About the Topic

Stimulating student engagement is a continued focus of all educators. The Flipped Classroom is seen globally as one way to encourage student engagement. The Flipped Classroom involves inverting traditional teaching methods by having content delivered virtually, allowing for greater interaction/activities during face-to-face class time. Educational technology theories advocate this student-centered approach where students and teachers learn together through the pedagogical application of technology.
