Another "incomplete" "work in progress" "brain dump of my thoughts" post :). This will be edited and updated throughout the summer. Here are the Top 5 Web Tools my students will be using a lot this next year. I will still be adding to the notes for each web tool in terms of HOW I am going to use it... these are just my thoughts right now.

The Flipped Classroom
Since I started flipping my world history class this year, many educators have asked questions about the model and its implementation. Chase Moore ( @moore2cw ), a fellow world history teacher interested in the flipped model, recently posed the following questions. He had recently read my post about the flipped mastery model in our history class (which has since changed a bit, more below). I thought posting this brief conversation could further the discussion online with others interested in the ways that the flipped model can be applied to the social studies classroom. “How do you develop your Standards?” After a few units of flipping, I started applying a standards-based-grading approach.
It recently occurred to me that since I began flipping my world history course in January, each of my screencast lectures have had one overarching goal: content delivery. This has proven tremendously useful and the early results, considering both assessment scores and student feedback, are encouraging. Transitioning some of my direct instruction (content delivery through lecture) to video has helped students understand some of the major events and themes from world history, but I realized what I should shift my focus towards: building social studies skills! Since most of our class time is now spent working on such skills, I now have a better understanding of their ability to engage in such learning experiences. In sum, I overestimated many of their abilities.
I've been getting some questions on just what is WiFli Response and how is it different from other student response systems. While I'm excited about its clean look and have floated some pictures out there, this may be a case where words will do it better justice. First of all, this is not meant to be something that competes with Google Apps. In fact it is completely dependent on Google Apps. A user must be signed in to their Google account to be able to access their data in the app. If you are like me in the morning, signing in to Google is the second thing you do after turning on your computer.
Web editing can be difficult for many and making something user friendly for students can be even more difficult. I've been playing around with Google Sites recently and have found a useful tool for presenting students with an organized list of video resources created for the class. What I'm doing is entering in a video link, the learning objective for the particular video and the textbook resource section associated with the video (as an additional resource). Using a new favorite formula of mine hyperlink(link, text) the link and learning objective are combined together very quickly. What I like is what displays on the webpage can be resorted and filtered.

Below is a brief intro video (also a sample screencast...) What is a "flipped class?" First, it is not (I repeat NOT) simply having students watch Khan Academy videos at school.
