Description

The traditional way of imparting knowledge (teacher at the front of the class, lecturing, setting kids homework they might not do) could one day be a thing of the past.

This age-old method “assumes that the student’s brain is like an empty container into which the professor pours knowledge”. However, some educators believe a new “flipped” method could be the way forward, potentially producing better learning outcomes for Australian children.
