My Flipped Classroom

At the ECIS Technology conference, I attended a workshop on the flipped classroom and was fully intrigued.  In a flipped classroom, all or some of the homework is a video or online simulation that “teaches” what you would normally teach in class.  Then, in class the kids focus on activities, projects and practice problems that would generally be homework.  This way, there is nobody sitting at home stuck on how to figure out a math problem, or even worse practicing doing it wrong.  After the conference, I decided to adopt a flipped classroom method for my math block. Stop by my blog – Raki’s Rad Resources to see how I’m making it work , pick up some links to great video tutorials already made and ready for you and to find out how my students are making videos like this one:
