Today’s guest post was published on Getting Smart . 7 Essential Tools for a Flipped Classroom By Erin Palmer The flipped classroom uses technology to allow students more time to apply knowledge and teachers more time for hands-on education.
Produce material for YOUR students to engage them outside the classroom. Generic content works as a starting point but students have greater faith in their own teacher’s input. Decide on a workflow solution and stick to it. I use Edmodo to set assignments and annotate responses. Students are happy with this solution as it is cross platform and supports learning with library and backpack resources. Set specific deadlines for your students.
Flipped Learning 016: Three-Act Math with Dan Meyer Hide Player This week on the Flipped Learning Network Show: Troy interviews Dan Meyer, former Math teacher and is currently studying at Stanford University on a doctoral fellowship. He is the creator of the innovative Three-Act Math model that many Flipped teachers incorporate in their classes. Dan discusses Three-Act Math, what he likes and dislikes about Flipped Learning, the “Warring Factions” of Flipped Learning, his new initiative 101qs.com , and more.

I’ve noticed a revival of the ‘Flipped Learning’ edchat lately. Having trialled Flipped Learning (AKA Pre-learning*) for nearly 12 months, I thought it would be helpful to share what I’ve gleaned through the process. I’ll do this over a series of 3 blogs; the first blog will focus on how to find appropriate resources and then distribute these resources in a helpful, meaningful way. Before embarking on a flipped learning program, it’s most crucial to decide on your goal for flipped learning.
