One common criticism of the the Flipped Class is that it really isn’t that big of a change. A recorded lecture is still just a lecture. Instead of students sitting in a room and hearing a “boring” lecture we bore them at home. There really isn’t anything revolutionary about a video lecture.
If all the flipped classroom is lectures at home and homework in class, then yes–I agree with the pundits: The Flipped Class is just window dressing on a broken system.
