Reading FlipYour Classroom by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams provided practical advice and a justification for flipping, Learning about the Stanford studies that suggest better results from flipping your flipping (that is, doing hands-on work in the classroom first, reinforced by flipped lessons at night) But, ultimately, what I needed to do was to dive in and try out some tools with my kids and my curriculum in mind.

Over the last month, I have been updating it for 2016, adding over 30 new tools and refreshing the information I had about the original ones.

Briefly, the Flipped Classroom as described by Jonathan Martin is: Flip your instruction so that students watch and listen to your lectures… for homework, and then use your precious class-time for what previously, often, was done in homework: tackling difficult problems, working in groups, researching, collaborating, crafting and creating. Classrooms become laboratories or studios, and yet content delivery is preserved.
5 Digital Tools For The Flipped Classroom Hafsa Wajeeh, dtopgadgets Have you “Flipped your classroom” yet? The flipped classroom is a useful technique that has moved lectures out of the class, and onto digital media. In doing so, teachers can drastically increase interaction time with their students.

A number of tools are available that can be used to record lectures, including YouTube, Edmodo, Schoology, and Moodle.
Flipped Classroom Successes in Higher Education Last year I took my advocacy of the flipped classroom ‘on tour’ with presentations at colleges and conferences across the U.S. I also developed and delivered an online workshop about how to get started with ‘the flip’, which seemed to be a great learning experience for all involved (including me!). I believe that this is one of the most powerful approaches to leveraging technology in an instructional context to come along since the world started “going digital”. This year I will continue this focus, with an expanded online work shop (to be offered several times over the year) and an ebook on the topic that I hope to publish by March.

Thus the purpose of this infographic is to simply explain what I believe the Flipped Classroom it is.
Flipped Classroom: Beyond the Videos Last week, I read an interesting blog post by Shelley Blake-Plock titled “The Problem with TED ed.” It got me thinking about the flipped classroom model and how it is being defined. As a blended learning enthusiast, I have played with the flipped classroom model, seen presentations by inspiring educators who flip their classrooms, and even have a chapter dedicated to this topic in my book. However, I am disheartened to hear so many people describe the flipped classroom as a model where teachers must record videos or podcasts for students to view at home. Flipped Classroom: 5 Strategies to Flip & Engage My blog “Flipped Classroom: Beyond the Videos” explored both my excitement and concerns around the flipped classroom model. Several comments and questions posted in response to that blog post asked about the strategies I use to engage students in active learning online. I want to share some of the strategies I use for engaging students around flipped content to:
The Flipped Classroom: Pro and Con I recently 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. Others wanted to sing its praises and often included a vignette about how it works in their classroom and how it transformed learning for their students. Still others railed that the model is nothing transformative at all and that it still emphasizes sage-on-the-stage direct instruction rather than student-centered learning.
