The Flipped Classroom model is gaining momentum. And now there is evidence of higher attendance for participating students, and even some evidence of higher achievement.
According to the Emerging EdTech blog, a rural U.S. high school compared math scores of traditional classrooms to those of flipped classrooms that relied on podcasts and inquiry-based learning. Findings showed that the students in the flipped learning model had a 3.2 (B) average versus a 2.52 (C+) average GPA for students in the traditional delivery method after two semesters.
In another study, a college-level physics course netted similar results—and one very notable statistic: attendance rose by more than 20% among students participating in the flipped classroom model. Read the full article here.
