What is a flipped classroom? (in 60 seconds) Last week, I plopped down for Sunday brunch in New York City with some non-edu obsessed friends and acquaintances I had not seen in a long time. About 10 seconds after our formal greetings, the person sitting across from me leaned forward and said, “So…not to be too business like, but what is a flipped classroom?” Surprised, I tilted my head and narrowed my eyes quizzically, the person sitting two seats over followed up with a smile and explanation: “We follow you on LinkedIn.”

Five Best Practices for the Flipped Classroom Ok, I'll be honest. I get very nervous when I hear education reformists and politicians tout how "incredible" the flipped-classroom model, or how it will "solve" many of the problems of education. It doesn't solve anything. It is a great first step in reframing the role of the teacher in the classroom.

It helps move a classroom culture towards student construction of knowledge rather than the teacher having to tell the knowledge to students. Flipped Classrooms: Annotated list of resources -e-Literate I was recently asked by a colleague if I knew of a useful article or two on flipped classrooms – what they are, what they aren’t, and when did they start.

While I had a few in mind, I put out a bleg on Google+ and got some great responses from Laura Gibbs, George Station, and Bryan Alexander. Once mentioned, Robert Talbert and Michelle Pacansky-Brock jumped into the conversation with additional material.

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom The days of tried-and-tested classroom quizzes are getting shaken up. Thanks to education technology, we’re seeing a massive influx of entertaining yet useful apps and web tools that make quizzes a bit more engaging.
