Here's an excellent infograph that describes the principles behind the concept the flipped classroom. Basically the idea is that classroom time has always been devoted to teacher input in the form of a lecture and then most of the practice and reflection was homework. The flipped classroom principle lets students/pupils watch recorded lectures at home and use classroom time for practice, reflection and discussion.
We all remember sitting at home with school work that we didn't understand and wasting so much time trying to figure it out. If that had been done in class the teacher could have helped. Input should be available on the net and set as homework and when we have the students on one place let's use that time for learning not lecturing.
