Flipped classroom

What research says

The idea of flipped classroom is to let the learners study the lesson at home, then, once in the classroom, ask the teacher questions on specific points not fully understood and practiced with exercises. The lessons can be a text, but most of the time the flipped classroom is supported with an approximately 10 min. video lesson.

Project based learning

What research says

Students study topics they will not likely learn outside of school. Most of the time, the learned topics are disconnected; students do not see the connection between these different topics or how they are related. Project-based learning tries to address this problem.
