- The flipped classroom is not about teaching something new so much as it is about just doing the same thing another way.
- Many teachers take what is traditionally done in the classroom and flip that with what is traditionally assigned as homework. Other approaches are to move classroom discussion online and do more hands-on work face-to-face.
- Everything I have read so far shows improvement in student learning. (I know – that’s why I said everything I read.)
- What do Teachers Who Have Flipped their Classrooms have to Report?
- Teachers with 7+ years are the ones who are using this approach most.
- Science, math, and ELA are the more popular subject areas here
- 95% of flipped classrooms are secondary level.

- The advantage of the flipped classroom is that the content, often the theoretical/lecture-based component of the lesson, becomes more easily accessed and controlled by the learner.
- Due to Khan Academy’s popularity, the idea of the flipped classroom has gained press and credibility within education circles.
- The problem is that educators, as a group, know how to do and use the lecture. When educators are asked to replace their in-class lectures with videotaped ones (either their own or others) that learners watch at home, educators may not know what to do with this now void in-class time
- The Flipped Classroom offers a great use of technology - especially if it gets lecture out of the classrooms and into the hands and control of the learners. As it is being discussed, it is part of a larger picture of teaching and learning. The Flipped Classroom videos have a place in the models and cycles of learning proposed by educational psychologists and instructional designers. Providing educators with a full framework of how the Flipped Classroom can be used in their educational settings will increase its validity for educators and their administrators.
