, “So…not to be too business like, but what is a flipped classroom?” Surprised, I tilted my head and narrowed my eyes quizzically, the person sitting two seats over followed up with a smile and explanation: “We follow you on LinkedIn.”

3 Ways to Flip the Classroom I’ve always been tickled by our industry’s obsession with buzzwords and trends. There have been many in my 30-plus years in this industry.

chemicalsams: There Is No Such Thing as THE Flipped Class The term "Flipped Classroom" is being thrown around a lot lately in both positive and negative light. I think the term is a bit ambiguous and does not fully do justice to all that is being done under the guise of the Flipped Classroom.

The Flipped Classroom FAQ Twelve months ago, had I asked just about anyone on my campus about the idea of the “flipped classroom,” they would have looked at me wondering what I was talking about. A lot has changed in the last year, however, thanks in large part to stories in the Chronicle of Higher Education about the flipped classroom approach and related technologies.
