Students prepare for class by watching video, listening to podcasts, reading articles, or contemplating questions that access their prior knowledge.After accessing this content, students are asked to reflect upon what they have learned and organize questions and areas of confusion.Students then log in to a Facebook-like social tool, where they post their questions.The instructor sorts through these questions prior to class, organizes them, and develops class material and scenarios that address the various areas of confusion.
