Over the last few years the classrooms and the technology landscape has been shifting faster than ever. The availability and use of technology is driving educators and administrators to move away from traditional learning and pursue the concept of “flipped learning.” Many educators are experimenting with the idea of a flipped classroom model. So what is it and why is everyone talking about it?
Flipped learning is the concept of turning traditional education on its head, lectures are pre-recorded and viewed remotely outside of the classroom. Students can do their work collaboratively in the classroom rather than independently at home. The gaining of interaction and hands-on experience between students and teachers allows for students to grasp knowledge and build skills in ways that work for them.
Helping to drive flipped learning into educational institutions is the fact that more often than not students are leaving the pen and paper at home and bringing their personal device such as laptops, tablets, and mobiles devices to the classroom. Adopting BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) in education environment is not sort of “empty talk”!
