Side note: This is dual post of my EdTech 537 course at Boise State University.
A major buzz word in education today is the "Flipped Classroom." Although this concept is not new, many I feel are getting it wrong. Instead of using readings or videos to teach content, I think our students must explore the content first. I have linked three articles below that argue for more dynamic classrooms.
The first is titled, "Inverting the Classroom: A Gateway to Creating an Inclusive Learning Environment" from 2000.
The second is a study out of MIT titled, "A Wearable Sensor for Unobtrusive, Long-Term Assessment of Electrodermal Activity" from 2010.
The third is a paper out of Stanford titled, "Classes should do hands-on exercises before reading and video, Stanford researchers say" from 2013.
What are your thoughts? Should be "flipping" the classroom the way most people are or more like Ramsey and myself?
