Due to Khan Academy’s popularity, the idea of the flipped classroom has gained press and credibility within education circles. 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.

Flipping the Elementary Classroom How to do an "in-class" flip with young learners As a first grade teacher at a “Lighthouse” school in Baltimore County, I work with young students who each have their own digital learning device. My colleagues and I are also working to create models of digital, personalized, and blended learning for students using these new tools. As I continue to research and study 21st century learning both at school and in my graduate program at Loyola University, I keep hearing about the popular “flipped learning” classroom model. Flipped learning happens when the teacher delivers a lesson to students via a screencast or video assigned as homework, allowing in-class time to be spent reinforcing or applying the skill that was learned.

Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) Project - K-12 Education Two-thirds of American teachers feel that traditional evaluations don’t accurately capture the full picture of what they do in the classroom. They want information that they can trust from measures that are fair and reliable. The Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) project was designed to find out how evaluation methods could best be used to tell teachers more about the skills that make them most effective and to help districts identify and develop great teaching. When it came to identifying what great teaching looks like, we knew that it was imperative to go straight to the source: teachers. Through the MET project, we sought to answer the following critical questions: Is it possible to identify and measure effective teaching?
