It started with a simple observation: Students need their teachers present to answer questions or to provide help if they get stuck on an assignment; they don’t need their teachers present to listen to a lecture or review content.From there, Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams began the flipped classroom: Students watched recorded lectures for homework and completed their assignments, labs, and tests in class with their teacher available. What Bergmann and Sams found was that their students demonstrated a deeper understanding of the material than ever before.This is the authors’ story, and they’re confident it can be yours too.
Learn what a flipped classroom is and why it works, and get the information you need to flip a classroom. You’ll also learn the flipped mastery model, where students learn at their own pace, furthering opportunities for personalized education. This simple concept is easily replicable in any classroom, doesn’t cost much to implement, and helps foster self-directed learning. Once you flip, you won’t want to go back!
An argument for and overview of the flipped and flipped mastery classrooms; the logistics of conducting a flipped classroom, from the equipment needed to create videos to what to do during class to student assessment; a FAQ section that addresses important topics, including computer access, administrator buy in, and making sure your students are reliably accessing content on their own time
Well written, practical and informative. If you are serious about changing your classroom and improving student engagement, read this.
Just the facts please
Does a great job of boiling down the basics of what a "flipped" classroom is. Written very humbly by two people who created 2012's reform du jour. the difference is, this is a reasonable, doable change.
Flip for the Students
I've been teaching for over 28 years, and started inverting my class in 2008. I found it helped the students succeed in the class because they learned it was an ongoing process, not just within the four walls. I started hearing the phrase "flipped classroom" and realized that's what I was doing as well. Explaining it to others was more difficult then just showing them, which wasn't always physically possible. This book helps with the explanation, and I recommend this highly to anyone who considers trying this and check out their Ning forum for more assistance from them and others who are using this model to make learning a truly effective, interesting, and yes, entertaining process!
