Improvements from a Flipped Classroom May Simply Be the Fruits of Active Learning
Recent paper out by Jamie L. Jensen, Tyler A. Kummer, and Patricia D. d. M. Godoy which talks about active learning environments and flipped classrooms. I can dig it. I’ve been thinking about this for years – is it that better teachers are doing the flipped classroom and that’s why we see a boom of productivity, or is it really the method itself? The following article makes it seem like the direction of instruction (if you will) isn’t as important as having an active learning environment.
Anyone have any objections or issues with their methods?
