The Best Of Our Knowledge #1263

Dec 3, 2014

Even with all the innovations and new teaching techniques schools have introduced in the last few decades, the actual school day has looked pretty much the same.  Students go to class, listen to a teacher and take notes, then are off to do homework or study for an exam.  But there is a trend starting to take hold in some schools that reverses that school day. Today on the Best Of Our Knowledge, we’ll hear about schools that are flipping classes…and how it has succeeded where other innovations have failed.

We'll also spend an academic minute flipping languages, and hearing how the multilingual nature of today’s classrooms is shaping language learning.
