Some key take-aways:
- The Marzano Learning Sciences Research Lab (Marzano & Toth, 2014) has recently published a research report (namely “Teaching for Rigor: A Call for a Critical Instructional Shift”), revealing that nearly 60% of the classroom time in schools in the United States is still dedicated to direct instruction.
- According to the recent K-12 edition of the New Media Consortium Horizon Report 2015 (Johnson, Adams Becker, Estrada & Freeman, 2015), the flipped classroom is foreseen as one of the most prominent educational strategies in this triennium to transform students from “spoon-fed,” passive learners into self-directed, active learners.
