In recent days, people in the mainstream media are talking about the new flipped classroom educational model that is increasingly being implemented in educational institutions around the world aiming to achieve success in teaching and learning. The World publishes the headline “Professor Rewinds the Class” to mean that the roles of the teacher, students and even their families in the classroom are transforming.
The flipped classroom or reverse classroom emerged in 2007 in Colorado coined by Jonathan Begmann, who at the time said put his class “backwards”. Why? Because seeing that some of his students could not attend classes, he decided to take a camera and recorded himself giving lessons so that students could come back to class prepared and all homework done outside of the classroom.
By 2007, Computer Aided E-learning (CAE), the parent company of Dexway Language Innovation, was investing in the improvement and development of its blended learning methodology for language learning, perfecting what we know today as the flipped classroom. CAE launched Dexway in 2010 at the international level at prestigious industry events such as San Diego , San Francisco Colombia , London , Shanghai, Madrid, Valencia, etc, gradually becoming a recognized and renowned model.
