What’s the Flipped Classroom? Why is it HOT?

May 1, 2012

Here’s 15 news stories from the last month about flipping the classroom.

There are news stories and web articles about reverse instruction, or ‘flipping the classroom’, published just about every day lately. Here’s 15 news stories from the last 4 weeks focused on this instructional technology phenomenon. Many of these articles mention ‘the flip’ in their title (and for every one of these, there have been one or two additional articles that discuss the concept).

In addition to listing these articles here, I’ve also created and shared a videoand a Slideshare deck to help to bring attention to this powerful idea and spread the word about it to educators everywhere. If you want to spread the word too, please pass this article or one of these other presentations on to your colleagues.
