Flipped Learning Journal - Welcome. From the horse’s mouth to your ear, #flipclass student speaks! Kaitlin Graf is a Grade 10 student (now Grade 11) at Okanagan Mission Secondary.
This is her second semester in a Flipped Math class with my colleague and fellow flipper, @Math_Johnson. My name is Kaitlin Graf and I have experienced two semesters of Math (Math 10 and now Math 11) in a Flipped Class. At first I disliked the Flipped Class but later I realized that it was actually very helpful. I remember the first flipped class lesson I had. We all filed into the classroom and were handed a notes package along with a checklist of things we should complete before a test deadline. However, after a while in the flip class, I began to see the benefits of the flipped class and use them to my advantage. As well, I could move through the course as quickly as I liked, do as much or as little homework as I felt I need. The videos provided are additionally helpful because you can re-watch them as many times as you want. At the end of the day, I cannot imagine returning to a regular Math class.

" 1. Exploring "Menus" as a way to increase student choice in assignments. One of my big focuses for next year, now that I have my first .5 year of flipping under my belt, is to work on the activities I have students participate in during class. Right now, all students complete all the same assignments and activities.
And, for starting out, I think that was a good place for me. I would like to add more student choice in the assignments they complete to show mastery of the content. I haven't wrapped my head around this completely, and I don't know if I would have a menu for every concept, for every week, for every unit, etc. Seriously though, menus allow them to use their own gifts/methods, videos, podcasts, posters, art, whatever if set up right #flipclass 2.

Flipping the Class with Explain Everything & Google Drive - Turning Learning On Its Head. Flipping the Classroom with an Explain Everything and Google Drive Today I did a workshop for Chicago Public Schools where I helped them think through how to use iPads to flip their classes.
If you are considering using iPads to create flipped videos, there are many tools. One of them is Explain Everything. And since CPS is a google apps school system I developed a workflow for them to share the videos they created with Explain Everything to google drive. (This is also a playlist on my YouTube channel) . Feel free to share this and comment.

Inside the Flipped Classroom. Curriculum Update | In Print Inside the Flipped Classroom By Kathleen Fulton04/11/12 Students at Byron High School (MN) are participating in a "flipped" classroom approach that is transforming education at their school.
By 5:01 p.m. on a Tuesday afternoon, Byron High School (MN) math teacher Troy Faulkner has already received five e-mails from his students: "Where's tomorrow's video lesson? We are waiting! " Welcome to a "flipped classroom" at Byron High School--where the lectures are homework, and problem solving with the teacher is class time. A Cinderella Story According to Superintendent Wendy Shannon, nobody in the Byron Public Schools district set out to flip their classrooms, but necessity became the mother of invention. "With two failed operating levy referendum issues and a bad economy, we'd already had to cut $1.2 million from Byron's school budget," Shannon says.
The teachers came up with a radical idea: They'd create their own math curriculum. FLIP Principles. FC: Myths vs. Reality. Editor's Note: On the heels of our viral posts in over 100 countries about the flipped classroom earlier this year (links below), we asked Jon Bergmann if he could share some of the feedback he was receiving in light of the notable interest about this topic.
