The Flipped Classroom and the Changing Role of the Educator? [infographic]

It's no secret that technology is reshaping the educational landscape, but how exactly?

This infographic from Knewton and Column Five Media offers a rather visual look at one new model of education. In the 'flipped classroom' no longer do teachers feel the 'sage of the stage' role, lecturing for hours on end, but instead shift to helper bee as a 'guide on the side.' Class time can be reserved for hands-on activities and problem solving, while internet-based video lecturers are the new homework.

The statistics look promising, representing a substantial increase in performance by college freshman.
