Flipping your Classroom without Flipping Out

What has education's response to technology historically been?Have you ever felt like this?

Rethinking Education in the Age of Technology: The Digital Revolution and Schooling in America by Alan Collins and Richard Halverson (2009)From a principal's publication in 1815: "Students today depend on paper too much. They don't know how to write on a slate without getting chalk dust all over themselves. They can't clean a slate properly. What will they do when they run out of paper?"Students Today...1815

Students Today"Ten years from today, students will be learning at their own pace. The classroom will be a place for active interaction, not passive listening and daydreaming. The role of the teacher will be that of a mentor or coach as opposed to a lecturer, test writer, and grader. The institutions that will remain relevant will be those that leverage this paradigm, not fight it." -Sal Khan, Khan AcademyIn college, you get to really focus on what interests you. You have the freedom to take your time and experience any subject you want and once you find what you really love to study, you can devote yourself to it. -Josh Downey, Indiana State University. Pre-Med"In college, there's no one there to hold your hand and walk you through your work. Your professors won't slow the class down for you and your excuses don't matter. At the same time, it's very rewarding to discover your limits and talents as you work on your own" -David Cannon, Purdue University, Civil Engineering

Studying at college prompts one to take initiative for their own learning. Making sure that you manage your time wisely is rather difficult as you enter college (and throughout), but entirely doable. Reading, studying, and turning in assignments is entirely up to the student and professors rarely take the time to make reminder announcements and rather defer students to the syllabus. This style of learning allows for the student to attain higher levels of responsibility and ownership for their studies. -Keren Kandel, Indiana Wesleyan University, International Relations

In college professors don't truly care about your best interest, it's about your own initiative to learn. You can go to class everyday and sit on your laptop and not retain one thing--good luck on finals. But if you utilize class time, actually read the chapters before class, you'll be ahead of most in your class. You'll get out of college what you put into it. You can have the mindset "d stands for diploma" or you can study the lecture notes, read the book and prepare yourself that much better for the real world when you graduate. -Jana Prochaska, Indiana University, Exercise ScienceThe main thing I've learned about succeeding in college is that it truly doesn't matter how knowledgeable you are about a certain course, if you to put the effort in and completely dedicate yourself to highly achieving in college then you will. I think that's also very applicable to life in general. -Abby Walker, Purdue University Financial Planning and Counseling with a Minor in Spanish
