Review: While the article is a good overview of flipped classrooms, it presents flipped classroom as the end-all-beat-all. It does not discuss any drawback to flipped classroom or potential obstacles in making this model work. There are many obstacles and extra consideration for flipped classrooms. Rosenberg also makes the claim flipped classrooms allow for more individualized and self-directed learning, and while this is certainly true, she does so with no claims to back this up. The article does not go deep enough into the role of the teacher as a support system within this model.
