Despite my misgivings, I have been flirting with this concept for a while, and after a recent conversation with my superintendent, I decided to give the flipped classroom a chance. Our Macbooks offer us a unique opportunity to create very personalized videos and other presentations in a number of formats. Besides, I do love a good experiment! As a man of science, how can I dismiss a theory without testing it? After ISTEP (Indiana's standardized test), I will start a 2-3 week period of flipping my class. I plan to use some students surveys and keep careful records of student learning. I will report my finding and information on this blog. I will create several videos as the learning materials students will watch at home or on their own time and class time will be used for learning activities and/or one-on-one remediation. Here is a sample of a a video podcast about the Spread of Islam I made in Keynote and edited in iMovie. Student will watch this and post a question or comment on my Edmodo page.
