I read an article a few months ago, where Eric Mazur an university professor at Harvard was talking about the benefits of using a flipped class with his students. He said that the most valuable tool that can be used in a flipped classroom is a…..”Book”. Having students read or research information before showing up to class is very effective. This professor also believes that technology can create more unique ways to flip a class., but he chooses to stay away from using technology, as the simple “book” concept has effectively worked for the past 20+ years.
Sometimes simple solutions works great, but not necessarily innovative for the students.
