Flipping the Classroom

Flipping the Classroom
This site is maintained by Jerry Overmyer and is devoted to teaching educators how to use screencasting to flip your classroom. This method of learning is the brainchild of Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams who are pioneers in the field of using screencasting in education. The official site is now at the Flipped Learning Network. The flipped classroom model encompasses any use of using Internet technology to leverage the learning in your classroom, so you can spend more time interacting with students instead of lecturing. This is most commonly being done using teacher created videos (aka vodcasting) that students view outside of class time. It is called the flipped class because the whole classroom/homework paradigm is "flipped".

These five examples were relatively well received by students. Having already assessed their holiday work 16-year-old students were asked to take part in a little experiment. They were allowed to ask any question they wanted of the teacher so long as they passed a Socrative quiz halfway through the lesson and completed an exit ticket.
