Hear these teachers explain why they flipped their classrooms, and what they’ve learned along the way.
1. Why I Flipped My Classroom
8th grade math and Algebra 1 teacher Katie offers a great explanation of why she flipped her classroom in this video. Her explanation is elegant yet powerful in its simplicity.
2. The Flipped Classroom
Jon Bergmann and fellow High School teacher Aaron Sams have become widely known advocates of flipped instruction and last year they published the book Flip Your Class: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day (learn more here). One my favorite things about this 2+ minute video is the section where we see Sams and Bergmann talking to each other in a sampling of flipped content they created – this is a great technique that can make creating flipped learning materials much more enjoyable for students and teachers.
3. Flipped Classrooms and the Mastery Approach to Learning
Jon Bergmann explains the ‘mastery learning’ approach he implemented using the flip in this quick video.
4. The Flipped Classroom is not…
“Mathjohnson” clears up misconceptions about the flip in this video, explaining a lot of what it is, and what it isn’t. I particularly appreciate the reference to how the flipped model can move students from “playing school” to “playing learning“.
5. The Flipped Classroom as a Vehicle to the Future
This seems like an inspiring video to conclude with. “With the power of the flipped classroom, we are now creating the future [of teaching and learning], not waiting for it.”
