Flipped Learning Network™, George Mason University and Pearson’s Center for Educator Learning & Effectiveness Release Paper at FlipCon14

MARS, Pennsylvania - June 23, 2014 — Today at FlipCon14, the seventh annual gathering of flipped educators from around the world, the Flipped Learning Network™, George Mason University and Pearson’s Center for Educator Learning & Effectiveness released the 2014 Extension of a Review of Flipped Learning. Building on a 2013 comprehensive review of the literature on flipped learning, this updated literature review provides further evidence that this growing instructional model has the capacity to positively impact student outcomes, including achievement and engagement.

The flipped learning model of instruction is gaining in attention and adherents among teachers and administrators in U.S. K-12 and postsecondary classrooms. In this model, some or most of direct instruction is delivered outside the group learning space using video or other modes of delivery. This makes class time available for students to engage in hands-on learning, collaborate with their peers, and evaluate their progress. Teachers can provide more targeted one-on-one assistance, guidance and inspiration. The intentional shift is from a teacher-centered classroom to a student-centered learning environment.

According to a recent survey, awareness and implementation of this instructional model is exploding in the United States. A 2014 survey, conducted by the Flipped Learning Network™ and Sophia Learning, revealed that nearly 100 percent of teachers recognize the term and almost 80 percent indicate they have “flipped” a lesson in the last school year.

The new extended literature review expands the evidence base on the instructional model to include recently published studies, providing educators with the most up-to-date information about flipped learning. Eleven new indicators for educators to self-assess their classroom engagement in flipped learning are included as well as an overview on the changing perceptions of teachers, administrators and students over the past year. An analysis of implementations and results in K-12 schools, colleges and universities is also included.

Flipped Learning Network’s Executive Director Kari M. Arfstrom, Ph.D., said, “Creating active, engaged and learner-centered classrooms is the goal of the thousands of teachers around the country who are exploring the use of flipped learning with their students. The new studies included in this year’s literature review reveal that many are seeing a real impact from teaching in this way and that with support, such as professional development, they can be even more successful.”

For example, two math teachers from Niagara Falls High School in New York demonstrated an impact on student achievement. They flipped their classes in 2013 to use class time for more applied activities and individualized instruction. Both were encouraged by their students’ performance on the New York State Regents Examinations. After implementing the flipped approach, 83 percent of students in the honors Algebra II/Trigonometry class passed the exam compared with 71 percent the previous year and in the general Algebra II/Trigonometry class, 55 percent of students passed the exam compared with four percent the previous year.

Colleges and universities are also seeing positive results using the flipped model at both the undergraduate and graduate level. In a case study described in the review, a professor at Capital University in Ohio implemented a partially flipped learning model in an undergraduate statistics course for social science majors. In the flipped sections, exam scores increased, on average, nearly seven points compared to the previous year while final grades in the course increased, on average, nearly 10 points.

Co-author of the review and head of Pearson’s Center for Educator Learning & Effectiveness Katherine McKnight, Ph.D., said, “The team of collaborating researchers agrees that continued research and evaluation will be required, but current studies support the potential of the flipped learning model. The model focuses teachers on how they use instructional time, maximizing their use of learning activities both in- and outside of the classroom. A number of well-designed studies testing the impact of the flipped model on student learning suggest a positive impact.”

The paper was authored by Arfstrom and Pearson’s McKnight as well as Jessica Yarbro and Patrick McKnight, Ph.D., George Mason University.
