"The Biggest Hurdle to Flipping Your Classroom"
This article was a nice introduction to the concept of a flipped classroom. I agree with the authors belief that one of the biggest hurdles teachers have is the release of control. Many teachers lean toward the lecture style method and I agree that it is not the best way for students to learn, and we need to change how we teach. The only thing that I many disagree with a little is that we can't completely lose all lecture style teaching, because of the students who may learn well that way.
This article is an introduction to the concept of what a flipped classroom is and what issues teachers have in starting this technique in their own classrooms. The author discusses a teachers inherent comfort in lecture style teaching and our need to teach in a way that excites and engages our students. A flipped classroom allows students more interactive learning styles and new ways to assess learning other than the traditional testing.
