How to Make Sure Your Students Have Access to Flipped Learning Content This is a concern that is frequently cited when teachers start down the road to the flipped classroom.

Flipped Classroom -v- Flipped Learning In preparation for my upcoming IB workshop on flipping the classroom, I've been reading everything I can about the benefits of the flip on student learning. One of the best arguments in favor of making the flip has been an article that appeared in the May edition of ISTE's magazine Learning and Leading with Technology by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams.

7 Excellent Free Blended Learning Resources – Understanding the Whys and Hows... “Blended Learning” has many definitions. Here’s one I really like, “Blended Learning is … a shift to online delivery for a portion of the day to make students, teachers and schools more productive. Learning in multiple modalities yields more and better data that creates an integrated and customizable learning experience.” This is from the Blended Learning Implementation Guide (discussed further below). In this article, we offer a curated set of resources that can equip any educator to better understand how Blended Learning (a.k.a. “Hybrid Learning”, “Mix-Mode Instruction”, “Web-enhanced Instruction” and other terms) works and why it is increasingly understood to be an optimal approach to teaching and learning.

Flipped Classroom Best Practices from Clintondale High School How’s this for an approach to learning about how to implement flipped teaching and learning: look to cases where the use of these techniques have been assessed and proven effective and identify common themes and practices? I recently started ‘mining’ measured successes of flipped teaching for Best Practices for a presentation I am doing in June at UB Tech 2014 (“Flipped Classroom Success Stories (and How to Make Yours Happen!)“.

I posted the first such article, “Culling Flipped Classroom Best Practices from Successful Implementations” last week, and here is another entry in what will be a series of articles on this topic. This week we examine the premier flipped high school, Clintondale High School in Michigan (in fact, they can be found at

249 Bloom's Taxonomy Verbs For Critical Thinking Bloom’s Taxonomy’s verbs–also know as power verbs or thinking verbs–are extraordinarily powerful instructional planning tools.
