Abstract

Technology is often accused of separating people, and in classrooms it can distance students even further from teachers if used improperly. However, innovative educators are using technology to revolutionize teaching by inverting or flipping the homework versus lecture equation. In an inverted or flipped classroom, students review pre-recorded lecture content online before class, freeing class time for active learning. Salman Khan, an entrepreneur and vocal proponent of flipping the lecture versus homework equation believed that flipping the homework with lecture literates and humanizes the classroom. Current research and practices about the inverted teaching, requirements for its successful implementation, and its possible payoffs are discussed in this paper.
