Flipped Classroom

Afterwards, students and teacher meet in the classroom to discuss the instructions, apply the knowledge, and do excercises.

Folksonomy

Folksonomy (folk+taxonomy), also known as social tagging, is a user-defined metadata collection. A folksonomy evolves when many users create or store text at particular sites, such as wikis, and identify via tags what they think the text is about. Folksonomies differ from taxonomies: Folksonomies structure content via user tags; taxonomies are classifications defined by more formal methods that do not necessarily include user-generated tags.
