Paper books are still very ubiquitous and a very important learning tool. The same is true for paper magazines.

Let students becomes more than just consumers. Let them become producers/creators of new artifacts of new collections of knowledge of new insights.

Ron Leunissen's insight:
Is the buzz word "flipped classroom" really something new ? It's not in my opinion because at the basis it comes down to learner centered teaching. Ask yourself "What should the student DO to reach the learning goal?", and you'll focus on the student's activity instead of on the teacher's activity.

#rhizo14   This old Indian story is a wonderful example of complete independent learning from an external point of view. From the learner's point of view though (in this story) there is a dependency on a teacher (though it's only a clay statue).
