Shelley Wright, a high-school teacher in Canada, describes her reasons for giving up on the flipped instructional method in favor of student-centered, project-based learning. She writes that flipped instruction disappeared -- almost unnoticed -- from her classroom because students learned to do much of their own research, rather than awaiting videos she posted online. "I've learned that inquiry [and] PBL learning can be incredibly powerful in the hands of students. I would never teach any other way again," writes Wright, who a year ago wrote a blog post in support of the flipped method.
