The ^IfMine Mashup: Technology & The Flipped Classroom

The ^IfMine Mashup gathers together quotes from top articles about how education is changing through the assistance of technology.


A flipped or reverse classroom is a form of blended/hybrid learning which encompasses the use of educational technologies to leverage the learning in a classroom. As a result, a teacher spends more time interacting with students by using learning-based activities instead of lecturing. -Christopher Pappas

Instructors say the inverted learning design allows students to absorb the material as homework and then practice what they’ve learned in class with help from the teacher. This new style makes class time more productive for both teachers and students and increases student engagement. -Roneisha Mullen

While it seems like some brick-and-mortar institutions are listening to the way that technology is shifting the way we both teach and learn, there are far more that aren’t moving into the e-learning realm efficiently and effectively. -Mike Vardy

Technology now offers more people the opportunity to work together without geographical restraint, and businesses everywhere are expecting employees to collaborate on projects, both in face-to-face teams and in virtual teams. -Timothy Quinn
