public perception vocabulary 101--the flippin' classroom

VOCABULARY 101--THE FLIPPIN' CLASSROOM: A rose is a rose is a rose--but only because most of us have a pretty darn good idea of what a rose is. Edtech is not just a new industry; it's introducing a new vocabulary. The Innosight Institute folks have thoughtfully tried to help define terms around blended learning (and we've made our own, modest contributions.) Now the ubersmart guy, Alex Hernandez at the Charter School Growth Fund, weighs in with a discussion of what the "flipped classroom" should mean. Key point: "'Flipping the classroom' does not mean watching lectures for homework, it means flipping from teacher- to student-driven practices." Agree? Disagree? C'mon: sharing is good for the soul.
