Chalk Talk: What Is a 'Flipped' Classroom
The “flipped” classroom is an education idea that has gained traction among some teachers in recent years. A flipped classroom is a classroom in which a teacher focuses less on teaching in the traditional manner and more on teaching students the critical thinking skills they need to sort through the information they find in the instructional and non-instructional texts that they encounter. Students spend class time working on projects and other hands-on activities that put their learning into action. Elements of class such as lectures are then prescribed for homework. The idea that guides this teaching method is that old modes of teaching students to acquire and hold onto knowledge are no longer useful now that student have the world’s knowledge at their fingertips at all times. Thus, instead of filling their minds with information, 21st century students need to know how to access information and sort the good from the bad.
