1 Flexible Environment. Educators can create flexible spaces in which students choose when and where they learn, as well as flexible timelines for learning and assessment.

2 Learning Culture. The Flipped Learning model deliberately shifts instruction to a learner-centered approach where class time is dedicated to exploring topics in greater depth and creating rich learning opportunities.

3 Intentional Content. Educators use Intentional Content to maximize class time in order to adopt methods of student-centered, active learning strategies.

4 Professional Educator. Professional Educators continually observe their students, providing them with feedback relevant in the moment and assessing their work. Professional Educators are reflective in their practice, connect with each other to improve their instruction, accept constructive criticism and tolerate controlled chaos in their classrooms.



Flipped Learning Network Unveils Formal Definition of Flipped Learning

To counter common misconceptions and bring clarity to discussions about “Flipped Learning,” the governing board and key leaders of the Flipped Learning Network (FLN) announce a formal definition of the term. FLN also announces the Four Pillars of F-L-I-P™ and a checklist of 11 supporting indicators that educators must incorporate into their practice. The definition draws a distinction between Flipped Learning and a Flipped Classroom.

Flipping the Classroom

Teachers from around the world have adopted the flipped classroom model and are using it to teach a variety of courses to students of all ages.
