The notion of a “flipped” classroom has been gaining a lot of attention in the past year or so.
First of all, what is a “flipped” classroom? By most accounts, a flipped classroom is one where the instruction takes place online outside of class hours, thereby freeing classtime for discussion, application and/or homework on the online lesson’s ideas and topics that students have previously viewed.
I have been following the development and interest that it is gaining and wanted to collect a number of links to some valuable resources on the flipped model:
