Several years ago, the idea of flipping the classroom was very intriguing, but for some reason, I let it fall by the wayside. I’ve “flipped” units/lessons before but not full scale. With all that has happened this spring, I know this is likely going to be part of the solution to some of the problems/concerns faced in distance learning.
In my mind, I feel that when we return, if I have the chance to build a routine with the flipped lessons, and focus our time together in deeper problem solving, etc., it will have a greater chance of transfer to a full, online situation should it arise.
@druinok is always a step ahead, reading Flipping 2.0 which suggested a book, Flipping with Kirch – the Ups and Downs from Inside my Flipped Classroom, (there is a link here to buy it directly from the author ) who also has a blog by the same name or you can find it on kindle at amazon. She shares her experiences and reflections as a high school math teacher from 2011-2014 and offers some great, practical advice/questions to consider as one is beginning this journey.
There will be a book chat beginning next week on Twitter. Feel free to look us up and join in!
