It is called the flipped class because what used to be classwork (the "lecture" is done at home via teacher-created videos and what used to be homework (assigned problems) is now done in class.Jon Bergmann, Jerry Overmyer and Brett Wilie
My teacher had us read the text book at home so we could use class time to discuss the contents.
Today's "flipped" teacher has the students listen to a lecture at home so they can discuss the contents in class.
Other than the information presentation media (print vs video), what's the dif?
I applaud the concept as good teaching methodology, but is this really new?
