iMovie: iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad While not necessarily the first app to come to mind for flipping your classroom, this app is invaluable for making simple edits on recordings that you have made. Most recording or capturing software on iPad, iPhone, or iPod's do not have the ability to pause and restart recordings. iMovie also allows you to cut clips up and piece together your final movie. This comes in handy when, like me, you make multiple takes of a presentation and want to edit out the worst!
In a packed session this afternoon at ISTE 2012 here in San Diego, a panel of nine educators, as well as two moderators presented their ideas and experiences with "flipping" their classrooms. The session was led by Aaron Sams and Jonathan Bergmann, two chemistry teachers who pioneered the flipped learning model back in 2006. The pair recently co-wrote a book, published by ISTE and ASCD , called Flip Your Classroom . Defining what "flipping your classroom" meant was the first topic of conversation, which proved to be somewhat more difficult than you might expect. In fact, the reason the panel consisted of nine educators, instead of two or three, was precisely to demonstrate that there were many different ways to effectively flip a classroom. The flipped classroom has become somewhat synonymous with using videos to have students view lectures at home while in-class time is used for applied knowledge.

Will Richardson Three words seem to be dancing around in my head of late when it comes to current thinking about education: “personalization,” “engagement” and “flip.” All three were on display on the vendor floor and in session rooms at last week’s International Society for Technology in Education conference in San Diego, one of the largest ed tech conferences in the world attended by upward of 18,000 people. At first blush, they are words that seem to promote a vision of better learning for kids. But as is so often the case in education, I’m not sure we as a community are spending enough time digging to parse what those words really mean, especially in the context of what deep learning now requires in a connected world.
Brady Hesse, an eighth-grader at Bridgetown Middle School in Cincinnati, likes all things digital. That's not unusual for boys his age, many of whom would rather play video games than do just about anything else. So when Hesse heard about an opportunity to play with computers during the school day, he jumped at the chance. "It was something new to do," he says of eKIDs, a program overseen by the city's Oak Hills Local School District (OHLSD) that allows students to learn several technologies, teach them to their classmates and then work with teachers to incorporate them into the existing curriculum.
