Flipping the Classroom where the shool becomes fun and the boring part of learning happens somewhere in the cloud or in Khan Academy.

It was THE new hot thing back in 2011! More on flipped classrooms in one of my next articles about Knoppixtage Weiz. Meanwhile, i found this nice, well-aged posting from 2012 Flipping The Classroom: A Goldmine of Research and Resources To Keep You On Your Feet. Of course now in 2015 every self-respecting education-tech company has flipped classroom as a buzzword on their homepage. Knewton.com make more than just buzzwords: a nice, endless long infographic. With embed code! I like good made infographics a lot:
