Flipped Classrooms: Action Research from the GTN Project
The flipped classroom is an instructional strategy that relies on video and online technologies to present instructional material. Students view videos containing instructional content and then use class time for projects and discussion. This module will summarize existing research on flipped classrooms and showcase action research by Governor’s Teacher Network participants. The focus will be on the effectiveness of flipped classrooms, highlighting the experiences of teachers, affordances and constraints of the instructional strategy, and also best practices for educators wishing to utilize the flipped classroom model with their students.
