Billionaire investor George Soros speaks to CNNFN on his outlook for the global economy. He also discussed his views on the U.S. and what it will take to put the U.S. economy on a higher growth path.

-- U.S. outlook is best among all the major economies today.

-- Entire globe economies are struggling from after effects of 25 years of superboom which resulted in excessive leverage.

-- That excessive leverage needs time to be unwound.

-- The only way to work out of this is growth, and having additional fiscal stimulus combined with QE will drive that growth.

-- Cutting back at this time will not help.

-- Would like the government to use stimulus money on something that will eventually play for itself, like investments in infrastructure and education.

Teachers flip for new ‘flipped learning’ class model



By Christina HoagAssociated PressMon Jan 28, 2013, 01:20 AM CST



SANTA ANA, Calif. — When Timmy Nguyen comes to his pre-calculus class, he’s already learned the day’s lesson — he watched it on a short online video prepared by his teacher for homework.

So without a lecture to listen to, he and his classmates at Segerstrom Fundamental High School spend class time doing practice problems in small groups, taking quizzes, explaining the concept to other students, reciting equation formulas in a loud chorus, and making their own videos while teacher Crystal Kirch buzzes from desk to desk to help pupils who are having trouble.

It’s a technology-driven teaching method known as “flipped learning” because it flips the time-honored model of classroom lecture and exercises for homework — the lecture becomes homework and class time is for practice.

“It was hard to get used to,” said Nguyen, an 11th-grader. “I was like ‘why do I have to watch these videos, this is so dumb.’ But then I stopped complaining and I learned the material quicker. My grade went from a D to an A.”
