From Harvard University to inner city Detroit to rural Colorado; from basic introductory classes to AP courses, teachers are experiencing significant improvement in student achievement transitioning to the ‘Flipped Classroom’ model. A side benefit is that teachers save time.
The flip model represents a merger of:
- The Socratic method where students are responsible for meaningful conversation while in class
- Research in cognitive science that shows students need immediate feedback
- The emergence of powerful learning online communities where student thinking can become more visible and mutually supportive
The flip model represents a significant cultural change in the traditional classroom and changing roles of student and teacher.
