It's been a few weeks, how are you feeling about flipped-learning?
So far we have defined blended learning and flipped classrooms and explored some statistics about the topics. This week we will turn to a couple noted experts in the field to see what they have to say. Jon Bergmann and Aaron Sams are pioneers in the flipped-learning community. Interesting to note that they both taught in nearby Woodland Park, Colorado. The gentlemen have co-authored a few books through ASCD and ISTE: Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day
and Flipped Learning: Gateway to Student Engagement and the soon to be released Flipping the Science Classroom.
Additionally, they have an excellent series of videos on Edutopia as part of the Flipped-Learning Toolkit. Click the picture below to find the toolkit. What are you waiting for? Go grab your favorite beverage, turn up the volume and get ready to further your learning. You will be entertained and glad you took the time to rethink how you share content. Ultimately, your students will be the the ones saying, "Flip, flip, hooray!" Or something like that!
