Turning the Classroom Upside Down

Apr 18 2011 8:30 PM

… our tools have given students and teachers the power to “flip” the traditional classroom: Students can hear lectures at home and spend their time at school doing “homework”—that is, working on problems. It allows them to advance at their own pace, gaining real mastery, and it lets teachers spend more time giving one-to-one instruction.

A good example of fresh thinking about school. The whole idea of school needs a rethink in my opinion. More real world experience is needed. Learning cements with use.
