But six years later, the […]
The Flipped Classroom: Pro and Con In 2012, I attended the ISTE conference in San Diego, CA. While I was only there for about 36 hours, it was easy for me to pick up on one of the hottest topics for the three-day event. The "flipped classroom" was being discussed in social lounges, in conference sessions, on the exhibit floor, on the hashtag and even at dinner. People wanted to know what it was, what it wasn't, how it's done and why it works.

What a Non-Partisan Plan for U.S. Entrepeneurship Would Look Like - Derek Thompson The Republican National Convention praised small businesses and the Democratic response will praise the administration's role in helping job creators. But what would a non-partisan plan for entrepreneurs look like? The theme of the first day of the Republican National Convention was "We Built It," a rallying-cry from entrepreneurs who insisted that they didn't need government to start their businesses. This week, we can expect the Democratic response to highlight the ways Obama's administration has empowered job creators. But what would an entrepreneur-first platform, stripped of party politics, really look like? Last week, I asked readers for answers.
Is It Really Hip to Flip? “Try it! You might like it!” is not a sufficient reason for initiating flipped instruction. What are the questions educators should be asking in order to ensure the best outcomes for students? Hardly a week has gone by in the last year when educators have not been bombarded by news articles, blog posts, or invitations to attend webinars and conferences focused on the flipped classroom.
Flipped Classroom – The Movie The Flipped Classroom got a lot of attention in the media during 2013, and this shows no sign of abating as we move into 2014. And why shouldn’t it? When I work with teachers and introduce them to the concept of flipped instruction, most of them quickly realize that it just makes sense. This form of blended learning has a lot to offer the student and teacher, and once educators realize they don’t need to go “all in” all at once to use flipped teaching techniques, they get inspired to try it! I’ve been having some fun learning iMovie lately, inspired by the awesome student created content I saw at the November Teaching and Learning with the iPad Conference. I decided to share my passion for flipped teaching and learning, and the enthusiasm of teachers, educators, and journalists the world over, in the form of an iMovie.
The Path to Resilience The more we learn about resilience in children, the more we begin to understand the powerful role that adults can play in fostering it, even in kids who face daunting challenges. As the latest science from the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard shows, resilience is fluid and compounding, nurtured by the essential fertilizer of an adult’s caring attention. A new three-part video series produced by the center explores — in clear and simple terms — exactly how that happens, answering questions about why some children who face serious problems can cope and thrive. Resilience is a broad set of “capacities and skills and abilities that give people a sense of mastery and management of difficulty,” says center director Jack Shonkoff, one of a number of neuroscientists and early childhood experts who paint a picture of resilience as a quality that is built over time, resulting from the interactions of people and their environment.
