Critics say it's just a fad, relies too heavily on rote instruction, and doesn't go far enough in making the needed changes for teaching and learning reform. I've rounded up this list of videos so you can learn more about the challenges and benefits of flipped classrooms.

Chris Cummings: Why English Is No Longer Enough As the number of Hispanics in the U.S. climbs -- now having surpassed the 50 million mark -- the economy is undergoing seismic shifts.
