The Flipped Classroom continues to enlist tech-savvy teachers as evangelists, and technologies that support them continue to evolve. At this year’s ISTE conference, Cisco caught up with Flipped Classroom pioneers, Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams to discuss one of the hottest trends in education.
In the video below, Jonathan and Aaron discuss how the Flipped Classroom model transforms the entire classroom dynamic through conversation rather than dissemination of knowledge. Jonathan suggests one of the greatest benefits of flipping is that overall interaction increases: Teacher to student and student to student. With more than 67 percent of educators reporting that this model has improved student test scores by 67 percent it’s no wonder that this is being rapidly adopted.
