Learning landscapes: From traditional to flipped classrooms

Andy Calkins breaks down the different learning landscapes in, "Moving towards next gen learning." Calkin referenced a graphic developed by the Christensen Institute to give insight into current and future learning models. The graphic shows four separate quadrants: traditional learning, blended learning, personalized and competency-based learning, and disruptive forms of blended and next generation learning. Individualization and use of digital strategies are also showcased on the image. Calkin remarked that students can expect to see more of the disruptive learning and flipped classes in the future.
