The Flipped Classroom infographic

 

From Knewton comes and infographic about The Flipped Classrom.  It’s a good explanation of one theory behind changing the classroom environment.  I don’t know how widespread it is, but the results from Detroit look impressive.

Many educators are experimenting with the idea of a flipped classroom model.  So what is it and why is everyone talking about it?  The flipped classroom inverts traditional teaching methods, delivering instruction online outside of class and moving “homework” into the classroom.

Thanks to Krista for sending in the link!

Honestly, this is information with some graphics, not infographics. There are a few scant charts that are infographics. The rest could be understood with the text alone.

This is exactly why online classes work better for me than in-person. If I attended an in-person lecture at university, I could sit in the back and nap if I wanted, and have "attended". Online, I'm forced to read the material myself, then interact with my fellow students on related material through bulliten board posts, which drives the points home more forcefully.

I think this is a great idea, and hope it expands.

This answers my inner complaint about traditional classroom procedure. Great idea!

I think the concept it brilliant but I don't believe it can work everywhere.
Most schools have adopted the 'art' of spoon feeding students in order to achieve results. I'm afraid as a result students have very little desire to actually partake in any learning themselves in class let along outside of it.

I would really love for this to work and I have tried it several times in different ways and at different schools. I envy teachers that are in an environment that this can be achieved.
