Flipped learning changes the role of the teacher from an instruction giver, to a true facilitator of learning.
Flipped learning is when students are assigned the learning to do as homework, before their classroom lesson, through videos, readings or other independent learning activities. When students come to class, they already have the foundation knowledge, and class time can be used to fully engage in the content.
Once in the classroom, students can start exploring the content in more depth than if they were encountering the content for the first time. With flipped learning, the classroom becomes a zone of higher order thinking.
According to Bloom's taxonomy, "remembering" is first and most basic level of thinking. When a student arrives at class having already reached this level, the door is opened for students to engage in higher order thinking.
