What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning? "If only [insert subject here] were taught this way when I was in school, I might actually know how to do it." I have said this countless times, and I hear it often from others. As executive director of the Flipped Learning Network (FLN), I have an "elevator speech" at the ready whenever people ask what flipped learning is. Capture for Chrome: create and upload vi...

Toward a common definition of "flipped learning" - Casting Out Nines We’ve seen a significant ramping up of interest in – and exposure to – the flipped/inverted classroom over the last few years, and it’s been nice to see an uptick in the amount of research being done into its effectiveness. But one thing that’s been lacking has been a consensus on what the flipped classroom actually is. If a professor assigns readings to do before class and then holds discussions in class, is that “the flipped classroom”? I’ve said in the past that it is not (necessarily), but that’s just me. Now, however, a group of educators and others interested in flipped learning are proposing a common definition of flipped learning, and it’s pretty interesting.
The Flipped Class: Myths vs. Reality Editor's Note: On the heels of our viral posts in over 100 countries about the flipped classroom earlier this year (links below), we asked Jon Bergmann if he could share some of the feedback he was receiving in light of the notable interest about this topic. The timing couldn't have been more perfect since he was about to leave for a conference about you-guessed-it, the flipped class. Here is Part 1 of our three part series The Daily Riff. See Part 2 and 3 links below. - C.J. Westerberg The “WHY” Guide to #Edchat topics Although many educational models and pedagogies can seem like a conveyer belt of fads sometimes, many of them at least focus on one or two key educational concerns. Regardless of whether you think it a passing fad, many of them have an aim that you should know about and be considering as a teacher in the 21st Century. I must admit though, as busy teachers, it is understandable that to fully implement a number of them is unrealistic. So here’s my summary of the key take-aways from each model that you should aim to implement in your teaching. (Click for larger version)

Biggest criticisms: watching videos of lectures wasn’t all that revolutionary, that it perpetuated bad teaching and raised questions about equal access to digital technology. Now flipped classroom may have reached equilibrium, neither loved nor hated, just another potential tool for teachers — if done well. “You never want to get stuck in a rut and keep doing the same thing over and over,” said Aaron Sams, a former high school chemistry teacher turned consultant who helped pioneer flipped classroom learning in an edWeb webinar. “The flipped classroom is not about the video,” said Jonathan Bergmann, Sams’ fellow teacher who helped fine tune and improve a flipped classroom strategy.
Using TeacherTube in the Flipped Classroom - TeacherTube Official Blog TeacherTube Official Blog Social media and online resources have become essential tools for the 21st century classroom. By engaging students through contemporary classroom resources, we not only provide them with career-readiness skills, but also with the opportunity for their voice(s) to be an invaluable part of the learning process. During last week’s #edchat, teachers and educators discussed the important role of student voice in the classroom, and how implementing educational technology can help. One of the main topics of last week’s #edchat was the Flipped Classroom model and how to (successfully) use it in the classroom. As defined in Knewton’s infographic “The Flipped Classroom: Turning Traditional Education on it’s Head,” the basic principle of this model is that it “inverts traditional methods, delivering instruction online outside of the class and moving ‘homework’ into the classroom.” Among the hour, many teachers voiced concerns over the availability of video resources (i.e.
