Is flipped classroom a fad?

Everyday, we hear about someone flipping their classroom and getting great results.

Some of the days, we also hear problems with flipping and teachers complaining about it.

Lets try to understand this from a data-driven angle to bring clarity and learn the reality of flipped classroom at a broader level.

Lets look at Google trends:

flipped-classroom

It appear that it has been growing since 2011 and now we’re approaching 2014. Great! Something growing since 3 years can be a fad or trend?

Fads are short-lived and there is no possibility for them to continued growth and press.

We think flipped-classroom is a trend because a fad can’t last for 3 years and it’s growing strong.
