Will the “Flipped Classroom” Model Change How We Learn?

The “flipped classroom” — that’s what educators are calling a new model for learning that has students taking online lessons at home  and coming to class for higher level applications. The Khan Academy has been highly profiled in education news and continues to grow and create more appealing hooks for the modern learner.
