The Flipped Classroom

Commonly known as "The Flipped Classroom", I prefer to call it "The Flipped Curriculum".

Meaning that the curriculum is not poured out upon the students but rather is raised up from the students.  A bottom up approach to curriculum and knowledge/learning. 


These resources are supplements to a previous talk and discussion at the Reform Symposium Conference . I've rerecorded it and watch it here.

Let's start here when thinking about the Flipped Curriculum and embracing "informal learning". 


Here are some recommend resources and readings for learning about the Flipped Classroom

-- The Inverted Classroom (2000 - original reference and description)      Flipped ScoopIT


--  A student's perspective            How teachers are hacking their own textbooks


--Rejecting the flipped classroom   Ira Socol       Flipped? End of a love affair
-- Flipped Thinking: Daniel Pink and Karl Fisch    The Flipped Classroom Prezi

-- The Flipped Classroom Model. The full story.    The Flipped High School site

-- The Flipped Classroom webinar      Ira Socol voices caution about this model


-- The Flipped Classroom Wiki          Beyond The Videos        The Flipped Classroom: 4 Steps


-- The Future of Learning : Sugata Mitra   - A portal to media literacy; Michael Wesch  


-- Becoming Unflippable        Inductive Teaching / Learning      Baam Ed Tech podcast

-- Why an educator is flipping Colorado's classrooms       Empirical evidence flipping works

The main tenent behind the Flipped Curriculum is that learning is first done by the student in a self directed fashion. Teacher intervention only happens later, if at all.

A nice google hangout on the Flipped Classroom. Thanks to all who participated and get the table of contents and event info. here -

Comment by ddeubel on September 19, 2016 at 12:53pm

There are a lot of "flipped" conferences being held these days.  Often termed "Ed Camps" or "unconferences" and participants meet and discuss - there is no expert led presenting. 

Here are my two posts on this topic.  

1. What if?  A new way to think about PD and conferences.

2.  What if?  The flipped conference. Part 2

A recent article in the Canadian newspaper the Globe and Mail- highlighting one teacher's Flipped Classroom.

A great article about the Flipped Classroom with lots of nice examples. I love this quote.....


“Most people go into it thinking the biggest part is making the videos. But really, the biggest part is what you do with your class time now that you have that free time,” Cockrum says.

Caution on adopting the Flipped Classroom

This was a VERY engaging discussion about the issues surrounding the Khan Academy and more so - self directed, technology driven education.
