I have been thinking a lot lately about where flipped learning fits into the whole educational reform movement. What place does flipped learning have in this movement? We have learned a great deal about learning in the recent past, but sadly much of that research doesn’t get into actual classrooms. Why is that?
First, a little background on educational research: Research suggests that mastery learning, problem based learning (PBL), inquiry learning, hands-on learning, and many other learning practices increase student engagement and performance. But in many classes, teachers are not using these learning strategies.
