Education is moving irreversibly towards personalized, tech-driven instruction models. One of the most compelling models to arise out of this trend is the flipped classroom model. Our dear friends at Techsmith define the flipped classroom as follows:
A reversed teaching model that delivers instruction at home through interactive, teacher-created videos and moves “homework” to the classroom. Moving lectures outside of the classroom allows teachers to spend more 1:1 time with each student. Students have the opportunity to ask questions and work through problems with the guidance of their teachers and the support of their peers – creating a collaborative learning environment.
This trend aligns with the larger movement towards personalized curriculum, and focuses on technology not as a solution, but rather as a powerful and flexible means to a solution. Student engagement, grades, and graduation rates are positively impacted by this model, so education customers will jump at the chance to implement this type of instruction.
