Engage with the Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture
Due to Khan Academy’s popularity, the idea of the flipped classroom has gained press and credibility within educational circles. The lecture or didactic component of the lesson becomes available to the learner as a video during his or her own time – often as homework. 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 learners leaving classroom time to engage in experiential activities, group discussions, and critical reflection.
